Question about Sharp R-216FS Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Microwave problems. (its "sharp" brand but im not sure of the model #)

When i enter time and hit "start" on the microwave the timer starts but the microwave isnt actually working. but when i lightly hit the "door open" button, not enough to relese the levers to open the door but just enough for it to pass the front or the microwave it starts working. Is this a wireing problem that i can personally fix or should i just toss it or take it to a pro?

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.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

How do you use the kitchen timer and cook at the same time?


If you have the kitchen timer set for instance for 10 minutes and it is counting down, and then you want to reheat you coffee for 2 minutes. You would hit either time cook or reheat button and enter 2 minutes ten hit start. The microwave will heat your coffee and show the 2 minute countdown for that. When done it will revert back to what is left on the 10 minute kitchen timer without missing a beat on most microwaves.

Sharp microwave 8888 is flashing and I cannot remove


see this steps and fix it. God bless you

Reset the clock. Press "Clock" and the correct time, using the number pads. Press "AM/PM" if applicable, and press "Start" or "Clock" to confirm.

  • 2 Press "Timer On/Off" to reset the timer if nothing on the touch pad will operate. Use the number pads to select a new timed amount, if desired, and press "Timer On/Off" to start. Press again to cancel.
  • 3 Press and hold "Clear/Off" for three seconds if the timer will not function or is blinking when you touch the pads. This will release the "Child Lock" feature. Make a new touch pad selection.
  • 4 Disconnect power to the microwave if following Steps 1 through 3 does not resolve the blinking timer. Wait a few minutes, and then restore power to reset the microwave.

  • However if the problem persist the display board
    main control board is faulty

    No! The problem is one or two bad door switches, or possibily the keypad control board.

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

    On these, it's usually a broken tab on the upper switch holder.

    One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

    That sounds like what's happening when you hold the Start pad - maybe you're moving the frame and chassis enough to help it work.

    Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

    Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

    There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

    The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

    Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

    If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

    You can probably find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number here at the Sears parts site.

    The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics.

    If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.
