    I had the same problem a few months ago - and I paid to have it repaired. It was the microswitch that needed to be replaced. The part was $12 but the labor was a fortune. Now it's 3 mos. later and the problem has returned. Really upsetting!

    Anyway I'm thinking that there is an UNDERLYING FLAW in this oven for this switch to go bad again. This oven is only 2 yrs. old. I'll never buy anything Sharp again. But for now I'm going to replace the switch myself this time.

    Just for the record the repair person warrantied his work for 3mos. and it went bad 5 days after the warranty was up and he didn't want to help at all!

My microwave stopped working you can input time but when you push start nothing happens it has power and everything just will not start its like the start button does not work

Possibly a bad door switch behind the holes where the latch hooks go into. Usually with the bad switch the timer counts down but nothing runs. It all depends on which switch is bad. Usually 3 switches inside.

Sharp Carousel R530BK microwave won't cook unless light pressure is kept on the door button.

There are door switches and one of them is evidently out of adjustment or the little actuator arm on it is.

Lights up counts down and thats it no fan no spin no heating

I believe that there are to fuses inside this unit. One feeds the electronic components and the other feeds the turntable and the magnitron. Un plug the unit and check both fuses, you might get away with this cheaply. Please let me know if this helps. P.S. if one of the fuses continues to blow its time to get rid of the unit, because if they go bad they get stronger and very dangerous. What normally would boil water at 3 minutes could change to 45 seconds. Be careful.
