You replaced the control board?

Assuming the fuse & holder are good, then check the cavity thermal cutout and magnetron's temperature fuse.

If those and wiring are okay, the board's low voltage transformer should be getting power.

WHERE IS THE FUSE ONA SHARP R140A MICROWAVE


Marty,

Unplug your microwave and turn it around and remove the screws holding cover on and then remove the cover. Look for where the power cord goes into the back of the unit and follow the black wire from the cord to where it ends. It should stop an either a circuit board or a fuse holder. Make sure that you replace the fuse with the same amperage fuse as what you take out. You will find the amp rating stamped on one of the silver collars on each end of the fuse. Good luck!

I have a 1995 Sharp Carousel R-1440. Our power went out then when it came on our microwave it no longer working properly. the clock works but when the door is closed the cooling fan starts running- it...


Yes your oven's controller is probably malfunctioning you need to replace the SYSTEM BOARD but I personally suggest to buy an other oven.... the system board will be hard to find and expensive...

See if other electronics is acting funny since the power loss... you could CLAIM the damage from the insurance company

Good luck!!

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!

Remove cover. Check that the fuse is good, if it is good, check power from power supply to main board.

You have to replace the control board. Sharp has had problems with the display boards for awhile. There is no bulb or fuse you can change.

It's called a vent louver. You'll need the exact model # from inside the microwave when inquiring to get the correct color.

Check with www.microwaveglasstrays.com or call them toll free @ 1-877-894-0035 to order. (I think they're somewhere in the $35 range.

1990 Sharp Carousel II over microwave / vent hood


Sharp calls that the turntable coupler when it's a separate part.

If it's part of the the part with three legs, that is called the turntable support.

You can order Sharp parts from Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com

If yours is model R1610, we actually have that full service manual on our site at http://www.microwavedisplay.com/r1610_sm.pdf

It could be the turntable motor, the turntable support (with built-in coupler) or a problem on the control board. I would first look at the 3-legged turntable support with built-in coupler to see if it got hot and warped. It should be flat across the top from the center to the end of the legs. If the support's legs are pointing a bit downward, it will prevent the coupler from making contact with the motor shaft. I've held bent ones a few inches over a gas burner to heat them up where the legs meet the center hub, then set something a bit heavy on it to hold it in place while it cools. If it needs a new one, it is part # FROLPB025MRK0 and it runs $19.50 retail at Tritronics. A quick (but not necessarily definitive) test of the motor is to grab the shaft gently with pliers and gently try to turn it. If it moves slowly and makes a high-pitched whining noise, it's likely okay. If it won't turn or grinds, it is bad. The number for the new turntable motor is RMOTDA264WRZZ and it retails for $8.87. Please note that you may need to look under model R1600, R1600, R1601, R1601, R1610, or R1612. They are all mostly the same. Tritronics is at http://www.wehaveparts.com The service manual for the R1610, R1611, R1612 can be downloaded at: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/R1610.pdf There may be a grommet bewteen the mtoro and turntable support. Don't lose that! Be safe!

This is a problem with the control board, which we commonly repair for $32.50. This is caused by not disconnecting the microwave from the power line when removing or installing a bulb.
