This is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch mount.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

My sharp carousel II microwave no longer heats food. Do I need to buy a new one?


The problem maybe the magnetron, or the inverter board if 7 years old or less, and possibly the keypad control board, by the time you add parts and labour cheaper to replace the microwave oven in the long run.

My microwave wont turn on. the power works, clock, timer and all electrical is working, it just wont turn on.


Most likely you have an interlock microswitch problem or a latch problem. as you just open or just close the door VERY slowly listen for 3 distinct clicks one for each of the 3 interlocks. Two you will hear as you press the door open button and the last one you will hear as the door just opens or closes. If you do NOT have 3 clicks you have a bad micro-switch.

I think you just have a simple micro-switch problem. However... if the latch assembly that holds the switch is cracked or broken it will have to be replaced. I have seen the plastic latch assembly fail causing the switch not to work properly.

If the internal fuse is good, I would suspect an open thermal cutout on or near the magnetron inside.
