Question about Sharp R-1510 Microwave Oven
There are two switches that are operated by the door prongs as they latch the door closed .. both switches have to be operated to enable the microwave ...you either have something cought in the door seal preventing it from fully closing or one of those switches is out of adjustment .. unfortunatly you have to remove the cabinet to get at the adjustments ... the switches are set so that the door has to be completly closed so there is no RF leakage .. so its a rather critical adjustment .. there is potentially fatal voltage and current inside the microwave so make certain that its not plugged in if you do anything inside ... it would be better to take it to a competent repair person .. that fix should only take a few minutes .. they would have the proper gauges to set it precisely ... if you feel confident that you can do it then you will be able to hear a click as each switch operates as the door is closed .. you should hear two clicks if you shut the door carefully .. loosen the switch that is not operating and move it just slightly until it reliably clicks each time the door is closed .. tighten it there .. make sure the door and its seal are not bent, warped dirty or otherwise damaged ... its a good idea to check for radiation leakage after any microwave fix .. there is a low cost instrument for doing this .. (microwave radiation leakage detecter) ... your repair person would likely have a better one than you can buy .. ...
