Question about Sharp KB-6002LS 1000 Watts Convection / Microwave Oven
Starts about three seconds after turning microwave on. Almost sounds like a vibration, like something came loose.
Someone would have to open the unit to "hear" where it is coming from, possible fan issue or even the power unit inside.

This is most lkely caused by the shorted high voltage rectifier diode or magnetron.

Okay, first we need to separate the situations. You were boiling water on the stove and had the range hood fan running to **** up the steam. Then you put something in the microwave to heat and you heard a pop and then zip-o.
The water on the stove has nothing to do with the situation, the fan you turn on is not part of the microwave, so it has nothing to do with the microwave.
The pop you heard and then the humming suggests the magnetron failed. You said you found a blow fuse and replaced it and still nothing, right? The magnetron is the most likely culprit...I would think it is safe to say that the magnetron shorted and drew enough current to blow the fuse.
Replace the magnetron and if that doesn't work, let me know here. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Is there a recall on
We had an R-240 or R-250. I can't tell you which because the other night while not in use it caught our kitchen on fire. It was just plugged in and not in use. The insurance guy said that this can happen. Maybe don't buy the R series from Sharp. Or keep it unplugged when not in use.
