Question about Sharp R-520LK Microwave Oven

1 Answer

I have an awesome sharp carousel sensor microwave but i burnt my wheat pack in it and now there is a terrible smoky smell coming from the machine every time I open the door even though I have cleaned it and been putting soda bicarbonate in it. What should I do? I also need to replace the glass tray as my husband dropped it when he took the microwave outside because of the smell. Is there anything I need to know. ie re safety? There were no flames and it seems to go okay.

Get some paper towels and clean the insides out with vinegar, do this once every two hours over a period of 8 hours. Then leave a box a baking soda inside the microwave with the door open outside overnight.

That should do the trick!

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

I think it might be a good idea to consider having the appliance replaced, the unit is a fire hazard and judging by the burning smell it is on the way out.

Sharp carousel 2 model r-7470 everything workjing but not heating


Sandra from the information you have provided the magnetron has failed it sometimes gives off a odour when it is about to go, this part is the heart of the machine and the most expensive, depending who you deal with prices will vary.I strongly recommend you have it checked out by a professional so you can decide the course of action.

Burnt fish smell in microwave


Mix vinegar and water in a small container, set timer for 60 seconds and start the microwave, when it starts to steam it will bond to the interior, at that point dis-engauge microwave oven, if smell is still present open a small box of baking soda let sit for 24 hours in the oven before use.

I was using my sharp carousel microwave and there was a strange electrical burning smell coming from it. Food inside microwave did not get hot. Any ideas of what could have gone wrong? John


Hello John044,
Chances are you've experienced an arc of some sort within it and if it is not working now, I would assume that your Magnetron, Filament Transformer of HV Capacitor failed and that is what you are smelling. Unfortunately, none of them are user servicable items so I would reccomend that you scrap that one.. The cost to repair would exceed the cost to replace,,, I am sure that isn't what you wanted to hear but those are the facts...
Regards,
Rick
