Question about Sharp Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

OK I have a Sharp Micro R-1600 that made a loud bang and now won't heat anything. everything seems to work including fan, led display, timer, clock, carousel etc. It turns on bit makes a much louder sound than before as it tries to heat something. I'm thinking it has to go to the repair people but I would like to know how to get it off the wall. There don't seem to be any visible bolts or screws attaching it to any of the cabinets so i'm thinking that it must be hanging on a rear bracket????

Having the repair people come and have a look at the oven. They may be able to fix it while in place and may not need to be removed from the wall.

I have a 12yo Sharp r-430cs microwave. The LED is not displaying all the "lights" in the numbers/alpha readouts. It is missing a lot more of the readout than it is showing. Everything else is working


Go to Sharp's website and check availability of the clock/timer readout board. Being that old you may not be successful, but it;s worth a try.

I have a sharp R 350 l. when i switched it on to heat some food it ran for about 10 secs then a loud bang.All functions work except that it wont heat anything.


Sounds like an electrolytic blew, but it could be any number of things. (Failure of one element could cause the failure of others, such as the magnetron, as well.) You could have it looked at, but if it's an inexpensive table-top microwave, it's less expensive to just go buy another.

Sounds like an electrolytic blew, but it could be any nuber i=of things. Usually when one element fails, others are damaged and are failing as well, such as the magnetron.
If it is an inexpensive table-top microwave, it would be less expensive to replace it with a new one.

Whirlpool MH3184XP Microwave Turns On, Heats, but sounds like fans not working. 4 years old, fans worked fine until they seem not as loud anymore. The magnetron is working fine as it heats (did the 1 cup...


Suggest you pull the plug out, remove outer cover and place a cup of water into the micro. Set power to minimum then switch on and take note if the fan works or not. If not, switch off immediately and have it replaced(magnatron will burn out if left to run without fan.)

Doesn't heat anything


It sounds like the micro generator has died.

Yes, you should buy a new one as the cost of repair is likely to be high.

My wife says that she was using the kitchen timer and everything went dead. no lights, no nothing. Any suggestions?


cavity therm is bad probably, some people use the micro as a timer thinking they are using the kitchen timer and it burns out the cavity therm. get a qualified svc company to replace the therm, if it is the therm it wont heat or start or anything, if its just the timer thats not working then i suggest a new clock board.

Heard a loud glass breaking noise, now micro-wave will not heat anything. Turntable works, everything looks fine but no heating. Model#R-1505LK


Does it seems to run louder?

I would suspect a shorted high voltage rectifier diode.
