The first thing to try is a "hard reset": Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, then try again.

If that doesn't fix it, can you describe the icon? Does the manual show the icon?

Please write back with more details if you need further help.

This may be a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Sharp R-9H84B-display black, cleared display shows "Conv Mix, 88:88 Auto". Short time all dark again. Hit clear happen 2 times then, all dark, no power, can't clear won't start, nothing works.

I would suggest pulling the control board out and looking on the foil side (opposite the component side) for "ring cracks," most likely on the low voltage transformer's connections.

The board may have the screen-printed reference designator "T1" near the low voltage transformer.


Also be sure the fuse is not easy to turn with your fingertips when it is in the holder. If it is, the fuse holder is too loose and must be replaced (not just squeezed with pliers).

You can order a fuse holder, part number WB06X10034 for $6.49 (subject to change) from the Pros here.

If you have any keypad issues, please note that the membrane keypads for this model have long been discontinued.

Sounds like you should get estimates and turn in on homeowners insurance. Power surges are very destructive and you have lost the control board at least and maybe some switches. Eric

Does not start !

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

This can be caused by slamming the door or by habitually opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.
