Question about Sharp R-9H66 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

I need to replace the monitor switch on my Sharp R-9H66, I'm not a 100% sure which switch it is. The diagram on the microwave shows it in the middle but the part that is being sent to me looks a little bigger than what is in there. I have had no luck finding a schematic or picture of inside of my microwave. Any suggestions?

This model is obsolete, so information is hard to find.

Until the keypad (which is no longer available) finally fails, though, it's worth replacing other parts.

These were great old units.

The monitor switch will usually be in the middle near the fuse.

Assuming there is not a lever on your monitor switch, a universal type will do.

If there's a lever, you may need to break the old switch apart and move the lever to the new switch. See this video for instructions.

How to fix loud hum and no heating in Sharp model R-308KW?


Hi,
There could be a variety of reasons why this happens, but the likeliest
reason is the secondary interlock or monitor switch is broken. These are micro switches that tell the microwave that the door is closed. If this switch is broken, then the microwave thinks the door is still open and the carousel table won't turn, and the oven will not heat up.
I replaced an interlock switch last Saturday. The switch was $7.00 and took me an hour.
Ask your local repair person to test the interlock and monitor switches first, then go from there.
Good luck,
Hank

R-820js wont heat


see this causes and fix it .God bless you
f the microwave will not work at all, make sure power is on at the outlet and test the electrical cord. Test the fuse and replace it if it is faulty. Also check the door to make sure it closes properly. Test and, if needed, replace the fan. If the oven doesn't cook or cooks only intermittently but the display is on, check the door interlock switch, the thermal cutout (see the Applaince Controls Fix-It Guide), and the fan, replacing parts that don't pass the test.
If the oven keeps blowing fuses, check for a faulty door interlock or monitor switch.

Where is the monitor switch located on a sharp carousel R-4X06 microwave?


Hi, if this unit is over the stove it has to come down. Table top, case has to come off. The monitor switch is a microswitch that is part of the door switches. PLEASE UNPLUG YOUR UNIT BEFORE WORKING ON IT. When you get it opened up, there's probably a diagram that will let you know which switch it is. Lookd it up and does list a monitor switch with fuse, but would not give me a part number. Hope this helps

Had problem with Sharp R-520L. Microwave suddenly


One of the door switches is the problem. Open the casing, and you should find the schematic diagram. Find the switches, and test if you can. If you cannot - replace all of them except the monitor switch.

Where is the monitor switch on a sharp r-1471


You can check the protection diode fitted across the highvoltage capacitor near to the Highvoltage transformer. If it is shorted there is a chance to blow off the fuse. There is no chance for the monitor switch. Any way you can check the monitor switch which is located near to the control panel( Near the door switch)

Monitor fuse blows when unit is turned on. I tested the door sensing switch,secondary interlock switch and the monitor switch all tested o.k. is there something else that could blow this fuse?


You probably have a shorted High Voltage Capacitor. Be sure to short across the terminals before you put your ohm meter leads to it....... obviously, if it's shorted already.....no problem........

Monitor Switch Part Number?


They might be referring to a diode connected to the big silver capicitor and screwed to the case.
These can go short circuit causing the fuse to fail.

Location of monitor switch for Sharp R-5A54B microwave


It's usually the one in the center, as opposed to the being near the top or bottom edge of the door.

The entire service manual is available for free download on the Sears parts site (page by page) at http://www3.sears.com/ (the 3 is correct)

Just look for the switch as ref # 1-7 on this diagram:
