Tips for a great answer:
Check this against your code, but iff EE is flashing you may have an internal electrical fault that needs to be checked out by a repair person.
Sharp commercial grade microwave codes....
EE Mode Reason Action Required EE 1, EE 2 Magnetron failure
Call for service*
EE 3 Both magnetrons failed Call for service. EE 4 R-23GT, R-24GT and R-25JT only
Voltage too high Follow instructions on page 5 of Operation Manual under VOLTAGE SELECT to change from 208V to 230V. If problem is not corrected, call an electrician. EE 5 R-23GT, R-24GT and R-25JT only
Voltage too low Follow instructions on page 5 of Operation Manual under VOLTAGE SELECT to change from 230V to 208V. If problem is not corrected, call an electrician. EE 6, EE10, EE16 Thermistors failure Call for service. EE 7 Exhaust air temperature too high
Check that nothing is blocking air intake openings on oven back or that oven exterior is very hot. Correct. Wait a few minutes and try again. If problem persists, call for service.
EE 8 Circuit failure Call for service. EE 9 Maximum time is exceeded
Check page 11 in the Operation Manual. Touch STOP/CLEAR pad, and reprogram correctly.
EE 0 Fan lock error Call for service. EE17 Magnetron temperature too high
Touch STOP/CLEAR pad. Wait a few minutes and try again. If problem persists, call for service.
* EE 1 and EE 2: Can continue to use oven before service; however, check food carefully as additional cooking time will be needed.
Any time the EE is flashing, the servicer should be called. When EE is not flashing, check the reason and correct. Service is not necessary.
