Sharp half pint

Hi, I have a problem with a Sharp half pint microwave. I bought off Ebay- got here and plugged er in, it came on,when I set the time to run something "popped" in back now won't come on at all. Could it be a fuse? I have older recepticles and had to use an adapter so figure that's it. Caused the fuse to blow because no ground. HELP

    Hey jsrock- I cannot seem to find the fuse!! I followed the line from cord and saw nothing that looks like a fuse-could it be the green thing UNDER the micro ? If you could-post a pic. Thanks, Stormie

The fuse should be located on an input line filter board INSIDE the microwave. You will need to unplug and remove the outside case to get to it. Simply follow where the power cord comes in and you should see a fuse mounted on a small circuit board somewhere. This is the line filter. The fuse should be a 20 amp appliance fuse that you can purchase at any hardware store. DO NOT attempt to re-energize the oven with the cover removed. There are dangerous voltages present in the high voltage circuit (about 13,000 - 14,000 VAC). Put the outside case back on before trying an op test. Let me know if this helps.

Sharp Half Pint Microwave Display Not Working R-120DS

the LCD is bad, 22 year later a great run that.
use flash light to it , see data there that means backlamp dead
buy new one.
THERE IS NO LCD FUSE EVER. it used low power
from he PCB (display drive logic is there only)
the PCB may have fuse or onboard solid state fuse. that self resets if shorts are removed.
if you see no fuse there, F1 F2, etc there is none.!
use the flash light test. first.. OK??
SO DOES OUR POST MEAN , ONLY lcd dead, BUT BOTTONS NOT DEAD and most beep, so beeps dead? see buttons with programmed times, like pop corn etc, do those work?
LCD dead sure makes time set hard
but gee, hit time 11 and run,
see if 11s seconds, runs the fan and Uwave maggy
cooks for 11 seconds. blind./
lots to test there before giving up.

OK only LCD is dead.

My Sharp Half Pint microwave oven is making beeping sounds about every 2 minutes. It is unplugged;I haven't used it for months. What is making this sound? It's about 18 years old.

Hi Timothy, your Microwave Sharp Half Pint, does not have any receptacle for batteries, therefore, if unplugged, it cannot generate any sound
As Robert Oliver suggests, notice that another device nearby, that if it has batteries, may be making that sound
I hope you find the origin of the beeper
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hola Timothy, tu Microondas Sharp Half Pint, no posee ning?n recept?culo para bater?as, por lo tanto, si esta desenchufado, no puede generar ning?n sonido
Como te sugiere Robert Oliver, f?jate que otro aparato pr?ximo, que si tenga bater?as, pueda estar haciendo ese sonido
Espero que encuentres el origen del emisor de pitidos
Saludos Franco Dosil

Sharp half pint microwave door latch broken - how can I fix it?

Okay. I got the Half Pint Microwave door off, opened it up, found the spring, used a Dremel to make a new point of attachment for the spring since the spring flang on the dooor was indeed broken. The door closes now and microwave turns on - but it doesn't stay on, unless I apply pressure on the top right corner of the door. So the latch is just slightly out of alignment. Will tinker with it some more. Maybe it's just a matter bumping up the lower part of the door a bit. Has anyone encountered this problem?

No numbered touch pad for use setting clock

I think on this one you press the CLOCK/TIMER pad, then enter the desired time using the 10 MINUTES, 1 MINUTE, AND 15 SECONDS pads then press CLOCK/TIMER again.

If that doesn;t work, press STOP / CLEAR then try the above again.

Let us know if it does not work.
