Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part (such as a shorted diode)

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

No Heat


The microwave sends out a strong radio frequency burst that vibrates the water molecules in your food and causes them to heat through friction.
No heat means no rays..means a new microwave! Cheaper than fixing..go to Craigs list

Sharp microwave r95stm not heating


This a common problem, the likely cause is a bad magnetron "heats food" and is the heart of the microwave oven, if the item is five years or more, cheaper to replace.

Sharp 1870 just quit cooking and no turntable


The fact that the microwave and convection both do not heat indicated that the oven is in demo mode, check the user manual, otherwise it will possibly be a relay not triggering, may need a pcb replacement, check Demo mode 1st....Phil

Microwave works fine, but wont heat food....


I would say the high voltage rectifier diode has blown.

See http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html for help in diagnosis.

Okay, now that I see the model number, that's a US model:

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