There is no separate control for the backlight. It will have to be repaired or replaced.

Since it's less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty.

Since it's less than 30 days, I would strongly suggest trying to return it to the dealer so you don't get stuck with a bad unit.

If they won't take it back, you need to contact the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

You can contact Sharp at 1-800-BE-SHARP (1-800-237-4277) or visit them online.

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

Sharp Carousel Model R-209KK-W is flashing all 8's and keypad not working


The first thing to try is to do 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 about 5 minutes.

If it still doesn't work, it may need repair, which can be done for $39.95 in most cases.

Sharp R 209KK-W number buttons


The keypad control board will probably need to be replaced, however the part alone will cost more than some microwave ovens.

I have a sylvania model 11092b. all my functions work and run but the oven doesn't heat up at all. any suggestions? the microwave was manufactured in january 2008 and has only been used maybe 20 times...


I have one that does the same thing and its problem is a bad door switch. When I took the case off, the switch looked melted. It was made in 2008 also.

Built-in Sharp Carousel II Microwave Convection Oven died.


There are a couple of safety thermostats in the oven to shut down power if something overheats. One is on the magnetron tube (the microwave source), the other is on the cooking cavity. These sometimes go bad. There's also a power line fuse that may have failed, or become loose in its mounting clips. These can be tested with an ohmmeter; they should all measure very close to zero ohms if they're good.

Another possibility is that the control circuit board in the oven may have failed. I have worked on several Sharp ovens where the power transformer for the board has gone bad for no good reason. If the board goes bad the oven may appear to be dead as well.

Microwave servicing is best left to professionals. If you're thinking of keeping this one, take it to a service shop (or call for home service) and get an estimate. Then decide whether to repair or replace.

Hope this has helped a little. Thanks for using Fixya!

The paint (or whatever it is covering the bottom)


Check the 3 wheels on the circular plastic part that's fitted below the turntable.
It sounds like they may need some filing down. Run your fingers around the wheels to see if there are any sharp bits of plastic that could be cutting into the paintwork on the base.

Clean out the base of your oven and apply a thin film of vaseline to each of the 3 wheels. This will help rotation in future.
Remember to keep cleaning out any excess food particles that may lodge below the turntable, as these will eventually slow down or stop the rotation, which in turn means that your food is not heated evenly throughout!!!

Microwave exploded.


Did it make a popping noise, like a .22 cal pistol? Probably one of the larger capacitors on the power supply blew up.
