Sharp microwave model R-218L(W) I changed the burnt fuse after a power outage. It now powers on and works but not cooking


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
My experience is here:
http://blog.fixya.com/index.php/2010/05/award-winning-service
Most likely the fuse failed as a result of a power diode or capacitor failure and not a a result of a power failure. You can see the diodes here:
http://www.appliancezone.com/SearchProducts.aspx?ID=WB27X608&x=12&y=9 If the diode or capacitor fail the unit will not fire the magnetron and will cause the internal fuse to fail. One these smaller 800W units if someone operated the microwave empty it often caused the diode to fail.

You have to ground the capacitor multiple times with the BLADE of a screwdriver then disconnect the diode from the capacitor to test it with a meter. In one direction it will read continuity and in the other direction (leads reversed) it will read open. No other reading is acceptable. Opens or shorts in both directions = bad diode.

To test the capacitor you probe bothe terminals with a metsistance scale of R X 1,00 or preferably R X 10,000 watching for a brief jump in resistance and then the meter drifts to infinity each time the meter leads are reversed. No jump or an open or ground for that matter = bad capacitor. These are the 2 main reasons microwaves stop cooking.

I think you will find the diode is bad.

Does not turn on all the numbers on panel are zero's and blinking, did try unplugging still nothing


Flashing zeros are a sign of a momentary power loss. Usually you also get a Pf error also. Not always....

Try this and if it does not work let me know.

Press Stop / cancel
Press clock
Set time
Press clock

Attempt normal use.

Pf code flashing on oven


PF = Power failure.

Usually all you have to do is press stop / cancel, then Clock then CLOCK again. After the time is set your microwave should work normally again.

If this does NOT correct your problem I need a complete model number in any future responses.

I am having a problem with my Panasonic Microwave oven. the operating panel is a touch type one. Now whenevr I am pressing any button, I am not getting any beep sound nor the display panel is showing any...


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

This can happen when there is a power failure. Usually there is a PF in the display but you can also get 88:88

Try this first: Press stop / pause or cancel then clock and try and set the time. If at that time you do not get any beeps your control board most likely has a problem. To dig deeper if you wish to have more assistance I need your complete model number to possibly troubleshoot.
