My microwave stopped working you can input time but when you push start nothing happens it has power and everything just will not start its like the start button does not work


Possibly a bad door switch behind the holes where the latch hooks go into. Usually with the bad switch the timer counts down but nothing runs. It all depends on which switch is bad. Usually 3 switches inside.

My microwave is 25 years old, will it be working to maximum efficiency


If all the settings work and the door closes ok . why throw it out ?. It may not be quite as efficient power wise as a brand new one. the few cents extra to run it against the price of a new one, I would stay with old faithful.

Sharp Carousel R530BK microwave won't cook unless light pressure is kept on the door button.


There are door switches and one of them is evidently out of adjustment or the little actuator arm on it is.

Sharp carousel convection oven starts turning but stops. Its seems to works better when the plate is not on. Any ideas


If it stops after 59 seconds, this is a problem in one of the damper-related components, either the damper switch or damper motor or the damper door may be binding.

The damper is a door inside that opens or closes depending on cooking mode. If the controller senses that the door is not in the right position, it will shut down the cook cycle.

If you had mentioned your model number, I could have possibly given you a link to the service manual.

So I'll just give you a general answer and say that you can find Sharp exploded views and order Sharp parts from the Sears Parts Direct Web site.

If it's random or intermittent, chances are it has a bad top or bottom door switch or door switch mount.

Sharp Carousel Model R-209KK-W is flashing all 8's and keypad not working


The first thing to try is to do 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.

If it still doesn't work, it may need repair, which can be done for $39.95 in most cases.

When I shut my microwave door, the light staays on and the carousel starts going around. I can program my cooking time but, it will not engage and star cooking. Meanwhile, the carousel continues to go...


It's probably a bad door switch or door switch mount, probably the top one, which is the door sensing switch.

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

You can order Sharp parts from
Encompass here or from the Sears Parts Direct Web site.

Turntable stopped working


Most of these are belt driven. You need to uncase the unit and check the belt.

Like anything with high voltage, use good safety practices.

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!

Toaster Master 1979 has less power


Because the microwave energy is beamed into the interior of the microwave and then dispersed by a metallic "stirrer," the pattern of the energy can be fairly consistent, rather than completely random. But this pattern sometimes causes certain portions of the food to overcook (creating tough spots) and others to undercook. A microwave oven with a carousel is far better at cooking the food consistently--the pattern becomes quite random while the carousel is turning.

Whirlpool(GH7145XF2-0) does not work occasionally


That's how it would sound if you were cooking on a power level less than full power.

If you enter the cooking time and hit Start, it should cook at full power by default and not cycle like you describe.

If you are using some sensor cook setting or automatic type cooking setting, it may cycle like that normally.

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.

If you don't have your manual, you can download it free here. Check the lower right area to enter your model. number.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
