Question about Sharp R-1502 Microwave Oven
I have a 5 year old Sharp R-1502 OTR that the start button failed. I took off the cover and discovered that the start button has broken away from the plastic frame that holds it in.
Also I discovered that on the start “square” on the board (circuit board?) does not work. All others appear to be working fine.
Are there replacement cover and board available? I do have photos of the parts mentioned above.
You have to be sure the door switch connector is plugged into the board or it will not Start.
