    HI

    I was trying to cook a whole egg and put it in a slightly covered bowl with water and egg inside and put the microwave on for 4 mnts. It exploded aftr 2 mnts and the door slung open with a bang and heat. It is not turning on since then. We are unable to close the door.
    Pls suggest what to do. It is Sharp's 1.6 cubic R-308NK, which was bought only 4 mnths ago frm Traget. I retain the original box with barcode but not the sales receipt.

I would suspect the fuse or the thermostat.

The fuse should be located on a filter board near the back of the unit where the cord comes in.

The thermostat should be located on the left rear corner of the chassis above the cooking cavity.

We have two service manuals for this type of model and have uploaded them to our site here and here to help you.

You will need the free Acrobat Reader to view or print them in case you don't have it already.

Since these are not exactly the same models as yours, the part number for the thermostat may not be the same. You should verify them with the distributor.

Somebody exploded an egg in Kitchenaid Microwave combo oven, and circuitboard went bad. Power but no heat. Coincidence?


The circuit board is in a separate section so the motherboard can't come into contact with the exploded egg. Was any liquid cleaning solution sprayed inside to clean up the mess? There might be some crevices where cleaning solution spray could work its way into the circuit board section since it's very close by. Always use a damp cloth instead of saturating the oven with cleaner.

Hi, I believe you have done your microwave in. That was not a good thing to do. In all hand books it say, do not put a raw egg in it's shell in the microwave or it will explode. You will have to replace the wave gun (magnetron). Depending how much damage you did there maybe more to replace.

mcdevito75 here, It could be the light sockets are dirty from cooking fumes, oil etc, remove power from the sockets and clean them with alcholol and cotton swabs or paper towels etc.

Egg cookers


I found the instructions
Sprinkle a few grains of salt on bottom of egg cooker. (Salt attracts microwaves and is necessary to help cook bottom of egg)

Break egg into egg cooker.
One egg in micro at a time.

Will fork piece yolk and white to bottom of cooker, three times. _ This is very important.

Line up notches on egg cooker lid and cup then twist until locked

Micro on High for 30 seconds

Let stand 10 seconds
If bottom of egg is not cooked turn egg over with a spoon and microwave on high for another 10 to 20 second or until cooked.

Microwave works for 30 seconds and then turns off


The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.

Microwave blew up after cooking an egg


Yes the internal fuse will have blown. I would also think the door latch switches and monitor switch will also need re adjustment
