Powers off immediately after starting


My immediate reaction would be to cut your losses and buy a new unit as sooner or later you will run into a part that is no longer available.

Microwave shuts off as soon as start button is pressed and screen displays a request to set time of day. Have gone through this cycle, including unplugging the microwave, several times with same result. ...


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. This most commonly is a bad door switch, other possible problems are a faulty relay or solder joint on the power module, but a bad door switch is most common. Also make sure you hear the fan is still operating in your microwave. Next is to make sure the air intake grill on your microwave is not plugged up with air borne dust and dirt.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Our Sharp Microwave Model R-508FS has just recently started doing some odd things. If you key in a time and press start, it may continue to microwave but the timer will not count down. Or, if you...


I believe I've solved the problem. I had tried the hard reset but then last night I thought about it and decided that since this house was built 22 years ago, I wondered if the electrician had used the short cut method on installing the sockets for electrical power. So, I measured the voltage at the adjoining socket while heating water. The voltage before turning on the microwave was 122.7 volts. After the microwave was turned on, it dropped down to 107.6 volts. I located the circuit breaker and shut it off and then pulled out the dual socket. Sure enough, they had used the time saving technique of stripping the wire back about 5/8 inch and then pressed it into the back of the socket. I figured it would be better with the microwave pulling 12 amps to just take the wire and wrap it around the screws on the side of the plug, tighten them down and then put it back in the box. Turned the circuit breaker back on and reset the clock on the microwave and did some more tests. No problems so far and when I measured the voltage drop, it went from 122.7 down to 119.7 running at full power. Don't remember the wire size but it was adequate. The only other thing I may try to eliminate any voltage drop would be to go to the master breaker box and tighten down the screw on the breaker going to that microwave outlet. I had tightened them all down in the whole 200 amp box a long time ago, but it probably wouldn't hurt to go thru the whole box again.

Microwave fuse mystery


AHD_NZ

If it goes dead or blows the breaker 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 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.

Complete Shut-Down


I woulds first suspect a blown internal fuse or a thermal cutout on the magnetron in your case, but a microwave can be dead for many reasons.

If it goes dead for just a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the thermostat to open. When it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power on again.

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

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

This code means you have a bad temperature sensor or thermal fuse, or a fault in the wiring harness to or from one of them.
