    I have an old Sharp R1471 microwave that just stopped working the other day. The lights, fan, everything stopped. We checked the circuit breaker downstairs and it looks fine? Any ideas?

    Fuse or thermal fuse inside the microwave?
    Take the cover off (WITH UNIT UNPLUGGED), and take a look.

    With the additional warning of DO NOT touch anything inside! Microwaves are potentially lethal even with power removed. Since you're here asking for help you likely don't know the dangers of the capacitor within a microwave.

    I second that!

    Microwave ovens can be deadly even with the power removed.

    Even if you're touching nothing. Keep your left hand firmly in your pocket at all times when the cover is off. (It's not as silly as it sounds)

    OK. I assumed Jen110 would know how to identify a fuse.
    Nobody here wants to see anybody get hurt over a dead microwave.
    If you're unfamiliar with electronic components, it's best not to try to fix it yourself.
