Question about Microwave Ovens

Sharp R308np microwave

I removed the digital display to remove some material, and found bugs inside... eeew. I dropped the display and everything fell apart. So Im not sure how it goes back together, and service manuals on the internet are 20 bucks. anyway, neither the display or the touchpad are working, and im pretty sure I put it back close to what it was. The circuit ribbon is the key, and Im just not sure how it goes in there. Any links to technical manuals or service manuals would be great.

Thanks

To my knowledge your chances of finding any technical info on this unit are slim to none. I would replace it. New ovens are very reasonable and have great features.

The display on our Sharp Microwave oven went very dim. Everything else on it is still functioning perfectly. Will replacing part FPNLCB666WRKZ fix it? Is this something we can safely do ourselves?


not familiar with that exact model .if the display went gradually dim and has a green vacuum florescent display ,these suffer 3 problems ,worn out display ;glass on display and filter window dirty ;and failed capacitors,suggest before replacing module ,unplug and put plug iside door ,then safely remove the back then take photo of display panel wireing then remove it clean inside the plastic eindow of display and display tube glass window .visual look at pcb you will see several round blue capacitors .note the values and voltage of these i.e 470u/25v. go to maplin and obtain replacements ,yhen get a friend who can solder to replace them all making sure to mark pcb with black marker ajacent black negative line on capacitors to ensure correct polarity then refit pannel and test .if no improcement replace complete panell

Why would the high voltage capacitor go bad?


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. High voltage capacitors can and do fail when a microwave is used for long periods of operation, when the unit is operated with no internal load and sometimes for no reason at all other than the capacitor had an internal failure such as corrosion or a break down of the metal strips inside of it where the strips can make contact with the the case. I have been working on microwaves since the 70's and often there is no apparent reason for the failure of the HV cap.. They just sometimes fail.
However...... there is also a power diode in the microwave that is connected directly to one terminal of the HV Cap. If the power diode has failed it can cause subsequent failure of the HV Cap. The Sharp Power diodes can be found here: http://www.repairclinic.com/Sharp-Microwave-Parts?s=t-FH-DZA119WRKZ-%3d%3db113a6c41

You use and ohm meter on resistance to check the diode AFTER removing the terminal of the diode from the capacitor. NOTE: the capacitor must be shorted across the terminals at least 3 times with a screwdriver while holding the handle only to prevent a horrible shock.
Once the diode terminal is disconnected from the HV Cap read resistance in BOTH directions by reversing the test leads on the terminals of the diode. One direction will read resistance and the other direction it will read open / infinity. Any other reading is a failed diode.

You check the capacitor using an analog (scaled vs digital display) ohm meter on R X 1,000 or R X 10,000 and watch for a jump on the meter just as you touch the terminals EACH time you reverse the leads. No jump or... steady resistance = bad Cap.

Sharp Capacitors can be found here:
http://www.repairclinic.com/Sharp-Microwave-Parts?s=t-FH-DZA119WRKZ-%3d%3db113a6c12

Just note that either a CAP or Diode failure can cause the main fuse to blow at the end of the power cord in the fuse holder.

Fuses are normally either 15 or 20 A Slo-Blo fuses and can be found here:

I have a Sharp R1200 Microwave oven and the internal Light bulb burnt out, and the digital LCD does not display all charaters, Is this something a homeowner can repair ? FYI I am very technical so as long...


Hello William,

I see you got back to me and I dowloaded the manual, but not sure how to repair this microwave, the inside light is burned out

and the display numbers do not light up correctly, as if some of the pixels are burn out. So I need to know what I need to replace ( LCD panel)? where is the bulb located and how do you remove and replace it, It should be easy once I know what and where to go

Vibration sound


There are two possible sources; the fan, which may have a loose sleeve bearing (fan must be replaced), or a transformer with loose laminations. The latter is a rare occurrance since most transformers are 'potted' or treated with epoxy resin.  
After pulling the plug, the housing will be fairly easy to remove with a half-dozen or so screws around the edge of the back panel.
If the fan is then accessible, you could block the blades with any insultating material and briefly turn the unit on. Keep fingers clear of ANY part inside; danger of electrocution. If the vibration is missing, then the fan is at fault.
