Question about Sharp R530E 1200 Watts Microwave Oven
Probably the failure of a high-amperage fuse inside the unit.
The electronics are generally separately fused so one section can fail leaving the other functioning.
If there is no external fuseholder on the back panel, it will be necessary to remove the housing to access the innards.
The fuse that has blown may have blown because of metal fatigue but the cause could also be more serious, namely the high voltage diode (or diode bridge) that converts high voltage AC into the DC required for the magnetron or even the magnetron itself may have developed an internal short.
If you locate the fuse, buy two of them and if the first replacement fails again, then the diode(s) or magnetron has failed and with the cost of service plus parts markup, you will be better off replacing the whole unit.
