Question about Sharp R-1502 Microwave Oven
We have this microwave in our camper and the last time out some of the buttons no longer gave a beep when pressed or made a difference in the display. We were able to use it off and on until all of the buttons became inoperable. When we got home I removed the cover to see if something had a loose connection. Everything seemed to be in order so I plugged it in and everything worked just fine for the 10 minutes or so that I played with it. I set the time and left it plugged it in with plans on using it to help with supper. At suppertime I pressed the clear button and nothing. Other buttons work but the stop/clear won't function. This is what it was doing while camping and the more I mess with it the more buttons fail. I left it unplugged all night and in the morning plugged it in and the stop/clear button worked. I put a cup of water in punched up a time 1:11 and pressed start. It started up but when I went to stop it by pressing the stop button once again it wouldn't work. I opened it to stop it then closed it up and now the start button is inoperable again. This thing can't have 5 hours on it so I know it isn't worn out. Any ideas? Thanks in advance, Rick
I had this problem too:
it turns out that it (apparently) just needed some 'warm-up' time!
After being plugged in for about 15 to 30 minutes,
the buttons suddenly "came to life"...
Note that when it's flashing 88:88 you are supposed to _start_ with the 'Stop/Clear' button. After that, set the clock (press "Clock", enter the time with the number pad, then press Clock again).
Hope that helps.
