    Was boiling water on stove top and exhaust was not on. Started microwave and heard a loud "pop". Everything works but doesn't cook. It is a little louder than usual.

    Was cooking noodles on right rear stove top and exhaust was not on. Started microwave to heat food and heard two very loud "pops". Everything including the inside light and exhaust fan works but doesn't cook. It is a little louder when trying to heat (which don't work) than usual. It had made popping noises a year or so ago but kept on working so I thought it was ok until today.

    I was also cooking noodles on the right rear burner and heard a pop, then no heat. Everything else works and the microwave is obviously louder.

    When you hit Start to cook, do the inside light and turntable come on?

    Any unusual noises? Is it louder or quieter than usual?

    These answers will help me judge whether it's in the high voltage
    section (magnetron, transformer, or diode) or the control section
    (door switch or control board relay or connection).

Found the answer by calling a Sharp technician and they said it was the magnetron tube, which is not worth fixing :( Thought I'd pass this on to anyone that has yet to find out.

SHARP MICROWAVE MODEL R1406 POPPED, NOW NO HEAT BUT EVERY THING ELSE IS FINE . CALLED IN TECH TO LOOK AT IT $65.00 30 SEC LATTER TOLD ME IT NEEDS A MAGNETRON $100.00,CAPACITOR $50.00, POWER DIODE $30.00, $120.00 INSTALLATION=$300.00

Wattage for mc 1000b microwave


By the name I would think that it is a 1000 watt Microwave. Wattage as in cooking power is what you wanted? Running wattage, a 15 amp circuit will work fine. A 120 volt, 1000 watt microwave will use 13.4 amps (1,600 watts) of electricity in a full power cooking cycle. I think that covers everything! ..:)

Auto Cook not working


If autocook is not working and everything else it, there is an issue with the sensor in the oven that detects the steam, The emission of steam is what triggers that unit to shut off. If it wont cook on any settings then the issue is with the microwave generator not putting out enough power. This could be from a lot of things.

That's the waveguide cover you're talking about. It covers the opening in the side of the cooking cavity where the microwaves enter. The oven will work without it, but if you don't have the cover in place, food particles can get into the waveguide and cause problems. You can buy a replacement here.

Sharp R-1871 microwave/convection oven. Microwave will not work


This may be due to the microwave section not working. Check the high voltage diode if it is ok, replace the Magneton.

Microwave runs, but does not cook anything. says sensor error


The magnetron, which is the device which creates the microwaves might have got damaged. If so, it should be replaced. Magnetron is the costliest part in a Microwave oven, check the price before before servicing it.

I hope this will solve your issue.

Good Luck.

If my solution proves useful please accept it.

Sharp 1870 just quit cooking and no turntable


The fact that the microwave and convection both do not heat indicated that the oven is in demo mode, check the user manual, otherwise it will possibly be a relay not triggering, may need a pcb replacement, check Demo mode 1st....Phil
