My microwave all but caught on fire last night, same model R-308JW-F, manufactured May 2005, while cooking 3 potatoes. Just reported it to Sharp, doubt they'll answer or do anything. I can't see any physical damage (without opening it up), but it smells of strongly of electrical fire, and is now totally dead.
Well, Sharp did contact me, but since it's out of warranty, they just directed me to a local repair shop, which would cost me to have it fixed or looked at. So since I've already replaced it, not doing anything else about it.
