My fantastic Sharp R24STM microwave has just stopped

This answer was rated:

My fantastic Sharp R24STM microwave has just stopped working. Web advice suggests internal fuse but not advised to explore it myself as non-expert. What can I do to avoid scrapping it?
JA: How old is your Sharp microwave?
Customer: i guess at least 15 yrs
JA: How long has this been going on with your Sharp microwave? What have you tried so far?
Customer: it has been fine till 3 days ago, worked one day, next completely dead. Not plug fuse.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: No thanks.

Good morning,

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your appliance today.

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with your appliance.

I understand how frustrating that can be.

Is it completely dead ?

Customer: replied 8 days ago.

OK, I am afraid the control board and/or the fuse is faulty and will need replacement.

I am not sure however, you may contact Sharp and see if they can provide some kind of exchange offer on this Microwave.
