Hi everyone!

Our 3 years old sharp R21JCA suddenly stop working properly. it now runs hot ... to touch on the microwave metal housing cover and inside microwave wall where on the other side the magnetron is hooked up; however, the food stays cold.

I got a vague idea that perhaps the waveguide is defect; it stop the microwaves from passing through and evenly dispersed inside the microwave oven to heat up the food. FYI, i don't see any waveguide cover on my model.

I'd appreciate any input on what's wrong with our unit and how to possibly fix it?

Thank you all for your time! Cheers! R.
