Convection/Microwave needs to be replaced

The hits just keep on coming. My RV is about six years old and I'm having some maintenance issues. One is that the convection/microwave combo oven by Sharp has suddenly decided to break down. I need to replace it, especially since we are liveaboards. I found the same model on Amazon for $563.73.

I'm just wondering if anyone else may have gone through this and found a better oven to replace it with. Besides shopping Camping World and Amazon, I'm not sure where else to buy the RV convection/microwave.

Your thoughts?

What model is it? Actually what is more to the point, what are it's dimensions and what wattage do you need? Home Depot has Convection / Microwaves, so does Lowes and Best Buy.

The oven I have is the Sharp R-1874F which is 29.5" x 15". Yes, of course Home Depot ad Lowes and Best Buy has convection/microwaves but I guess I assumed I had to stick to a RV type retailer thinking it was a speciality item to have one of this size. I'll look at these other outlets to see if I can find a better price or one of better quality.

PPL motorhomes is where we got ours from. Only had a microwave and switched it out with a convection microwave. About $400.00 and free shipping.

I bought an exact replacement convection/oven microwave that came in my RV at best buy! Retail was stupid money- like $700 plus...
I bought the one at best buy on clearance for $138.00 plus tax! Do some research.... Maybe you will run across a deal like I got!

Our 2008 373 had the original micro fail too. We replaced ours with a Samsung model SMK9175ST and couldn't be happier!

It's a convection microwave and cooks great

Thanks to everyone for their replies. It seems the door is not seating very well on the microwave. I wish I could adjust it myself. Not sure how. I know that's affecting the performance of the microwave. Ordering a replacement is $600 but the I get a shiny new one that should work for years to come. This gets frustrating.
