Question about Sharp R-1460 Microwave Oven

Open Question

The vent fan stopped working on my over the range Sharp R-1460-A

I need to know where the fan is located and what the problem could be. I push the fan button and the fan will not come on. I do not have the owners manual to locate where the motor is in the microwave. Please help...

    The vent fan is located behind the grille.

    Have you recently had trouble with the cooktop lights?

You can call Sharp and ask them what current models if any will be drop-in replacements,either using the same mounting hardware or at least the same space.

SOURCE: Sharp Microwave R-1480 ~ Removing

You need to remove the grill above the door to find two more screws that go straight to the back wall plate. They will be on the left and right side. There are chrome or a gold color. That is the only other way that they mount to the wall.

Good Luck

SOURCE: Microwave doesn't work

the outer casing has to be removed, inside you will find a large fuse 10A> this protects the transformers and magnetrons, also you will find some smaller control circuit fuses, they are normally mounted on the circuit board at the rear of the control panel.

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

Otherwise, it will need to be checked. I would suspect the magnetron thermostat, cavity thermostat and fuse.

To find helpful exploded view diagrams and get part numbers, you can just enter your full model number at the Sears parts site.

It's often more economical to order parts from Encompass here or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

Measurements to replace R 1460 over the range microwave


Almost all over the range micros are 30 inches wide. They did make a few 36 inch models but most are 30. Top to bottom back measurement can be between 16 to 18 inches. Most makes are similar in size. Back wall mounting plate will have to be exchanged since each company has a slightly different design but the wall plate comes with the new unit along with mounting hardware.

I have a 1995 Sharp Carousel R-1440. Our power went out then when it came on our microwave it no longer working properly. the clock works but when the door is closed the cooling fan starts running- it...


Yes your oven's controller is probably malfunctioning you need to replace the SYSTEM BOARD but I personally suggest to buy an other oven.... the system board will be hard to find and expensive...

See if other electronics is acting funny since the power loss... you could CLAIM the damage from the insurance company

Good luck!!

Model R-1460, when I shut the door it runs but doesn't heat up. What needs to be done to fix it?


Do you mean that when you close the door, the fan comes on? If so, it sounds like a bad door switch. Probably the secondary interlock switch.
This failure is caused by opening the door when the unit is in cook mode. On ALL microwaves, not just one or two brands.......
Be sure to push the stop button before opening the door to add or stir... Or wait for the cook cycle to end. (This is why microwaves have a two step function on the stop/clear button. Hit stop once to stop cook mode and twice to reset timer).
You should use an ohm meter to check all 3 switches. The switch can be either stuck 'closed' or physically closed but not 'making' electrically.

My sharp R1650 has no power including light and vent


Thjere is a large Ceramic fuse on top of the chassis The outer cover has to be removed to access it The cost of replacement is about $20-30. But it would be better to know WHY this blew. replacing it may cause it to fail again immediately if there is a short circuit somewhere in the unit

R-1460


Check fuse. Remove 3 screws from the plastic grill located at along the top front of the unit. Remove the phillips head screw above the control panel. Slide up and pull out to partially remove control panel. You will see a white fuse. Replacement is CD3G 125v 20amp or BUSS ABC 20 or Little Fuse 314020 at 250v 20a. Radio shack caries the ABC.
