Chances are your thermistor is defective.

This UK model is probably similar to the US model R-930 or R-820.

We have both service manuals at our site and while the part numbers will not necessarily be the same, they will be handy for safety, disassembly and troubleshooting. They are here and here.

When you're ready to order parts, visit Sharp UK for spares dealers and servicers.

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

Sharp carousel microwave convection oven keeps blowing fuse


The service manual is here:
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/r820bc_bk_bw_sm.pdf

You can get Sharp parts from Encompass here.

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.
See http://www.microtechfactoryservice.com/cap_test.html

If it went dead several seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.
See: http://www.microtechfactoryservice.com/xformer.html

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

Sharp carousel convection/grill/microwave maybe R990


Hello :

This happens because of a bad door switch . The plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door .

Check also the turntable . It could be out of it's right place .

WARNING :

1:Don't slam your microwave door because this may cause the fuse to blow and this is the reason of bad door switch problem .
2: A microwave is capable of giving you a serious electrical shock even when it's unplugged , so I recommend you to call a repair technician for help .

please don't forget to rate .

good luck .

R9H84B Sharp Microwave Convection from 6-6-1997, power stopped and turntable stopped. Light works and sounds like the power is working but nothing gets hot.


Is this the unit with the door that swings down like a conventional oven?? I think it is. This sounds like a door switch but could be a magnetron or cook relay on the control PCB.

Sharp r96st stops at 1 sec and halts whilst preheating oven


This is a problem in one of the damper-related components, either the switch or 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.

Sharp models stop after 59 seconds.

See the attached sample photo for a typical damper assembly.

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
