Question about Sharp Microwave Ovens
Then the most likely suspects are:
- loose / corroded connection at the magnetron terminal
- bad magnetron (may buzz or hum, may not)
- bad high voltage transformer (may smell / smoke, may not)
- shorted high voltage rectifier diode (may hum, may not)
If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.
Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:
If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years) but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.
