We were excited to receive our new Sharp microwave drawer. Unfortunately, it arrived broken and we cannot reach anyone at Sharp to help us fix the problem. I've called daily for the last 4 days and have gotten one email with the message that the issue is "being reviewed". When I have connected to someone, it's been an operator in another country with a TERRIBLE phone connection or headset so scratchy, I can't hear/understand them. No matter because when I HAVE been able to talk to someone, they have no idea how to help or answer any of my questions, saying "Someone will get back to you" -- only to have me wait, never getting a call or an answer.
The company is AWFUL. And the drawer sucks. It would have been MUCH better to just use our old inexpensive countertop microwave. What a waste of money!!! And such an unprofessional, terrible company to try and deal with. I absolutely do NOT recommend buying ANY product from Sharp. I know we will avoid them at all costs. It's just not worth the headache. TERRIBLE!!!
I do not have enough electrical power for the larger microwave that I would like to have as I cook a lot and could really benefit from a larger model. I am a senior citizen on a very fixed income and therefore cannot afford to have my home rewired at this particular time.

Microwave starts on its own and doesn’t shut off. Manufacturers was contacted about the defect and offered $40 off to buy another fire hazard instead of replacing the microwave. DON'T WASTE YOUR SAFETY.
I purchase this Sharp carousel microwave in 2019, yesterday popping popcorn, it have been making noise and sparks before but it stopped, I ignored it because it did not do it all the time. Yesterday popping popcorn there sparks, smoke, then fire in microwave. I am glad I was still in kitchen when it happened. Was it a recall on this model SMC1131C.
We just purchased this microwave and found that the instructions for setting the power level are incomplete. There is no mention that you have to set the cooking time before setting the power level. Otherwise, the microwave is great so far. It is attractive, is just the right size for the space in which it is used and cooks well. My mother had a Sharp microwave for over 25 years and it worked perfectly every time.
I bought this Carousel Microwave oven New in 1983. It has the Temp Probe/Sensor. Everything on it still works. I have changed the light bulb twice in it. The best appliance I ever bought. When I bought it I was just starting in the USAF. This microwave has stood up to numerous moves. I feel it deserves a craftsmanship award. If Sharp ever makes another one like this, I would love to have one.
When we moved to our new residence in 2010, we needed a microwave. I got in my car and drove to the closest department store, which happened to be Target, and they have one on a clearance sale; a Sharp 1200 watts microwave, Model No. R-520KS-T. I hesitated some before purchasing it because I was afraid it wouldn't last but we were in a budget and needed a microwave right away, so I took the chance and bought it. This was 10 years ago, and since then, it has worked without any issues. In 2018, my wife and I decided to upgrade all our kitchen appliances, including the microwave.
The price for the new microwave was over $900 more than the Sharp microwave. We had built a patio addition to the house and decided to keep the Sharp microwave for the occasional outdoor cooking. On December 2020, the new microwave broke down, so while waiting for it to be repaired we brought the older Sharp microwave back into the kitchen. It still works as the same day it was purchased, no issues and we love it more than ever. We are still waiting for the manufacture of the newer microwave to get it repaired, while in the meantime our beloved Sharp microwave still kicking and cooking those occasional quick meals without any issues whatsoever.
I had a Sharp Microwave for years. Recently bought a new one 05/2020 and when I took out of the box and plugged in the light did not work, bought it from Best Buy during our Pandemic. Was told by Best Buy to bring it back in to be serviced, I kept it and dealt with the light not working. Then 3 months ago the plastic is coming away from the microwave just pulling back away near the handle. I was told by Sharp nothing they could do. Not under warranty. I have to throw this new microwave in the trash because no one can help me and someone in my family will be cut by this piece protruding plastic/metal. I will never ever buy Sharp again. It is not what it use to be. Buyers beware!
Purchased the Sharp microwave oven over 15 years ago. It has a turntable with glass plater. Fits on top of my small cabinet in the kitchen. I have used this oven every day that I have owned it. Three levels to cook, has specialty buttons (melt, soften, thaw, popcorn)....you get the idea. This machine is good sized, although I haven't cooked anything large in it. Just two of us. I never expected it to last this long, but it is still going strong with no problems ever. If I ever have to replace, it will be with another Sharp.
Sharp microwave carousels last usually at least 10 years and they heat evenly and good. All the microwave manufacturers need to add welded handles like a lunch box type to the tops of the microwaves to make it easier to carry and I hate having to touch the metal on the bottom of the microwave. I have used other brands at work and college etc and I don't think sharp is the best one and I will be looking for one that is easier to move around.
