SOURCE: where is the monitor switch on a sharp r-1471

You can check the protection diode fitted across the highvoltage capacitor near to the Highvoltage transformer. If it is shorted there is a chance to blow off the fuse. There is no chance for the monitor switch. Any way you can check the monitor switch which is located near to the control panel( Near the door switch)

SOURCE: Metal plate on inside of microwave has hole & is arcing.

The Arcing is a real bad sign, and you see the "Brain" has detected a fault condition, most likely the Power Supply and or magnetron, or High Power Diode, has "Faulted" and it shuts down for Safety reasons. Due to the danger existing inside MW, I recommend that you have it serviced by a qualified person. Always get a firm "Quote" before proceeding with any work. Be careful, as often a repair may cost as much as a new one.

If everything works, but the microwave oven does not heat, this is commonly caused by a failed magnetron. The magnetron is essentially, the heart of the oven that produces the RF energy that is used to heat your food. In order to replace a defective magnetron, you will need to consider the following:

1. You will need to uninstall the oven from over the range in order to replace the part (you will need to do this anyway, if you decide to buy a replacement oven).

2. Ensure the oven is UNPLUGGED before servicing anything inside the cabinet and remove the exterior case in order to access the magnetron. There are several websites that you can use that illustrate how the oven is assembled:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com

NOTE: If you've never repaired an appliance on your own before, a microwave oven is usually not a recommended appliance to start with. Some models can be rather involved in taking apart.

3. The magnetron replacement part number for the model you have listed is 505137 and is listed as item 1-12 in the parts index. It costs about $100.
4. This model also has a thermperature fuse, listed as item 1-10 that can also cause the same symptoms if blown. The fuse is essentially a thermostat acts as a fuse if the oven cavity overheats. The part number is 46-1518457-3. You will need to remove the thermostat from the oven and take a resistance check across the component terminals to determine if it is good or not. A low resistance reading indicates a good thermostat. An infinite reading, indicates a blown thermostat and needs to be replaced. The average replacement cost is about $10. I would recommend you check all fuse associated with the oven before assuming the magnetron has failed.

Review the parts illustrations at the recommended websites to see if this is something that you may be able easily take apart and reassemble.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

CAUTION: DO NOT operate a microwave oven with the exterior cover off. The voltage inside the High Voltage network where the magnetron is installed can exceed 3,000 volts!

Hi, W/D here.

Here's an easy way to calculate your cubic feet: measure and multiply (in inches) the width X depth X height, then divide by 1728. This will give you cubic feet.

For example, if a microwave measured 18" wide X 18" deep X 12" high, it would be 3888 cubic inches; divided by 1728 (cubic inches in one cubic foot) = 2.25 cu.ft.

cubic feet is the measure of volume. one cubic foot is 1x1x1 foot. the size of the microwave varies with MAKE and MODEL. but is normally in the range of 1 to 3 cubic feet

Get cubic foot size by multiplying height x width x depth.

Divide that by 1728. If oven is 12 x 12 x 12 then it's exactly 1 cubic ft.

If 6 x 6 x 6 then it's 1/2 cubic ft or. 50 cu ft

Measure the width, depth, and height in inches of the interior cavity.

Multiply the length by the width by the height to get the total in cubic inches.

Divide the cubic inches by 1,728.

The resulting number will be your microwave's capacity in cubic feet.

Multiply the length by the width by the height to get the total in cubic inches.

In GE microwaves, the first 2 digits of the model number are the cubic footage. 1660 is 1.6 cubic foot, 1540 is 1.5 cubic foot. Take care trying to use the existing hardware, the exact placement of hardware and upper installation screws may vary from year to year or model to model..

This should be a 23 cubic foot Frigidair built refrigerator. The actual dimensions usually are 22.4 cu. ft. Sears keeps changing how their model numbers read so I could be wrong. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

If you want to calculate the volume of an object and have the answer in cubic feet.

Volume=Length X Width X Height

With the dimensions you give

Volume=12.5in X 37in X 20in

Volume=9250 cubic inches

To convert 9250 cubic inches into cubic feet you need to understand that there are 1728 cubic inches in 1 cubic foot.

L X W X H = 12"X12"X12"=1728 cu in

You then multiply 9250cu in and (1/1728cu ft) Really you are dividing 9250 by 1728.

your answer is 5.35 cubic feet.

12 inches in 1 foot

144 square inches in 1 square foot

1728 cubic inches in 1 cubic foot

to convert you put the unit you want to keep on top of the dividend.

to conver to to feet ( randomly selecting 100 inches)

Example converting 100 inches to feet

100inches X ____1ft____ = (100/12) = 8.3 feet

12inches

or cubic inches to cubic feet

4000 cubic inches to cubic feet

4000cu in X ____1cu ft____ = ( 2.33 cu ft)

1728 cu in

if you notice that the units on top and bottom of the dividend cancel each other out leaving the numerator (top number) as your unit.

it also works in reverse

2.33 cu ft X ___1728 cu in____ = (4000 cu in)

1cu ft

Volume=Length X Width X Height

With the dimensions you give

Volume=12.5in X 37in X 20in

Volume=9250 cubic inches

To convert 9250 cubic inches into cubic feet you need to understand that there are 1728 cubic inches in 1 cubic foot.

L X W X H = 12"X12"X12"=1728 cu in

You then multiply 9250cu in and (1/1728cu ft) Really you are dividing 9250 by 1728.

your answer is 5.35 cubic feet.

12 inches in 1 foot
