Question about Sharp R-1480 Microwave Oven
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.
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.

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.
