HI, you will need to replace the heating device. This device is called the Magnetron and, it will cost you about $133.00. This is a repairable issue but, you will need to call for service. I do not recommend installing this device if you are not familiar with handling this type of tech.

I hv a 24ltr Sharp Carasoul Microwave. Few days back, its plate stopped working, but its heating the food fine. Why has the plate stopped rotating? Will the food be evenly heated even though the plate...


> Why has the plate stopped rotating?

The turntable system typically consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

Here is a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

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

> Will the food be evenly heated even though the plate is not rotating?

No.

Unit does not heat food. the light and rotating plate work but food is not heating.


It could be a faulty magnetron, which is responsible to warm up the food. If that is the case, then the cost price of that part is quite expensive and you are better off replacing the whole unit rather than spending money on buying the parts.Hope this helps.

Microwave oven does not warm food up


I have not solved my problem,I have decided to buy a new microwave rather than pay for this amount of money on a telephone advice when you have said on your site that it is free.I will also spend further amount of money, to call an electrician after your advice,so I will be better of buying a new one.

Microwave oven coming on but not heating


I had the same problem with my Sharp OTR microwave/convection oven. I had 2 service reps out to look at it (Sears and Lowes) they both said it was the magnatron and would cost about $500.oo to repair it. I called Waverly's Appliance in Paris, TN and it turned out to be a diode. Total cost of repair was $35.00 including service call.
