This will happen if the cut-off fuse is blown or, the Magnetron is damaged. you can check the fuse by removing the outside protective cover. After the removal of the cover, you will need to located the noise filter. there is a fuse on this board. check it for continuity with a ohm meter. if the fuse is ok, replace the Magnetron.

There is also a diode in the same area. you can test this component as well. If the fuse and diode are faulty or damaged, replace them.

My sharp carousel II microwave no longer heats food. Do I need to buy a new one?


The problem maybe the magnetron, or the inverter board if 7 years old or less, and possibly the keypad control board, by the time you add parts and labour cheaper to replace the microwave oven in the long run.

Sharp R-340H Microwave has power but does not heat food. Carousel working.


The magnetron is the likely problem, "heats food" the other two items to check is the high voltage capacitor and diode. It usually is cheaper to replace.

Can i still use microwave if carousel does not turn but still heats food


You can but you may have uneven or hot and cold spots present in whatever you are heating. Sounds like the carousel motor has failed, those are replaceable. Good luck !

Won't heat food, carousel will not turn, BUT, the control panel seems to work, the clock is still on, and the cooling fan makes noise


Not sure on the particular model but sometimes there is a fuse under the metal cover that can go out. Just be extremely careful and whatever you do don't have it plugged into wall socket.

It's not getting heat and LCD looks like there's water inside.


On most Sharp Carousel Microwaves, the display stops working after time. As for the not getting any heat, the magnetron or the high voltage transformer may not be working.

Sharp Carousel Microwave Model R520-LK timer will run but carousel doesn't turn and food doesn't heat.


I also have the Sharp Carosoul oven, symptoms - fan runs, controls are fine but the turntable stopped turning and it did not heat. It was not the switches, fuse, but in fact a sagging door that misaligned with the door switches. The true cause was a warn top hinge. As a temporary fix, I adjusted the bottom hinge (3 screws underneath), straightened the door, and now it works again.
