According to the owner's manual (found online here) neither the interior nor cooktop bulbs should exceed 30 watts.

The original Sharp part number is RLMPTA068WRE0 if you'd like to order them.

You can get them Encompass here or Sears Parts Direct.

What is the wattage on the sharp microwave model r-2a48?


http://www.sharpusa.com doesn't have your manual. But you can find it yourself on the
back of the unit - the wattage should be listed.

If only the amperage is given (you know the voltage is 120 VAC RMS), so using Ohm's Law, you can calculate wattage:

Watts = 120 Volts X Amps

Sharp Carousel Microwave work light/night light has two light bulbs. One light will turn off by pressing the panel control, but the other light remains on. Must remove light from socket in order for the...


We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so.

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, cooling fan, turntable, and/or inside light operation, too.

Details of our service are at our Web site, along with a video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Feel free to contact me directly with your brand, full model number and symptoms.

I have a Sharp model R-1610 Microwave. The work/night light does not work. I"ve changed the bulbs.


Does it operate with a membrane-type touchpad?

These things seem to be problematic as the microwave ages.

They are usually replaceable, and the cost is not great. I just installed a new touchpad on an LG, and it cost $25.00 plus shipping.

How to install latch and spring in microwave door


You need to know where the 'catches' are inside the choke cover on the door to remove it carefully without breaking anything or marring the cover. You might get inside and find that the post for mounting the return spring has broken and that is part of the outer door panel.

Sharp R-1500 range lights


Are any other bulbs in the home going out prematurely? If so, I would check the actual voltage of your power outlets. If not, the bulbs may be getting grease or debris on them from stovetop cooking. This can cause hot psots and premature failure. I recommend wiping them clean with alcohol on a cloth before installing them. I recommend that folks always have their hood fan on when cooking on the stovetop. Also, you might check with a local home center (Lowe's, Home Depot, etc.) to see if they have some high-quality (non-Chinese) substitutes.
