Question about Sharp R-1500 Microwave Oven
My 2 over-the-range bulbs will not stop burning out. They rarely last more than a month or two. I always stay within the recommended wattage (no more than 30) and I even tried lower 20W bulbs, with no change. Why do these bulbs burn out? Thanks, Fri 805
Are any other bulbs in the home going out prematurely? If so, I would check the actual voltage of your power outlets. If not, the bulbs may be getting grease or debris on them from stovetop cooking. This can cause hot psots and premature failure. I recommend wiping them clean with alcohol on a cloth before installing them. I recommend that folks always have their hood fan on when cooking on the stovetop. Also, you might check with a local home center (Lowe's, Home Depot, etc.) to see if they have some high-quality (non-Chinese) substitutes.
