Sharp Carousel Model R-209KK-W is flashing all 8's and keypad not working

The first thing to try is to do a hard reset.

Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

If it still doesn't work, it may need repair, which can be done for $39.95 in most cases.

Carousel does not turn

This is quite a common problem and often associated with a recent spill (boiling over) of liquid in the microwave. Liquid overflows the glass dish, onto the floor of the microwave and down the hole where the drive motor that turns the plate is located. Liquid runs down the shaft of the motor and into the drive motor which then stops it functioning. Because the drive motors on most microwaves are induction motors, and not driven by a traditional armature with brushes, about 75% of the time you can fix this by drying the motor out (Though this depends on the liquid spilled).
You will have to get into the underside of the microwave, often this means snipping a bit of the casing directly under the drive motor (Which is of course directly beneath the drive shaft that pokes up beneath the glass plate).
Once you gain access, you will see the motor clearly and it is usually held in place by 2, 3 or 4 screws, unscrew from mountings, unplug the power wires (They usually have a couple of wires from the motor with a little plug on the end that you can pull out).
Give the motor a good shake to remove any liquid and then go put it on top of your boiler, in your airing cupboard, out in the warm sun or even (If you trust yourself not to cook it!) in your oven on a very very low heat. Leave in the warm place for a day (not that long with the oven option!!) until it is thoroughly dry. To test, plug it back in, but don't bother to reassemble yet. Turn on the microwave and see if the spindle turns. If it does, it's fixed, if it doesn

Hi, one of the most common reasons why the turntable won't rotate is that the microwave isn't clean. The turntable guide and carousel can get sticky, preventing the turntable from properly moving. If you have built-on food particles or liquids, fill a bowl with 2 or 3 cups of water and 1 tsp. of liquid detergent and lemon. Run the microwave for about 3 minutes. Clean the microwave with a cloth, including the base of the turntable, guide, carousel grooves and microwave base. Your microwave turntable won't rotate if the grooves on the base of the turntable do not sit right on the carousel. Also, check the position of the turntable guide. Place the guide directly under the turntable. Remove the turntable, and then reposition it into the carousel grooves.
Motor The carousel motor is located beneath the base plate of the microwave. If the carousel isn't turning at all, check the motor. Disconnect the microwave from the power source, and remove the turntable, guide and base plate. Try turning the motor to see if it's just stuck. If it doesn't turn freely after a few seconds, examine the motor to see if it's burned out or corroded. Use an ohmmeter to see if the motor has continuity. If not, you must replace the motor.
Bushings The drive bushings are plastic components that sit underneath the cooking plate. Remove the plate, and examine the bushings. Use a magnifying glass if necessary to see if any debris is caught in the plastic. Clean the bushings, and reinsert the plate. Turn the microwave on to see if it rotates. If the bushings are extremely worn or if some of the plastic is broken off, you need to replace it, which is a complicated repair for consumers. Contact a service technician for assistance.
