We have the service manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you. You will need the free Adobe Reader to view or print it.

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or occasionally a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

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. Other times, 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.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help. And please mention your model number when you write.

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

There are door switches and one of them is evidently out of adjustment or the little actuator arm on it is.

My sharp microwave/convection oven come on, clock counts down but it does not heat nor does the turntable turn. About a week ago the breaker was tripped by it I think but it was fine until now. It doesn't...


Hi,

It sounds like one of the door micro switches is bad. There are three micro switches typically. A primary interlock, a secondary interlock and a monitor switch. It is most likely the primary or secondary interlock switch. You may need to take your switches to a professional appliance shop to determine which one is bad.


Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Microwave will not work


Even though you don't mention the model number, you posted under Sharp model R-1491, so I'll assume that's it.

You say when trying to work the actual microwave, you get nothing?

We could use a little clarification, but FixYa only gives you one shot at posting a help request.

When you enter the cooking time and press "Start", if the timer counts down and the oven lamp comes on, but the the turntable, cooling fan, and microwave section do not run, then you have a bad secondary interlock (bottom door switch) or its mount is bad.

We have the applicable service manuals for these models and have uploaded it to our site here and here to help you.

Also look at this info on door switch diagnosis and replacement.

Hope this helps.

No Heat


This is probably due to a bad door switch, most likely the top one. The microwave got hot because the cooling fan was not running. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your model number here: http://www3.sears.com/
