How do I clean the inside of the microwave? It is
DO NOT use SOS pads! They are made of STEEL WOOL and will remove the protective finish inside the oven cavity. Without the protective coating, the microwave can arc internally and ruin the magnetron. Use the green scrub pads you find in the dish detergent section of your local grocery store. They are considered non-abrasive. Use the green scrub pads along with a non-abrasive cleaner such as Soft-Scrub or 409. Wipe clean with a fresh water and dry with a clean cloth.

Sharp r-1505 microwave. several segments in
Sharp had "issues" with that board (connector cable fail). That was back in 2002. Give them a call and see if they will send you a new control board (part # CPWBF070MRU0) All of the 0's are zeros.
If not, look at that ribbon connector where it's kinked, and you'll see a spot that should be repaired, ie broken wire.
Good luck with the phone call. Refer them to bulletin # MW-166.
