Supco RO41 no capacitor, I use that on everything with a 95% success. I have used that after a manufacturer relay would not start it and is still running 6 months later.

Range, Oven & Cooktop Repair / How do I safely remove the waveguide cover of my Sharp R-402JK-T microwave ?« Last post by bzz on December 07, 2013, 07:58:34 PM »
I have a Sharp Carousel Microwave Model R-402JK-T.
The microwave recently started sparking at the waveguide cover and a
small dark mark is now on that cover.
I cleaned off the waveguide cover visible to me and so far no more sparking but I want to
replace the cover or at least clean the other side of it and the area
around it. (as mentioned in other postings and articles)
I need first to find out how to remove the waveguide cover safely and properly so as
not to do any damage to where it fits into the microwave or surrounding areas.
And how to do that is not clear to me so far.
I've browsed on the web about it but could not find any information
on how to remove it for my particular model.
1. The waveguide cover for it is OEM part # PCOVPB073MRP0
2. It is held in place under 3 small metal brackets or flanges.
3. I don't know if the brackets are meant to be pried up a bit
so that the cover can slide off, or if the cover is meant to slide
off without needing to lift or pry up those brackets.
4. The cover is not loose in the brackets, so if it does need to be
slid off without needing to pry up the brackets, some amount of force
would be needed. I'd rather not even try that until I can get your feedback.
===> What is the proper way to remove this particular cover for this model ?
Thanks for your help.

Ok. Replaced the water valve three weeks ago. Took this long for it to finally make ice again. And we've made no progress. Still icicles all over the place. Is a new icemaker the only thing left to do?

Do you know how to use a voltmeter?
« Last post by dab147315 on December 07, 2013, 01:42:54 PM »
Also that 48 volts D.C close a set of contacts that can be measure with a voltmeter.You should get Zero volts when relay is closed and 120 volts a/c when open and if you get 120 volts a/c bad relay and this would cause whats happening to you.Motor can cause this also.But like i said i suspect motor but you may want to try this measurement first .http://www.appliancepartspros.com/whirlpool-relay-3405281-ap3037419.html

The motor starts immediately - no hesitation, no noise, no bad smells. It runs continually while the START button is depressed.

Sure did help! Just wanted to verify, as above, that my problem was with the touchpad. Much thanks.
