Question about Sharp R-530ES Microwave Oven

Tricky touch pad on Sharp R530 es microwave oven

This microwave oven is slightly over 1 year.

Touch pad was not responsive to begin with, getting worse over time. In the beginning, I have to push very hard to get response on a few buttons. Then the number "0", "stop/clear and "minute plus" buttons stopped working completely about 5 months ago, and I just worked around it by pushing "1-1-1" instead of 1 min.

Today, it simply stopped working after I gently cleaned its interior with a damp cloth. (i unplugged the power cord first). It keeps blinking "8888" after plugged in again, and I can't get any response from any button.

There are two options here:

1. Order a new control panel frame which has the keypad, trim piece and door button already installed and swap your control boards into it.

The original part number FPNLCB346MRK0 has been replaced by part # FPNLCB346MRK0B and it runs $58.28 plus shipping.

2. Disassemble your control panel frame, peel off the old keypad and stick a new one on.

Even though the keypad alone runs only $35.66, this job takes a lot of time and labor.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace just the keypad yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

Whichever option you choose, we have the service manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

Touch screen is lighted. No response to touch.


The touch pads are a common fault on microwave ovens they go out for a variety of reasons but mostly due to moisture getting inside the pad. These can be replaced pretty reasonable and are not that hard to do. You can google your make and model and find a touch pad or get one from your local parts supplier. Whn you replace it make sure you never use any liquid or spray on the front of the oven, it will slip through the cracks and ruin things. You might also take the unit aprt and look for a fuse, some models have them and others don't. If there is one it will be inside the door next to the touch pad.

Sharp-R9h84b Pad Numbers


I'm sorry to tell you, but your keypad is failing and the supplies of membrane keypads for these models were exhausted years ago and they're no longer available.

As great as these old workhorses were, once they become unusable or unreliable, they will have to be retired.

Please don't kill the messenger! *grin*

Sharp Carousel Convection Oven. Model R-9H54.touch pad


It depends on what you mean by "a problem with the touch pad assembly".

If some or all keys do not respond, you would probably need a new keypad, but the key units for all Sharp R-9H-series models have been unavailable for a few years now.

These units did indeed last a long time.

Sorry I can't bring better news.
