Just tonight I noticed that the door open button on the front of our Sharp R530 is acting up. Basically the problem is this...when we go to turn the microwave on the light inside will come on and the timer will start counting down, but it won't actually turn on and spin until you gently press and hold the open button. So basically the microwave itself works, but we have to stand there with the button until whatever is inside is finished. I also shortly observed the microwave RUNNING with the door open. It shut off when I pressed the stop button. My gut tells me that the actual button needs to be replaced. Is there also a latch that attaches to the button that actually pops the door open? Any input would be appreciated, it looks like these parts are very cheap. Thank you!
