Touch pad on microwave doesn't work

My touch does not work in certain areas. I had this problem once before and after several days it fixed itself. I can't afford to pay to have it fixed.

HI, since this happen before and it suddenly fixed itself, i don't think its major. i recommend checking the ribbons for a tight fit. theses connection ribbons may be lose or partiality separated form the control board, in return, causing this fault. you can accesses the ribbons by removing the backcover of this unit. if the ribbons are in good condition, i recommend replacing the touch pad membrane.

The touch pad sounds like it is trying to tell you it has a stuck pad. The touch pad will need replacing.

Touch pad inoperaive


Unfortunately, if you are having problems with a touch pad you will probably have to replace either the touch pad itself, if you can get it or the whole control board and touch pad as a unit which normally ends up running as much as a new microwave. I would check your warranty and see if it still is covered and proceed that direction.

Buttons on microwave


testing every step and fix it. God bless you see the diagram attached

Microwave Buttons Don't Work
Touchpad and Control Panel


If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad and control panel assembly are probably defective.
Touchpad


If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad might be at fault. Generally speaking, if the dishwasher display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.
User Control and Display Board


If the microwave buttons don't work the user control and display board are most likely defective and will need to be replaced. If some of the buttons work and some don't, it is more likely a touch pad problem and the touch pad will need to be replaced.
Main Control Board


If the microwave buttons don't work the main control board is most likely defective and will need to be replaced. If some of the buttons work the touch pad is likely the problem. If none of the buttons work the problem may be in the main control board.1_24_2013_5_23_47_pm.gif1_24_2013_5_24_54_pm.jpg

Only certain buttons of microwave oven touch pad work.


Hi, welcome to Fixya!

From your question, I suspect the fault is from the control board of the microwave. This is why some buttons on the the touch-pad are not working.

Have the control board replaced and the buttons that refuse to work will start working again.

I hope the above is clear. If not, please let me know.

Regards.

On the touch pad numbers 3, 6, 7 and 0 dont work


sounds like the touch pad control has failed ... there is a touch pad on this unit and also a control board located behind units touch pad... you can gain access to this by unplugging unit and removing console that houses touch pad /clock assembly ... once removed the only test there really is to do would be with power off remove ribbon cable to touch pad and make sure clear of any dust /debri and reconnect there are 2 small holes in ribbon cable that are used when reconnected fir into small slots and firmly connect... if that doesnt fix i would recommend a new touch pad... not sure what area your located... there is a distributor for sharp in dallas ,texas called
global micro parts... reputable company that if you give them your model number they can assist you with the part.... good luck to you

Touchpad is not working


Hello :

If touch pad has gotten wet, then allow to dry for several days. Avoid spraying cleaning liquid near touch pad.
Check for insect infestation. Insects (cockroaches most frequently) will appear under clear surface of touch pad or under readout window; they like the warmth of the circuit boards.
Place window mesh over vent to keep insects out.

good luck .

My microwave Oven, send a F1 messagge and doesn´t work. What can I do?


F 11 code. it is a touch pad error.
If you just cleaned the control panel it may have water in the panel causing a key to stick.
If after a day or 2 it hasn't dried out - then you will need to replace the touch pad.
