Microwave fuse keeps blowing

I have a Sharp Carousel 1000watt microwave. I couldn't find the model number. It lost power and I opened it up to check the fuse. I replaced the fese with a 250v / 20 Amp fuse. It powered on and I was able to set the clock. As soon as I tried to run it for a test, it blew the fuse. Any suggestions or "flow chart" advice would be helpful. Thank you.

Sharp carousel microwave convection oven keeps blowing fuse


The service manual is here:
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/r820bc_bk_bw_sm.pdf

You can get Sharp parts from Encompass here.

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.
See http://www.microtechfactoryservice.com/cap_test.html

If it went dead several seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.
See: http://www.microtechfactoryservice.com/xformer.html

If it goes dead or blows the breaker (or GFI) when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

Yesterday, my sharp carousel r-1460 went dead. I took apart the front keypad and replaced the 20amp fuse behind it. the microwave light and fan work.But, when I start microwave to cook something, pop! fuse...


If the 20A fuse is blowing, it is often the high voltage transformer or magnetron. If this is the case, and the microwave is not under warranty, replace it. Residential microwaves are generally considered disposable. Parts and labor are just too expensive. A magntron or transformer can cost more that half the cost of a new microwave.

Sharp microwave stopped working


Is it totally dead? No display? Or just does not cook? If it made an unusual noise before it 'died' something probably shorted out.... You need an ohm meter to troubleshoot. If the fuse is open, switches and HV circuit need to be checked before replacing fuse. Sometimes on the convection Microwaves (not just Sharp) the fuse will 'rust' and open rather than blow. Or the fuse holder can over heat and fail.

Sharp Carousel Microwave has no power


I too believe that a "protection fuse" was possibly blown. It would need to be found and get replaced. Hopefully it is just a fuse and nothing else because the way it sounds to me, the microwave may be damaged.

Good Luck!
