Since it's under warranty, they will replace or repair it at their choice, and if they replace it, it will be the same model or a "like model".

I'd ask them about it.

SOURCE: display panel works but no heat, no fan, turn table doesn't turn

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch mount, which are pretty simple problems to fix.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually 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 find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

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

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: MICROWAVE WILL NOT HEAT. F9 APPEARS IN THE DISPLAY WINDOW

F9 indicates a problem with the door latch.  There is a safety switch that will not allow the microwave to operate if it detects the door is not closed properly.  Even though physically it may seem the door is shut, the safety switch is not relaying the message to the onboard computer.  You need another door latch switch.

SOURCE: MICROWAVE DOES NOT HEAT.

The F-9 error code indicates a defective control board, inverter or line voltage too high.

Repair or Replace them.


Thanks.

How do I increase the intensity of the green in the display on my Sharp Carousel R-1460A microwave oven?


This model does not have a brightness adjustment for the VFD display.

It may be a weak VFD tube due to aging or it may be that the rear of the display window and front of the display glass are very dusty.

Sometimes you can clean it inside to brighten it up.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Then you can detach the keypad connector (as per attached photo) then remove the control panel screws.

Be careful not to crack the glass display when handling it, or it's a goner.

Then you can use a soft cloth (not a paper towel) and a mild cleaner (not ammonia-based) to clean the front surface of the VFD display glass and the rear side of the clear bezel (display window) that's attached to the keypad.

Some connectors have a lock.

positivelock.jpgIf that cleaning didn't help, then you have a weak VFD.

We can replace yours for $74.95. Details are here.

Model NN-ST659W works for about 30 seconds then displays H98 on the display panel how do I fix this problem


H95, H97, H98 or H99 mean that there's a problem with your inverter, magnetron, or digital programming circuit.

Due to the lethal voltages used and produced, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.

You can find an authorized Panasonic servicer here. If you're not in the US, see Panasonic.net.

It's usually a weak VFD tube, but in some cases it may be that the rear of the display window and front of the display glass are very dusty.

Sometimes you can clean it inside to brighten it up a bit.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Then you can use a soft cloth (not a paper towel) and a mild cleaner (not ammonia-based) to clean the front surface of the VFD display glass and the rear side of the clear bezel (display window) that's attached to the keypad.

Direct spraying of cleaners on the controls or keypad (and steam from the cooktop) can damage the controls.

I always recommend that you spray non-ammonia cleaner on a soft cloth (not a paper towel which can scratch) and gently wipe the keypad.

If that cleaning didn't help, then you have a weak VFD.

On this model, the VFD is not available separately, so you would have to order a new control circuit board for it.

I'd recommend that your bookmark this link to your favorites.

The letter d on screen.turns on but doesnt heat


Your microwave is in demo mode, which means it will not heat. To turn it off touch and hold TIMER SET/OFF for 5 seconds until 2 tones sound and the "d" disappears on the display.

Kenmore built in microwave displaying "D" and wont heat.


"d" may mean demo mode. The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power outlet for 10 minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.
