    Microwave was on, shut off without beeping. Checked it out, had kicked the gfi switch, reset it. Still won't work but everything else does. Even the timer starts counting down, turntable doesn't spin and microwave isn't kicking on.

This is probably due to a bad door switch, most likely the top one. The microwave got hot because the cooling fan was not running. 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 You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your model number here: http://www3.sears.com/

My microwave stopped working you can input time but when you push start nothing happens it has power and everything just will not start its like the start button does not work


Possibly a bad door switch behind the holes where the latch hooks go into. Usually with the bad switch the timer counts down but nothing runs. It all depends on which switch is bad. Usually 3 switches inside.

Sharp Carousel R530BK microwave won't cook unless light pressure is kept on the door button.


There are door switches and one of them is evidently out of adjustment or the little actuator arm on it is.

Microwave timer works but will motor will not run/cook.


If everything works on the unit, but you do not receive any heat or possibly the turntable does not turn you have a faulty magnetron (controls heat) and a faulty motor (controls turntable). You would require service on the unit, if parts are available. Some microwaves are so small in cubic foot size, that manufacturer's do not have parts available for purchase/repairs.

Sharp Microwave stopped working. lights up, counts down. Fine'


High voltage power supply for the magnetron is likely problem. Multi-thousand-volt section--be careful.

Combination microwave oven


What is the nature of the failure?

Can you enter cooking the time?

If so, what happens when you press Start?

Does it run (count down, lights on, turntable on ) but not heat?

Brand and model might help, too, but the basics are the same, so we're happy to help you with more information.
