I need manual for Sharp Microwave Model R-209

One site that I went to with the number you gave, showed 13 models that start with R-209. They say that there are more letters at the end of the model number. Your best bet would be just to Google it, because this website wanted $43 for the manual and it was out of stock and would not be available for several weeks. I am sure that you can find it cheaper, if not for free, somewhere else. Have you tries checking with Sharp? Hope this helps!

On a Sharp, the first letter after the number refers to the version, and the next letter is the color. On Sharp, K=black, W=white, S=stainless, etc.

I have a Sharp Model 1460A Microwave. It quit working while warming something up yesterday. Outlet is good. No power to unit at all. No light working, etc. Is there a fuse that I can check to see if it...

Dead appliance, power on wall outlet.


Attempt this only if you are competent.

If your appliance has absolutely no functions at all, remove it from the mains supply, remove the case and see where the mains lead goes in to the appliance and follow the cable until you find the main fuse.
The usual cause of this fuse failure is the door switches are contaminated or sticking. Check the door switches before putting power back on to the appliance.
Hope this helps.

The numbers and letters on the digital readout on my Sharp R-1210 microwave are not fully formed and therefore hard to read.

We have the service manual and have uploaded it to our site here to help you with disassembly.

Did you have a power surge? Try unplugging the unit for 10 min and plug back in to reboot the curcuit board. If letters and numbers are being displayed it usually means the board is confused or fried.....

Sharp Microwave died after Power Surge

We have the R530ES service manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you. It's close enough to the R530EK and EW models, in case that's what yours is.

You will need the free Acrobat Reader to view or print it.

Actually you have two separate problems, and both are easily solved..

(1) The reason that only the inside light comes on when you try to cook is that your secondary (bottom) door interlock switch is bad, or its mount is misaligned or broken.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If you only need a switch, you can order one from us for $5 postpaid or local appliance parts stores, hardware stores, or places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

(2) The display problem is something we regularly repair these for customers nationwide with our guaranteed $39.95 service in about a week.

Feel free to contact me directly for more information & help.
