As far away as your authorized servicer is, it's the only answer unless you want to pay for the repair yourself.

Chances are they will replace the control unit as opposed to fixing it. Hopefully it won't fail again.

You can save a possible wait for the part by asking them if they have the control unit for your model it in stock.

Sometimes you can make an appointment to have a shop do the swap while you wait, considering the drive.

We actually repair these control panels for customers nationwide with our guaranteed $39.95 service if you think that's an option of interest.

Feel free to contact me directly.

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

The control panel of my sharp grill 2 convection microwave oven is very dim


Hi,
Dimmed light might be caused by a slight contact between the panel's connector and the mainboard. Or, there is a dimmer option (feature) in the menu. Depends on model. Some of Panasonic microwave ovens are equipped with such a feature.
Regards,
Dan

No! I'am afraid not, the problem is in the keypad control board, the whole assembly must be replaced, the part alone will cost around $100.00 or more depending on make and model.

Nothing happens..


If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

I would suspect it needs a new high-voltage capacitor and a fuse.

If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Actually, we also have the full service manual for this model on our site, linked above.

Microwave


I wiggled the ribbon cable between the control board and the intermediate circut board. The LCD came back for an instant. I am sure it is this ribbon cable. It looks like it is held on with adhesive. How can it be impossible to repair if people are offering to do it less than 40.00 dollars to fix it? Someone must be selling a replacement ribbon cable that will work.
