Like I didn't have enough to do already, the OEM Sharp microwave convention oven died last week. I shouldn't complain, I can't believe it lasted that long.

Liz found another Sharp that is almost identical. Model R-930AK-P at Home Depot for about $400. It is the exact same width and depth. The height is about 1/2 inch shorter. The feet on the bottom even fit into the recesses in the mounting shelf! It fits right in. You have to lower the top trim about 1/2 inch to cover the hole again. Thumbs Up





OEM unit was rated 700 watts microwave, 1400 watts convention. Did a poor job on popcorn but the convection function was good. New one is 900 watts microwave and is noticeably better.

A quick and easy replacement. Hopefully the new one will last like the old one!

My "stainless steel" range hood was rusted so I took it out, I actually don't miss it. (I didn't think to refinish it like Dave R did.)

Actually, Liz spent some time looking for the one that fits. One of the reasons I posted the model is that Home Depot only carries it online, might have been overlooked. Well worth the search, so easy to install! Thumbs Up

Yep, that's it Keven, thanks. Right now I have my eye on a 1200 watt microwave with inverter technology. It will fit closely in the same spot as the old one but I will probably have to put some wood trim around the outer edges. Are there any problems with running a 1200 watt microwave in the Barth?

No problem with that wattage, however if you are using an inverter, not to be confused with microwave "inverter technology", this is the DC-AC inverter) make sure it is a "true sine-wave" type. The cheaper inverters (modified sine wave) do not have a compatible output for microwaves and the power of the microwave will be greatly reduced, it will not harm it just much lower power!

Thanks MWrench. We do not use an inverter in our coach. The microwave inverter technology allows a steady stream of power for cooking instead of cycling on and off at full power. Believe I will give this a shot.
