Question about Sharp R-314FS Microwave Oven

1 Answer

The Display is Dim. Hard to read the numbers.

I am working on my Sharp microwave, model R-314FS. The microwave still functions, but the backlighting (LED's) on the control board no longer light up and therefore don't project through the front panel.

I tested the LED's with a meter and they appear to be good.

Has anyone had these go out before? Microwave is about 7 years old at this point, but not worth tossing in the trash.

Thanks... Don

I have the same model and problem. The time display is totally unreadable. Looking for a solution as well. I suspect given the cost (I believe around $60), it's time for a new one. Anyone have any suggestions or easy repair ideas?

Many parts for this model are long since no longer available, but many generic parts are available.

Chances are your control circuit board needs repair. After all these years, the electrolytic capacitors dry internally and that can cause bizarre symptoms.

I can repair your board, normally for $54.95, which includes insured return shipping, but if your membrane keypad is bad, it cannot be repaired.

For details and more free DIY and other help & advice, feel free to contact me directly.

Please include FULL model number*, FCC ID number*, + detailed symptom information.

The control panel of my sharp grill 2 convection microwave oven is very dim


Hi,
Dimmed light might be caused by a slight contact between the panel's connector and the mainboard. Or, there is a dimmer option (feature) in the menu. Depends on model. Some of Panasonic microwave ovens are equipped with such a feature.
Regards,
Dan

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

I have a 12yo Sharp r-430cs microwave. The LED is not displaying all the "lights" in the numbers/alpha readouts. It is missing a lot more of the readout than it is showing. Everything else is working


Go to Sharp's website and check availability of the clock/timer readout board. Being that old you may not be successful, but it;s worth a try.

The bulbs under the microwave for the work space do not work.


On a sharp R-1480, they use a solid state IC on the control board to switch the night/work lights on and off. These IC's can burn up and quit working, or short out and not turn the lights off. I replaced several of these boards close to twenty years ago but I never saw one that was anywhere near close to being a fire hazard. I'm sure that these boards are no longer available.....

The control display on my microwave is very dim. Is there any way to make it brighter?


If you had mentioned your full model number, we could have looked whether the VFD is available as a separate part in case your model has a VFD display, or whether the whole control board would have to be replaced.

If your model has an LCD type display, it may be weak LEDs or other failing components in the display backlight circuit.

We regularly repair microwave displays for $39.95 nationwide.

It's pretty rare for a microwave to have a display brightness feature.

Let us know if we can help you further.

Looks like you just have to take off the outer cover. From the parts diagram I looked at this looks like a counter top unit. If so, unplug the unit and then remove the outer cover and then locate the lamp and replace it. Looks pretty easy to get to.
