Question about Sharp R-1610 Microwave Oven
Cooktop is cold but fan will intermittently come on when I close the door even before I select a cook time. Fiddling with the door sometimes will make it stop and operate normally.
Sounds like a door switch problem. Relays can stick too so tap them to release, they may need to be replaced

SOURCE: stops cooking
This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.
This can be caused by slamming the door or by habitually opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

It may be a door switch problem (see this file) or a stuck fan relay on the control circuit board, which we can repair for $39.95 in most cases.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.
