Question about Sharp Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I turned the oven off at the wall while we were away for a few weeks, and when I turned it back on today I saw that the LED display isn't working properly. The oven itself is working (light  inside the oven is on when the door is open and off when the door is closed, the turntable rotates, water in a mug heats up). Can you suggest what I can do please?

The oven (10+ years old GE True Temp double wall oven) beeps and displays an F7 error message. We can temporarily stop it by pushing the Clear button, but it starts again in a few seconds. We don't know...

I'm a GE tech, the F7 means there is either a stuck button on the keypad or relay on the board behind the keypad. Shut off the breaker. Remove the 3 screws under the keypad and lift the panel a bit to remove it. Lay it face down on the top rack and disconnect the ribbon cable. Turn power back on and if f7 goes away the problem is in the keypad. If f76 returns it's in the control. We typically replace both together because usually if you replace 1 it will come back later then be the other part.

Our frigidaire microwave won't turn on

The reset is because it lost power at some point. There could be a loose wire internally or a blown fuse. Your call to open the console and check a few things your self or call fr service. Eric

Clock and temperature display not working on my jenn-air oven.

The problem is a failure of your latch mechanism. It's a bad design and should have been warrentied by a company that cared about people more than profits.
Here's the real fix! 1. Go to radio shack and buy the 100uF (microfarad) 35 Volt capacitor that costs $1.49 cents as of fall of 2010. 2. Open your oven panal with the 4-7 screws depending on model. Remember to turn off the circut breaker to your oven for safety's sake. 3. Remove the ribbons holding the panals on, remove the clock display panel. 4. De-solder the C3 capacitor (68uF 35V) capacitor. Note the polarity marks on the capacitor before you remove it. Now solder in the new 100uF 35V capacitor with the correct polarity. 5. Reassemble the oven display by connecting ribbons and putting panal back in screws and all. 6. Have a beer, glass of wine, or at least a pat on the back for saving over 300 bucks in repair bills.
(If you can't solder, meet a neighbor or friend who can and give them a beer or dozen cookies for their help.)
This fix took me one dollar and 50 cents worth of cash and all of 10 minutes of my time from the moment I started unscrewing the display to the moment I put the breaker back on and saw my fix worked.
Cheers! Screw the repair man and his rediculous fixes!

GE SpacemakerXL Microwave oven quits after a few seconds

This disgusting type of repair procedure is called "shotgunning".

I have always preferred testing and experience to determine what is wrong, as opposed to guessing!

I assume that they did not charge you for the good parts they mistakenly replaced?

IF they are a GE-authorized service center, they should have recalled a bulletin from a while back about defective or mismounted magnetrons causing electrical interference that disrupts the controller.

What your oven needs is a new magnetron and (IMHO) their hands off of it. If the thermostat were bad, the oven would be totally dead.

You can find GE-authorized servicers by contacting GE Customer Service here.

Good luck.

Power Problems on NEFF H7871 Combi Microwave

It would seem there is a bad connection in the fuse holder or in the wall socket or in the microwave itself. Maybe you can narrow it down to the microwave by trying other devices in the wall socket. If it's the microwave, it's time to call for serivce.
