Question about Sharp Microwave Ovens
Clock/display works, interior light comes on when you open door, etc. but after you program and hit START it just counts down (like it is on but it is not!!) I have tried pulling up/slamming on the door, etc but dont think it is door switch as it does look like it is on (counting down with timer) but does nothing - no turning of carousel, no sound, nada. It is less than 2 years old.

One of your door interlock switches is defective . I would suggest having it repaired by a qualified repair tech in your area.

Good for you for doing the cold reset. Good job!
Hopefully it was not stored in a damp or unheated area, since that can case damage that will complicate the diagnosis.
But generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:
- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose conneciton on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

SOURCE: i have a sharp carousel
The easiest way I can remember is to turn off the power, then back on... this will make the display flash, then press stop/clear.
Then press clock, enter the time eg: for 9 am or pm enter 9.00 and press clock again.
Hope this helps.

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch mount.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.
Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.
