Question about Emerson MW8108P Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Microwave Keypad Is Hot

Sharp microwave two years old. Two days ago I noticed that the numeric portion of the keypad is hot to the touch. Not warm, hot, not hot enough to burn, but hot enough to be very noticeable. I unplugged the microwave overnight and the next morning I used the microwave immediately after plugging it in. This evening after the microwave had been on all day, the keypad is again hot. Is this dangerous? Should I just replace this oven? Thanks.

My sharp carousel II microwave no longer heats food. Do I need to buy a new one?

The problem maybe the magnetron, or the inverter board if 7 years old or less, and possibly the keypad control board, by the time you add parts and labour cheaper to replace the microwave oven in the long run.

Sharp r-610dk microwave runs but don't heat up

The magnetron has failed, or the inverter board, "if 7 years old or less" there is also a possibility the keypad control board may be the problem.

How to replace the front buttons?

Most microwaves use a membrane type keypad that is glued to the front panel..they can be expensive though, but aren't too hard to involves removing the cover...unplugging the keypad ribbon cable...removing the old keypad...and reinstalling the new keypad

Microwave Sharp carousel model R-1440 appears to have had the child-proof lock feature accidentally activated--every time a button is touch on the face board, "lock" is displayed. As this unit is ~15 years...

I would expect that you have a shorting membrane keypad.

The original part number for the plastic frame with keypad was FPNLCB074MRK0 but it is no longer available.

The oven will have to be retired.

Microwave beeping and says keypad short may need service

the membrane gets dirt under them and shorts out the keypad,you may as well just replace the control board which includes the display and keypad on the same board

Tricky touch pad on Sharp R530 es microwave oven

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The original part number FPNLCB346MRK0 has been replaced by part # FPNLCB346MRK0B and it runs $58.28 plus shipping.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