Re: wont heat items in the micro or convection


Apparently this is not actually an R-510HK since that model does not have convection mode. Can you reply back with the correct model number? We may have the service manual for you.


It sounds like you have loose door switch mounts or possibly loose door hinges.

If the door won't open via the door open button, then the outer cover will have to be removed.


This is a preliminary post, asking for further information (model). Please withhold your rating until we actually offer the solution.

When we start it does not heat up the food.

If it doesn't make any loud noise when it turns on check the micro switchs on the door
one is not operating and is putting the microwave in the safe mode. It thinks the door is open.
at 6 bucks each change them all. just use the right ones at the 3 different locations.they come out of. No power and do one at a time and remove the micro holder from the microwave it's easyer to work on. Take note to the McDs microwave behind me....

When started,light& turntable operate normally,but no heating by microwave. Transformer normally sounds smooth,but now makes rattle or vibrating noise,like something is loose.

Check the door safety intertlock micro switch for proper behavior. If it is faulty, the oven will think the door is open and will not turn on the magnatron.

Sharp Covection Oven/Microwave stops after 1min on any setting

This 59-second stop failure is due to a problem in one of the damper-related components, most likely the switch, but it may also be the motor or the damper door.

The damper is a door inside that opens or closes depending on cooking mode. If the controller thinks that the door is not in the right position, it will shut down the cook cycle.

See the attached sample photo.

If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:

We even have a video on our site that shows you how to safely & easily remove the control panel assembly to send it for service.

Viking Micro noise

The noise is probably from the high-voltage transformer. When it is overloaded, the excess magnetic field it produces vibrates its wire coils. Odd that it only happens for a brief time. It is either defective itself (in which case it may go a long time) or it is getting overloaded by the magnatron/capacitor/diode on its output (in which case it will get worse shortly)
Hope Ya Fix it
