Sharp R-202EW microwave croaking- roller needs replacing?

Our office microwave makes this croaking sound when it is on. I notice one of the wheels on the roller doesn't turn too good. A new roller cost $30, any other way around this? When the microwave is on without the roller, it works great.

    Samsung model smh9207st. One wheel keeps falling off the tray support ring. Is there a way fix it without having to replaced the whole ring? Wheel looks fine, just doesn't fit snug enough to stay on the ring. Thanks

You could remove the new turntable support but without replacing it (part # FROLPA101WRKZ) you just won't get even heating.

One option might be to remove the support, place in another (larger) glass tray or other microwave safe plate upside-down, then put the existing tray on top of that.

That will raise the food up. Then be sure you don;t place the food in the center. It will heat better if it's a little left of center.

Does it have a "Custom Help" pad on the keypad?

If so, try pressing that and following the menu prompts. You may need to hit Custom Help then 1.

If not, you may have to unplug it for a minute, plug it back in, then try again.

Microwave stopped working

Chances are the thermal cutout (thermal fuse) on the magnetron opened up. It may or may not also indicate a bad magnetron. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa:

Sharp microwave

If it died as soon as you hit the Start pad, it probably has a shorted high-voltage capacitor. If it died a few seconds after you hit Start, it may be a shorted high-voltage transformer. Can you describe in more detail what happened? Have you checked the outlet for power? Have you checked the fuse inside? I'm happy to help you.

SharpR-202 EL (W)

I did a lot of searching for this model and got some confusing results. You might want to look at the model R202M owner's manual online at: If you have an American model R-202EL or R-202EW, then you can buy an owner's manual from Tritronics at and it is part # TINSEA919WRRZ . If this does not help, there are a couple of other options: 1. If you could post which country you are in or which country you bought this in, that might help. 2. Also, if you have a digital camera, you could take a photo of the control panel and post it here, that might help us help you. All in all, if your microwave seems to be dead, it may have a blown fuse inside. The light should come on when you open the door. Please let us know how it goes.
