Question about Microwave Ovens
After disconnecting the oven from the powerpoint to move it, when plugged back in you cant set the clock as per instructions. The oven still works but only if I press the reheat button. The start button does not operate.
Sounds likein the moving you loostened wires in the front panel or flexed the circuit board inside. You will need to open the control panel and inspect it. It could also be just some dirt or dust getting on the controls....blow it out with clean dry compressed air!

SOURCE: Some buttons work, some don't.
The keypad may be bad. Most often they go bad due to moisture from cleaners being sprayed directly on them or steam from the cooktop when the vent fan is not used.
They can also go bad when the unit is stored in an unheated environment where there's a lot of air temperature change (hot during the day, cold at night, etc.)
It may also be some residue on the connections where the keypad plugs into the control board. Unplugging then replugging the keypad can sometimes clean them.
In other cases, a new keypad is needed.

I have this model. Press clear then press Auto/Clock. Enter in the time eg 700 then press Auto/Clock again. The time should now be set

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that\'s usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.
If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that\'s usually a failing high-voltage transformer.
Here are some links you or a friend can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:

They have that manual their site, but it's only in French!
If you don't speak French, then visit the manual download page and put in only "SM807" in the search box.
The manual for either the SM80703 or SM80704 may be close enough to yours to work.
You will need the free Adobe Reader to view or print it.

is a problem in one of the damper-related components, either the switch
or motor or the damper door may be binding.
The damper is a door inside that opens or closes depending on cooking mode. If the controller senses that the door is not in the right position, it will shut down the cook cycle.
Sharp models stop after 59 seconds.
See the attached sample drawing for a typical damper assembly.
We have the applicable service manuals for these models and have uploaded it to our site here and here to help you.
If a switch is all you need, we offer a universal type for only $5 postpaid which you can order here.

Replacing the turntable motor.
The motor assembly is fixed to the base
of the oven usually with two screws and access i obtained by removing
the inspection plate directly beneath the motor. It is usally a plug
in synchronus motor that revolves at a few revs per minute but the
plastic cogs in the motors gear box fail and the motor assembly must
be replaced. They are fairly inexpensive and obtainable usually from
a domestic appliance repair shop.
If you feel confident, disconnect it from the mains power, remove anything in the cavity and turn it upside down if it is a tabletop model, a little more complicated if it is built in!
Remove the inspection plate and disconnect the motor. Remove the motor and go and get a new one. Re fit it and put the microwave back in its position. Plug it back in, with the turntable and plate. Put a cup of water on the plate inside of the oven and heat for 20 seconds to check the plate goes round.
Hope this helps.
