Question about Sharp R-308H Microwave Oven
The light comes on, the timer works, but the microwave doesn't work - i.e. turntable doesn't turn, doesn't heat, no noise from microwave.
If still under warranty or if you have no electronic repair experience you should take the set back to the shop or to a repair person. Some of the solutions described below can be dangerous, TV's are very hazardous to service. Even when plugged out, TV's can store very high voltages. If you hear an unusual buzzing noise, the magnetron (the component that actually generates the microwaves) or other electronic module may be broken. If you hear nothing, you might have a defective transistor on the main printed circuit board. This is not easily fixed; contact a service technician. You can try the "find a microwave repair..." link from the product page. Good luck!
