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.

If the inside light, turntable and internal cooling fan all come on when you try to cook, but it's not heating, then check the bottom door switch and its mount.

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.

You can order Sharp parts from Encompass here or call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

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!

Over the range Microwave trouble


It is a door switch problem of some sort.  I have two Sharp R-1611 units that do the same thing.  The light and fan come on, but not the heat, thank goodness.

I am going to replace it since the plastic for the case and door is cracked in numerous places.  I have spent several hours researching microwaves online have not a single clue what to replace the Sharp with.  Seems like every vendor has very good units and very bad units.  I guess you just pay your money and take your chances.

Hood light will not turn off


The problem is damage to the control circuit board. This damage happens usually when the lamps are removed or installed without disconnecting the oven from the power line first. We regularly repair these boards for this very problem for customers from across the country for $32.50. We have an important file called "safety.txt" which you can find by a search on Yahoo.com. It's important information to consider before proceeding.
