SOURCE: Clock will run down to 1 second of the minute and microwave will stop

The surge probably didn't cause this. This common error indicates a problem in the convection damper circuit. It may be a defective damper switch, damper motor, or a jammed damper door. I have attached a drawing of a typical damper system. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can order parts for Sharp models from Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com.

SOURCE: Microwave cuts out after 23 secs

In most cases, this is a problem with the inverter or a bad magnetron.

Due to the lethal voltages used and produced, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.

I would recommend that you contact your nearest Panasonic-authorized servicer. You can find one here:

SOURCE: Sharp model R-1871 shuts off every 59 seconds

This is a problem in one of the damper-related components, either the switch or motor or the damper door may be binding.

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 drawing 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.

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

Microwave stops after 59 seconds


Check that a "favourite" setting has not been selected. The unit may think that is the time that you want to cook. Im not sure about your model but see if there is any clear or cancel buttons to clear any pre programmed selections. If not, unplug the machine for 15 minutes to reset the controller and try it again.

AFTER SETTING TIME COOK TO 1 MIN 60 SEC AND PUSHING START BUTTON 4O SECS MORE IS ADDED, I.E. TOTAL 2 MINS SHOW ON DISPLAY. CAN I RESET THE THE COMPUTER.


There are sixty seconds in a minute, so 1 min 60 sec is the same as 2 min. If you want 40 seconds less than 2 minutes then set it for 1 min 20 sec or for 80 sec.

Hi when i set the microwave at 100 watts for 1 min it starts and stops working by itself when timer reaches 38 sec and it also dosent make the beeping sound in the end.please help


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes and try again.

Change the damper motor and switch. Cost for both approx. $30.00. Must remove cover to gain access to motor & switch.

59 SEC NEED TO GET FRONT OFF MICRO


If your unit runs for 59 seconds then stops, the problem is the convection damper motor. (Sharp part # RMOTDA222WREZ).
Unfortunately, you cannot access this from the front - the whole unit has to come down as the entire outside cover has to be removed.
This is a pretty major job and the motor (located below and behind the magnetron tube) is rather hard to remove and get back into place. This is probably better left to an experienced technician. You can call Sharp 1-800-BE SHARP for a referral to an authorized servicer.
