Question about Sharp R-530ES Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Why does the microwave have the turntable keep moving/light stay on/keep vibrating whenever the door is closed?

This microwave was great up until we started having this problem where the turntable kept moving, lights stayed on, and it kept vibrating even after the microwave was done warming something up. Whenever we close the door, regardless of whether we are warming something up or not, the microwave stays on and the turntable keeps moving. This problem has come and gone three times, and we are considering just getting a new one. Does anyone know about this problem, how it can be fixed, or at least why this problem occurred? We have had this microwave for a little more than a year now, and we've gone to get it repaired twice. I would really appreciate the help. Thank you!

    The exact model number is Sharp R-530ES-T. As soon as I close the door the turntable and the light comes on before I even start the heating cycle. The turntable and light stay on after the cycle has ended. The only way to stop the turntable is to keep the door open. A repair technician replaced the power supply thinking that the time-delay relay was bad. It did not fix the problem. What can I do now to fix this issue?

Normally the problem is not the spring, but a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.

If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.

The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.

We have *critical* safety & disassembly info at our site, linked here: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

We also have this full service manual at our site: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/R1480_R1481_R1482_sm.pdf

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

SOURCE: No Heat

This is probably due to a bad door switch, most likely the top one. The microwave got hot because the cooling fan was not running. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your model number here: http://www3.sears.com/

SOURCE: How to install latch and spring in microwave door

You need to know where the 'catches' are inside the choke cover on the door to remove it carefully without breaking anything or marring the cover. You might get inside and find that the post for mounting the return spring has broken and that is part of the outer door panel.

It may be the latch head spring or the door open lever or button.

DOOR SPRING LATCH HEAD HOOK


If you gently push up on the door latch heads (hook-like devices sticking out of the door) there should be spring tension. If they just flop right up, the spring is off inside.

Normally the problem is not the spring, but a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.

If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.

The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.

you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see how it goes together.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.

DOOR OPENING BUTTON LEVER

What usually breaks is the door open lever, but it may also be that the rear side of the door open button has worn down too far to work.

On a counter top model, the outer cover will need to be removed to diagnose and repair this. On an over-the-range model, only the control panel needs to be removed.

Please unplug the oven first.

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) and the door should open.

You can usually find exploded views and part numbers for Sharp models by entering your model number at the Sears parts site.

If not, let me know. We have many Sharp manuals and if we have yours, we can link you to it at no charge.

The best place to order Sharp parts is
Encompass (formerly Tritronics).

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

SOURCE: Door won't stay closed

I just had this issue happen to me last week.. fortunately I was standing in my kitchen when it happened... I heard a snap and then a piece fall down the inside of either the door or the front key panel.. I'm assuming this controlled the door locking/oven turning on safety mechanism. The inside light wont go off and it won't turn on to cook.. I am trying to figure out if it's worth paying to fix or just replace the whole unit!? Anyone know if this is fixable by oneself rather than spend a bunch of money on a service technician??

Samsung microwave turns on when open door


The switch assembly is somehow staying "closed" satisfying the interlock and enabling it to run.
Disassemble the unit, beware specially of the high voltage capacitor, if you aren't comfortable or competent, buy a new microwave. If you are mechanically inclined, disassemble the unit until the switch assembly is accessible; it will have the door latch attached to it.
The switch is either broken or something? exogenous is keeping it closed. It may have come loose due to the door slamming?.
It's a simple fix. I am certainl you will be successful.

The switch for the turntable does not disengage anymore. Could be a relais, could be an electronic switch. When opening the door, a second switch, in series with the other one, connected to the turntable motor disengages, stopping the motor. The light is switched on, because you opened the microwave. Perhaps you never noticed this, but it is the normal way that should work.

I just had the same problem with my microwave. First DISCONNECT THE POWER. Remove the front top grill (screws are on top of microwave). Unscrew the one screw at the top of the control panel and lift it out of the way. You will see three micro switches to the left of the pannel. I bent the metal frame they were mounted to by hand to move them back into place. The microwave oven works great now. If this does not help, then I would consider replacing the top limit switch.
