    Mine tuns on, light comes on, turntalbe turns, but does'nt heat anything. also, it use to make just a standard humming noise when cooking, now the tone is louder, and lower pitched.

    mine does the same, it turns round, the light turns on, the motor sounds (a little louder than normal) but no heat is given out.




    What could be causing this?

    shut the door. light goes out. key in a time. press start. light comes on. fan comes on. turntable turns. food comes out cold. no heat. microwave is less than 2 months old. it appears to be a fairly common problem with emerson microwaves.

This could be due to a bad door switch, or a defective part in the high voltage section. You can find my helpful and detailed text file "doorsw.txt" by going to Yahoo.com (not Google) and searching for microwave doorsw.txt Some questions: When you enter the cooking tme and press START, does the inside light come on? The fan? Is it making any unusual noise?

    If the microwave appears to be working (ie: light comes on, turntable turns) but there is no heating of the food, it could possibly be your high voltage fuse - normally 5kv 700mA or 0.7A. Check and if faulty replace with same specification component. HariGB

My sharp carousel II microwave doesn't seem to have power. I checked the power source and that seems fine. Is there an internal fuse?


Is it dead, meaning no display, no light when you open the door and no beeps when you press a pad on the keypad?

We have the relevant service / repair manuals for this model and have uploaded it to our site here and here to help you.

They will give you safety info, step by step help in disassembly, troubleshooting tips, and part numbers.

Most computers will open these documents automatically, but you may need the free Adobe Reader

I would suspect the 20A ceramic line fuse or the magnetron temperature fuse.

You can order parts from Encompass here or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

20A ceramic fuses are available at local appliance part stores or places like Wal-Mart and Lowe's.
