Calling manufacture is usually the best bet to find part numbers and distributors in your area

get the model and id go to marcone.com, repairclinic.com, and partselect.com are the most common for me.

most the time its called an ECB(electronic control board), PCB(power control board), most the time if its called a control panel they are refering to the decorative part cover, so look at the list carefully

If left plugged in, microwave fills timer screen with "7's" then scrolls "push start". Circuit board? Fix?


I would say that the number 7 button is either broken or stuck in. If still under warranty, take it back. Otherwise, contact the vendor of the microwave and ask them how much it would cost to fix it. Generally, it's cheaper to buy a new microwave than replace the circuit board, unless you can find second hand parts on eBay or a similar site.

Whirlpool microwave start button not working


There are 2 possibilities the first is that the button is locked. Some modern microwaves have lock buttons so children do not play with them. To unlock it you can try either holding th "start" button until you hear a tone of hold the "stop/end" button until you hear a tone. If that does not work it means that the button it self underneath of the plastic is broken or blown which means that it must either be repaired or the microwave must be replaced. For the price it may be more cost effective to replace it is the button is broken.

Emerson microwave, #MW8119SB, push start button to start cooking


Replace the fuse with a ceramic fuse from Home depot! costs less than $3 and it will fix the problem. I had all the same problems as everyone else, you name it my microwave had it! you must remember replace it with a ceramic fuse! not a glass one. I know people say its the switchboard and all that nonsence but I promise you, the fuse plays a majoe roll in the microwave not working properly. Even though it doesnt look broken, a junky fuse can cause your appliance to do very strange things. I replaced mine 6 months ago and it works like its fresh out of the box.

My microwave is locked and i dont know how to unlock it


"Locke" meaning the door? or locked meaning the buttons don't work? If it is the buttons then you have the child lock on. Push and hold the "Start" button for 4 to 5 seconds, and it will unlock.

Sharp R-1450 microwave


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or occasionally a problem on the control panel.

On these, it's usually a broken tab on the upper switch holder.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

That sounds like what's happening when you hold the Start pad - maybe you're moving the frame and chassis enough to help it work.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

You can probably find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number here at the Sears parts site.

The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.
