SOURCE: Sharp Carousel R-1480 doesn't heat

A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Accessing some components for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions (similar to these) are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:

http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html
(if it's not shorted, it's probably okay)


http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/mag_test.html
(even if the magnetron passes these tests, it can still be bad. If you have high voltage and the diode is good, assume the magnetron is bad)

You would have to remove it from the wall to replace the magnetron, take off the outside cover, discharge the capacitor, then disconnect the magnetron's wires and mounting nuts.

We have the service manual for this model and have uploaded it for you here.

(Our site is down as I write this, but rest assured it is there.)

You can order parts for this brand from Encompass here or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

Most manufacturers can offer a "drop-in" replacement if you tell them your model number. Call Sharp toll free at 1-800-BE-SHARP (1-800-237-4277).

NOTE: FixYa's Web site is currently not notifying us when replies to our Clarification Requests are posted.

So please reply back directly to me with your brand and full model number from the tag in or on the unit for more help or free do-it-yourself tips or an estimate if required.

SOURCE: I need Magnetron for Sharp Microwave Model R-880B

If you need the magnatron, you may be better off buying a new microwave. The magnatron will cost almost as much as a complete new oven.

Sharp microwave r1870 only runs for 59 seconds


If it consistently runs for exactly 59 seconds, and shuts off, it's probably the control panel.

If it runs approximately that length of time, you might have a defective thermal protector on the magnetron, or the magnetron is running too warm for some reason.

Sharp KB-5121K won't heat -- everything else works.


It may be the fuse supplying the magnetron, or the magnetron itself which has failed. Another suspect is the high voltage capacitor in this circuit.

Don't try to fix this yourself as the internals of a microwave are dangerous, with high voltages even when unplugged.

What keeps blowing my fuse on my Sharp R-1480 microwave oven ?


A short circuit diode will do that or shorted turns in the magnetron high voltage transformer, or the magnetron or a sticky/contaminated door switch.
Hope that helps.

The microwave screen says EE2


The fault code "EE2" on a Sharp commercial microwave oven means that the magnetron 2 circuit has a problem and is pulling too little or too much current.

It may be the magnetron, high voltage transformer, high voltage diode, wiring, etc.

Since you didn't mention your model number I can't say for sure, but magnetron 2 is usually the lower magnetron in a Sharp.

You can order Sharp commercial microwave parts here.

If you need more help, we may have the service manual for you to download free.

But we would need the model number.

Please note that FixYa is not currently notifying us Experts when Clarification Requests are answered.

So to allow us to help you effectively (at no charge), please post a
NEW problem to FixYa, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit and your symptom, "EE2" code.

Sharp over the range microwave, no heat when turned on an a loud humming noise


HI, there are two issues here. the Magnetron tube and the noise filter has failed.

Just to make sure of the Magnetron failure, expose the device and, check the Magnetron temp fuse located near the device. this fuse will show no continuity when tested if faulty. if it testes out ok, replace the magnetron.

3 year old unit, oven works, microwave does not


hi,

You may need a new magnetron, contact sharp or the store you got it from; most microwaves have a 3-5 year warranty on the magnetron. If it's not in warranty, find a good appliance repairman, this is a difficult and dangerous repair job.
