Question about Sharp R-1480 Microwave Oven
We took it apart and the door latch looks ok. No breaks or cracks. Don't know about the switchs.
We can set a cook time and the light comes on, the timer works by the heat doesn't start and the turntable does not turn.
The problem is the primary (bottom) interlock switch, or possibly its mount may have a broken tab. The tab is hard to see, since it's on the underside of the switch.
We have the service manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.
You will need the free Acrobat Reader to view or print it in case you don't have it already.
The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics.
