Q:

how to repair my microwave R-1502

A:

Thank you for being Sears’ valued member and for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your question about your microwave. I am so sorry it has stopped heating food. I know what a time saver the microwave is and I am sure you want this issue fixed quickly.  In this case I recommend you have the microwave serviced by a qualified technician.

We do not give diagnostic or repair information on microwave ovens because they are inherently dangerous to service. Microwaves contain high voltage internal components that can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is unplugged from the power supply. Special equipment is needed to work on a microwave starting with an anti-static wrist strap grounded to the microwave to even test components in it. Even minor door repairs and adjustments can cause microwave leakage, and a microwave shielding leakage test MUST be performed using a survey meter after ANY/ALL microwave service. 

For these safety reasons I strongly recommend having this repair completed by a qualified service technician. You can schedule service online at www.SearsHomeServices.com or by calling 1-800-4-MY-HOME (1-800-469-4663). Here at SearsPartsDirect.com we love to help you with your repairs, but our expert advice is that microwaves are just too dangerous for a do-it-yourself project. 

Thank you for your understanding in this matter and I hope we can help you with any other questions and repairs in the future. Thank you for choosing Sears.

Q:

When I SHUT my door it will turn on. Sharp R1502

A:

Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your questions about your Microwave. I am so sorry to hear that the microwave has stopped working. I know what a time saver the microwave can be and how inconvenient it is when it isn't working. 
 
I can appreciate wanting to diagnose and repair the microwave yourself, however I strongly recommend against it. We do not give repair information on microwave ovens because they are inherently dangerous to service. Microwaves contain high voltage internal components that can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is completely unplugged. You need special equipment to work on a microwave starting with an anti-static wrist strap grounded to the microwave to even test components in it. Even minor door repairs and adjustments can cause microwave leakage, and a microwave shielding leakage test MUST be performed using a survey meter after any microwave service.

Q:

Sharp r-1502 1000watt microwave

A:

I am sorry you are experiencing difficulties with your Microwave. Microwaves contain high voltage internal components that can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is completely unplugged. Door repairs and adjustments, even minor ones, can cause microwave leakage and a microwave shielding leakage test must be performed using a survey meter after any microwave service. I strongly suggest that you have this repair handled only by a qualified service technician. I have provided a link To Sears Home Services if you decide to schedule service.

The LCD board is totally isolated and the capacitor is not charged. The microwave is not plugged in as well. I am a qualified service technician. I am in need of the schematic for the LCD board so that the LCD view angle can be changed to order for it to be functional. The problem has already been narrowed down to the view angle, failing LCD control IC, or a failing LCD. I am merely looking to service the unit so that it does not end up in the landfill.

 I know that it can be very difficult to have issues with your microwave.  However, Microwaves contain high-voltage components that can retain a lethal electrical charge of up to 2200 VAC -- even when the microwave is unplugged. Repairs and adjustments, even minor ones such as , can cause microwave leakage. A microwave shielding leakage test should be performed after any microwave service. It is for these safety reasons that we are unable to guide you in microwave repairs and instead recommend scheduling service with a qualified service technician. If you would like to schedule service, just click on this link: Sears Home Service.  If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

I AM a qualified technician (if you would have bothered reading the posted reply above) and have worked on microwaves. I do not need any guidance on this repair, I would appreciate an electronic schematic for the LCD board. If you can't or will not supply the information needed, simply say so and I can quit wasting my time and yours as well. Thanks for looking out for my safety (the capacitors are not charged as declared in my previous post that must not have been read) and stating the obvious though.

Jeremy, I apologize for the miscommunication. I did not see your second post before I answer the question. As for the technicial informaton that you need for the microwave, we do not have access to this. Because most of our questions are not from qualified technician, we do not provide this information, so it is relavant for us to have it. It is possible that Sharp can provide this. I would suggest that you contact them. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
