Question about Sharp Microwave Ovens

Open Question

I have a Sharp model R-9330 Carousel Microwave Oven. I was going to warm some water and when I set it up to do so, it made a pop sound. Now, if I set it as usual, it turns on but does not cook. Does this sound repairable?

For the smell, do a Google search for "smell microwave" or "odor microwave" for many great tips.

If you need a new turntable support, you can order Sharp parts from Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com

Check the internal fuse. Unplug it, unscrew and take off the cover, the fuse should be easily found in the back by the power cord. I tlooks like a regular fuse but is white instead of clear glass because microwave fuses are special. You'll have to measure it with a meter as a result and be sure to replace it with the same kind. (try finding them at radio shack) Hopefully there isn't something more serious also.

SOURCE: R-4H84 Sharp Carousel II microwave oven stoped working

A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

The fuse is normally located on the floor of the chassis behind the control panel or between the door switches.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO) / thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the magnetron thermostat to open.

Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

When checking thermostats, if it has a hood fan thermostat, that should read open, as opposed to the others, which should read closed.

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

If it goes dead or blows the breaker when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

If it's intermittent or random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or a loose fuse holder, or even an intermittent fuse.

You should do a continuity test on the fuse while it's in the holder (with the microwave unplugged, of course) then turn the fuse by hand or take it out and put it back in, then test it again.

If you remove the fuse, then press the meter leads against the ends, it can allow internal contact to be made and make a bad fuse appear to be good.

SOURCE: I NEED A MANUAL FOR

I was looking for a manual for the oven, finally found someone to talk to from Sharp Co.
He did not have a manual but had me try some of the buttons on the front of the oven.
Some, in fact most, of them do not work. It was the convection part of the oven that I wanted to use because I am alone and do not always want to heat the oven for just one small something.
I am afraid it has been stored too long and would cost more to have it fixed.

Thanks for the e-mail.

MODEL R-395Y sharp carousel microwave not working. All power outlets are fine. Please help, cheers lyn


I was unable to locate a service repair manual specific to your microwave; sorry.

You'll must likely have to find a Sharp service and repair center.
I've attached a link that contains the user's manual to your microwave...it has the phone number and address of Sharp; perhaps you can phone them and ask where a repair center is located.

This is the diagnostic check list Sharp recommends before calling for service:
SERVICE CALL CHECK
Please check the following before calling for service:
1. Does the display light up?
2. When the door is opened, does the oven lamp come on?
3. Place one cup of water (approx. 250 ml) in a glass measure in the oven and close the door securely. Oven
lamp should go off if door is closed properly. Press the INSTANT COOK/START pad once.
A. Does the oven lamp come on?
B. Does the cooling fan work?
(Put your hand over the rear ventilation openings.)
C. Does the turntable rotate?
(The turntable can rotate clockwise or counterclockwise. This is quite normal.)
D. After one minute, did an audible signal sound and COOK
indicator go off?
E. Is the water inside the oven hot?
If "NO" is the answer to any of the above questions, please check your wall socket and the fuse in your meter box.
If both the wall socket and the fuse are functioning properly, CONTACT YOUR NEAREST SERVICE CENTRE

I wouldn't. Let it defrost i the fridge or if you are in a hurry, cold running water in a bowl in the sink. Microwave ovens cause warm spots and a health hazzard

Are you talking about the light inside the microwave? The front vent I think will allow you to get to the bulb. Should be a couple of small scrrews holding the vent cover on, remove them take vent off. Start it up again and see if the light bulb wiring or socket is arcing

Sharp Carousel Microwave has no power


I too believe that a "protection fuse" was possibly blown. It would need to be found and get replaced. Hopefully it is just a fuse and nothing else because the way it sounds to me, the microwave may be damaged.

Good Luck!
