Question about Sharp R-1460 Microwave Oven
I have the same problem.
I found that by removing the control panel, then moving the small red-buttoned switches around the door open switch seemed to solve the problem.
We felt the problem was a mechanical problem because closing the door very gently permitted normal operation.

Hello Derrick Baker - Typically no fan should come on without starting the microwave. There is one exception! For an example, if the microwave becomes too hot from something that is cooking on the stove below the microwave, the fan will come on and will cycle off once the bottom of the microwaves cools back down. If the fan is turning on when the door is closed, more than likely, a door switch as failed. At this point, I recommend connecting with a certified technician to move forward accurately to assist with the repairs.

Quite often this is due to a bad door switch. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure.
