The coupler just slips onto the turntable motor but they can be hard to remove. Try prying from opposite sides of the coupler but be careful not to damage the area around the coupler.

Sounds like a broken touch panel. Many of the pads are connected in a line and if a trace breaks you lose all the pads ran on that common trace. Are you looking to repair this your self? If not, you will need to find someone who services sharp or carries parts for them in your area

Changing the light bulb on your Sharp carousel microwave will allow you to have needed light inside the oven. Microwaves are not designed for consumers to change the light bulb due to manufacturer liability, but it can be done. Following the proper steps will ensure a successful installation. Step 1 Unplug the Sharp carousel microwave from the electrical outlet.
Step 2 Locate the screws around the outer cover of the Sharp carousel microwave and unscrew all the screws.
Step 3 Lift off the covering.
Step 4 Locate the bulb and unscrew. Screw in your new bulb.
Step 5 Replace the cover and screw back tightly. Once done, test your new bulb.

Before you invest too much time, look and see if the touch pad is still available. Sharp is pretty quick to discontinue parts right after about 5 years. There is a place called encompass parts. They are a distributer for Sharp, you micght check with them.

check the relays on the PCB, don't do it on the board but remove them outside and check properly.

Timer section is fubar. Reset the electronics to factory defaults and see if that cures the issue. If not, the timer section needs to be replaced.

You need to know why the fuse blew first. two places that will cause the fuse to blow is excessive current being drawn from a shorted winding in the transformer or a bad magnetron unit. If the holder is loose, pinch the metal parts that contact the end of the fuse slightly to restore proper contact with the fuse.

On/off circuit is bogus. Check for a frozen switch in the on position.

Call the manufacturer about resetting the electronics. If not possible the board needs to be replaced if the price is right.

How do you know how much electricity it is using??? Is it actually working and heating as it should??

I believe you mean wave guide cover. Are you talking about a silver looking square or rectangle cover, typically held in place with 1-2 screws?? If so that is a wave guide cover. You must keep them clean and dry. Clean off any food splatter promptly and clean with a damp scrubby sponge. do not saturate. Try to keep dry. Sharp's distributor is a company called Encompass parts. you would need your model number.

Also the fact it is a convection oven could mean the oven temperature sensor is not picking up the oven temp. it is not telling the machine it is there by the board seeing its resistance, the unit will shut off as a safety feature. The oven sees temperature by reading the value of a temperature dependent resistor. As the temperature changes so does the value of the component ( oven temp sensor) that way the unit determines the temperature inside the unit. Sometimes those sensors will break since they are in the area with the heat and moisture, they get old and break.

I am not positive about this specific model but on a good amount of the Sharps I have worked on in the past they typicall have long screws that go from the top front of the units to the back of the unit where they screw into the plate mounted to the wall. If you remove the plastic vent along the top front of the unit above the door a lot of the time you will find screws there that you loosen to lay the machine toward you and then you have to lift it off of the bracket and take it out. Good Luck
