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.

sounds like the control board, but most times the magnetron fails and if a fuse failed then it needs a capacitor too

My Sharp carousal microwave model R 1482 goes on and off on its own. When cooking the steam from boiling water will set the micro off like I am pushing buttons on it.


If it's just the hood vent exhaust fan coming on, that's normal due to a temperature sensor (the hood vent exhaust TCO / thermostat).

If other functions on the microwave are coming on, then the keypad and / or controls may be shorting due to moisture and / or heat, and that needs to be addressed.

You should always run the microwave oven's hood vent exhaust fan whenever you're cooking on the stove top.

If you do, and the trouble persists, I would suspect the controls.

The service manual is at our site and we have uploaded it here to help you.

You can order any needed parts from the Sears Parts Direct Web siteimage-4235112-10659157 or Encompass here or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

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.

GE MIcrowave model JVM1631BJ01 hood lights won't work


The part that controls that is goes through your control panel on your microwave. For the lights to come on to start with the door being closed switches have to be working right and when you press start the lights come one. When the microwave is through cooking and you open then close the door then the lights should go out. The logic IC on the control panel board that detects all these events is not being reset correctly. Unless you get a microwave tech to track down the component on the control panel circuit board it is not something that you could do on your own since it takes voltage and signal checks with the proper equipment and then some soldering and desoldering of the defective component(s). Good luck and God bless.

Hood lights do not turn off...


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

This is far less than a replacement circuit board, assuming it's even available anymore.

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.

Microwave problem


Is it possible that grease or moisture got into the controls? This can happen when cleaners are sprayed directly on the keypad; when boiling is done on the stovetop without the hood vent fan being on; when the hood vent filter is clogged; or due to restricted airflow in exhaust. The best way to check the airflow is to turn the hood vent fan on and use your hand to feel at the exhaust outlet outside the home. Moisture can cause the keypad or control board to short to some degreee, and produce odd results. It may clear up, but sometimes it requires that the keypad be replaced or that the board be professionaly cleaned. 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 repair microwave control boards for customers nationwide for $39.95.
