Dim display on microwave


either a bad or failing display or the voltage source to it is low, not usually a cheap shop repair.

We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan, cooling fan, turntable, and/or inside light operation, too.

Details of our service are at our Web site, along with a video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Feel free to contact me directly with your brand, full model number and symptoms.

I have a Sharp model R-1610 Microwave. The work/night light does not work. I"ve changed the bulbs.


Does it operate with a membrane-type touchpad?

These things seem to be problematic as the microwave ages.

They are usually replaceable, and the cost is not great. I just installed a new touchpad on an LG, and it cost $25.00 plus shipping.

Microwave hums and panel lights up when plugged in


To many variables and testing needed to explain, but my feeling is that the board is faulty. Have had that happen on a few occasions but with a different brand. On occasion ive seen microwave come on when door is opened but that was loose limit switches for the door latch. Normally humming is due to a faulty magnatron, but it can also be from incorrect voltage onto the magnatron due to the faulty board. Need to concider if repair cost is worth it even though Sharp is excellent microwave.If you do, i would start with the board.

The Display is Dim. Hard to read the numbers.


I have the same model and problem. The time display is totally unreadable. Looking for a solution as well. I suspect given the cost (I believe around $60), it's time for a new one. Anyone have any suggestions or easy repair ideas?
