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?

I beleave you would have to replace the display. you can also try cleaning it and also check the connections.

I found a service manual, this one costs il see if I can find a free one

When the unit is turned on it shoots flames from the roof of the unit WHY?


It sound like the antenna behind the plastic plate may be warped and touching the cavity. From my experience when they start shooting sparks it is time for a new microwave.

Whirlpool model number MH7140XFB no longer heats


you either need a new h.v. capacitor or h.v. diode in the magnetron circuitry if you cant hear it cycle when it runs as in a low pitched hummmm when its drawing current to operate the magnetron tube, each part runs about $30 to $45 each,normally its the h.v. capacitor though

The display no longer lights up


VFDs (vacuum fluorescent displays) are tricky, most likely you are looking at replacing the entire board. This contains the display and the entry key plus their logic. If you open it up check the connections for cold soldier joints, beyond that it's probably time for a new oven, much cheaper!

My microwave turns off when I start it


its the program bord inside your microwave playing up and to be realy honest its realy not worth paying out good money to get it fixed even if you could get the new bord,,,its better to just buy a new microwave there so cheap now you can pick them up for less than £50.00p and it would cost you all of that just for the repair man to come and look at it,,,,why do you think they all drive round in big cars?

Unfortunately, its not just Sharp. Many small appliance manufacturers are designing their products with an obsolete date as early as the warranty runs out. I see this all the time....even on very expensive items. For many mfgs, its cheaper to keep the manufacturing lines churning than to build an appliance to last....say 10 years. I do hope your experience with the new microwave is much better...and longer lasting. M

Give out a buzzing noise with a burning burning smell. Is it worth fixing or should we get a compatible replacement since this model is no longer available. Thanks


This is a common symptom of a failed magnetron, or defective wave guide assembly. The price of a new magnetron is about $120. The waveguide (if defective) cannot be purchased without buying a new unit. Your choice. Do you think its worth repairing? You can purchase a new magnetron, but if the waveguide is damaged, the unit will still exhibit the same symptoms you are experiencing. Its not often that I give advice NOT to fix something, but in your case, it may not be the best choice.
