Question about Sharp R-1500 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Start button fell inside the panel

The Start button on my microwave just fell right into the side panel of my microwave when I pushed it "on" and now, of course, nothing works. This thing has been a problem since the day I bought it and I wish I had never been captivated the the "works inside the door" feature, which I thought was pretty cool. Help!

Control panel on GE Profile Spacemaker microwave not working


You are right the control panel is very expensive, you can try the filter to see if you can get it working, but I must admit a new microwave oven sounds appealing.

The oven control panel won't let me push light and work. Even when putting in the times for microwaving, the start button won't work. The panel seems to not be working. Do I need to replace the panel?


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.

If it is just failing to start when you press "Start", it may just be a door switch or mount. See this file.

If several keys are not working, it is almost certainly a bad keypad.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

Outside glass dooor on Whirlpool oven fell off, what do i do?


Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.

Our MH7130eq microwave will not start after pushing the start button on The clock, timer, hood fan works, however the micro will not start


Check the door safety switches . remove the cover ... look on the right side near the top. Just because they sound like they are working doesnt mean they are working. Sheck them with an ohm meter or other contunity tester.

Door switches are the most common reason for microwave failure.

The button to push that turns the microwave on won't stay pushed


When you hold a button in you are bypassing the safety controls Marian. Microwave energy can be deadly so you are taking a chance here. I recommend you consider replacing the oven as the new ovens are cheap and have great features. Service on these units cost more than a new unit.

The most common suspect here is a shorted high voltage capacitor, since you say it blew the fuse right after Start, but I would certainly suggest checking the door switches and door switch mounts first. Just be sure you installed the right fuse. It would be a The switch mounts seem to break at about this point in the life of these models.
