Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Locked microwave My cousins came over yesterday and it seem that my microwave has coincidentally decided to become locked. It's a Sharp Carousel R-4A96 microwave oven made in 1994 (yeah, I know it's old, but it works).

    I should have been more specific when I said "locked." I mean whenever I press a button it displays "Lock" on the screen. I don't mean the actual door is locked.

    If it opens and closes OK then it's a sticky censor in switch. Try a tiny squirt of WD40in mechanism.

Built-in Sharp Carousel II Microwave Convection Oven died.


There are a couple of safety thermostats in the oven to shut down power if something overheats. One is on the magnetron tube (the microwave source), the other is on the cooking cavity. These sometimes go bad. There's also a power line fuse that may have failed, or become loose in its mounting clips. These can be tested with an ohmmeter; they should all measure very close to zero ohms if they're good.

Another possibility is that the control circuit board in the oven may have failed. I have worked on several Sharp ovens where the power transformer for the board has gone bad for no good reason. If the board goes bad the oven may appear to be dead as well.

Microwave servicing is best left to professionals. If you're thinking of keeping this one, take it to a service shop (or call for home service) and get an estimate. Then decide whether to repair or replace.

Hope this has helped a little. Thanks for using Fixya!

Sharp microwave stopped working


Is it totally dead? No display? Or just does not cook? If it made an unusual noise before it 'died' something probably shorted out.... You need an ohm meter to troubleshoot. If the fuse is open, switches and HV circuit need to be checked before replacing fuse. Sometimes on the convection Microwaves (not just Sharp) the fuse will 'rust' and open rather than blow. Or the fuse holder can over heat and fail.

Microwave locked


On the R1490-series, you press Custom Help > "1" > Stop/Clear to turn the child lock off.

This may work for you, or press Custom Help and look for a lock option.

If your model does not have a Custom Help button, please reply back with your exact model.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
