Question about Sharp R-1405 / R-140 Microwave Oven
I have a Sharp Over the stove microwave Model R-1480 manufactured July 2001. This microwave is in my motorhome & I hooked up my motorhome by mistake to 220 volt and now I have a T.V. & microwave that does not work and there is power to the receptacles?? After taking this "attack of dumb" I reset breakers and GFI receptacles and everything else started working but these two items. I am hoping there are fuses in both of these however I don't know where they are located and if indeed they even have fuses??
Thanks so much in advance for your input, it is appreciated.

Yes, both of them should have a fuse or two in the internal power adapter. If you open them up, you should be able to find it fairly easy (start tracing from where the AC power line comes in on the board). Make sure you unplug them and leave them unplugged for a good time
Once you find the fuses, you can take them to a local electronic parts outlet for identification, testing, and replacement. Most electronics places will have a meter on hand and be happy to do this for you for free.
Since you didn't give a city location for yourself, I'm afraid I can't offer a local store recommendation.
As always, when working on a TV, be VERY careful to make sure that the capacitors are discharged. See this faq:
