Where is the monitor switch located on a sharp carousel R-4X06 microwave?


Hi, if this unit is over the stove it has to come down. Table top, case has to come off. The monitor switch is a microswitch that is part of the door switches. PLEASE UNPLUG YOUR UNIT BEFORE WORKING ON IT. When you get it opened up, there's probably a diagram that will let you know which switch it is. Lookd it up and does list a monitor switch with fuse, but would not give me a part number. Hope this helps

Microwave will not work


Even though you don't mention the model number, you posted under Sharp model R-1491, so I'll assume that's it.

You say when trying to work the actual microwave, you get nothing?

We could use a little clarification, but FixYa only gives you one shot at posting a help request.

When you enter the cooking time and press "Start", if the timer counts down and the oven lamp comes on, but the the turntable, cooling fan, and microwave section do not run, then you have a bad secondary interlock (bottom door switch) or its mount is bad.

We have the applicable service manuals for these models and have uploaded it to our site here and here to help you.

Also look at this info on door switch diagnosis and replacement.

Hope this helps.

The door to my Microwave (Sharp R-1491) will not close. The inside latches are not working. Is there a way to fix this? Or is there a microwave that you would recommend (as inexpensive as possible) that...


If you gently push up on the door latch heads (hook-like devices sticking out of the door) there should be spring tension. If they just flop right up, the spring is off inside.

Normally the problem is not the spring, but a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.

If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.

The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.


Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.

You can usually find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number at the Sears parts site.

But the best place to order Sharp parts is
Encompass or you can call them at

If you need to remove it form the wall, here are two sets of installation instructions that may be close enough. here and here

If the unit needs to be replaced, you can ask Sharp if they have a "drop in" replacement. You can contact Sharp at 1-800-BE-SHARP (1-800-237-4277) or visit them online.

Our r-1491 microwave fan won't shut off, even when


its just the door switches playing up on you,,but is it worth getting it fixed? after all a new microwave onle costs from £50 up today,,
