Quite often this is due to a bad door switch. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure.

 

If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

 

We also have the complete service manual for this model at our site.

Microwave light on, but not cooking


You need to give a brand name and model number so we have a better I idea what to tell you. And I work on appliances. But there is a point when it just doesn't pay to try and fix it. Evidently it has lived a long life, and now its just giving up.

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.

The heat is inop - everything else works on my R-1754 Sharp. Any common problems?


If the fan and turntable are not working when you try to cook, it's likely a bad bottom door switch or mount. See this file.

If the fan and turntable ARE working when you try to cook, the problem is the primary interlock switch, the inverter, the magnetron, or a connection between one or more of them.

We have a sound clip of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are working.

We have the service manual at our site and have uploaded it here to help you.

Built-in Sharp Carousel II Microwave Convection Oven died.


There are a couple of safety thermostats in the oven to shut down power if something overheats. One is on the magnetron tube (the microwave source), the other is on the cooking cavity. These sometimes go bad. There's also a power line fuse that may have failed, or become loose in its mounting clips. These can be tested with an ohmmeter; they should all measure very close to zero ohms if they're good.

Another possibility is that the control circuit board in the oven may have failed. I have worked on several Sharp ovens where the power transformer for the board has gone bad for no good reason. If the board goes bad the oven may appear to be dead as well.

Microwave servicing is best left to professionals. If you're thinking of keeping this one, take it to a service shop (or call for home service) and get an estimate. Then decide whether to repair or replace.

Hope this has helped a little. Thanks for using Fixya!

Cooking doesnt start


Microwave?

Generic advice follows.

Do you open the door while the machine is cooking? Do it a lot? For a long time (months)? Check your door safety interlock switches. The microswitches can not stand that type of abuse. I have personal knowledge on this. I try not to open the door until it stops, but it is hard usually to do that!!!

If you need more help, let me know.
