Quite often this is due to grease or food particles stuck to the inside of the oven or stuck on or behind the waveguide cover.

The waveguide cover is usually about the size of a playing card and often held in place by a plastic rivet.

It can be fragile, and the metal edges of the oven behind it can be sharp, so be careful!

The cover and the metal behind it should be cleaned with a mild, non-ammonia cleaner.

If the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

If your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced. It provides important protection for the magnetron.

We have the service manuals for this model and have uploaded them to our site here and here to help you. You will need the free Adobe Reader to view or print them.

The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics.

Sharp microwave makes roaring noise light go on and off when i popped popcorn in bag help


Is it a loud growling noise and it doesn't cook? If so, it's probably a shorted high voltage diode. Secondly, it may be the magnetron. I don't think the popcorn had anything to do with this failure.

When I woke up this morning, the carousel microwave oven light was on, and won't go off. And, none of the start buttons work. Can set time, power level, other settings, but not start!


Thinkind about it, if you open the door, the light is on and you canset time etc but no start function.
Check/replace the door interlock switches as I think there will be a faulty one or the small internal fuse has blown if it has two fuses.
Hope this helps.

Sharp Microwave Oven Model R-403kk-T


Are you talking about the light inside the microwave? The front vent I think will allow you to get to the bulb. Should be a couple of small scrrews holding the vent cover on, remove them take vent off. Start it up again and see if the light bulb wiring or socket is arcing

My Microwave flickers and buzzes


This problem normaly happens when the door is not closed properly for a long time and flashing and buzzing starts to give user a indication for same. Allthough it is not risky as microwave oven has safty door switches wich does not allow oven to operate while door is open. Take care and close the door properly before you leave kitchen..
