We had an R-240 or R-250. I can't tell you which because the other night while not in use it caught our kitchen on fire. It was just plugged in and not in use. The insurance guy said that this can happen. Maybe don't buy the R series from Sharp. Or keep it unplugged when not in use.

HOW DO i CHANGE THE BULB IN MY SHARP R-651ZM MICROWAVE OVEN


Changing the light bulb on your Sharp carousel microwave will allow you to have needed light inside the oven. Microwaves are not designed for consumers to change the light bulb due to manufacturer liability, but it can be done. Following the proper steps will ensure a successful installation. Step 1 Unplug the Sharp carousel microwave from the electrical outlet.
Step 2 Locate the screws around the outer cover of the Sharp carousel microwave and unscrew all the screws.
Step 3 Lift off the covering.
Step 4 Locate the bulb and unscrew. Screw in your new bulb.
Step 5 Replace the cover and screw back tightly. Once done, test your new bulb.

My sharp carousel microwave only works when I depress the door knob halfway down. What could be wrong ?


All microwaves have a safety lever or switch that prevents the unit from working if door is not closed all the way. Most of them you have to take the unit apart as access to it is from inside--what happens is when door is closed the latch or door moves the lever--seen a number where lever is loose or even the holder for it cracked.

Most shops are familiar with this and it should if the problem not be a real expensive repair.

Built-in Sharp Carousel II Microwave Convection Oven died.


There are a couple of safety thermostats in the oven to shut down power if something overheats. One is on the magnetron tube (the microwave source), the other is on the cooking cavity. These sometimes go bad. There's also a power line fuse that may have failed, or become loose in its mounting clips. These can be tested with an ohmmeter; they should all measure very close to zero ohms if they're good.

Another possibility is that the control circuit board in the oven may have failed. I have worked on several Sharp ovens where the power transformer for the board has gone bad for no good reason. If the board goes bad the oven may appear to be dead as well.

Microwave servicing is best left to professionals. If you're thinking of keeping this one, take it to a service shop (or call for home service) and get an estimate. Then decide whether to repair or replace.

Hope this has helped a little. Thanks for using Fixya!

Squeaky carousel


It can be oiled with something akin to Pam (cooking oil spray). You don't want petroleum products in your oven -- it'd take forever to get the fumes out.

I'd try first just spraying some under the turntable as far back toward the center as you can get it -- run oven -- spray some more, etc., etc.

Vibration sound


There are two possible sources; the fan, which may have a loose sleeve bearing (fan must be replaced), or a transformer with loose laminations. The latter is a rare occurrance since most transformers are 'potted' or treated with epoxy resin.  
After pulling the plug, the housing will be fairly easy to remove with a half-dozen or so screws around the edge of the back panel.
If the fan is then accessible, you could block the blades with any insultating material and briefly turn the unit on. Keep fingers clear of ANY part inside; danger of electrocution. If the vibration is missing, then the fan is at fault.

Blown Microwave


Most likely a shorted capacitor and a blown fuse. Very common problem on that model.
