Sharp Microwave turn table turning irregualrly

I have sharp microwave that was manufacturerd in October 2006 from Cosco for under $100. All the function works but lately the turn table rotation is irregular. It turn slower than usual. I checked with a Sharp authorized repair service in town and they charge $60 per hour. Is there a way to fix it myself?

You can see and hear a YouTube video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven. You may have to cut the cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.

You can probably find an exploded view and order parts by entering your model number here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com

Sharp parts are usually less expensive when ordered from Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com

That would be just a defective secondary interlock (bottom door switch) or its mount.

My help file on door switches is here.

The service manuals you need are here and here.

My over the stove Sharp Carousel Model # R-1505F turn table stopped turning. What part do I need to replace. Also, I broke the glass turn table plate. What size is that and where can I order another...


Sears Parts Direct has the parts diagrams and many parts for the R-1505 microwave. The glass plate is part 4-3 ($33.99) on this page: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Sharp-Parts/Microwave-Parts/Model-R1505/0958/0123370/50019999/00001?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= .


Without more tests, I can't be completely positive but the turntable motor is the likely problem. That is part 1-4 on the list above. However, it could be a wiring problem with the wiring to the turntable motor.

Partstore.com has many of the parts as well: http://www.partstore.com/Model/Sharp/Sharp/R1505.aspx .

I hope this helps.

Turn table starts then stops


The gears inside under the panel are getting worn. IT may have to be taken in for repair unless you can order the gears from sharp and replace them yourself.

Most likely the lower door interlock switch is bad. Cheap and pretty easy repair.
