Microwave does not work


Need more information, like brand and model number. Also, does the inside cavity light go out when you close the door? If not, your problem is probably a bad door switch. If it DOES go out, but the microwave doesn't do anything when you press START, then you may have a bad keypad, control board, or it may still be a bad door switch (a different door switch - there are 3 or 4 door switches in most (all?) microwave ovens). Probably need to have a professional microwave repairman look at it.

You will need to remove microwave to access casing, remove casing and check door micro-switch. The switch activator will need adjusting to enable door interlock to activate.

Not sure which relay switch you refer to but there is a switch that tells the unit the door is closed, that is your problem.

When I press start on my sharp R-305K microwave nothing happing,


Dead appliance, power on wall outlet.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!

Attempt this only if you are competent.

If your appliance has absolutely no functions at all, remove it from the mains supply, remove the case and see where the mains lead goes in to the appliance and follow the cable until you find the main fuse.
ONLY USE THE SAME TYPE AND RATING OF FUSE TO REPLACE IT.
The usual cause of this fuse failure is the door switches are contaminated or sticking. Check the door switches before putting power back on to the appliance.
Hope this helps.

Turns on by itself and turntable does not rotate


You may have a control board issue. Thank God for safety switches.
This is a problem that an integrated circuit tech. can repair, but it may be costly.
Decide how much you want to put into this oven vs. buying a new one.

Contact me once you decide and I can help you find a service center.

Thank you,
