We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is a failing electrolytic capacitor on the control circuit board, which we regularly repair 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.

Or if you prefer, you can order and replace the "smart board" yourself.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Every works except it is not heating.


Hello :

It's could be a bad door switch or loose door switch mount . 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 .

That could happen because of slamming the door and not closing it gently .

WARNING : A microwave oven is capable of giving you a serious electrical shock, even when it is unplugged. I strongly recommend you seek the assistance of an appliance repair technician when conducting any microwave oven repair .

good luck .

please rate !

My Cuisinart Microwave's carousel doesn't turn. The heating function works fine. Can this be repaired?


This could be a very simple repair. The carousel is rotated by a small motor located under the bottom panel of the oven. This small motor has a coupler attached to it, that the glass tray sits on. The motor can be accessed by performing the following steps:

1. Unplug the microwave oven and open the oven door. Remove the glass tray.

2. Remove the small coupler by pulling straight up on it.

3. Close the oven door and locate the bottom panel screws UNDER the microwave oven.

4. Remove the screws and the bottom panel will open (some are hinged from the back).

5. Remove the connector plug and mountuing screws to the motor and that's it.

6. Re-install new motor using the steps provided in reverse order.

NOTE: This repair can be performed with the oven in place if it is mounted above a range. No need to uninstall. Just make sure the power is turned off to the unit before servicing anything inside.

Replacement motors can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
appliancepartspros.com
pcappliancerepair.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites offer great service, with competitive pricing, so shop around for the best deal. If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Door Won't Close


What usually breaks is the door open lever.

On a counter top model, the outer cover will need to be removed to diagnose and repair this. On an over-the-range model, only the control panel needs to be removed.

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

Please unplug the oven first.

If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have critical safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

Once it is apart, you'll be able to see how the door open button would press against the door open lever, which would then lift up against the door latch heads (hook-like projections on the door) and the door should open.

You can probably find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number here at the Sears parts site. The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts for most non-Sharp models by entering your full model number here.

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