microwaves are quality appliances, but they can break or
need a replacement part for one of the components.
Many people think that it is easy to just buy a new
microwave. In many cases, this is simply not
true. It can be very easy to repair your Sharp
microwave, oven, cooktop, Sharp range, Sharp range hood
or Steam oven.
working on a sharp microwave - Before touching any
components or wiring, ALWAYS DISCHARGE THE HIGH VOLTAGE
voltage capacitor will quite normally maintain a
painfully high-voltagecharge even
after the oven is unplugged. Some capacitors employ a
bleeder resistor (either externally or internally) that
allows the charge to slowly bleed (or drain) off after
the oven is unplugged. Do not trust a bleeder
resistor--it may be open.
Most Sharp microwave ovens
do not have an
access panel to the light bulb. To change the light
bulb, you must remove the screws on the back of the microwave that hold the outer sleeve in place.
removing the screws, pull upward and back on the sleeve to disengage it
from the chassis. The light bulb should be close to the front of the microwave behind the control panel.
