Question about Sharp R-220BW Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Can't figure out how to defrost something.

I want to defrost a Jimmy Dean Sausage, Egg and Cheese croissant, but try as I may I can't figure out how to do it. I've tried these steps: 1) Hit the "Defrost" button 2) Enter the number 1 3) The screen displays the number 1. Directly below the number, the abbreviation "lbs" is flashing. 4) I enter the number 2. 5) The screen now displays 0.2 (which I assume means that the microwave thinks that my item is 0.2 pounds, which seems about right for my croissant) , and the "lbs" is no longer flashing. 6) When I hit Start, nothing happens and the display changes to "EE" This was my best shot and ended in a dead end. So what are the eaxact steps in order to defrost this thing that probably weifhs abou 2 or 3 ounces? Thanks, John Carney hohnmcarney@earthlink.net

> If for some reason you don't still have your manual, here are ways to get one:

Look at the model number tag and find the FCC ID number.

Enter the number (in two parts) as shown on the FCC ID page here:
https://www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid

In the list of exhibits, look for the owner's manual. You can download it free.

SOURCE: I think our Sharp microwave

The main fuse in the microwave oven has blown, the cause is probably a defective door switch.

SOURCE: I Have a sharp microwave

That would be a problem in the damper assembly, either a bad switch or motor, or the damper door is jammed or blocked. Consult the attached diagram for general reference. The damper switch is the same as the primary interlock (door) switch.

Its location varies by model, but you'll have to take the outer cover off to find it.

The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type HERE

Also, I quote other similar solution...
I had the same problem. Turned out to be the micro switch and damper motor. I replaced both myself and fixed the problem for less than $40.00. The best advice I got was replace the switch, reconnect the motor and make sure the motor runs through a damper door cycle. It didn't run, even though it showed continuity and had power, so I replaced the motor which solved the problem. The micro switch which is activated by the cam on the damper motor has to be cycled within one minute, or the unit shuts itself off. The damper motor on my model R-1870 is found in the right rear section of the assembly when facing it. You have to remove the unit, and remove the outer casing to get to it. The damper is a simple sheet metal door, activated by the motor, and the switch mounts at the top of the motor and is activated by the same cam that activates the door.


Good luck.

I have also a Orbit opm700 and have been trying to locate smaller tubes without success. Like you, I have e mailed Orbit twice without any response - so much for after sales service. I think the only alternative is to source a separate sausage stuffer - unless anyone knows different!

How do you use defrost?


It would be much easier for me to direct you to where you can find a manual rather than trying to explain all the defrost features your microwave has. If your model number is correct, go to managemylife.com and type the model number under the "Manuals" link. Your owner/operator's manual is available in .pdf (Adobe) format that you can download or print for FREE. The defrost features begin on page 21 of the manual. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

I selected defrost mode to defrost my cheese in my panasonic microwave and after that I do not know how to go back to normal mode.


No model # to reference. Find the CLEAR, CANEL or RESET button /key pad and press once or twice. If this does not correct...unplug for 5 mins, plug back in and reset clock. This should fix it.

Egg cookers


I found the instructions
Sprinkle a few grains of salt on bottom of egg cooker. (Salt attracts microwaves and is necessary to help cook bottom of egg)

Break egg into egg cooker.
One egg in micro at a time.

Will fork piece yolk and white to bottom of cooker, three times. _ This is very important.

Line up notches on egg cooker lid and cup then twist until locked

Micro on High for 30 seconds

Let stand 10 seconds
If bottom of egg is not cooked turn egg over with a spoon and microwave on high for another 10 to 20 second or until cooked.

Micro oven-Not working


Hello Kavithaanto,
If I understand your problem correctly, it sounds as if your microwave was operating and the egg exploded after 5 minutes ( which caused the door to open), after cleaning up the mess, you tried it again and it does not work. If that is true, then there is a high probability that your microwave has a damaged Magnetron Tube, Filament Transformer or High Voltage Capacitor.. none of which are something the untrained person should attempt to repair. Since your microwave is a table top model, I recommend that you consider purchasing a new one. The cost to repair would exceed the cost to replace so it is not worth it. I am sorry that I couldn't provide a more encouraging solution.
Best Regards,
Rick
