Question about Microwave Ovens
Have a Sharp R-510AK Microwave Oven. When the Start button is pressed the main fuse blows. Thanks is advance for any and all help.
If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that\'s usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.
If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that\'s usually a failing high-voltage transformer.
Here are some links you or a friend can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:
You can probably find an exploded view by entering your FULL model number here: http://www3.sears.com (the 3 is correct)
You can order Sharp parts from Sears or from Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com
We\'re happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
