Microwave does not turn off

My SHARP microwave model R-1514 turned on by itself and will not turn off even when door is opened.  Only solution is to unplug.

    Also, my SHARP microwave model R-1810A turned on by itself and will not turn
    off even when door is opened. Only solution is to unplug. Just to clarify, its ONLY the humming noise that just keeps running, (the same sound as if the microwave was turned on).

    My SHARP microwave model R-1810A also turned on by itself and will not turn
    off even when door is opened. Only solution is to unplug. Just to clarify, only the humming noise is turned on and cannot be stopped. However, otherwise, the microwave works just fine; if you can bear the constant microwave hummming even after the microwaving has finished.

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Why woll sharp R-530E microwave not turn off when door opens.


It is very dangerous, you're filling the room with radiation, may be best to just dump that one, unless you are a little bit competant with mechanical stuff, in which case it's probably the sensor on the door not registering that it is open,. might be a physical thing, i.e. moved a little. or maybe a electronic thing, requiring a new sensor itself.

GE Profile Spacemaker XL JMV1460 Turns On by Itself


Sounds like there is a stray piece of wire or other metal floating around inside the case. Remove the cover and any breakables in the microwave (the power cord is unplugged for this), turn it upside down over a table and shake it, pound the bottom, and shake it some more--likely the offending piece will drop out onto the table. If so, put it back together and whack it to see if that fixed the problem (cord plugged back in). This process can be repeated.

Our microwave/convecton turns itself off after about a minute


This is a problem in one of the damper-related components, most likely the switch, but it may also be the motor or the damper door.

The damper is a door inside that opens or closes depending on cooking mode. If the controller senses that the door is not in the right position, it will shut down the cook cycle.

Sharp models stop after 59 seconds.

See the attached sample photo for a typical damper assembly.

We have the applicable service manuals for these models and have uploaded it to our site here and here to help you. You will need the free Adobe Reader to view or print it.

If a switch is all you need, we offer a universal type for only $5 postpaid which you can order here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Sharp R 1514 fan button


The only two springs I know of in this model are for the door open button and the door latch.

We have a similar model's service / repair manual and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

It will give you safety info, step by step help in disassembly and troubleshooting tips.

You will need the
free Acrobat Reader to view or print it in case you don't have it already.

If you have a bad fan button, you would need to order a new select button assembly.

The part number is JBTN-B138MRF0 and you can order it here.

If you need other parts for this model, you confirm part numbers and order them from Encompass (formerly Tritronics). Or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

Sharp carousel microwave R-1514 F one touch door release button is stuck


What usually breaks is the door open lever.

On an over-the-range model, only the control panel needs to be removed in most cases.

Please unplug the oven first.

At our site, we now have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

We have 2 service manuals that are very close to this model have uploaded it them our site here to help you. You will need the free Acrobat Reader to view or print them.

http://www.microwavedisplay.com/r1512_sm.pdf

(Note: do not rely on the part numbers shown in the manual. Verify them at the Tritronics site mentioned below)

Once it is apart, you'll be able to see how the door open button would press against the door open lever, which would then lift up against the door latch heads (hook-like projections on the door) to open the door.

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

The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics.

Stops cooking


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

This can be caused by slamming the door or by habitually opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can usually find an exploded view by entering your FULL model number here: http://www3.sears.com (the 3 is correct)
