If it shuts off in one second, then you probably have a bad magnetron, control board, or (if equipped) inverter.

If you could give us your model number, we may be able to give you more specific help.

We're always happy to help.

New microwave stopped working after 15 seconds

Possibly the fuse / breaker is tripped, usually all outlets in one room share same breaker. Check breakers (or fuses) or try outlet in differnt room. If the outlet has power, (plugin a lamp to check) and the microwave still does not work, take it back to store for replacement or refund.

Microwave shuts off after a few seconds. message says to check the manual. What's wrong?

The problem is the magnetron, or the inverter board, "if 7 years old or less" and possibily the keypad control board.

Instruction Manual for Sharp Microwave Oven

I can explain that. You enter the power level you want from 0 to high(10) the number corresponds to a percentage of time the cook cycle is ON. 5 being 50%, for each minute of cook time programmed the magnatron will be on 30 seconds and off 30 seconds. You can program anything from 10% to 90% in place of the high or "always on" setting. Eric

The microwave starts, then stops 2 seconds later

I tried a solution posted on another posting by placing the conductive plastic behind the control panel and it worked.

My microwave runs for 30 seconds and stops

It could be shutting off because of the heat sensor on the magnatron is over heating because of a bad capacitor or diode or the power transformer its self. This is a call for the service man BUT you know these days a microwave like this cost a couple of hundred bucks maybe a little more too. But it will possibly cost 150 or so if not more to fix the average microwave. If you really like it, then see if you can have it estimated BUT its not for the handy man to try to trouble shoot as theres extremly high voltage in these puppys even when they are not plugged in!! Good luck
