Question about Sharp R-520LW Microwave Oven
The touch pad works and the light comes on, but the fan does not run and there is no "cooking" power
Possibly the magnetron is worn out. Microwaves are rarely repairable economically.

Quite often this is due to a bad door switch. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure.
If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
We also have the complete service manual for this model at our site.
