Question about Sharp R-1405 / R-140 Microwave Oven
I changed the bulbs on the microwave, and after turning the light on, they will not turn off. Is this a board issue?
Yes. We regularly repair these control units for
customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week with a one-year guarantee.
At our site, we now have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.
This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.
Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your model number) for more information & help.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
