    I bought a Sharp Microwave Oven with Sensor, Grill and Convention functions, R-967(SL)M, a few years ago in London, United Kingdom. Problem: Now, each time the timer counts down to 1 second (for example, 1 sec. or 2 mins. 1 sec. or XX mins 1 sec.), the heating function just stop as long as the timer shows 1 second. In addition, I relocated to Hong Kong and the local Sharp customer service refused to provide any repair service (even if paying!) since I did not buy the product model in Hong Kong! The warranty period has ended, hence there is not an issue with warranty service. Appreciate if any expert(s) out there could kindly provide assistance or at least offer a direction/suggestion which I could pursue to get the appliance back to working again. Thank you!

Hi,

I see its some time ago now that you posted this and perhaps you've fixed your micro already or replaced with a new one. I have the same Sharp r-967 microwave which had the same 59 second problem. I researched a bit online found the sevice manuals and tracked the problem down to be the damper motor. I managed to buy one online and replace it quite easily. There are some diagrams online when searching for this problem but for different sharp models where the damper is near the door fixings. Its not the case on r967, its behind the circuit board and easy to remove with a stubby screwdriver. You can find spares from this place. 5 minute job. The 59 second thing is likely to be the either the door switches or the damper motor. Switches are between £5-10. All mine were fine so didnt have to replace any. A quick voltmeter test can check them.

I paid £26 in delivery. Hope it helps if not too late!

Sharp microwave r1870 only runs for 59 seconds


If it consistently runs for exactly 59 seconds, and shuts off, it's probably the control panel.

If it runs approximately that length of time, you might have a defective thermal protector on the magnetron, or the magnetron is running too warm for some reason.

No matter what time i put in it cuts off in 60 seconds on a sharp


This sounds like a bad damper switch or motor. Double check the shut off time....... see if it's actually 59 seconds..
When you unplug the unit from the wall for 2 minutes then plug it bad in, you should be able to faintly hear a motor run for a few seconds. This is the damper motor running. This will verify that the motor is operating.....
Also, check the thermistor.

Sharp model R-1870 Carosel quits cooking at 59 seconds


This is a problem in one of the damper-related components, most likely the switch, but it may also be the motor or the damper door.

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.

We have the applicable service manuals for these models and have uploaded it to our site here and here to help you. You will need the free Adobe Reader to view or print it.

If a switch is all you need, we offer a universal type for only $5 postpaid which you can order here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Sharp r95 combination oven only stays on foe 1m before switching itself off


Check the damper motor - this closes a small metal door usually located behind the magnetron tube. If the unit runs exactly 59 seconds then cuts off, then that's most likely your problem.
