Chances are that the high voltage circuit or possibly the magnetron tube may be defective...the fuse inside is for the whole unit..,.the magnetron tube is the device that emits the microwave radiation...you may need to have a qualified person examine the unit to see what is bad inside..I don't recommend unqualified persons doing this as there are potentially FATAL voltages inside needed to power up the mag tube(around 2100VAC)...If the service man tells you it is a mag tube then you may want to look in to purchasing a new micro..as mag tubes are very expensive

MODEL R-395Y sharp carousel microwave not working. All power outlets are fine. Please help, cheers lyn


I was unable to locate a service repair manual specific to your microwave; sorry.

You'll must likely have to find a Sharp service and repair center.
I've attached a link that contains the user's manual to your microwave...it has the phone number and address of Sharp; perhaps you can phone them and ask where a repair center is located.

This is the diagnostic check list Sharp recommends before calling for service:
SERVICE CALL CHECK
Please check the following before calling for service:
1. Does the display light up?
2. When the door is opened, does the oven lamp come on?
3. Place one cup of water (approx. 250 ml) in a glass measure in the oven and close the door securely. Oven
lamp should go off if door is closed properly. Press the INSTANT COOK/START pad once.
A. Does the oven lamp come on?
B. Does the cooling fan work?
(Put your hand over the rear ventilation openings.)
C. Does the turntable rotate?
(The turntable can rotate clockwise or counterclockwise. This is quite normal.)
D. After one minute, did an audible signal sound and COOK
indicator go off?
E. Is the water inside the oven hot?
If "NO" is the answer to any of the above questions, please check your wall socket and the fuse in your meter box.
If both the wall socket and the fuse are functioning properly, CONTACT YOUR NEAREST SERVICE CENTRE

DOESNT HEAT UP


If the oven light and carousel lights up when you try to heat water in the oven, then your best bet is the fuse for the microwave oven is open. Unplug the oven, open the case after 30 minutes. Be careful of the capacitors. You will see something like a small plastic casing along one of the wires, usually color white. This can be opened. Usually a spare fuse is alongside, remove the fuse and replace it with exactly the same kind and rating. This fuse is not ordinary. It is about 1/8 inch diameter by 2inches approximately. Be careful that you get exactly the same rating of fuse. When you are done, place the plastic fuse case cover secure in place. Then put back the cover. Be careful that you replace the cover very well back. Be sure that you did not detach the door when you are removing the cover. If you have detached the door, you have a serious problem. Your oven might leak and you will have radiation burns. Place a cup of water inside the oven to test it and run the oven for 30 seconds.

Microwave light and fan run all the time will not shut off When I close the door, the fan comes on and the light stays on, never shuts off. Does not seem to be putting out the microwaves, as a cup of...


That is probably a bad primary interlock (bottom door switch).

See this file for help on checking and replacing door switches.

There should be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, & testing.

Boiling water


This is not unusual, and it can reuslt in a nasty burn.

It may help if you be sure the sides of the container are wet before you heat it.

Also, after heating, if you push the microwave back and forth a little bit before opening the door, that may trigger the outburst in a safer manner.

Even better, if this happens a lot with a certain container, put a wooden (non-metallic) spoon in the container before you heat it.

Here's an interesting article about this from Snopes:

And an advisory from the FDA:
