Sharp R-520KS - When the door is opened, the light and fan comes on and the carousel rotates. I don't know if microwaves are emitted. How can I stop the fan from coming on and the carousel from...


You can tell if microwaves are being emitted if you get warm standing in front of it (seriously). But I wouldn't recommend that unless you want to cook yourself.

First thing that comes to mind is the door interlocks are out of adjustment or bad. Home microwave ovens are not supposed to operate like that. Some commercial models start the fan right away and run it after the cooking cycle is completed but I've never heard of a consumer model that does that.

Find your closest servicer here and have them take a look.

My over the stove Sharp Carousel Model # R-1505F turn table stopped turning. What part do I need to replace. Also, I broke the glass turn table plate. What size is that and where can I order another...


Sears Parts Direct has the parts diagrams and many parts for the R-1505 microwave. The glass plate is part 4-3 ($33.99) on this page: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Sharp-Parts/Microwave-Parts/Model-R1505/0958/0123370/50019999/00001?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= .


Without more tests, I can't be completely positive but the turntable motor is the likely problem. That is part 1-4 on the list above. However, it could be a wiring problem with the wiring to the turntable motor.

Partstore.com has many of the parts as well: http://www.partstore.com/Model/Sharp/Sharp/R1505.aspx .

I hope this helps.

Are you talking about the light inside the microwave? The front vent I think will allow you to get to the bulb. Should be a couple of small scrrews holding the vent cover on, remove them take vent off. Start it up again and see if the light bulb wiring or socket is arcing

Microwave popped and now does not heat


Okay, first we need to separate the situations. You were boiling water on the stove and had the range hood fan running to **** up the steam. Then you put something in the microwave to heat and you heard a pop and then zip-o.

The water on the stove has nothing to do with the situation, the fan you turn on is not part of the microwave, so it has nothing to do with the microwave.

The pop you heard and then the humming suggests the magnetron failed. You said you found a blow fuse and replaced it and still nothing, right? The magnetron is the most likely culprit...I would think it is safe to say that the magnetron shorted and drew enough current to blow the fuse.

Replace the magnetron and if that doesn't work, let me know here. Good Luck!

How do I get our Sharp Carousel R-1611 off the wall. We don't have the manual and the Sharp site doesn't recognize the model.


You need to remove the hood (the grille cover above the microwave door and above the control panel) by lifting up on the bottom of the hood (the plastic should flex pretty easily) and popping it off. On the far left and right you should see two phillips screws, most likely bronze colored. You need to remove them (they are quite long) completely. The microwave will still be sitting on its support arms (which enter the chasis of the microwave from the rear). Once the screws are removed you need to lift the microwave up and pull forward - it should come off of the supports, but you might have to jiggle it a bit.

Don't forget to unplug the microwave and disconnect any ducting before lifting it off of its supports.

Sharp Carousel Microwave R-1460A no power, door switch went first


You will want to replace the fuse and door switches. You will not be able to run it without replacing door switches. You do not need a new microwave. Door switches go bad, it has nothing to do with radiation.

Microwave made a loud pop,won't heat,sounds like it's only on half power, makes a low intermittent hum


This is almost certainly a blown high voltage diode.
