First of all is it really the membrane keypad itself, or just the clear protective sheet over the keypad which you're supposed to remove when it's new?

Keypad trouble can be serious, so until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and please do not leave it running unattended.

If it's really the keypad and less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty as long as it's not been damaged by outside forces. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

You can contact Sharp at 1-800-BE-SHARP (1-800-237-4277) or visit them online.

If it's out of warranty, or
if you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

You can order parts from Encompass here or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

If you would like to have us do this repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

I have a Kenwood microwave oven which has a plastic film on the inside of the glass door. I have used it like this since new as it was not obvious that a film was stuck on the inside until now as it is...


It should have been removed from new. Much of your foodstuffs could have contained toxic substances that leach from this plastic membrane. But as you are writing to ask then you have survived so far.
Remove it......

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Inside finish is peeling off


No, if the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

Otherwise, you can have rust and arcing, which can be messy.

Paint peeling inside microwave


If the unit has been operating properly for some time with no issues, I would say it is fine to continue to use. The issue I would have would be with the possibility with the paint falling into the food.

It would be interesting for you to call the manufacturers' support line and ask why this is happening. Maybe they will offer you a replacement if it was a manufacturing process defect. Mention that the paint may have fallen into the food.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

Sharp Carousel R-201EW 600 Watt


The keypad is available separately (you have to peel off the old one and stick the new one on) for about $36 plus shiping. It is also available preassembled with a new control panel frame and display for about $78 plus shipping. They are available from Tritronics at http:www.wehaveparts.com BUT - I would first suspect and check for a failing door switch. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure. I have a text file called "doorsw.txt" which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems, and a file called "safety.txt" which is of vital importance. You can find these files via a Google search. In some cases, the problem is a bad connection or a bad relay on the control board. That's something we see from time to time, and we repair those nationwide, but it's usually a door switch. If you still have a problem, please write back with more detail. Be safe!
