Question about Sharp R-315JS 1200 Watts Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Looking for start button for Sharp Microwave R-315JS

The start button on my microwavve has broken; the pin that is pushed when the button is depressed has broken off. I got a replacement from a part distributor but although it was the correct size, color and shape, the pin part was too wide to fit through the casing and slightly off center. Before I order another I would like to find the part number, but when I called Sharp directly they told me they did not have a number for this button, could this be correct? Thanks in advance if you can help!!

The keypad is available separately (you have to peel off the old one and stick the new one on) for about $36 plus shiping. It is also available preassembled with a new control panel frame and display for about $78 plus shipping. They are available from Tritronics at http:www.wehaveparts.com BUT - I would first suspect and check for a failing door switch. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure. I have a text file called "doorsw.txt" which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems, and a file called "safety.txt" which is of vital importance. You can find these files via a Google search. In some cases, the problem is a bad connection or a bad relay on the control board. That's something we see from time to time, and we repair those nationwide, but it's usually a door switch. If you still have a problem, please write back with more detail. Be safe!

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

Let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

It may have an intermittently shorting keypad or another problem on the control panel, which we repair for customers nationwide with our guaranteed $39.95 service.

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The original part number FPNLCB346MRK0 has been replaced by part # FPNLCB346MRK0B and it runs $58.28 plus shipping.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

Sharp R-1510 Start Button Not Working


This may not solve your problem, but on my Sharp R315J microwave, the little plastic pin that pushes forward on the inside of the start button, had broken off and it wouldn't start. The Minute Plus button would start the microwave, so I knew the microwave worked, so I tried to find a piece of plastic that I could glue into the start button hole, because the part doesn't exist and you have to buy the whole door for $100 plus shipping. Nothing I could find was small enough, so I started looking for a new microwave.
While ouside doing lawn work I noticed a small bird tail feather and the end looked to be the perfect size. I snipped off the pointed end and then up about 3/8" to make a little rod to replace the plastic one that broke. It fit perfectly!!! I didn't even have to glue the inside end, it stays put even after repeated door opens. This is sturdy material and looks to last a long time. When it wears out, I have a cat, there's always a few feathers around. I hope this saves someone else a hundred bucks, like it did me.

I have a Sharp model R-315J, 1200 watt counter top microwave. The bulb has burned out and I can't figure out how to get into the unit to change the bulb. Anybody know?


You need to remove the outer cover. The bulb is located on the upper right part of the oven mounted atop an air duct.

We have the service manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

You will need the
free Acrobat Reader to view or print it in case you don't have it already.

Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Push button foe a R-1870F Microwave. Somehow the button slid down in behind the conrols. How do you get it out. It look like some type of spring holds it in place.


You have a broken tab on your door open button (drawing ref. 3-2-4) or a broken door lever (ref # 4-25).

The button is normally held out by the spring.

You can find the entire service manual for the R1870/R1871 at our site here.

You can order Sharp parts from Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com
