Microwave will not run a cook cycle. Touchpad functions until door is opened or start button is pressed. When door is opened display goes dark. When door shuts display lights all characters and then says...


BEFORE DOING ANYTHING DISCONNECT OVEN FROM POWER. I do NOT recommend doing repair by yourself, if you NOT are really very familiar with electric repair, or have at least basic training in electric device repair and maintenance.
"When door is opened display goes dark. When door shuts display lights all characters and then says "touch clock"."
Obviously, by opening door, oven gets disconnected form power line.
This is mostly caused by loose connections on wiring socket, and can be anywhere inside. Check security micro switch on door latch. This switch normally disables only running the oven when door is open, for security reasons. In your case, it seems that opening door disconnects oven from input power. Sometimes the switch is loose, or wires are not firmly pushed in the socket. If the power line wiring is loose, and by opening door looses contact with socket, it can touch metal housing inside, cause short, electric shock, serious even mortal injury and fire. This is dangerous high voltage switch, and to access it one must open oven from the back and take off the cover. I do not recommend doing it by your self.
Rem: Replacement micro switch is couple dollars.

Will not cook


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 maybe an hour. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

Please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you.

The digital display is very dim and hard to read even in the dark. Is there a way to adjust the brightness?


I have a Sharp Carousel 1.5kW microwave oven with model number R-310F(W)C. The LCD dispaly on my unit recently became very dim. After check the small circuit board on the front panel, I found that the problem is caused by the LCD backlight driver which drives three surface mount LEDs. As the LED driver is inside a chip built on a small daughter card, it requires a replacement daughter card, or the entire circuit board for display and keyboard. A simple alternative solution is to cut the link between the three LEDs and their driver, then build a small circuit to drive the LEDs. I can provide the circuit diagram if interested.
