    I have a Sharp Carousel microwave, about 2 months old. Last night I heated up some milk before sleeping and it worked perfectly fine. This morning when I woke up, it was dead! No clock function, nothing. I checked everything and it looks fine!

    Any ideas?

Chances are the thermal cutout (thermal fuse) on the magnetron opened up. It may or may not also indicate a bad magnetron. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Yes your oven's controller is probably malfunctioning you need to replace the SYSTEM BOARD but I personally suggest to buy an other oven.... the system board will be hard to find and expensive...

See if other electronics is acting funny since the power loss... you could CLAIM the damage from the insurance company

Good luck!!

Sharp microwave stopped working

Is it totally dead? No display? Or just does not cook? If it made an unusual noise before it 'died' something probably shorted out.... You need an ohm meter to troubleshoot. If the fuse is open, switches and HV circuit need to be checked before replacing fuse. Sometimes on the convection Microwaves (not just Sharp) the fuse will 'rust' and open rather than blow. Or the fuse holder can over heat and fail.
