    I found the problem this morning. The upper door switch had broken loose from its holder, i. e., the plastic piece holding the switch in place broke. I was able to get the switch stabilized in place and the microwave oven is now operational again. Thanks for everyones interest. This is a great site.

    When I close the door the motor runs (the turntable does NOT turn). It stops when I open the door. I can not program any functions, i.e. change time, hit two minutes to cook, put in a power level, etc. I have a Sharp R-1461. Any suggestions?

You mean the turntable motor turns whenever the door is shut, even if you're not cooking?

If that's the case, then the problem would probably be a stuck relay (RY3) on the control circuit board, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

    Right! These can be hot-glued if you don't want to go to the trouble of replacing the door hook (switch mount).

    If you use any glue, the surfaces have to be squeaky clean and dry.

Turn table stop turning and wont heat

Your oven has a couple of switches inside that are operated by the door latches. One of them controls the power to the turntable and magnetron tube power transformer. The switch is either out of adjustment (which can happen if the oven door gets closed real hard) or is bad. I would suggest letting a professional check the oven and repair the problem. Door repairs have a direct effect on microwave leakage and it's better to have them done safely.

You will want to replace the fuse and door switches. You will not be able to run it without replacing door switches. You do not need a new microwave. Door switches go bad, it has nothing to do with radiation.
