That sounds like something that's worth getting a technician to check out. Also to make sure that it will still function as intended

Have you phoned the store where you made the purchase? I would suggest doing that first as your microwave would be under warranty.

R350YW (White)

I'm really struggling with this microwave, whenever I try to heat up a serve of lasagna, I cover the plate with gladwrap and today gave it 1 minute on 2 power and once again the gladwrap ends up melting into the food, I can't tell what is sauce and what is plastic. A cup of milk either scalds or needs a couple of goes, help. I just can't seem to get it right. What am I doing wrong?

Try the "reheat dinner plate" setting and cover with a paper towel, not gladwrap.Perhaps the "reheat soup" setting will help with the milk problem.
Hope this helps.

Okay if I cover with a paper towel then I lose the sauce, the paper towel will soak it up. I did try however putting paper towel over the gladwrap, and did use the dinner plate setting but still had nuked gladwrap.

Why do microwaves need a cooling down time when something is only heated for 10 seconds. It takes 3 times as long to cool down than to heat up. This was never needed tears ago.

Thanks for your question Tess. I don't know. It seems to be something to do with the inverter technology. Although my last Panasonic microwave had inverter technology and it didn't cool down. The Panasonic lasted about 10 years. It still goes, but the door latch broke. A few people on this forum have been complaining about their machines burning. Perhaps the inverter technology gets hot and this is the manufacturer's attempt to avert this.

Hi Tess,

In regards to your question, all Convection and Inverter Microwave Ovens have the cool down function to ensure longevity of the Convection/Inverter components.

I would treat it as a safety feature in that it allows the food to settle a little first before a person takes it out to eat. On a lot of microwave dinners it recommends not pulling away the plastic for a minute or two before opening (don't ask me how I know that) : P

My 1989 sharp carousel still works perfectly but just lately my turn table won't turn. Is there something I can do to fix it? It has moved from country to country and has been good to me. If I was to buy a new one then what size by volume is the same? Mine is about 60cm wide & 38cm high and has pink,blue and grey buttons on the side panel. Everything is original and in good condition with the exception of the outer white coating being yellow, which I guess from the shipping containers and on the inside just bits of paint missing. I must of got the best one on the market back then.

Have you removed the turntable tray?do so-put a cup of water in & start without the turntable.If the center piece moves,problem is because the turntable is not being grasped by the center of the oven.Superglue worked for me for a long time with this problem.
Other reasons-Turntable motor may need replacing especially after years of service.Control panel may be defective.Be sure turntable & wheels are clean.
After 28 years I think a new microwave is needed.
You have the old reliable Sharp-I would by recent experience NOT go there-Harvey Norman treated me well with constant replacement of (3) Sharp no power-whereas other retailers have returned for repairs & you have no oven for weeks.I now have a Panasonic Model Number NN-SF574S & Its terrific-I live in fear of what happened with the Sharp.My Panasonic-Doesnot call me with 5 beeps every few minutes time is finished-Doesnot "cool" for a minute after every use,even if only used 10 secs.Does the job.

Panasonic beeps 5 times at end of cook cycle & shuts up.Cools occasionally & never has excess moisture left dripping inside.Cost--Bargained at $197.00-There's cheaper-but --longevity-ease of use-peace of mind,is worth a little more money.

Thank you. I will try those options first before buying a new one. It still does everything really well except turn. I think if I can fix the turntable then it will last another 28. Years

Why does the Microwave have a 30 Sec instant cook start button like 95 % of micro Wave have just to heat soap or Cereal, 1Min is to long and will almost boil the cereal, I can always press the button twice if I wanted a high powered minute? Very annoying without the 30 sec option

Sharp A.Sharp

Hi Anth,

Thank you for your question. All Sharp Microwaves instant cook settings have been programmed to automatically heat for 1 minute at high. As this is programmed into the microwave, you will need to manually set a time for 30 seconds.

Kind Regards,
Sharp Australia

Can you please tell instructions to change the time from 1 minute to 30 seconds for instant cook setting. I went through manual online and couldn’t figure out that steps involved. Your help would be highly appreciated. Thanks.

Press Info/Timer above the START button & follow the prompts. Sometimes pressing STOP/CLEAR first is a good idea.

I have just purchased this microwave and I think I must be using it incorrectly? The time for cooking different foods seems to quick ? If I put in 90:00 it like its only 9 minutes long and the food is not heating, I think selected "Hard Vegetables" to cook some Broccoli and it came out uncooked.....what am I doing wrong ??

I have just been back to Harvey Norman's where I purchased the microwave and have been told it was "Dead On Arrival" and that is why the timer was not working correctly. They will replace the microwave immediately.

How can I clean the inside of my Microwave oven. The oven usually gets a wipe out after cooking and we try to remember to cover food that could splatter like roasts but after about a year I can see the oven is looking a bit sad. I have read about potions you mix and paste on the oven and leave overnight but I do not want to go down this option because of the holes in the oven surface - I can not see how you can cover the oven with a paste and not get gunk in these holes. HELP please. Sharp Carousel Convection Model R99ok(s)

I use Fridge Vanilla. It leaves a lively smell or just hot soapy water will do the job. I clean up any splatter straight away so it doesn't cook in & get hard.

I previously had a sharp carousel which lasted almost 15 years so decided to purchase the newer model as a replacement. Definitely not the same quality!! I bought the new model 18 months or so ago and noticed a mark inside the panel where the door closes. I thought it was a small paint chip so didn't think too much more about it, but now have noticed it is actually a burn mark and the inside of the door is melting so obviously it's not safe. Also I've noticed sometimes the food comes out super hot and other times it's lukewarm. The door also has a crack in it along the bottom and the top inside panel is blistering. Most disappointed as I was adamant I was buying a superior quality product. Is there any way of getting a replacement?

12 months Manufacturer's Warranty but lot longer under Australian Consumer Laws. If they don't come to the party under reasonable use then contact your state Consumer Authority or ACCC.
