Question about Sharp R-9H66 Microwave Oven

Sharp carousel under counter microwave start doesn't always work

Sometimes when I push 'start' it doesn't turn the microwave on.  I go thru this little ritual to get it to start - I open the door, close it and listen for this little, very faint click.  If I hear this, I'm pretty sure that when I push 'start' it will turn on.  I open-close,open-close the door until the start button works.  I always eventually get it to turn on, but the obsessive compulsive behavior is starting to stick!  Can you clue me into what this problem is and how I might fix it?  Thanks.

Re: Sharp carousel under counter microwave start doesn't...

Sounds like an intermittent door switch or a loose door switch mount. Very common.

At our site, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information.

Sharp Carousel Model R-209KK-W is flashing all 8's and keypad not working

The first thing to try is to do a hard reset.

Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

If it still doesn't work, it may need repair, which can be done for $39.95 in most cases.

My door latch pushes in but does not open the door.

But does not what? If the door doesn't open, chances are the seal has gotten sticky so try to apply a little outward pull... If it is sticky and opens, wipe down with moist cloth both the seal and the mating surface.
