Sharp 1200w microwave seems to be tripping lightly (can hear clicking noises)and cause heating to be irregular


Clean the food off the inside top of the microwave Now,Or that noise you are hear will stop along with the microwave. The food gets on the Formica Squire which is how the micro waves heat your food. 1st unplug the Microwave then spray the inside of the unit with something like Fantastic or something strong and use glove so you don't burn you hand,Also if you have a scrub brush use it,And clean all the soap out and raise very well.

Buzzing sound... Turntable stopped. food heats up but uneven. No microwave fan when heating.. no light inside expensive fix?? Unit is 10 years old


If the microwave oven is 10 years old then it is time to consider a new unit, by your description it is going into cascade failure where different parts have stopped working, the buzzing sound is the magnetron warning you, it is about to fail. The fans job is to keep the magnetron cool while it is running.

The microwave will not heat food. It will turn on the turntable will go around and the time will count down but the food is not heated when done. tried different heat setting with no results.


This seems to be a common problem, there are three parts that will cause this, the magnetron "heats food" a common failure, the high voltage diode and capacitor are the other two culprits. The cost to repair will approach the price of a new oven.

I have a sharp over the range convection microwave modelr-1874F The convection works but the microwave sounds like it working, the turntable turns but it does not heat the food we tried unplugging it for...


Every time the microwave part of an oven do not heat it normaly means a faulty MAGNETRON (the device that produces microwves) unfortunately if it's the magnetron they are allmost as expensive as the oven it self, you could allways check for a burned fuse, (allways be prudent opening an applyance)

Good luck!

At least twice in the past month have had food explode all over the microwave (as if it was overheating). Items vented properly or not covered at all. this time, kept making poppong noises for at lesat 10...


If you have an item overheating, try looking at the directions on the unit for the watts and adjust cooking time according to the oven. Some foods will explode if left for too long in a quick heating microwave oven. If this is a new problem and the microwave is 4 years old, you may consider the unit is beyond its useful life. Its difficult to tell w/o knowing the brand, but it could be the meagtron tube is simply wearing/worn out. Let me know if this helps. m

Everything on my microwave works except it stopped heating food


I found this on another blog and it worked for me.


Model #KB6024MK, this is a Sharp microwave drawer that would open and close properly, but when started would not heat. These drawer units will sometimes close properly, but not enough to actuate the interlock switches to power the magnetron. A quick test is to turn the unit on and press in on the drawer handle while it is running. If you start hearing the low hum of the magnetron, the interlock assembly is out of adjustment. Removed the left side panel and gained access to the switch mounts to do a quick adjustment so when the drawer closes, the switches close properly to allow operation. It may take more than one adjustment to make it work properly so test it several times before reinstalling the side panel. It should work properly when the drawer auto closes and should not require any manual manipulation from the user.

Does not heat


The magnatron unit has malfunctioned. You should be able to replace that unit if you're mechanically apt, although with the price of microwave ovens, you might just as well get a new one that's under warantee.

3 year old unit, oven works, microwave does not


hi,

You may need a new magnetron, contact sharp or the store you got it from; most microwaves have a 3-5 year warranty on the magnetron. If it's not in warranty, find a good appliance repairman, this is a difficult and dangerous repair job.
