Question about Sharp Microwave Ovens
is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch
mount (which are pretty simple problems to fix) or occasionally a
problem on the control panel.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.
Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.
There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.
The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.
Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.
