Good thing I was nearby waiting

  • Summary: This is actually for the Sharp R-408LS 1.4 cubic feet Microwave Oven. This morning when reheating a ceramic cup of coffee (after 15 seconds) I heard a spark and saw an arc in the microwave. I stopped the microwave by 20 seconds and unplugged it and noted that the right side wall melted through.

died after a year and a half

  • Summary: At first this was a very good microwave. Then after six or eight months, the touch pad showed noticeable fraying...but still not a big deal. Recently though, it started to spark when turned on, and the problem was with a plate on the right inside wall.

Sharp Microwave Failed after 3 years

LacrosseD "LacrosseD", Amazon
5 September 2013
  • Summary: We just had the same experience as some of the other reviews on here. The right side panel shot sparks and flame. This micro worked well but failed WAY too early and it seems there is a design fault. It is not in stock right now, hopefully because they stopped making them.

I returned it

  • Summary: I liked the buttons on this microwave. I hate ovens that have hot dogs, popcorn, and pizza as the only shortcut buttons. However.... I bought this microwave to go in a studio appartment that would be used frequently by different people so I need an oven that is pretty self explanatory.

Dead at 4 months.

David B. Lewis "Weej", Amazon
10 March 2012
  • Summary: This is our third Sharp microwave in 5 years and it will be our last. The previous one started shooting sparks and while Sharp would warranty the parts at 3 years, they wouldn't warranty the labor, so we opted for a new one.

Great mid-size microwave.

eastmared, Amazon
17 February 2012
  • Summary: Display is bright,easy to read and simple to use. Sharp's 1.4 cubic foot capacity provides much more interior space than other brand's 1.2 cubic foot models. This unit replaces an older Sharp that we have used extensively for 6 years.

Lasted about 14 months

slamfirst, Amazon

  • Summary: Wasn't a fan of this microwave when it worked. It cooked very unevenly. Sad to say but I was actually relieved when it died after a little over a year. I was happy to buy a new one which should tell you all you need to know.

good basic microwave

  • Summary: The purchase of this Sharp microwave was to replace a similar model that no longer worked after several years of good service. We are very pleased with the functionality and the look of the unit.
