We have a Sharp carousel master-mind 2 model

We have a Sharp carousel master-mind 2 model R-9580 700 watt. it is 22 years old and has never missed a beat until today. everything is normal except it does not heat fully on high. It is taking 2 to 3 times as long to do what it used to do on high.

SOURCE: we have a sharp carousel

Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part (such as a shorted diode)

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

The owner's manual should spell that all out.

But if you don't still have yours, you can download one via Sears' "Manage My Home" site here. While it's free, you will have to register.

(You *may* be able to download it here without logging in. If not, go ahead and register. It's free.)

My microwave is 25 years old, will it be working to maximum efficiency


If all the settings work and the door closes ok . why throw it out ?. It may not be quite as efficient power wise as a brand new one. the few cents extra to run it against the price of a new one, I would stay with old faithful.

I have a 12yo Sharp r-430cs microwave. The LED is not displaying all the "lights" in the numbers/alpha readouts. It is missing a lot more of the readout than it is showing. Everything else is working


Go to Sharp's website and check availability of the clock/timer readout board. Being that old you may not be successful, but it;s worth a try.

Sharp Carousel R530BK microwave won't cook unless light pressure is kept on the door button.


There are door switches and one of them is evidently out of adjustment or the little actuator arm on it is.

I bought a Sharp Carousel 1100 watt microwave about 8 months ago but now it makes a louder noise when it's on and it doesn't heat. Can I easily fix this myself or is this now trash?


A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron.

Since it's less than a year old, it's fully under warranty and Sharp will fix it free.

You can contact Sharp at 1-800-BE-SHARP (1-800-237-4277) or visit them online to get it fixed.

You have to replace that small screen which is called wave guide. If there is a sharp authorised service centre near to your place you can buy the part from them. Do not work the oven without replacing that part.

Sharp Carousel Convection Oven. Model R-9H54.touch pad


It depends on what you mean by "a problem with the touch pad assembly".

If some or all keys do not respond, you would probably need a new keypad, but the key units for all Sharp R-9H-series models have been unavailable for a few years now.

These units did indeed last a long time.

Sorry I can't bring better news.
