Question about Sharp R-1492 Microwave Oven
I WOULD SAY SO! Most likely the power inverter board shorted out.
Sounds like perhaps someone put something with metal inside the unit without knowing and turned it on. Doing this tends to overheat the power inverter board causing a short in the system.
Be safe than sorry, replace the unit with a new one for around $100US. Lowes Home Improvement centers have some that are very inexpensive and are available in brushed stainless steel to match most kitchens.
