Question about Ovens

1 Answer

I have a Sharp 980 A microwave which has been working perfectly for the last few years. Now we've recently moved to another place and when we tried it a week back, there was arcing, without any metal except the turntable. Infact we removed the turntable and tried, with same result. The plastic part of the roller in the middle got burned with an aweful smell. What could be the problem? Could it be some damage during the transport or some problem with the supply?? Thanks

It was probably some damage during the transport. A microwave is an extremely dangerous appliance. Mu sincere suggestion is that you take it to a qualified repairman, have it repaired and ask for a certificate to verify that there is no radiation leaks anywhere.

How do i change the bulb in a brother hi speed cooker microwave . It is about 30 years old and works very well


If no access from the front you will have to get at it from the back. Remove the back covers, the light socked will probably be held in place by a few screws or clamps. remove the entire assembly as one unit, replace the bulb and re-install.

How to change light bulb in microwave?


Found this post on another fixya-type site: below is the link..
Here's a repeat of Kai's instructions so you don't have to scroll down. I just replaced mine and it was a snap. Just a few Phillips screws and a few tugs. No need to pull the unit completely out as you can access the bulb after it's about half way. No need to disconnect any wiring harness except pulling the bulb out of its socket. I used the 10w (G4 12V) replacement bulb from Home Depot at $6. The light is a bit brighter but there've been no problems with fuses.


1) Turn off power to the unit
2) Open the lower oven door
3) Remove the side trim screws and pull the trims down and out.
4) Remove 2 screws on the sides of the control panel.
5) Open the Microwave door. Remove the 3 screws on the Air Vent Plastic Cover on top of the microwave. You can then remove the Air Vent Cover by pushing the control panel up and pull out slightly at the bottom.
6) Remove the 4 screws on the Air Vent Plastic Cover on top of the lower oven and remove the Air Vent Cover. (You may have to remove the left under side bracket of the Microwave door temporarily just for the Air Vent Cover to clear the screw of the bracket. Re-secure the side bracket of the Microwave door panel as the front panel may fall)
7) Remove the 2 screws which held the Microwave unit in place behind the Air Vent Cover on step 6.
8) Wiggle the Microwave unit out about half way to expose the light bulb unit on top center
9) Wiring to the Control Panel will prevent you from pulling the Microwave unit out any further. And you don't want to do that as the unit may fall. Space is cramped, but working carefully with pliers you should be able to release the springs which held down the light bulb unit and change the bulb.

Good Question. I work on all brands of appliances, and I swear by KitchenAid-Whirlpool appliances. That being said, I do not recommend oven-microwave combinations, because the ovens will last 30 to 40 years, but the microwaves start having major repairs from 6-10 years on. I would bite the bullet and put in a separate Panasonic microwave (with an inverter) and a seperate KitchenAid Oven. You also need to install a 2000 Joule or higher surge protector, for your microwave oven. Panasonic microwave ovens are better than the KitcheAid ovens at this time.
I would suspect that the touch panel-control board failure may have been caused by the repairman, just because the timing is a little too close to the mag repair. No way to tell you for sure, and I myself have had control board failures the same day that we changed a light bulb, so anything is possible. Usually a factory defect is going to show up before 8 years. In the last 4 years in the greater Seattle area, 70 - 80% of our business is from power surges hitting the electonics in the different appliances, so this could also have been what has caused your repairs. On a 240 volt Oven, the only way to protect it from power surges is to have a whole-house surge protector installed on your house electrical panel. You still need to have individual surge protectors, above 2000 joules, for your appliances that are 120 volts. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Hi, do you still have this microwave? For the case you want to throw it away: may I kindly ask you to leave the mounting frame to me? I do posess the same machine (bought with my kitchen in 2001), built in my kitchen board. When we moved last year, the workers who teared down the kitchen furniture, broke a part of the frame. Since than, I have asked in many places if it is possible to buy this part of the frame, but only found one shop. There I was told that I have to buy the complete frame, and it is so expensive that I flinched from buying it. So my idea is that I will pay you for the frame, if you agree with this.
Please contact me for further information. Thanks in advance!
