Question about Sharp R-319FW Microwave Oven
If the lights are attached to a circuit board behind the front panel, it is possible that this has come adrift and is sitting back from it's design position - this is relatively easy to solve and is a relatively common problem especially if the oven has been often moved around or if buttons have been pressed a little too hard. Possibly a supply voltage fault could cause this, especially if the lights in question are incandescent bulbs rather than LED's, however if the whole oven appears to function fine apart from dim lights, then this is unlikely to be the problem. HOWEVER, unless you have a reasonable knowledge of this sort of equipment, I would not recommend carrying out a repair yourself as microwave ovens are notorious for injuring amateur repair personnel due to high voltages stored in various electronic components even after unplugging the machine. Recommendation is to get it to a service agent - If you are confident that you can safely open the cover, then please do so just to see if the small circuit board where the lights should be has shifted - only touch things inside the cover if you are absolutely sure you know what you are doing. If this appears to be the problem then either get it repaired professionally (should be a five minute job at most), or ask me for more details if you feel you want to try yourself.
