paulcats02 posted a topic in Small Appliance RepairHello all. Am having a bear of a time trying to find a simple part (the door open key i.e. latch lever) for a Sharp "steamwave" AX1100 (microwave grill steam countertop combo). While there are many other similar items for other manufacturers, the 10-12 appliance parts websites i checked don't have them for this model nor does amazon or ebay... with the exception of a few sites in the UK who seem to be out of stock and or can't ship to the states. It seems like Sharp is not so popular or commonplace when it comes to kitchen appliances at least not here in the US. Maybe there is another model that is compatible that the part would work from. I read that Dacor microwaves are made from Sharp parts though that is not verifiable; the other half is maybe am looking in the wrong places. Was able to find an exploded view of the door panel and it shows the part is a LANGTA525WRPZ. Sharp insists we take the unit in to a service center to get it fixed for no less than $100 even though it's probably a $5 part and this thing's a beast at 50+ pounds (either that or i am getting weaker with age... or both). Will try to either engineer a repair of the part (the plastic peg that pushes the latch up broke off) or just pony up the dough to take it in. Unless someone knows where on this green & blue rock to find a part! Paul
hdheetderks posted a topic in Water HeatersI need a replacement main circuit board (it has the micro processor and a bunch of interface circuits) for this unit. This model has never been sold in the US. I bought it in Japan. It is specially designed for Japanese style bathtubs and includes a separate 50,000 BTU heater with a recirculating pump which keeps the water in your tub steaming hot. It also has a water level detector so that it automatically refills the tub as you scoop water out of it as is done in the Japanese style of bathing. Now the processor board has been blown out due to one of the electrolytic capacitors leaking juice which ate off a ground line on the PCB and caused the logic board to see -30 volts from the fan motor control circuit. Any ideas as to how I can get a new main board for this thing? I have made a very good circuit and functional diagram of the unit, and made a number of measurements regarding the operation of various subsystems if anyone would have any interest in them.
