Ancient is the key here, do you want to keep it sentimentally or build a new relationship with a new , young better model? The seal is essential to keep users safe from not use if seal is damaged. Microwave is a klystron type transmitter used in radar. Have repaired and ck for escaping rf energy.if you go that route.I'd go new.

Microwave heats fine, finishes timed amount, press end, open door and microwave keeps going like door is closed. Is this a malfunction that requires a recall? Sharp Carosel

Hi - I'm not sure about a recall but certainly not safe to use as you have exposed yourself to radiation if the oven runs with the door open.

Common sense must prevail here - there is a high possibility the door switch(s) is faulty - have it checked thoroughly by a serviceman and check with the company if there were known problems with the particular model in question.

I find it extremely rare for something like you have experienced to occur - have never come across this problem ever - the microwave circuits are meticulously designed to have three door switches to eliminate the very problem described by you.

A but concerned...

Microwave screen says lock and I cannot get it to unlock

It depends on the oven but try cleaning around the seal for the door a lot of times just a little build up there will cause malfuntions with the key board .Make sure you look and clean under the seal you don't need to remove it . Just clean it real good and it will likely fix this problem

Carousel won't turn

The carousel won't turn Although the carousel is usually driven by a small motor that 'sits directly below the turntable and it has a small drive coupling attached to it .You will have to open the outside case by removingall of the screws along the back edge and the sides and the bottom then lift or slide the case towardds the back of the microwave and then lift off Now Inspect the plastic drive coupling that the tray sits on, as well as the ring-and-roller assembly, to make sure that they're working properly. and if this still looks good then replace the motor it is attached to here is a couple of picts for you fa1496e.jpg

Sharp MW won't shut off

Sounds like it needs a new electronic board or PCB. Although I would consider a new microwave as your microwave is getting on in age and can be a danger to health or dangerous if something blows up.
