That's a UK model.

The solution is to have your control unit repaired. In most cases, a shop will just replace the whole control unit, but they are likely to fail again without our proprietary modifications.

We repair those mostly for US and Canadian customers, but in the UK you can contact Quality Electronic Repairs. I think they repair these.

We occasionally have customers from the UK and Australia send theirs in for repair (not just board replacement) but the extra shipping charges may be a bit much for most customers.

Quite often, a customer will send their old defective board, unit then swap it when we send it back.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

My sisters has a Sharp microwave r-403hw was manufactured july 2003 my question is how long are you allowd to keep a microwave for and if the inside chips from the paint is still ok to cook food in it or...


As long as the microwave oven is working to heat or cook according to the program set , the micro wave can be used safely. Now if there is any chipping of the paint within the oven chamber, then you can re-coat the inside with non conducting ceramic paint.
However if there is no issue if there is no damage to the inside or to the working of the microwave as you can use the oven till it fails to heat.

Sharp R-953M combination oven. Display not working.


We repair those for $39.95 mostly for US and Canadian customers, but in the UK you can contact Quality Electronic Repairs. I think they repair these.

Otherwise, you would have to replace the control unit, which consists of both circuit boards and the display.

LCD display missing part of numerals


Yes, we repair these displays for $32.50 with a one-year guarantee. Repair Clinic charges $169.35 for the display board assembly. Tritronics (our supplier) sells the assembly with display (part # DPWBFC167WRKZ) for $107.07. On the rare occasions when we actually replace that type of board for our customer (at our cost of only $73.33) we also perform our proprietary fixes on it. We do that so the new display does not also fail in a few months, or even right out of the box! That actually happens!
