Question about Sharp R-1610 Microwave Oven
There is power to the two light sockets but after I install the new bulbs they won't come on and there is not power to the sockets until I take the bulbs out. What is wrong?
Sorry I missed this one before, but if you (or anyone) has this trouble, the problem is no the control panel.
We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.
This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.
This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

First check if light bulbs is ok these bulb are connected in series if one is fused both wont work 'first if u look at the two fiitings you would find a common wire disconnect from both .now you are left with two wires one connected to each fitting .disconnect from one fiting and conect to the other .now u will have one fitting connected and one totally disconnected .try bulb ifit works disconnect that fitting and try the other one .by elumination you will find out if the fitting is faulty
