Question about Sharp R-1480 Microwave Oven

Open Question

Door opener on sharp carousel does not always work

I have a 2 year old sharp microwave that is built into the cabinet above my oven using the sharp trim kit.
The door opened fine for a year and then started sticking. First time it looked like the door stop was just rubbing on the built in trim kit so I shimmed up the leg and it was ok. After another year it started sticking again and it is not a rubbing problem now. The door open button seems to push the latch up ok, but there does not seem to be anything in the design to push the door open, once the latch is pushed up. Either the plastic has worn off some critical shape on the latch, or maybe the plastic has deformed due the heat it may get from the oven below.

Sounds like an intermittent door switch or a loose door switch mount. Very common.

MODEL R-395Y sharp carousel microwave not working. All power outlets are fine. Please help, cheers lyn


I was unable to locate a service repair manual specific to your microwave; sorry.

You'll must likely have to find a Sharp service and repair center.
I've attached a link that contains the user's manual to your microwave...it has the phone number and address of Sharp; perhaps you can phone them and ask where a repair center is located.

This is the diagnostic check list Sharp recommends before calling for service:
SERVICE CALL CHECK
Please check the following before calling for service:
1. Does the display light up?
2. When the door is opened, does the oven lamp come on?
3. Place one cup of water (approx. 250 ml) in a glass measure in the oven and close the door securely. Oven
lamp should go off if door is closed properly. Press the INSTANT COOK/START pad once.
A. Does the oven lamp come on?
B. Does the cooling fan work?
(Put your hand over the rear ventilation openings.)
C. Does the turntable rotate?
(The turntable can rotate clockwise or counterclockwise. This is quite normal.)
D. After one minute, did an audible signal sound and COOK
indicator go off?
E. Is the water inside the oven hot?
If "NO" is the answer to any of the above questions, please check your wall socket and the fuse in your meter box.
If both the wall socket and the fuse are functioning properly, CONTACT YOUR NEAREST SERVICE CENTRE

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.

My sharp carousel II microwave no longer heats food. Do I need to buy a new one?


The problem maybe the magnetron, or the inverter board if 7 years old or less, and possibly the keypad control board, by the time you add parts and labour cheaper to replace the microwave oven in the long run.

How to remove sharp 1480 microwave from the wall


If this is a built in mounted under an overhead cabinet, Just open the above cabinets and there will be 2 long screws facing downward that hold it in place, if it is a built in that is framed in then you will need to remove the frame and the brackets behind the frame that are holding it in place and then slide it out.

Built-in Sharp Carousel II Microwave Convection Oven died.


There are a couple of safety thermostats in the oven to shut down power if something overheats. One is on the magnetron tube (the microwave source), the other is on the cooking cavity. These sometimes go bad. There's also a power line fuse that may have failed, or become loose in its mounting clips. These can be tested with an ohmmeter; they should all measure very close to zero ohms if they're good.

Another possibility is that the control circuit board in the oven may have failed. I have worked on several Sharp ovens where the power transformer for the board has gone bad for no good reason. If the board goes bad the oven may appear to be dead as well.

Microwave servicing is best left to professionals. If you're thinking of keeping this one, take it to a service shop (or call for home service) and get an estimate. Then decide whether to repair or replace.

Hope this has helped a little. Thanks for using Fixya!
