I have asked the question why do you keep asking the same questions and don't answer the question I'm asking

there is a ceramic safety fuse inside the unit,to access the control panel or to remove it you need to open the case up and remove the outer cover,careful the h.v. capacitor can hold a charge up to 2000 volts if not discharged

I have a sharp r-1460a Carousel Oven...outlet is good but there is no power...not even the clock. I want to replace the fuse first ...I have the control panel loose. where do I find the fuse?

you must be very careful as the result could end up with trip to hospital , 1) the main fuse should be fitted within the plug , 2) there are 2 other quick break fuses sited next to the transformer ,but please be very careful , if you don't know then get some one who does ,

How can I find my fuse on my Sharp Carousel R-1471A

your fuse holder appears to be behind the control panel area. you may be able to just remove the grill above the door and control panel to access the screw that holds the control panel in place, then swing that down and see the fuse and holder.
you may however need to lower the unit from its mounting place to remove the outer cover to access this fuse..
hope this helps,
best of luck,

The auto-touch control panel on our R-307N,R-308N home use carousel microwave will not work. Purchased in june 2008

First of all, since it's new, it's still under warranty.

If you've had it less that 30 days, I would return it to the dealer for a new one.

If it's older than 30 days, I would contact Sharp for service. Let them fix it free!

You can contact Sharp at 1-800-BE-SHARP (1-800-237-4277) or visit them online.

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

Microwave touch pad work light doesn't work

We see this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:
