Microwave in coachmen clipper 17bh

Just wondering if anyone has had issues with high pointe microwave in the clipper? Our trailer is a 2017 and we have maybe used the microwave 6 times tops. It stopped working at the end of the season last year. It seems like itís working as it runs and such but doesnít actually heat up anything. Has anyone managed to swap out the microwave with something cheaper from like Walmart or something as the replacement Iíve seen is $150usd for the same vs $60 for one from Walmart. Is there anything you can do with the trim to hold a regular microwave to stay or anyone know the fix for the high pointe microwave?

I would think you could make one fit. I've never used the microwave in my trailer.

Sounds like it may just need a new magnetron. If you remove the one in it you should be able to order a new one. Any appliance repair shop can test it for you. It is usually behind a door on the oven interior and easy to remove. They run about 30-45 dollars.
