The problem is damage to the control circuit board. This damage happens usually when the lamps are removed or installed without disconnecting the oven from the power line first. We regularly repair these boards for this very problem for customers from across the country for $32.50. We have an important file called "safety.txt" which you can find by a doing a search for "microwave safety.txt" on Yahoo.com. It's important information to consider before proceeding.

    I wanted to give an updated answer, since this is such a popular post:



    The problem is almost certainly on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.



    This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.



    This often can affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on.

Sharp R-1611 Microwave oven display


<--- Happy to help you. The part number you listed is a glass display window, not the display.

Unless you get it repaired (info here) then the control unit would have to be replaced, but I don't think they're available any more.

The original part number of the control unit was was CPWBFB037MRU0, which was superseded by part number CPWBFB037/KIT.

Sharp microwave R-410LK fan and light do not turn off.


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

  1. Main control boardIf your microwave runs for a few seconds and stops, the first thing to check is the main control board to ensure that a shortage has not occurred. If the part is defective then it will need to be replaced to prevent continual shut offs. If this is not the issue, the next step would be to check for a faulty touchpad.
  2. Touchpad/Control panelIf the control board is not the issue and your microwave continues to shut off after running for only a few seconds, the next thing to check is your touchpad, which is also known as a control panel. Although uncommon for this issue, symptoms are usually that the display and some buttons are working properly; however, when selected some buttons are not functioning. If this is the case the touchpad will need to be replaced.

How do I get our Sharp Carousel R-1611 off the wall. We don't have the manual and the Sharp site doesn't recognize the model.


You need to remove the hood (the grille cover above the microwave door and above the control panel) by lifting up on the bottom of the hood (the plastic should flex pretty easily) and popping it off. On the far left and right you should see two phillips screws, most likely bronze colored. You need to remove them (they are quite long) completely. The microwave will still be sitting on its support arms (which enter the chasis of the microwave from the rear). Once the screws are removed you need to lift the microwave up and pull forward - it should come off of the supports, but you might have to jiggle it a bit.

Don't forget to unplug the microwave and disconnect any ducting before lifting it off of its supports.

Quite often this is due to a bad door switch. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure.

 

If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

 

We also have the complete service manual for this model at our site.
