I also have a Sharp Carousel Microwave oven model # R-409AK in which the clock/ timer digital display has become faint and can not read the time. The microwave part works fine otherwise. What part do I...

It is a display panel you require and you should be able to get a manual at the same time.

Hope it is helpfull

Round soft key OXO Timer I need to change the clock time their model # is 1061978

Operating functions:
To set the clock, press and hold the clock/timer button for three seconds. A clock icon will appear on the left side of the screen. Input the time using the numerical buttons and then click the clock/timer button to save the time.
To set the timer, press and release the clock/timer button so that the display shows all zeroes. Enter the desired time using the keypad. Press start/stop to start the countdown. The countdown may be paused by pressing the stop/start button and resumed by pressing the same button again.
When countdown is complete, timer will beep continuously for thirty seconds and display will flash. Timer will then beep every ten seconds for ten minutes until the stop/start button is pressed.
This timer will also time up to time activities. To start count up, press clear/memory so timer reads all zeroes. Press stop/start and a plus sign will appear on the right side of the screen as the timer begins counting up.

Built-in Sharp Carousel II Microwave Convection Oven died.

There are a couple of safety thermostats in the oven to shut down power if something overheats. One is on the magnetron tube (the microwave source), the other is on the cooking cavity. These sometimes go bad. There's also a power line fuse that may have failed, or become loose in its mounting clips. These can be tested with an ohmmeter; they should all measure very close to zero ohms if they're good.

Another possibility is that the control circuit board in the oven may have failed. I have worked on several Sharp ovens where the power transformer for the board has gone bad for no good reason. If the board goes bad the oven may appear to be dead as well.

Microwave servicing is best left to professionals. If you're thinking of keeping this one, take it to a service shop (or call for home service) and get an estimate. Then decide whether to repair or replace.

Hope this has helped a little. Thanks for using Fixya!

Sharp Microwave Display intermittently working. Most of the time can't see time or countdown.

Only way this can repaired is to replace the whole display. If the unit is still under warranty take it to your local Sharp Service Center.

Otherwise, it is more than likely beyond economical repair. If you can live with it as is and just use it for short reheating you'll be fine, but the display will not improve. It can also be a safety issue as you could accidentally put in too great a time and burn foo, or even yourself with the contents of the microwave.

Display not lit up

Seems like the display panel went bad. You can check for sure by unplagging the unit for 45 seconds and plugging it back in. If still no display order a new display panel.

Sounds like it's running but no heat

Those symptoms are what I would expect when the controller or keypad gets wet. Tipping it is not an issue, unless that allowed the water to run into the controls more than just the wet soapy washcloth did. You may get lucky - it may dry out by itself in a few days. If not, and if careful targeting drying doesn't fix it, it will need a new keypad or controller.
