if you google the model number and the brand you should be listed with a series of sites that supply manuals, service manuals, etc.

Hello, I just purchased a Sharp Carousell II convection microwave oven, also built in 1990, serial number 212806. I think the model number is R18244, but part of it is worn off. Can anyone tell me how to get a manual for it? I have never cooked with a convection oven before.

There are a couple of safety thermostats in the oven to shut down power if something overheats. One is on the magnetron tube (the microwave source), the other is on the cooking cavity. These sometimes go bad. There's also a power line fuse that may have failed, or become loose in its mounting clips. These can be tested with an ohmmeter; they should all measure very close to zero ohms if they're good.
Another possibility is that the control circuit board in the oven may have failed. I have worked on several Sharp ovens where the power transformer for the board has gone bad for no good reason. If the board goes bad the oven may appear to be dead as well.
Microwave servicing is best left to professionals. If you're thinking of keeping this one, take it to a service shop (or call for home service) and get an estimate. Then decide whether to repair or replace.
Hope this has helped a little. Thanks for using Fixya!
