Sharp carousel microwave


Sometimes, bits of food get behind the microwave generator mica cover and cause this EXACT problem they short out the microwave energy and spark. . It is NOT broken but DONT let this happen for more than a few seconds. !!!! You will see the Mica (looks like plastic) cover from inside the oven and will be on one of the sides.It looks oblong normally, It is actually transparent to Microwaves and is how they get from the generator in to the oven. Give it a real good clean around the edges or better still take it out to clean. and it should be fine

The microwave Generator does not want to work.


By generator, I think you mean, the magnetron that heats the food, correct? Either the magnetron has fried or some part of the circuitry to it has fried. If the magnetron has fried, then you are better off getting a new microwave as the magnetron costs almost as much as a new one. Working on a microwave can be dangerous, so if you want to see if something else is fried, find someone with electronic expertise to test the components to the magnetron.

Let me know how this works out for you.

The carousel in our Sharp Microwave/Convection Oven suddenly stopped turning. Nothing seems to be blocking it--it whirls around when I push it. Any ideas?


Got someone to come look at it, and the motor for the turntable has burned out! We're ordering the part!
Thank you!

the fuse to the magnetron may be blown or the mag it's self is gone. if the door switch was bad the unit wouldn't rotate the carousel. if it is the fuse (check with a multi-meter and check continuity across both side of the fuse, acheap one will do) if it is good, time to replace the micro, as they are cheap and repair would cost more than to replace. hope this helps.

Sharp Carousel Microwave R-1460A no power, door switch went first


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.

Ceramic fuses of 15A or 20A rating are available at home improvement stores like Lowe's, places like Wal-Mart and local appliance stores.

Ceramic fuses are preferred because they are considered flameproof.
