Question about Sharp R-316FS Microwave Oven

Open Question

I have brought with me from singapore a 1100 Watt SHARP Microwave Model R-398(S). While in transit to Mumbai, unfortunately, the outer body has got dented with the result the door doesnt open. By connecting, the LCD display lights up but I do not know if the micro is working. Do you think the outer dented body can be reasonably straightened to allow the door to open/close enabling me test and use the unit?

SOURCE: Microwave auto-starts when door is closed

You probably have a failing door switch or the mount which holds your door switch is loose or broken. In most designs, it is the upper door switch that will produce these very symptoms when it is intermittent or its mount is broken or loose. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure. Slamming the door, damage during shipping or transportation and sloppy manufacturing techniques or materials are the primary causes of trouble with the door switch mounts. I have a text file called "doorsw.txt" which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems, and a file called "safety.txt" which is of vital importance. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety and disassembly info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

SOURCE: Over the range microwave

I have the R-1460 in the same series with the identical symptoms. After reading MicrowaveSvc's solution I started taking apart to view the door switches and found the upper door switch to be the problem, but not a switch failure a support failure. A small bottom plastic support post that holds the switch in place was broken (probably from repeated use/abuse) allowing the switch to move when the door hooks were engaged, thus not actuating the button switch. Since the problem was mechanical rather than an electrical bad switch, I made a small support arm for the switch from an old plastic mechanical pencil and glued it in place to hold the switch in its correct position. Problem solved, microwave works! Thanks to MicrowaveSvc's description of door switches.

SOURCE: Sharp Carousel Microwave door latch stopped working door won't stay closed

Microwavesvc, that's what I've had happen with my sharp also, I carved a hook out of a piece of plastic and then epoxied it in, and haven't had any more problems with that.

Another problem I've had with the sharp (that just reoccured, I'm trying to figure it out) is that the micro-switches that the door latch push have gone bad. Originally just one went bad and I replaced it, now the micro has the light and fan on, and won't recognize being closed...

SOURCE: Hi our Sahrp Carousel microwave LCD panle display is not working

You have to replace the control board. Sharp has had problems with the display boards for awhile. There is no bulb or fuse you can change.

I need a new transformer for my Sharp Microwave Model # R1214 - the part number is RTRN-Bo68MREO (1100 watt microwave)


The part number has been changed to RTRN-B098MRE0. You can find it new on the Sears parts site and at Encompass parts. There's a used one available on eBay for quite a bit less. Given its cost, when the high-voltage transformer fails, most people find it's cheaper to replace the oven.

I have a 2004 Sharp R-1214 1100 Watt Microwave and the card like removable 3 x 4 inch plate broke (almost like cardboard) and it covered the vented opening. I don't have a users manual so I don't know the...


That's the waveguide cover you're talking about. It covers the opening in the side of the cooking cavity where the microwaves enter. The oven will work without it, but if you don't have the cover in place, food particles can get into the waveguide and cause problems. You can buy a replacement here.

I bought a Sharp Carousel 1100 watt microwave about 8 months ago but now it makes a louder noise when it's on and it doesn't heat. Can I easily fix this myself or is this now trash?


A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron.

Since it's less than a year old, it's fully under warranty and Sharp will fix it free.

You can contact Sharp at 1-800-BE-SHARP (1-800-237-4277) or visit them online to get it fixed.

I have a Sharp model R-315J, 1200 watt counter top microwave. The bulb has burned out and I can't figure out how to get into the unit to change the bulb. Anybody know?


You need to remove the outer cover. The bulb is located on the upper right part of the oven mounted atop an air duct.

We have the service manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

You will need the
free Acrobat Reader to view or print it in case you don't have it already.

Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.
