Re: microwave gets no heat

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 (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?

How do i replace a fuse on sunbeam microwave

If it does not heat, the magnetron tube died. Not worth repairing unless under warranty. Generally the only fuse is a main fuse. If it blew, the entire microwave would be dead.

Might want to check the 20A fuse by the power supply before you haul it somewhere and they charge you a service charge for a cheap fuse...

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.
