Question about Sharp R-1480 Microwave Oven
It is indeed made by Sharp.
If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.
If it went dead several seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.
Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:
OR, we have the service / repair manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.
The parts list is here.
You can order Dacor parts here.
If you prefer to order the original Sharp parts (which are usually considerably less) look for the part number on a tag on the transformer or capacitor (whichever is bad).
The part number for the capacitor will be similar to RC-QZBOl8MREO and the transformer number will be similar to RTRN-BO59MREO. Again, these numbers are examples to show Sharp's number format.
