Does Not Shut-Off Completely

The microwave/convection systems work fine; however, when the cooking stopd, the light, fan and turntable run continuously. I tried unplugging the oven for a while and when I plugged it in again, the light, fan and turntable went on immediately.

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

If you someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

There may also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.

Just like others, the microwave component does not work. Convection works just fine. Before microwave quit, it appeared to have something to do with the door(?) I would put a napkin b/w door and by...


If the inside light, fan and turntable come on when you try to cook, but it does not heat, this is probably a bad primary interlock (top door switch) or possibly that switch's mount is bad.

See this file on safety, and this file on door switches.

We have the full service / installation manual for this unit, and have uploaded it here to help you.

If the inside light, fan and turntable do not come on when you try to cook, the 20A fuse is probably bad or loose in its holder.

Glass turntable in tricity tmc209 says "microwave only" What do I use for convection or combi cooking? Does turntable still need to rotate for convection cooking?


definately dont use the standard glass plate for convectional 'oven' cooking, as it will shatter. i have had TWO plates shatter so far before realising they should only be used for microwave cooking.

DCS - CMO24SS - 900 Watt - Microwave not Heating


If all appears to be running as its working but just no heat. Could be issue with magnetron. You could also have loose connections to magnetron or somewhere in high voltaged as well.

Sharp R-1871 microwave/convection oven. Microwave will not work


This may be due to the microwave section not working. Check the high voltage diode if it is ok, replace the Magneton.

Sharp 1870 just quit cooking and no turntable


The fact that the microwave and convection both do not heat indicated that the oven is in demo mode, check the user manual, otherwise it will possibly be a relay not triggering, may need a pcb replacement, check Demo mode 1st....Phil

Clicking sound sporadically


That particular skillet is just too heavy a load for the turntable system to handle.

I would suggest a lighter skillet or a different container, otherwise, the motor or shaft or both will be damaged.

It is of course perfectly okay to put metal in a microwave (after all, that's what they're made of!) but you just have to do it only according to the instructions in the owner's manual.

And as you know, metal in convection mode poses no problem at all.

You just need to use a lighter or different container.
