SOURCE: Sharp R-1874 shuts off after 59 seconds

That would be a problem in the damper assembly, either a bad switch or motor, or the damper door is jammed or blocked.

Consult the attached diagram for general reference.

The damper switch is the same as the primary interlock (door) switch.

SOURCE: Our sharp 957 will now

This is a problem in one of the damper-related components, most likely the switch, but it may also be the motor or the damper door.

This is also likely why your convection mode stopped working.

The damper is a door inside that opens or closes depending on cooking mode. If the controller senses that the door is not in the right position, it will shut down the cook cycle.

Sharp models stop after 59 seconds.

See the attached sample photo for a typical damper assembly.

SOURCE: Amana OTR Convection Microwave runs 59 seconds and shuts off

This sounds like either a thermistor or a damper switch/motor problem.

Sharp microwave r1870 only runs for 59 seconds


If it consistently runs for exactly 59 seconds, and shuts off, it's probably the control panel.

If it runs approximately that length of time, you might have a defective thermal protector on the magnetron, or the magnetron is running too warm for some reason.

Microwave stops after 59 seconds


Check that a "favourite" setting has not been selected. The unit may think that is the time that you want to cook. Im not sure about your model but see if there is any clear or cancel buttons to clear any pre programmed selections. If not, unplug the machine for 15 minutes to reset the controller and try it again.
