Question about Sharp R-1480 Microwave Oven

Microwave won't START!!!!!!!!!!!!

The light is on and the door closes but the start button is not operating.
Every other button works but when you press start nothing happens, and the light in the microwave does not go out as if the door is still open.

It's usually a broken tab on the upper 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.

While replacing the switch holder is the preferred solution, using hot glue to secure the switch to the holder is much easier and quicker. Just be sure not to let the door be slammed from now on.

We have the R1480 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.

First of all, it's under warranty. So I would contact Maytag for a free fix.

See http://maytag.com/support/service_parts.jsp

For an out of warranty reply:

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

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

SOURCE: I have a F6 error

F6 on these models means that the cook relay on the control circuit board is shorted, and it is cooking anytime the door is closed.

We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid with a one-year guarantee.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

They're our favorite supplier.

Why won't my interior microwave light turn off and my microwave won't start?


It sounds to me that your door switches aren't working.Your oven is protected by a couple of switches that engage when you open or close the door.They control a couple of safety features and also your interior light.One of them seems defective.

Door latch


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Open Lever If the microwave door won't open the open lever might be broken. This part can be replaced separately.

Door Spring If the microwave door won't open the door spring may have broken. The door spring is located inside the door and keeps downward pressure on the door hook.

Door Latch If the microwave door won't open the door latch might be broken. The door latch is inside the microwave. The door hook, which is part of the door, engages with the latch to keep the door closed during operation. If the door latch or actuator breaks the door may not open.

Door Hook If the microwave door won't open the door hook might not be releasing properly. The door hook is installed inside the door and normally releases when the door is opened. The hook is made of plastic and will break over time. When this happens it will need to be replaced, it can't be repaired.

Button Spring If the microwave door won't open the button spring might be broken internally. The button spring can be replaced.
Button If the microwave door won't open the button might be broken internally. The button can be replaced.

Handle Actuator If the microwave door won't open the handle actuator might be broken. This is a plastic part which can become brittle over time. This part is connected between the door button and the door latch assembly.

Start button an 1/2 buttons on keypad no work in my GE JVM150H microwave. Interior light also stays on.


The door has latch switches that are part of the protection and operation when door is closed, is the new door identical and switches match up {same number} if everything checks and the door switches are all working, the door needs to be checked for alignment, if it's out a small margin the switches will not operate properly.

I have a Salton micorwave oven (MW-2027P). The timer works but the cook setting will not start. There is also no light on the inside when I open the door.


I had this exact same problem with my salton microwave! Even tried taking it back to the store, but with no reciept there was little they could do. Anyways try jiggling the clasps on the side of the the door, the ones that connect it to the microwave. Mind you don't jiggle too hard. Now firmly close the door, you should hear a distinct click. Now try it! The light only works when the microwave is on. The microwave won't work unless the door is closed properly and my problem was the claps were stuck! I hope this helps.

I have a microwave oven over the range ,brand Frigidaire , model CFMV156DC purchased in 2006 and stopped working , even the lights on the front panel are on when I press the start button it happened just a...


I have exactly the same problem. Everything works perfectly even fan, except microwave table won't turn. I just found out what's the problem... The door for some reason is sitting too low now, even though it is not obvious at all. It looks leveled with everything else, but it's not. Set your Microwave to let's say 30 seconds and turn it on. It will not do anything... but you just gently lift the door (while closed of course) few millimeters and your Microwave will start running like new. There is something wrong with those latches on the door, not touching the microswitches inside the Microwave. Doors must be properly closed in order for Microwave to work. This is due to poorly design. I yet have to figure out how to fix that permanently.

Microwave oven only operates if the door is held closed


If the microwave oven operates with the door open it is a serious issue. DO NOT OPERATE IT. Call a technician immediately. The RF frequency is extremely dangerous. the safety switches inside the oven are malfunctioning and needs to be replaced

Inside Light stays on and the Start Button will not work at all!


You probably broke the door sensor switch.

The part must be tested before replacement.

Parts can be purchased from Partselect, Appliancespartspro, or Repairclinic. Have a look on google.
