Customer Question

I have an old great microwave sharp R8680B and the touchpad has just gone on it after 25 years use. Is there any way of sourcing another touchpad for it?
Thank you

There is no availability for a new touch pad for your beloved microwave, THe touch pad for this has been obsolete for over 13 years, I am afraid it is time to say good bye to your old friend because of this. Sorry to be the bearer of this news to you...
