Need replacement for Sharp model R-1461A carousel microwave

Had marble counters installed a few years back and now need to replace my over range microwave. Unfortunately the marble range back splash continues up the wall to the bottom of the microwave limiting the height of the unit I am looking for to just 14 3/4" at the wall.

A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

It may be the fuse, which is usually located on the floor of the oven behind the control panel or between the door switches.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO) / thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the magnetron thermostat to open.

Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

When checking thermostats, if it has a hood fan thermostat, that should read open, as opposed to the others, which should read closed.

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.

If it goes dead or blows the breaker (or GFI) when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

If it's intermittent or random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or a loose fuse holder, or even an intermittent fuse.

You should do a continuity test on the fuse while it's in the holder (with the microwave unplugged, of course) then turn the fuse by hand or take it out and put it back in, then test it again.

If you remove the fuse, then press the meter leads against the ends, it can allow internal contact to be made and make a bad fuse appear to be good.

We have critical safety & disassembly info (including a how-to video) at our site, linked here.

You can probably find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number here at the Sears parts site.

The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics.

You can call Sharp and ask them what current models if any will be drop-in replacements,either using the same mounting hardware or at least the same space.

You can contact Sharp at 1-800-BE-SHARP (1-800-237-4277) or visit them online.

SOURCE: Need replacement part for a BLCK Sharp Carousel Microwave R-1480

The part you need is PDIFB026/KIT. Sears parts has it listed for $45.49 plus shipping, taxes, etc. (I get a lot of repair parts through them. They are very reasonable. It's also a good place to start when looking for a part. They have exploded views and parts listings for a lot of appliances. Then you can shop around once you have the part number you need.)

For your oven, here's the page:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=R-1480&productCategoryId=0123370&brandId=0958&modelName=MICROWAVE-OVEN&diagramPageId=00001&componentDescription=OVEN%20AND%20CABINET&documentId=P0101304&backToLink=Return%20to%20Sub%20Components%20list

You're looking for item 2-2 on the drawing.

SOURCE: R1381 Sharp Carousel over the range microwave

I know this is late, but I have instructions for this unit. Remove the grease filters on the bottom. Inside the exposed hole there should be two gold colored bars. These are attached to plates at the top of the until which hook onto the mounting plate. Undo the screws at the bottoms of the bars and pull them down. This will unhook the unit from the top of the wall plate. Roll the unit forward and unhook from wall plate.

Turntable won't turn will it hurt the microwave how do I fix it can you help me


If the oven is still heating, but the carousel isn't turning, this problem is commonly attributed to a turntable motor that has worn out and may need to be replaced. The motor is attached to the center plastic piece (called a turntable shaft, turntable ring or coupler) under the middle of the glass tray. The following link explains how to access and replace the motor:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3555716-replacing_a_turntable_motor_on_a_microwa

This is a very simple repair, that usually is not expensive. The price range will be determined by the model and manufacturer. This repair can also be performed on an over the range model microwave oven WITHOUT uninstalling it.

You can refer to any of the following websites for comparison:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The first three sites listed have helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you with locating and properly identifying the part(s) you may need.

The average price for a motor is about $35 to $45. The coupler is less than $10. If you have any questions, please post back with your complete MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: Even though the carousel may not be turning, you can still use the microwave while awaiting parts. You will need to physically rotate whatever you are heating about midway through the cook time to ensure even heating. Early model microwave ovens were not equipped with a rotating carousel and this was the common routine.

Blown Microwave


Most likely a shorted capacitor and a blown fuse. Very common problem on that model.

Sharp Carousel Convection Oven. Model R-9H54.touch pad


It depends on what you mean by "a problem with the touch pad assembly".

If some or all keys do not respond, you would probably need a new keypad, but the key units for all Sharp R-9H-series models have been unavailable for a few years now.

These units did indeed last a long time.

Sorry I can't bring better news.
