Microwave question


I have a 5 year old Sharp microwave and the turntable stopped spinning.. So i started to unscrewed the bottom screws.. While unscrewing I realised it actually has a easy access drawer but there were 4 screws in the middle which was holding something in place inside.. But now I am unable to find the part to screw it back.. Its hiding inside whatever it was.. I was wandering.. Can I start the microwave without finding what it these 4 screws were catching? Thanks

Re: Microwave question


Check the internet for maintenance instructions and diagrams for your product model. Microwave's can be very dangerous due to the high voltage capacitor. There isn't a lot of info about doing maintenance because of this, but info is available. It's a good idea to understand what you are dealing with before you venture inside.

Re: Microwave question


I guess I would not try operating it untill I knew it was safe.

Maybe have to get an actual appliance specialist on it......I don't think we have an actual specialist on here.

I generally will fix most appliances washer/dryer/DW/refrig/stove....but I'm chicken-chit to work on the micro.....too much electronic for me to understand and it involves some high charged capacitors and a magnetron.

Microwave question


You took out the four screws that are holding the transformer in place. Yes it will operate. I wonít go as far as saying itís safe. Itís the heaviest part of the machine so I donít expect you would have any vibrations. Might be best to take it down and put them back
