Question about Sharp R-930AK Convection/Microwave Oven
I have a Sharp R-930AK microwave oven. All of the buttons and electronics seem to work. However, the turnstyle is not turning, and the food does not heat - either in microwave or convection mode. I am wondering if anyone knows of a part I can purchase or has some ideas on how to repair this. The cost of getting a technician to look at it, and then reparining it will appraoch the $350 it'll cost to buy a new one...
That would be a problem with the secondary interlock (lower door switch) or its mount.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.
Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.
There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.
The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.
Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.
If the switch mount is broken, it's usually more economical and safer to add a dab or two of hot glue to the mount to secure the switch. Let it cool for about 30 minutes before using.
