Question about Sharp R-1480 Microwave Oven
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.

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

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.
If you prefer, you can buy a new circuit board (part number 8169733 for $150.27) from the Pros here.
They're our favorite supplier.
