If it goes dead or blows the breaker (or GFI) when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control
panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Then you can get to the door switches to check them.

There should also be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

How to remove sharp 1480 microwave from the wall


If this is a built in mounted under an overhead cabinet, Just open the above cabinets and there will be 2 long screws facing downward that hold it in place, if it is a built in that is framed in then you will need to remove the frame and the brackets behind the frame that are holding it in place and then slide it out.

Says "Door open more than 5 minutes" when it hasn't


You are going to have to replace the door switch. The switch is staying open even when it should be closed. Talking about electrical current. Once that part is replaced everything will work just fine.

The power went out on the microwave. We were cooking potatoes in there, and it just went dead. We were using the Jenn-Air oven below it at the same time, but that is still working.


There's a circuit breaker behind the microwave. Yup, that's where
they put it, believe it or not. The microwave and the oven are joined
together so you have to pull both of them out to get to the circuit
breaker. There are screws that hold the microwave and oven to the
cabinet it's mounted in. There should be 4 around the microwave
door and 6 around the oven door. The oven door needs to be
removed to get to the 2 bottom screws. The oven door has a metal
tab on it's 2 hinges that must be pushed down to unlatch the oven
door hinges from the 2 (per side) posts that the oven door pivots
on to open and close. After the door has been removed you can
take out the last 2 screws, you should also remove the vent at
the very bottom of the oven by removing it's 2 screws. Make sure
you have a least 2 strong people to pull the whole unit out, it's
also a good idea to have something sturdy that's the same height
as the bottom of the oven to rest it on after you pull it out. You
don't really have to pull the unit completely out, but it helps. You'll
see the small circuit breaker on top of the oven at the rear of the
microwave, just press it to reset it. Putting the unit back in the
cabinet is the reverse of the removal, but be sure you don't pinch
the armored conduit that contains the gas line for the oven. It'll
probably want to fall behind the oven as you push it back into
place like it did at my friends house. What we did was I pulled it
up and held it at the back of the microwave while 2 guy's pushed
the unit back in. Fortunately, it stayed in place after they pushed
it part way in and I had to pull my arm out of the way. It's a really
crappy place to put a circuit breaker for the microwave. I mean,
come on! You couldn't put it under the microwaves bottom cover
plate? There's room for it there! Anyway, that's how it went at my
friends house. I hope this helps you fix you're problem.

Microwave turns on and counts down but won't heat up/cook


Ok just figured this out! It is a problem with the alignment on the lower door switch. I took the cabinet off and lifted up on the door switch slightly and voila! It works. You could probably fix this without taking it apart, just lift up on the door ever so slightly. I hope this works for you.

How do i change a fuse in a kitchenaid overhead microwave


Hello,On the front of the microwave above the door is a louvered panel. You need to remove the panel ( usually it just pulls straight off ) and inside on the left you will see a metal rod that's bent 90 degrees. That is the lock handle. While lifting on the front of the microwave pull that handle out to release the lock. The front of the microwave will tilt down, you may have to help it start tipping. Once the microwave is tipped down you have to lift the back that is against the wall to unhook it from the wall mounting panel. Be careful to feed the power cord through the cabinet hole as your lowering it. Good luck and let me know how this works.

There are a series of switches in the door latch mechanism which are a safety interlock system. If the latch on the door is secure and not broken then it is in the latch mechanism itself. It is possible for the mechanism to come loose and stop the oven from working. The control panel will have to be removed and the mechanism adjusted for proper operation.

Alternately if the door hinges (screw in type) are not aligned properly then it can cause the same symptoms.

I am unable to locate your model in my reference, but there is usually one or two screws behind the grille that hold the control panel on if it is a vent hood style. If it is a cabinet style then the cabinet will have to be opened. Be sure to disconnect power at lease 1/2 hour before opening.

Removing Old Built-In Microwave


You did not note your Make and Model. As there are many different types, all I can give you are basic directions.
First make sure the Power Cord is UN-PLUGGED from the wall.

1. Remove the Top Vent Grille Cover. There are screws holding this on, either Three you can see (one on each side and one in the center), or Open the Door and look for screws at the top of the Frame that go Up Into the grille.
2. Look in cabinet above unit for screws that hold unit up. Usually two (one on each side, front), can be more. Remove.
3. Look where Top Vent Grille Cover was removed. There should be a Long Screw or Screw-Type Lock at each( top) corner. These hold the unit tight on the Wall-Mount Plate. Remove. You should have HELP at this point as you will slide the unit forward until it comes clear of the Support Arms.
GOOD LUCK!!
