Check your door satey interlock switches.

If these switches fail (do you open the door while the machine is cooking?), the microwave doesnt know the door is shut and will not turn on the magnatron.

If you need more help, let me know.

Sharp microwave & convection & turn table on model R1874F won't work


That would be just a defective secondary interlock (bottom door switch) or its mount.

My help file on door switches is here.

The service manuals you need are here and here.

You can get other Sharp parts from Encompass here or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

My microwave won't heat


The real clue here is strangely enough the table not turning.

All units have a switch in the side (usually the right side) of the cabinet--when door is opened it allows the unit to work but will not heat or the table (usually both) will not work.

It has to be got at from the inside of the unit--little plastic holder with the switch which looks like a leaf switch.

What I have seen several times (including a unit I own) is that from countless opening and closing the door the holder may break or even melt and the contacts on the switch no longer are in position to work when door is open.

The purpose of such a switch is simple---it prevents the unit from being used if the door is OPEN.

Not a hard or expensive repair

Turn table won't turn on ewave microwave oven


Almost certain if microwave still heats a bad motor or gear issue inside the unit--if unit will not heat the safety switch in the side that the door engages is the cause of the wheel or platter not turning--prevents unit from use if door open.

My Kenmore Built-in microwave doesn't heat and the turn table doesn't turn. Model 911-47812200


It is good that the microwave does not work all together. It might be an interlock button or even a relay connection burn on the main mother circuit board.

Need a qualified technician. The service manual will be like $20-50.

It won't heat water,but it will turn around


Sounds like you lost your HV diode. Magnetron could be bad but these days they are pretty good. Diode costs about $5 at www.mcmelectronic.com . It is located in left side near the rear and should be straightforward replacement. Let me know how this works out. Thanks for using FixYa. Contact me if you need more info.

Won't heat. Everything else works.


Magnatron is suspect. Need to put a voltmeter on it and see if the input (primary) side to the high-voltage transformer (big heavy iron thing in there) is getting 120Vac. Don't touch the other (high voltage) side of this transformer. If the power is there, you are looking at replacing the magnatron. Its affordable if you do it yourself - buy the part on EBAY - lookup "universal magnatron"

Microwave makes a loud noise while using.


Could you describe the noise?

It may be a noisy fan motor or a failing magnetron or high-voltage transformer.
