Re: Microwave touch pad work light doesn't work

We see this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:

Sharp microwave stopped working

Is it totally dead? No display? Or just does not cook? If it made an unusual noise before it 'died' something probably shorted out.... You need an ohm meter to troubleshoot. If the fuse is open, switches and HV circuit need to be checked before replacing fuse. Sometimes on the convection Microwaves (not just Sharp) the fuse will 'rust' and open rather than blow. Or the fuse holder can over heat and fail.

Sharp Carousel Convection Oven. Model R-9H54.touch pad

It depends on what you mean by "a problem with the touch pad assembly".

If some or all keys do not respond, you would probably need a new keypad, but the key units for all Sharp R-9H-series models have been unavailable for a few years now.

These units did indeed last a long time.

Sorry I can't bring better news.
