On these models, this is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

If you think it might be the controller, we regularly repair these for customers nationwide with our guaranteed $39.95 service. Details of our service are at our site, too.

Sharp microwave door won't open


Usually a mechanical issue with the door release assembly. Likely needs to come apart and parts be replaced. More often, it's cheaper to just replace the microwave as a whole

Sharp R8310 blows inside fuse when microwave


If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

Here is a link you or someone you know can use to test it, but please read the safety info:

On most Sharp models, you press Clock, then the digits for the time, then either Clock or Start.

You may have to open & close the door, then try it.

If you still need more help, please reply back or visit http://www.sharp.co.uk - they may have a user manual available for download.
