Question about Sharp R-1501 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Nite Lites won't Lite

I've replaced these nite lites twice and they seem to blow out as soon as they are installed. This is just one of many problems with this oven. I'm suprised that Sharp hasn't owned up to taking care of their mistakes.

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.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

Advantium display reads "nite"


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes. Feel free to contact me directly (see below) if you have other questions.- William E. Miller, AS-EET

It's not a ground problem, but more likely a weak or open neutral connection somewhere. This can cause damage to other connected devices because of excessive voltage, and should be taken care of quickly. You should have a licensed electrician check and repair this, both because it may be difficult to locate exactly where the problem is, and because your insurance policy will probably require repairs be done by qualified personnel.

Model r1200 sharp microwave display does not lite, have replaced twice and other people who have purchased have the same problem. Does the new version 2 color display replace my display


Sharp microwave is a very good unit. If you have done same repair twice before, i suggest replace board complete with display next time as there could very possibly be a set of defective components on the old board that is causing this display problem. Have done this repair before and noted how thin the tracks are also. Honestly go for new board if you can.
