Well...it happened to us...

The Sharp combo microwave and convection oven died last night. No lights, no nuthin. Checked circuit, checked plug all good. Guess we are on the way to Lowes or HD. Durn it.

It did get used...A LOT!

Check to see if there is a recall on the unit. I checked ours and even though the warrenty was out I found out there was a recall and received more money back than a new one cost. Just google the model and serial number.

It could be the fuse on the inside of the microwave.

I had a GE convection microwave and it was the power pack. Local repairman fixed it for $100 and no problems afterwards. By the way, the estimate was free as it is an easy check. You might want to consider this as it is more economical than buying a new one and trying to fit it in your enclosure.

If it is the old Sharp Model R-820 that was in hundreds of units that did not have an oven IT IS NOT AVAILABLE

I found ONE ONLINE in White and ours was black. Found a Few Sources for a Sharp R-830 in black but had to pay a dear price for it

If you use the Convection, it is better than most but in hind sight the Camping World has a Dometic that is also a Micro/Convection that fits the hole and has a new trim facing to go with it for less money

Good Luck TOM
