Question about Sharp R-1480 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Clicking sound sporadically

My microwave convection oven runs fine; however, after I put an extremely heavy cast iron skillet in to bake, the turntable now will stop running sometimes and a clicking sound starts. I can then open the door and move the items cooking a little, and it will start rotating and not clicking again for a few minutes. Then the clicking starts back and the turntable stops running.

Thiis only happens when food is placed in the microwave for cooking. If you run the oven with nothing on the turntable, it doesn't click and rotates perfectly.

I think the heavy skillet might have warped the turntable possibly? I like this convection microwave and hate to buy a new one if it's not necessary.

Thanks

    I was running it on convection bake at the time. I knew not to put metal into it while it is running as a microwave.

    Cast iron skillets DO NOT go into a microwave oven . No metal goes into a micrwave oven. Unleas you , of course are running it on convection only?

That particular skillet is just too heavy a load for the turntable system to handle.

I would suggest a lighter skillet or a different container, otherwise, the motor or shaft or both will be damaged.

It is of course perfectly okay to put metal in a microwave (after all, that's what they're made of!) but you just have to do it only according to the instructions in the owner's manual.

And as you know, metal in convection mode poses no problem at all.

You just need to use a lighter or different container.

What is convection cookong


A convection microwave is a combination of a standard microwave oven and a convection oven. It allows food cooked in the convection microwave to be cooked quickly, yet come out browned or crisped as in a convection oven. However, most cakes cannot be baked in a microwave oven - only those without an open grain structure, such as brownies. There are microwaves which contain electric browning baking elements. A true convection microwave has a high velocity forced air fan to circulate the hot air uniformly.

You should be using convection mode first of all. It's not clear from your post if you are. Also looks like you're oven is baking at higher temperature than it says. Try 170 degrees for 13-14 mins instead.

Panasonic dimension 4 microwave/convection oven Micvrowave part of oven not working, convection oven/grill fine. Is it a problem with the magnetron? Is there some form of internal fuse?


It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

I seasoned my new stainless steel skillet in the oven now I have built up oil stuck to the sides inside the skillet. How can I remove this without damaging the stainless steel finish? HELP!


You only need to season a cast iron skillet, not stainless steel. Soak it in hot soapy water and use something like a mister clean pad to clean it.

Convection baking only one one side


I'm not familiar with this specific model, but I would assume it has two convection heating elments and one elment is burned out or there is a problem in one side of the wiring that powers the convection elements.
