Sharp Microwave Oven R-1874 Circa 2004 removal

Sharp Microwave Oven R-1874 Circa 2004 removal.

If you ever have a problem with your Sharp Microwave Oven R-1874 Circa 2004 and others, wherein it shuts off after 59 seconds, hereís the fix. The problem is caused by either a defective Damper Door Motor or the Micro Switch that is associated with it. Here is how to replace the motor. The Damper Motor used on the R1874 is P.N. RMOTDA256WRZZ. The switch is P.N. QSWMA085WRE0. The Turntable Motor is P.N. RMOTDA252WRZZ. And the Turntable Support is P.N. FROLPB027MRK0. It has three arms and three wheels. Parts ordered from www.searspartsdirect.com

I just posted pictures with instructions. Here is an example picture, the sequence is 18 pictures if you need them and the irv2 posting gets the order wrong but they are numbered for the right order.

Thanks for the article MrTransistor. Perhaps I'm missing something but would you have a link to the other pictures in this collection? Thanks!

Sorry Driver,

Should have made it a little clearer that the postings were on this web site in the photo section under MrTransistor. Here is a direct link, hope this helps someone.

Mark-

I have the Sharp R1870 in my 2004 Itasca Meridian and am going to have to replace the damper motor and switch to eliminate the 59 second shut-off. Will probably replace the turntable motor at the same time.

All your pictures were very impressive and informative. Can you tell me the best order for removing the holding bolts/screws? On mine there are several screws along the upper rear part of the oven, two bolts straight down from the top just under the shelf board on top of the oven, the two long angled bolts on each side accessible through the filter openings, and then several screws along the underneath side at the back of the oven. I haven't been able to tell which ones to start with first and which ones to be left till the very last when it will start dropping.

Thanks for being there with all your help for us novices. Nothing works like previous experience.

Hello Wagonmaster2,

Similar mounting scheme for a different coach. I just reviewed the parts breakdown for your coach and my recommendation is to start with the two or three screws that hold the unit at the bottom rear. Next, unscrew the two long anchor bolts located under the filters. Then, after supporting the microwave, remove the screws at the top of the front bracket allowing the microwave to tip forward and down hinging on the rear bottom lip. No need to unscrew the small L bracket that is attached to the underside of the cabinet. See http://www.winnebagoind.com/service/...04/4ikp36g.pdf page 14 item 2 (PDF page numbers).

The pictures in the photo section are titled in correct order but displayed out of order. When I posted them, they were in order but when it was all done, they got scrambled i.e. the site software placed pictures 17 & 18 in front of 15 & 16 and 2 & 3 ahead of 4 & 1. Roll your curser over each image and the name with number will be displayed. Perhaps the web-master can look into this.

The first four images show the Turn Table motor, and image 18 is just the schematic. If you view the other images, there will be a description of whatís going on under the image. Download all the images and let your explorer sort them into proper order. Then look through them in order and it may make more sense. The descriptions should help a lot.

Let me know if there are any other specifics I can help with. Are you going to order through www.searspartsdirect.com ? I found them to be quite reasonable on price, easy to use, and fairly expeditious on delivery. I know the switch is cheap but you could save a little money by just cleaning the contacts. It comes apart way too easily. In fact it may fall apart as you remove it if you are not careful. The contacts pop out and can be rubbed against a paper towel laid on the edge of a table. Makes more sense when you see it.

The parts list shows a Sharp R-1875 installed in your coach. I think all of these units are essentially the same: the R-1870, R-1874, and the R-1875. I may look into the differences.

Hi Mark -

Appreciate the removal explanation, it's always great to have the experience of someone who has done a project and knowing the best sequence of events.

I ordered the damper motor from Encompass last fall and never pulled the oven while we were using it and now decided to go ahead and get the turntable motor to have it replaced at the same time. The back yard where the MH is parked has been so messy with all the rain and snow I'm waiting for things to clear up before having the Tech come out to get the oven (and help me remove it as I have to much back trouble to try it by myself).

