Question about Sharp R-1610 Microwave Oven

Sharp 1470 over-the-range microwave - no power on panel

I was cleaning the microwave and removed the plastic vent cover on top front.
some plastic was broken and I thought it might have fallen behind control panel. Removed screw holding on panel and looked behind and saw nothing.
put panel back and carosel started by itself. then light came on and exhaust fan. nothing else on panel works, and can't turn off the carosel,light or fan.
checked fuse under panel and it was ok. Since I wasn't touching anything inside I didn't power off first.
any suggestions ? shoul we just give up and replace it. it was working fine before.
thanks in advance

    thank you very much for your help. I did not remove any wires initially when it quit working. I check the interlock switches with a multi-meter and all seem to be working as expected. I removed all connections. Examined the panel and reconnected all wires (your wiring diagram helped a lot)
    At least it is consistent. When I got it all back together it works or didn't work just as it had before.
    Oh well, it was worth a shot. This is the last time I clean the microwave....
    thanks again
    david

Did you unplug any wires when you took it apart?

Otherwise, I would think one or more of the connectors got unplugged when you removed the control panel.

Another thing that can happen on these models is a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under thebottom edge of the switch. It's usually the top door switch.

You can find the wiring diagram at our site here.

After you look into this, if you still need help, please write back with more details.

How do I check or replace a fuse in my Sharp R 1850A convection/microwave?


Unplug the microwave first.
Then carefully remove the exterior panel on the right of the unit.
The screw is at the top under the front grille/vent..
Behind this cover near the bottom there should be a ceramic fuse.
Carefully remove it and test it with an ohm meter for continuity.
If there is no continuity replace the fuse.

Hello - This may or may not be specifically for your model, however these are generics instructions that I found.

To replace the light bulb to the over the range microwave you will need to follow the steps below:

1. To replace light bulb, first disconnect power to the microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging.

2. Remove the vent grill mounting screws.

3. Pull the vent grill away from the unit.

4. Remove the charcoal filter by pushing it inwards, then turn and pull it away from the unit.

5. Open light cover located behind filter mounting by carefully pulling up on the front edge.

6. Remove old light bulb and replace only with equivalent 30 watt bulb available from part distributor. Bulbs are also available at most hardware stores or lighting centers.

7. Replacing the microwave oven light cover by carefully pushing into place. Replace the charcoal filter. Push the vent grill back into place (engaging both the bottom and top tabs) and replace the vent grill mounting screws.

Samsung Microwave SMH9187 error message (?) 5E


You can do this without removing unit from wall. First unplug unit. Next remove the two screws on the top of the unit closest to the front. These screws simply keep the up facing vent in place. Next slide the vent to the left (plastic latches on bottom hold in place) to allow vent to be removed. You should now see a single screw above the control panel. Remove it then open the microwave door. Gently slide the control panel up which will disengage the plastic latches on the panel sides. Suggest if you are going to remove the controller and replace take a picture before removing it so you know exactly how to reconnect all the wires.

How to remove a sharp r 1481 over the counter microwave


If you are referring to an over your stove combination microwave/ vent system then they are typically secured thru the cabinet above them. Try opening the cabinet directly over the oven ( you may need a step ladder to see the mounting hardware) and look near the front of that cabinet for two screws on the bottom of that cabinet. These two screws go thru the cabinet and support the front of the microwave oven. You may also see the power cord for that mircrowave oven plugged into a receptacle inside that cabinet. Unplug that cord and then begin unscrewing the two screws. ( it's best if you have a helper work with you).. as you unscrew them, the front of the microwave should begin to drop down a bit. Once the screws are removed, you should be able to lift the back panel up a little bit to free the microwave of the wall mounting bracket. Once that is doen, you will be able to remove the microwave. I am assuming that your microwave does not have any vent pipe secured to it. If it does, then you will need to seperate that from the microwave vent on top ( assuming it is venting thru the top) .. These microwaves can be vented in any of 3 ways, thru the top, outthe back or configured to vent back into the room. In any case, you should see ductwork while removing this from the cabinet. Hope this helps you get the job done...

How do I replace the door handle on microwave?


Once you follow the youtube instructions to remove the inside cover you are ready for the next step.
Remove the six small screws that are adjacent to the window. After this the front plastic is held in only by plastic clips to the metal door. The plastic clips and the screws together hold this together.

Remove the entire door by lifting up and move it to a flat service. If the top vent cover prevents this just remove the two screws on top of the microwave and pull the vent cover off.

With the door lying flat you can pull the plastic frame out on top and bottom and see how the clips work. Now just work you way around the frame until it separates.

Install handle and reassemble in reverse order.
