Question about Sharp R-530ES Microwave Oven
After hitting the START button, the light comes on and the timer counts down, but no other operation- no heat, no fan, etc.
You have a bad secondary interlock (lower door switch) or its mount is damaged or out of alignment.
We have the service manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.
You will need the free Acrobat Reader to view or print it in case you don't have it.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.
Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.
There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.
The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.
Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.
If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.
