Sharp r96st stops at 1 sec and halts whilst preheating oven

Microwave is heating but stops at 1 sec and in preheat mode it stops part way and needs "start" to be pressed consistently.
the fan has started to make a noise when you open the door just to use the micro without convection

    yes it runs for 59 secs then stops so if you need it for minutes you have to sand there and keep presing start every 59 secs of the cont down.

    Are you saying that it runs 59 seconds and stops?

    If you're not sure, please retest it.

This 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 photo for a typical damper assembly.

I need instructions for 10in. microwave browner

Only place I've found is here: CorningWare Browner Instructions

As these dishes were designed by Corning for a 650 watt over, you can recalculate preheat and cooking times for your oven with the following formula:

650/(your oven's wattage) x (listed preheat time or cook time)

For example, for a Corning MW-9 dish, they list 4 minutes maximum preheat time. I have a 1,580 watt oven. So 650/1580 = .41 x 4 minutes = 1.64 minutes and about a minute and a half preheat. (MAX).

Convection oven shuts off after a minute when trying to bake. Does this during Compubake also.. Does not preheat

Possibly a bad oven temp sensor. If the uinit doesnt read a temperature it will shut down to prevent a fire or over heating. The temp sensor is a thermister A temperature variable resistor that changes value as the temp changes. so If the main board doesnt get a response within a vertain resistance range it shuts things down. Sometimes since those parts are in the actual cooking area and subject to the heat and steam from cooking they can rust and break, or just get old and break. Or slam the door and break, you get the idea!!

My Dimension4's convection oven often starts to make grinding noises when it preheats.

From the description it is the turnable motor, eventually it will need to be replaced down the road.

My recently purchased Rival RGST902 microwave stopped heating. Everything else works, it just will not heat.


The first wayout is to consider WARRANTY.If the microwave is under warranty return it to the point of purchase to enjoy warranty right.But if the microwave is not under warranty another wayout is needed.

Below is the solution on how to make our microwave heat food.

1 Remove oven racks and place them in soapy water to soak.

2 Preheat oven to 200 degrees.

  • 3 Turn the oven off and spray the inside with oven cleaner.

  • 4 Allow to sit for 10 minutes.

  • 5 Wipe the cleaner and dirt away with a damp sponge, rinsing frequently.

  • 6 Dry with a soft cloth.

  • Thanks.

    My oven was bought one & a half yrs ago. Just now i on the oven to preheat & there is no temperature. Just wonder my oven is spoilt? Thanks

    Did you mention if this is a microwave or a gas or electric oven.
    If microwave there is no preheat unless with the food or using the heater, if so the heating element can be faulty. You will need to check this out and then check with the heating coils to confirm.
    Someimes it can be only a fault on the contacts, relay or the connections to the heater.

    15 yr-old GE electric oven takes over an hour to preheat to 450

    After jiggling the lower burn element the oven heated up in the normal time. Perhaps a connection had come loose.

    Convection Preheat doesn't reach the Chosen Oven Temperature

    I would first suspect the thermister (thermistor) or a low line voltage, weak control board relay etc.

    But the service manuals will show you how to safely disassemble, test and repair the unit.

    We have the service manuals for this model and have uploaded them to our site here and here to help you.

    You will need the
    free Acrobat Reader to view or print them in case you don't have it.

    The best place to order parts for this brand is Encompass (formerly Tritronics). Or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

    Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.
