Question about Sharp R-1610 Microwave Oven
Microwave also seems to come on by itself whenever it feels like. i do not thing it is actually cooking but it sounds like it. sometimes it is quiet and other times it is either humming, or the fan is on, or the panel is lit up or it sounds as if it is in use. it is an over the range convection microwave (sharp). no model number as though it was installed in house when house was purchased. thanks for helping.
To many variables and testing needed to explain, but my feeling is that the board is faulty. Have had that happen on a few occasions but with a different brand. On occasion ive seen microwave come on when door is opened but that was loose limit switches for the door latch. Normally humming is due to a faulty magnatron, but it can also be from incorrect voltage onto the magnatron due to the faulty board. Need to concider if repair cost is worth it even though Sharp is excellent microwave.If you do, i would start with the board.
