It sounds like what you are describing is called a "waveguide cover". You can purchase a replacement from a local parts supplier, or on-line at It is very easy to replace.

This sounds like either a thermistor or a damper switch/motor problem.
Amana's technical support line is 866-426-2621. This is the commercial side but they should be able to get you in touch with the domestic side.

I have an amana convection/microwave model acm1580as that needs a lamp replaces. I bought replacement lamp and after practically tearing appliance apart I located burnt out lamp. Now I don,t know how to...

Hi, since you have located the burnt lamp, all you need to do is to unscrew the burnt lamp and replace the new one by screwing it in.....
You only need to unscrew to remove the lamp and if you cannot remove by unscrewing because it is stuck in, then you need the assistance of an electrical tech to help remove with his pliers....

I need the little cardboard piece that hangs on the top of the microwave for my Emerson. Where can I get this that fits there?

Take a piece of cardboard and cut one out. You probably won't be able to find what you're looking for.

Micro/convection stops every minute

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 could be jammed.

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.

Many models stop after 59 seconds if there's a problem with the damper saystem.

See the attached sample photo for a typical damper assembly.

We have the applicable service manuals for your Sharp model and have uploaded them to our site here and here to help you.

You will need the
free Adobe Reader to view or print it.

The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics. You can also call them at 866-779-5835.

For the Amana, There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts for the Amana by entering your full model number here.

The Amana's damper switch is called "interlock switch" and is located at ref# 15 in drawing #5. The damper motor is ref # 22.

If a switch is all you need, we offer a universal type for only $5 postpaid which you can order here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Amana ACE208 doesn't work with a message 'door'

The door latch receiver has a spring action lever (inside) that is made out of plastic and cracks or wears through. You need to remove the cover and remove the two screws holding the door latch receiver. Now you can switch the top and bottom piviot switchs, putting the top one lower and the lower one on top..make sense? you"ll understand when you see it.
