My assumption by your question is that you want to know how to install the exhaust adapter..which has a door in it that acts like a damper to vent either vertical, horizontal or recirculate. I can send you a link that will show the duct and explain how it is installed, the bulk of the info that you ask for will be found on page 5 of this manual...or click on oven exhaust duct on the left hand side...Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!

Microwave oven stops after 59 seconds


This is a problem in one of the damper-related components, either the switch or motor or the damper door may be binding.

The damper is a door inside that opens or closes depending on cooking mode. If the controller senses that the door is not in the right position, it will shut down the cook cycle.

Sharp-made models stop after 59 seconds.

See the attached sample drawing for a typical damper assembly.

If a switch is all you need, we offer a universal type for only $7.50 postpaid which you can order here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Unit shuts down every 59 sec. No matter how much time, with or without anything in micro and I figure to replace motor and switch. How do I get to those parts in unit? Does it have to come down?

That would be a problem in the damper assembly, either a bad switch or motor, or the damper door is jammed or blocked. Consult the attached diagram for general reference. The damper switch is the same as the primary interlock (door) switch.

Its location varies by model, but you'll have to take the outer cover off to find it.

The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type HERE

I had the same problem. Turned out to be the micro switch and damper motor. I replaced both myself and fixed the problem for less than $40.00. The best advice I got was replace the switch, reconnect the motor and make sure the motor runs through a damper door cycle. It didn't run, even though it showed continuity and had power, so I replaced the motor which solved the problem. The micro switch which is activated by the cam on the damper motor has to be cycled within one minute, or the unit shuts itself off. The damper motor on my model R-1870 is found in the right rear section of the assembly when facing it. You have to remove the unit, and remove the outer casing to get to it. The damper is a simple sheet metal door, activated by the motor, and the switch mounts at the top of the motor and is activated by the same cam that activates the door.


Good luck.
