Question about Sharp R-1500 Microwave Oven
My R-1500 was installed in 2004 and has worked very well; however, the other day the Start/Minuue Plus button quit operating. The only way I can get the unit to operate is to push a knife gently into the bottom edge of the button opening to start the microwave.
I took it apart and used a spring from a pen, in between the button and the metal part that the button touches to start the microwave. I put the spring just above the raised plastic part of the button.
You will see when you take off the panel. very easy. 3 screws on the vent then one for the panel. then mark the wires and unplug.
