If you mean error "EE1" that means that magnetron 1 is not cooking, and it may be any of a number of components in the #1 cooking circuit.

We don't have any service manuals for Australian models at our site, but some US models' manuals may help in troubleshooting:

You can visit Sharp's Australian support site and click on the "Spareparts Outlets" link under "Frequented Resources".

Hi. Our 1 1/2 year old Sharp KB6524PS Microwave Drawer: While cooking oatmeal, at start of cycle, the microwave started arcing, then smoking. Shut off at 15 seconds. Microwave-safe china used.

I expect the arcing came from the waveguide cover or aerial cover having either a crack or carbonised food particles on it.
A new cover may affect a cure if the magnetron is not damaged.

Sharp microwave R-410LK fan and light do not turn off.

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

  1. Main control boardIf your microwave runs for a few seconds and stops, the first thing to check is the main control board to ensure that a shortage has not occurred. If the part is defective then it will need to be replaced to prevent continual shut offs. If this is not the issue, the next step would be to check for a faulty touchpad.
  2. Touchpad/Control panelIf the control board is not the issue and your microwave continues to shut off after running for only a few seconds, the next thing to check is your touchpad, which is also known as a control panel. Although uncommon for this issue, symptoms are usually that the display and some buttons are working properly; however, when selected some buttons are not functioning. If this is the case the touchpad will need to be replaced.

Sharp microwave 8888 is flashing and I cannot remove

see this steps and fix it. God bless you

Reset the clock. Press "Clock" and the correct time, using the number pads. Press "AM/PM" if applicable, and press "Start" or "Clock" to confirm.

  • 2 Press "Timer On/Off" to reset the timer if nothing on the touch pad will operate. Use the number pads to select a new timed amount, if desired, and press "Timer On/Off" to start. Press again to cancel.
  • 3 Press and hold "Clear/Off" for three seconds if the timer will not function or is blinking when you touch the pads. This will release the "Child Lock" feature. Make a new touch pad selection.
  • 4 Disconnect power to the microwave if following Steps 1 through 3 does not resolve the blinking timer. Wait a few minutes, and then restore power to reset the microwave.

  • However if the problem persist the display board
    main control board is faulty

    No matter what time i put in it cuts off in 60 seconds on a sharp

    This sounds like a bad damper switch or motor. Double check the shut off time....... see if it's actually 59 seconds..
    When you unplug the unit from the wall for 2 minutes then plug it bad in, you should be able to faintly hear a motor run for a few seconds. This is the damper motor running. This will verify that the motor is operating.....
    Also, check the thermistor.

    Hi, I have a Sharps R-23 AM 1900W microwave. When i use it, it starts the timer and counts down for a few seconds then stops and flashes with 'err 3' on the display. Can you help at all with...

    Is that code actually "EE3"?

    If so, that is called a Magnetron (1) and (2) failure, but it may not be the magnetron.

    It may be any of number of things, form door switches to control board relays to the high voltage parts.

    Methodical troubleshooting is needed, and we have the manual for similar models here.

    Clock will run down to 1 second of the minute and microwave will stop

    The surge probably didn't cause this. This common error indicates a problem in the convection damper circuit. It may be a defective damper switch, damper motor, or a jammed damper door. I have attached a drawing of a typical damper system. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: You can order parts for Sharp models from Tritronics at
