Question about Sharp R-820B Convection/Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Interactive display only shows half the letter and number.

Is it worth it to try to fix this part of the unit? It is six years old. Only use the microwave portion. I know this Sharp was a problem as a combo unit. Also, can I replace the interactive display myself? Thanks!

I have a 12yo Sharp r-430cs microwave. The LED is not displaying all the "lights" in the numbers/alpha readouts. It is missing a lot more of the readout than it is showing. Everything else is working


Go to Sharp's website and check availability of the clock/timer readout board. Being that old you may not be successful, but it;s worth a try.

Not heating, display blank


Quite often this is a failed electrolytic capacitor on the control circuit board.

Sharp microwave 1200 watts keypad showing


Not a complete answer, but may help describe problem: Our R-510B should be the same except for color, and for several years it has intermittently messed up its display. The left side two segments on the units digit won't light up. So a digit 8, without the two vertical bars on the left, comes out as a letter E reversed left to right. Any digit that uses the two left segments (traditionally labelled segments E and F when talking about 7-segment displays) comes out wrong. Every thing else works fine. I can't tell if this is your problem.
This is almost surely a bad contact at the interface between the LCD display panel and the PC board: Typically there is a "squishy" conductive strip that connects them, and I expect grease has gotten in there. If so careful disassembly and cleaning with a mild solvent should fix it. Since we can live with it, and it usually fixes itself in a few weeks, I have not got around to taking it apart.

Major Arching!!!!


Hello Doug,

Not sure I understand exactly what you are being confronted with when you say the arcing occurs on the right side .. I assume that is the side that houses the magnetron and waveguide assembly.. The fact that your microwave is 1.5 years old is irrelevant unless you have extended warranty coverage. If you place a cup of water in the cooking compartment and run the micro for about 1.5 minutes do you still experience arcing? If so.. you may have a loose connection on the magnetron, a bad magnetron , filament transformer may be breaking down or any number of non user serviceable components. Unless you are properly schooled on how to service a microwave oven, you should not try the repair yourself. There are high voltage components in there that pose a safety hazard even when power is disabled. If yoyrs is a table top model, the cost to repair may exceed the cost to replace so it may not be worth it.. Hope this helps...

Interactive display on microwave


Is it the LCD display that you are speaking of? Is it full vertical or horizontal lines that are out, or only certain LCD segments of the numbers/letters?

The Control Panel is failing. The Control Panel consists of a Keypad, and a Control PC (Printed Citcuit) Board. You can replace it as a complete unit. Not Cheap!!
Good Luck!
