Question and Answers

Q:

Sharp Microwave Oven Model # R-510EW not working properly

A:

Microwaves contain high-voltage components that can retain a lethal electrical charge of up to 2200 VAC -- even when the microwave is unplugged. Repairs and adjustments, even minor ones such as , can cause microwave leakage. A microwave shielding leakage test should be performed after any microwave service. It is for these safety reasons that we are unable to guide you in microwave repairs and instead recommend scheduling service with a qualified service technician. You can schedule service online with Sears Home Services or by calling 1-800-4-MY-HOME. We thank you for your understanding in this matter and hope we can help you with other questions and repairs in the future. Below is a link to setup service.

Thanks or your reply. However, I think it is BS. I'm already into my microwave, and your shielding leakage test is bogus. Why should I spend the money ($100+) for someone to fix my 11 year old microwave instead of buying a new one for little more. Might be a $10 part...

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

I am sorry, but we do not give repair information on microwave ovens because they are inherently dangerous to service. Microwaves contain high voltage internal components that can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is completely unplugged. Door repairs and adjustments, even minor ones, can cause microwave leakage, and a microwave shielding leakage test must be performed using a survey meter after any microwave service. That's why I strongly warn you to have this repair handled only by a qualified service technician. You can schedule service online with Sears Home Services or by calling 1-800-4-MY-HOME.

Normally at ManageMyLife.com we like to help you with all of your repairs, but our expert advice is that microwaves are just too dangerous. I do agree with you that it will probably be cheaper to replace the microwave rather than repair it. If you would like to browse the newer models, you can click here; Sears .
