Question about Sharp R-1500 Microwave Oven
Hi! I read your post and saw some advice that seem related but wanted to verify with you before I do anything. I did not hear a pop but that doesn't mean it didn't happen. Our family usually never leave the kitchen when anything is being cooked unless someone is there for safety reasons. The night before the microwave worked fine. The next day I tried to heat a cup of water and nothing was heated. Fan, control unit, interior & exterior light, keypad all worked. So I suspect the magnetron isn't working. However could it be just a component on a board that may have gone out instead of the magnetron? I know my way around electronics and upgraded the keypad and display when that went out a few years ago. I'm not sure what electronics are involved when replacing the magnetron but when a board level component goes out is this something that can be troubleshoot and repaired or do you just replace at board level and not deal with components?
Check highvoltage section and diodes and finally replace magnetron...
