Question about Sharp Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Sharp Microwave oven R-96STM Problem started after powercut. Whatever duration timer is set for, power always stops after 59secends. After pressing START button again, oven runs for a further 59seconds and stops again. This has to be repeated until the "duration set" has been reached. What is wrong, can it be fixed?

This is a problem in one of the damper-related components, most likely the switch, but it may also be the motor or the damper door.

The damper is a door inside that opens or closes depending on cooking mode. If the controller senses that the door is not in the right position, it will shut down the cook cycle.

Sharp models stop after 59 seconds.

See the attached sample photo for a typical damper assembly.

My microwave stopped working you can input time but when you push start nothing happens it has power and everything just will not start its like the start button does not work


Possibly a bad door switch behind the holes where the latch hooks go into. Usually with the bad switch the timer counts down but nothing runs. It all depends on which switch is bad. Usually 3 switches inside.

Sharp Carousel R530BK microwave won't cook unless light pressure is kept on the door button.


There are door switches and one of them is evidently out of adjustment or the little actuator arm on it is.

If your model number is in the Sharp R-1500 series, then that's a problem with the bottom door switch or its mount.

Unlocking child lock on the sharp microwave model R316FSC


The Sharp Microwave/Convection oven I have says to touch the Custom Help button, the number "1", then touch the Start Button. To turn off the child lock, press the Stop button.
Or just unplug it, wait 1 minute, and plug in.

No heating, no clock, no timer, otherwise fine!


One of your door interlock switches is defective . I would suggest having it repaired by a qualified repair tech in your area.

You probably have a bad damper switch, damper motor or damper. See the attached sample drawing. You can order parts for Sharp models from Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com.
