Question about Sharp R-1491 Microwave Oven
The fan and lights run, but when trying to work the actual microwave, i get nohting. Could it be a fuse? where are the fuses located? thank you
Even though you don't mention the model number, you posted under Sharp model R-1491, so I'll assume that's it.
You say when trying to work the actual microwave, you get nothing?
We could use a little clarification, but FixYa only gives you one shot at posting a help request.
When you enter the cooking time and press "Start", if the timer counts down and the oven lamp comes on, but the the turntable, cooling fan, and microwave section do not run, then you have a bad secondary interlock (bottom door switch) or its mount is bad.
We have the applicable service manuals for these models and have uploaded it to our site here and here to help you.
Also look at this info on door switch diagnosis and replacement.
Hope this helps.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
