Question about Sharp R-1480 Microwave Oven
I tried the ICE60705 number and it did not cross http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/modelsearch.aspx?model=IEC60705
Is that a serial number by chance?
To do any of the below the chassis cover must be removed.
To perform a diode resistance check you must first ground the high voltage capacitor several times to avoid a nasty shock.
To check the Diode you have to disconnect one side if the diode before reading resistance. Read the Diode on R X 1000 and then reverse the meter leads is should only ONE way. IF it reads both directions or not at all then it has failed.
To check the HV Capacitor (After grounding) you reverse the leads repeatedlyand watch for a momentary jump on an analog meter EACH time the leads are reversed. No jump of the meter needle = bad Capacitor.
Diodes can be found here:
I know that this is an 850W free standing Microwave. I just can recall the model number from memory.
If you find either one of the 2 parts bad I recommend contacting a LOCAL appliance parts center with parts in hand for the simple fact the model number is not crossing.
Just make sure they failed per directions above before replacement.
Thanks again for choosing FixYa.
P.s. If the above parts check out good then that leaves the door switch or the magnetron as possible failures. If the Magnetron has failed you may want to evaluate repair vs total unit replacement cost of the microwave.