Before I ordered the TT motor I was reading about problems people were having with Encompass since they ship from Baldwin Electronics in Florida, which don't appear to be very customer oriented. I had received the TT motor from AMI Resources before you suggested Sears, and its amazing how many different parts numbers there are for this motor. AMI shipped a motor no. RMOTDA211WREO, which is the same number Sears listed when I put in my oven Model No. (and cheaper than AMI - I'll know better next time), but when I put in a part no. search for 252WRZZ at Sears I got a substitute No. 264WRZZ. Partstore.com also listed 264WRZZ for my oven. I called the lady at AMI who took my original order and asked how or why there were several numbers for the same part for the same oven. She kind of laughed and said she was doing a little research on this very matter and had discovered 14 different part numbers for this same motor depending on who manufactured it, where it was actually used and which make/model it was used in. I know the Sharp Model 1870, 1874, etc are all the same oven, just either black or chrome finish but they must list different part numbers for the same part.
I sure hope when mine is removed it will be the same as the one I received.

Thanks again for all the great help, I don't know if the Tech has removed any of these ovens before but he says he works on lots of different types of microwaves. He's worked on my TVs for years and is very trustworthy and knowledgable so I trust whatever he says.

Mr. Transistor,
Beautiful detail on microwave removal. I wish I had seen your photos before I removed my microwave and replaced the damper motor.

Sharp Microwave R-1874

2005 Itasca Meridian. I'm having a problem with the microwave. Everything works fine except when I try to heat something using microwave. The lights are on, the fans work, the convection oven works, but the microwave doesn't. Here's the bigger problem; I have had it removed twice, taken to a Sharp Service Center in Phoenix, and it works just fine sitting on their bench! Re-install it in the motor home and it doesn't work!! I've checked the plug and it is fine. This has been going on for a month; we haven't moved from our original site so travel isn't the problem. I went to the shop yesterday, put a cup of water in it, and it worked just fine. They re-installed it in the motor home this morning and it doesn't work!!! Going nuts; can anybody help?????

You might try these people. all Microwave Display Repair Sharp Dacor GE General Electric

They fixed my microwave control panel and I did not have to remove the unit from the RV. Got instructions for removing the control panel only.

TN Bill, Thanks for the info; good website. Problem is both appliance repairmen have said they checked the control panel and found no problems. You would think they know what they are doing but the darn thing still doesn't work.

Hi Broadaway,

Intriguing. Best guess would be that the outlet for the microwave is wired wrong, i.e. the neutral is connected to the hot blade and vice versa. Thatís the best I can think of for working at the shop and not in the RV. Using a meter, measure the voltage between the large blade (neutral) of the outlet and the round ground pin. If you read less than 1 Volt, it should be wired correctly. But if you read 120 Volts, it is definitely wired wrong. This should be easy to correct.

Now the other issue would be an open ground. This is usually seen as a voltage higher than 1 Volt between neutral and ground. If you suspect a problem, youíll need to ohm out the ground wire. Using longer meter leads if required, ohm between the ground of the microwave outlet and the ground of an outlet on the opposite wall. Real world readings will probably be around 1 or 2 ohms. If itís open or has a high reading then it must be corrected. Good luck!

I have actually plugged the microwave into a different plug with the same results. Also, everything works except the microwave portion; convection, fans, lights, clock, etc. The microwave has worked fine for almost two years since I bought the rv and has just started giving me problems the past few months.

The ghost of Christmas past? What voltage do you read Ďat the plugí when you: turn on the microwave, use the convection oven, and in standby. If you had an O-Scope, I would be curious as to what happens to the sine wave under these conditions also. Something has changed, probably not intentional, that is affecting your RVís outlets or possibly the whole park or house or wherever you are parked. To see if itís internal to your RV, try running a heavy extension cord to the pedestal to connect directly bypassing the coaches wiring. Let us know what you find.

Undoubtedly these Sharp microwave ovens must really be dogs. I've read about so many problems with them on the Forums, along with my problem of it only running 58 seconds before shutting off. Guess that's better than not working at all though.
