Question about Sharp R-1460 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Sharp Carousel Microwave R-1460A no power, door switch went first

Sharp Carousel Microwave R-1460A was having problems when shut, it would seem to "run" (no turn table movement) until you wiggled the door it would stop, as if it was not aligning correctly. After a few weeks of that,I was heating coffee and heard a pop like a fuse. Now there is now power to the unit, no lights, nothing. The outlet works fine with other appliances. Can I somehow just replace an inexpensive fuse and/or door switch, or do I need a new oven? Is this safe to run with the switch like this or is it leaking radiation? Thanks.

    I have the same problem with my Sharp  R-1460 microwave. I am pretty sure it is the door switch because when I push on the door, I cane get the unit to work. I now need to decide if is worth replacing the door switch of just getting a new (and better) oven. BGS

    Where is the fuse located on this unit as mine has stopped working all together even though the outlet is good.

You will want to replace the fuse and door switches. You will not be able to run it without replacing door switches. You do not need a new microwave. Door switches go bad, it has nothing to do with radiation.

I've had a similar problem with a 1983 Sharp Carousel microwave. It turned out to be a faulty door micro switch, the contact didn't stay closed inside it for very long.

Sharp Carousel R530BK microwave won't cook unless light pressure is kept on the door button.


There are door switches and one of them is evidently out of adjustment or the little actuator arm on it is.

Sharp carousel microwave convection oven keeps blowing fuse


The service manual is here:
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/r820bc_bk_bw_sm.pdf

You can get Sharp parts from Encompass here.

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.
See http://www.microtechfactoryservice.com/cap_test.html

If it went dead several seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.
See: http://www.microtechfactoryservice.com/xformer.html

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.

I have a Haier microwave and tonight after heating some food, I went to close the door and upon closing it, the carousel started turning and it won't shut off.


It sounds like one of the door switches has become defective, each must be disconnected on the one side and tested with a digital meter using the ohms scale.

It's probably a bad door switch or door switch mount, probably the top one, which is the door sensing switch.

Sharp Carousel Microwave has no power


I too believe that a "protection fuse" was possibly blown. It would need to be found and get replaced. Hopefully it is just a fuse and nothing else because the way it sounds to me, the microwave may be damaged.

Good Luck!

My Sharp over the range microwave oven model R-1460A shut off. Cannot power it on. Checked outlet, works fine.


Itmay be the fuse, which is usually located behind the grille or on thefloor of the oven behind the control panel or between the door switches.

Ifthe 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 / bodyof the oven.

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

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

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.

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

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

While we don't have that exact manual, we do have a similar service manual here which should be close enough to help you or someone you know troubleshoot these basics.

Once you know what's wrong, the best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics.
