Poor design by a usually good manufacturer.
Same comments as many others. Purchased in July 2018 from Domayne, Kotara NSW. Clock races ahead. Needs to be reset after a few weeks. Oven lamp is strobing/flickering. Food will be overcooked unless time or power is reduced below those given in instruction book. Where do I buy replacement oven lamp?

Works OK, but 2 irritating faults.
This microwave has good features, Inverter technology for accurate Microwave watts output, but the buttons are sometimes hard to press. However, as many others have noted on here, the clock gains time, so is not accurate (so we just ignore that as a clock). However, after just 2 years use, the LED lamp inside the microwave is flickering badly, and sometimes goes out completely during cooking, which is NOT what you want if watching milk or soup etc. We have had the Sharp Microwave R395EBS since September 2018, but now find that after a few minut...es use, the LED lamp in the microwave flickers rapidly. I have researched this issue, This seems to be a common problem with the original LED lamp (9KL70000002369) across 20 different Sharp models. It has been replaced by a 9KL70000013692, according to the RMS COMPONENTS web site, so I suspect this is a KNOWN problem by Sharp (otherwise why would they change the spec and number of this part. This is probably the most common complain on this and similar models, and is most likely due to a component inside the base of the lamp that changes the 250V A/C to the 3V or so needed for the LED to work, but is lower spec than needed inside a microwave, that needs components with a wider operating temperature range, so that it does not fail prematurely. LED lamps should typically last for 50,000 Hours use, and this one does NOT.

Was an amazing microwave until It broke and needed to go through warranty
Was an amazing microwave until It broke and needed to go through warranty. They Just make you go around in circles. Even though the microwave is sparking and feels like it will blow up.

Good value for money!
This microwave works perfectly. It has a sleek minimalist appearance. Easy to clean, easy to use. The only thing it doesn't do is keep time very well, but then again that is what clocks are for

Questions & Answers
Why the light flickers
It means it's at the end of its life. I'm about to have mine repaired (under warranty) after just under 1 year. Can't be replaced on your own - time to call a service agent.
