The sharp corousel microwave ( Model R-308 JW) was working . There was a small roach nest in the lighted digital display and the display was hardly to read . This was the only issue. After...


Look into the connector and see the point of contact which is visible of the metal contacts. Now the carbon tracks must be on the side of the metal contacts of the connector. In this case it is possible that while you pulled out the flexible stip cord there is damage on the strip , can be that the carbon tracks were damaged and so it does not contact. if so use a carbon track pen to line the tracks so as to contact.
Reversing the cord will not do any damage as there will not be any contact.
finally make sure that the PCB( printed circuit board) was washed with petrol and brushed properly and then DRIED before the unit was powered or else it can damage the processor.
Check the connection leads that were removed and make sure that it went to the correct postion.
Sometimes the touch pads refuse to work once it is disturbed as it might get damaged in the carbon tracks within.

1) Unplug microwave
2) Remove two small screws from upper face plate
3) Remove screw on upper side of control panel
4) Life panel and pull out
5) Identify flat tape-like harness connecting circuit card to keypad
6) Wipe down harness with an all-purpose wipe
7) Use hairdryer to dry remaining leftover moisture

8) After this put the keypad back if its not solved then replace it.

Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Fire inside oven during operation on right side metal plate


Arcing is caused by the build up of grease that is converted to carbon. Clean the baked on carbon from the oven cavity. If regular cleaning doesn't remove the carbon, sand it away and touch up with a similiar color paint.

Heating up a heat pack has caused the small


The plate MIGHT cover the waveguide that brings the microwave energy into the cooking cavity, This might be say an inch by two or three inches.

IF the plate has burned or discolored, then it may be carbonized and will continue to absorb the microwave energy and MAY cach fire.

You should service the unit and replace the part.

Running the microwave with too small a load in it can cause this and also if hot food/object touches the plate.

XL1800 Microwave Problem


A LOUD ticking sound could very well be a High Voltage Arc. This is usually caused by a breakdown of insulation on High Voltage Wires, or components. It can also be arcing between the door frame and the cavity. Usually where the bottom of the cavity floor meets the door frame. Indication of this will be small areas on the door where it looks like the paint has been chipped off, but if you look close you will see it is small burned marks. Another area is the Splatter Shield located inside and at the top. It looks like a Plastic Cover. It is not plastic, but a fiber material. Grease, and food will get trapped on and under this Splatter Shield. Over a period of time the grease and food particles will break down from being cooked over and over again. They will then form Carbon. Which will Arc when Microwaves are present. Remove Push-Pins holding Splatter Shield. Clean by washing with dish detergent . If burned (arc) spots are still present after washing, replace Splatter Shield or arcing will continue. Once Carbon has burned through, it will continue to burn.

Replace handle on microwave oven


The part number for a new handle is 820941 and costs approx. $19. If you already have the part and are wanting to install it follow these steps:

You can either do this with the door in place, or remove it. To remove it, you open the door all the way and push up at the hinges. The door should lift off the hinge pins.

1. On the back side of the door (the side that faces the interior of the oven) is a plastic facing around the perimeter of the glass.

2. There should be a series of slots or grooves around the facing that you can place a small screwdriver in.

3. Carefully (I cannot emphasize this enough) lift around the facing until it comes loose. You may not have to remove it all the way around the door. Sometimes you can gain enough access by lifting on the side where the door handle it mounted.

4. Under the door facing are the mounting bolts (or screws). Remove broken handle and install new handle.

5. Reinstall components in the reverse order as stated before.

If you are waiting to order the part for your oven, you can get it at repairclinic.com. The part will be shipped directly do you for a nominal shipping fee.

This should be a fairly simple repair that only takes about 10-15 minutes.

Again, be careful with the door. If you break it, a replacement door costs over $200! Good luck and let me know if I can help further.

Micro Wave Daewoo


It sounds like maybe what you're referring to is the splatter shield or waveguide cover? The job of the waveguide cover is to protect the waveguide (opening) and the magnetron from buildup of food particles and grease. When the grease and food particles build up on and behind the cover, they will carbonize and arc - and maybe even flame up! The solution is to clean it and keep it clean - but if it's too dirty or is burned, it must be replaced. Sometimes it's necessary to remove the cover to clean both sides of it, and to clean the edges of the opening it covers. It is sometimes held in place with a small plastic rivet (or screw) and once that is removed, the cover will slide over a little then drop down. Be VERY careful not to get cut on the potentially sharp edges of the opening, and do not spray anything into the opening. Apply an alcohol-based cleaner (such as the purple kind) and /or gentle scouring powder to a cloth or paper towel and carefully wipe it out, then when it's dry, reinstall the cover and the rivet. I suggest to my customers that they NEVER use any ammonia-based cleaner (like the blue stuff) on a microwave, since the ammonia will crack and distort polycarbonate plastics.

Can't tell you much about your little rectangle, but sparks can result from left over food particles that got carbonized, and a good cleaning might get rid of it, unless you like looking at the sparks(I heard you shouldn't stare at a microwave while working though, washing machines are safer). make sure you unplug it while cleaning or doing anything else, those micros are dangerous as hell. Take care
