Wanna SWAP?

I have a gently used conventional oven from my 2006 Safari FB SE....

Sounds like I'm not going to find a whole lot of people out there who have the convection microwave and hate it.

Foiled Again -

We have a Sharp in our 345 & I just love it! I want one for home. I think it’s the original 1989 & still going strong. I was intimidated by “convection”, but I’m learning. It has a “combo” setting, so you can do microwave, convection, or a mixture (that would be ideal for roasts, when I get that far). Right now, we use the combo for huge (I mean huge -- meal size) baked potatoes. So in 35 minutes we have two perfect baked potatoes.

I Love it!

I use our convection/microwave all the time and I love it. Once you start using it often, you don't need to look at the manual.

2 minute popcorn

Try egg rolls on the convection setting...
Fantastic!!!
Even the cheap ones come out crisp and flaky...not goowee.
I even go out to the Airstream to cook them at home.

But now...
On last visit to Home Depot while in Florida, I found a S/S convection/microwave on sell for $99.
And it is 1000w vs 650w for the Sharp original that was built in 1985.
(it is now in the house)

While swapping them out, I noticed lots of room in that spot.
I decided to use it to set the oven back about 8" for more elbow room.
Plus now has a small landing in front of oven.

Nailed in some 1/4 round to hold oven in place...and to keep stuff from sliding under.




Now can pass in front of oven with door open

Nice, Ted...what about heat dissipation in the smaller space? We've been looking at alternatives since our Sharp quit after only 20 years of service......currently using a cheapo micro for temporary replacement...really miss the convection option...would just scrap the gas oven if the effort wasn't too much-we just use it for storage, anyway...mike

My wife was very happy to that that our trailer came with a convection/microwave. To be honest, we haven't even used it yet. I'm having trouble with the humidity in the trailer. It makes the touch pad go 22222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222 2222222222.
When the trailer is dry, it's fine. I'm trying out a dehumidifier right now to see if that is going to help. (check the
Too humid too sleep even with A/C on post)

Scrap...
It is the same space as the old one was located, and now is more open as far as air flow, as it does not have the surround that was on the old unit.
I placed it back against the wall, and pulled it forward about 2 ".
You will be shocked at the amount of room back there that is waisted

I put up with this for a long time before learning about a man in Indiana who repairs the display units. He sent instructions for the removal of the panel, shipping instructions and he returned it repaired for less than an expensive bottle of wine. My wife and I can now use it without guessing what the panel was "asking".
Can you give me the name/contact info of the fellow in Indiana that fixed your display panel. I am having the same problem with my Sharp convection microwave. Thanks in advance.

In our stick house, we recently replaced our gas (propane) range, which after 11 years of daily use had developed a number of problems. Parts being scarce and expensive....

So, the new range, again propane, has a convection feature as part of the oven. We use it almost every day, and just adjust time and temperature downward to compensate. It's great.

When ordering our traylah, I wanted the convection oven, and was gobsmacked to find out that, not only did it require 120V, but it came at the expense of a conventional propane oven. So, for us, no good choices.

Another convection issue -- for the small Sharps that fit under a stovetop -- the turntable must turn constantly. So 9 x 9 square pans are too large. Metal round cake pans are okay when you're in convection mode. We have switched to silicone for rough treatment & light weight.

Convection = heat; nothing to do with microwave. Small but hot...

I took out my original oven. Can I use the existing electrial for that oven for a new confection oven or will I need to beef up that line? Thanks All..

The newer trailers have a dedicated 15 AMP service to the microwave oven. With the A/C using 15 amps and the microwave on, you are at the 30 amp limit for the trailer service. Some folks have reported that they can run the A/C or the microwave but not both at the same time.
I would add a dedicated line for the microwave. Use a GFI breaker.
