The problem is most likely caused by a defective door switch, and should be rectified for safety reasons.

If you know DMM then only you can fix it. Check magnetron continuity and the transformer continuity. Mostly magnetron blows up. Danger microwave has 5000 volts in it Thanks Discharge capacitors

Sharp microwave door will not shut and the oven light stays on continuously.


The door has a switch , probably two, that engage and disengage when opening or closing. ( a failsafe so it switches off ) when you open the door, this is the problem also like a fridge the light should go off when door is shut, it may just be stuck but Dont mess with it , clean it if its got food stuff , a mild detergent round door etc , otherwise just change microwave ,

My microwave starts however food does not heat up.


Micro wave as the name suggests produces heat when the micro waves aimed at an object causes the water molecules inside the object to vibrate hence producing heat.The gadget responsible is the magnetron. If your magnetron is not receiving ht voltage or receiving but faulty, then your micro wave wont work please take precaution when opening micro wave due to high voltage caps that remain charged sometimes even when it is off.check the high voltage fuse/ diode and capacitor if they are fine and the step up trans former o.k then the only option is to replace the magnetron

Microwave lights up but does not heat or turn table when start button is pushed


Check your door interlock switch. Unplug the device, remove the cover DO NOT TOUCH THE SILVER CAN - POTENTIALLY LETHAL. Locate the small, probably black micro switch. Test it with a volt/ohm meter or other contunity tester. It should read "closed" when the door is closed and "open" when the door is open.

If you are like me, you turn the machine off by opening the door. When you do this, power sparks between the small contacts in the micro switch and eventually burns them up. When this happens, the machine thinks the door is open and will not turn on the magnatron - thus - no heat.

Find a replacement switch at a electronics or appliance parts place. You may have to provide make and model for an exact replacement. If you are handy, you can adapt any regular micro switch.

Let me know if this works for you.

Turntable continues to rotate.


I would say you have a failing door switch or the mount which holds your door switch is loose or broken. In most designs, it is the upper door switch that will produce these very symptoms when it is intermittent or its mount is broken or loose. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure. Slamming the door, damage during shipping or transportation and sloppy manufacturing techniques or materials are the primary causes of trouble with the door switch mounts. I have a text file called "doorsw.txt" which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems, and a file called "safety.txt" which is of vital importance. You can find these files via a Yahoo search. In some cases, the problem is a bad connection or a bad relay on the control board. That's something we see from time to time, and we repair those nationwide, but it's usually a door switch. If you still have a problem, please post again. Be safe!
