This is a problem in one of the damper-related components, most likely the switch, but it may also be the motor or the damper door.

The damper is a door inside that opens or closes depending on cooking mode. If the controller senses that the door is not in the right position, it will shut down the cook cycle.

Sharp-made models stop after 59 seconds.

See the attached sample photo for a typical damper assembly.

We have the equivalent Sharp service manual for these Dacor models and have uploaded it to our site here.

You will need the

If a switch is all you need, we offer a universal type for only $5 postpaid which you can order here.

Sharp microwave r1870 only runs for 59 seconds


If it consistently runs for exactly 59 seconds, and shuts off, it's probably the control panel.

If it runs approximately that length of time, you might have a defective thermal protector on the magnetron, or the magnetron is running too warm for some reason.

Microwave stops after 59 seconds


Check that a "favourite" setting has not been selected. The unit may think that is the time that you want to cook. Im not sure about your model but see if there is any clear or cancel buttons to clear any pre programmed selections. If not, unplug the machine for 15 minutes to reset the controller and try it again.

My sharp will only run for 59 seconds and then shuts off. It will heat up what ever you are heating but shuts off after 59 secounds no matter how many minutes you program into it.Is there a simple solution...


Yes the timer has the problem, now a day it is built in on microcontroller if your microwave is digital control. The only you can do is send it to nearest service center in your area where they have that parts.
I do hope my advice help you.

This mircowave shuts off after 59 seconds all of the time ????


Change the Damper Motor and switch. Cost is approx $30.00 and you must remove the microwave from the mounting bracket and remove the cover to gain access to the motor and switch.

Amana OTR Convection Microwave runs 59 seconds and shuts off


This sounds like either a thermistor or a damper switch/motor problem.
Amana's technical support line is 866-426-2621. This is the commercial side but they should be able to get you in touch with the domestic side.

Sharp model R-1871 shuts off every 59 seconds


This is a problem in one of the damper-related components, either the switch or motor or the damper door may be binding.

The damper is a door inside that opens or closes depending on cooking mode. If the controller senses that the door is not in the right position, it will shut down the cook cycle.

Sharp models stop after 59 seconds.

See the attached sample drawing for a typical damper assembly.

We have the applicable service manuals for these models and have uploaded it to our site here and here to help you.

If a switch is all you need, we offer a universal type for only $5 postpaid which you can order here.

59 Second shut off


This is a problem in one of the damper-related components, most likely the switch, but it may also be the motor or the damper door.

The damper is a door inside (on the right side in your model) that opens or closes depending on cooking mode. If the controller thinks that the door is not in the right position, it will shut down the cook cycle in 59 seconds.

See the attached sample photo.
