Tiffany microwave

We have this microwave in our caravan and its taken me about 20 holidays to figure this clock out. So I'm sorry i'm a bit late on this but its taken me until now to figure this out.

Step 1. Press the clock button.
Step 2. Press the cancel button. (the display will return to zero)
Step 3. Enter time using the 1 to 0 numbers.
Step 4. Press the clock button.

Seems so simple now I know how.

sharp microwave 8888 is flashing and I cannot remove

see this steps and fix it. God bless you

Reset the clock. Press "Clock" and the correct time, using the number pads. Press "AM/PM" if applicable, and press "Start" or "Clock" to confirm.

  • 2 Press "Timer On/Off" to reset the timer if nothing on the touch pad will operate. Use the number pads to select a new timed amount, if desired, and press "Timer On/Off" to start. Press again to cancel.
  • 3 Press and hold "Clear/Off" for three seconds if the timer will not function or is blinking when you touch the pads. This will release the "Child Lock" feature. Make a new touch pad selection.
  • 4 Disconnect power to the microwave if following Steps 1 through 3 does not resolve the blinking timer. Wait a few minutes, and then restore power to reset the microwave.

  • However if the problem persist the display board
    main control board is faulty

    I have a whirlpool microwave oven over the range. Model GH 5184xps-4 when I press start, it comes on for one second then it shows a code -F7- and stops


    The microwave oven may be provided with a self diagnostic routine that can be operated

    through the touch pad keyboard. To enter the self-diagnostic routine:

    1.While pressing the CANCEL keypad:
    a) Open the oven door.
    b) Unplug the microwave oven for 2-seconds and plug it back in.
    c) Release the CANCEL keypad and close the oven door. You will see the following display.

    NOTE: The humidity sensor test results will appear on the display after 8-seconds.If the tests are successful, "OK " will be displayed. If one or more of the tests fail, "ERR " will be displayed.. 2.When a keypad is pressed, a number according to the test chart will be displayed. When no keypad is pressed, a blank "O" (square) is displayed...

    Power Failure: After a power failure, the WELCOME screen will be displayed.

    F2 Keyboard Failure: Refer to the Tech Sheet and conduct a touch panel continuity test.
