I also have the Sharp Carosoul oven, symptoms - fan runs, controls are fine but the turntable stopped turning and it did not heat. It was not the switches, fuse, but in fact a sagging door that misaligned with the door switches. The true cause was a warn top hinge. As a temporary fix, I adjusted the bottom hinge (3 screws underneath), straightened the door, and now it works again.

We have a Sharp R-410 LK and it stopped working except for the clock and timer. The carousel doesn't work or anything else! Could a major part have gone out or could it be something simple?


I couldn't find the wiring diagram of this exact model, but looking at a similar model diagram, it appears that the main fuse in the oven has blown or a safety interlock has failed. The clock runs all of the time of course, and so it is powered by a branch circuit. The main fuse and interlocks protect the rest of the oven (and you!). The fuse could have failed because of temporary overload or because a critical component failed, in which case you would need some profession help. If the oven is fairly new, it may pay to enlist a service tech, because some critical failures involve relatively inexpensive parts. You may find it budget-worthy to take it to a shop you trust that does this service, rather than pay for a house call. Good service techs can usually track this problem down in a few minutes. Microwave circuitry is comparatively simple (but dangerous if you don't know what you are doing).

My sharp carousel II microwave no longer heats food. Do I need to buy a new one?


The problem maybe the magnetron, or the inverter board if 7 years old or less, and possibly the keypad control board, by the time you add parts and labour cheaper to replace the microwave oven in the long run.

My Oster microwave (model #OGG21401) doesn't heat. When operating the light will turn on and the carousel will turn but food will not get hot. Can you provide a solution to my problem? Thank you.


Check the door safety interlock switches for proper operation. #1 trouble with microwaves that operate in all respects but no heat.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

Sharp R-340H Microwave has power but does not heat food. Carousel working.


The magnetron is the likely problem, "heats food" the other two items to check is the high voltage capacitor and diode. It usually is cheaper to replace.

No heating, no clock, no timer, otherwise fine!


One of your door interlock switches is defective . I would suggest having it repaired by a qualified repair tech in your area.
