Question about Sharp R-1501 Microwave Oven
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.
