    So it's dead and there's no display?



    If so, have you checked the outlet and breaker?



    If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.



    Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

Check fuse. Remove 3 screws from the plastic grill located at along the top front of the unit. Remove the phillips head screw above the control panel. Slide up and pull out to partially remove control panel. You will see a white fuse. Replacement is CD3G 125v 20amp or BUSS ABC 20 or Little Fuse 314020 at 250v 20a. Radio shack caries the ABC.

It may be a loose fuse holder or a rare condition, an intermittent fuse.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, & testing.

Yes your oven's controller is probably malfunctioning you need to replace the SYSTEM BOARD but I personally suggest to buy an other oven.... the system board will be hard to find and expensive...

See if other electronics is acting funny since the power loss... you could CLAIM the damage from the insurance company

Good luck!!

The clock works & counts down but the microwave won't heat


  • Disconnect the power for 30 seconds. After restoring power, do not set the clock.
  • If your model has an ON/OFF clock display, you can choose not to have the time displayed. To choose this option, press the 0 pad for about three seconds. To Turn the display back on, press the 0 again.





Touch the clock pad. Enter in the correct time of day by touching the numbers in sequence. Touch the clock pad again.

SHARP R-1460 MICROWAVE WAS USING ON A SANWICH IT DID NOT COMPLETE HEATING. NOW HAS NO POWER ON PAD ETC. OUTLET POWER IS OK


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

Otherwise, it will need to be checked. I would suspect the magnetron thermostat, cavity thermostat and fuse.

To find helpful exploded view diagrams and get part numbers, you can just enter your full model number at the Sears parts site.

It's often more economical to order parts from Encompass here or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

Sharp microwave


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount (which are pretty simple problems to fix) or occasionally a problem on the control panel.

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.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

You can usually find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number here at the Sears parts site.

If you only need a switch, you can order part # QSW-MA085WRE0 from Tritronics.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.

Makes a loud humming sound and blows fuse behind controll panel


Most likely a shorted capacitor is causing the fuse to blow. Easy and cheap to fix.

This is usually caused by either a bad upper door switch, a loose upper door switch mount, or occasionally a problem on the control panel.
