Sharp convection microwave

The Sharp convection microwave in our '96 34' Excella died yesterday. Do any of you folks have a clue where I can find a direct replacement?

Seems like Sharp discontinued this model a couple of years ago, and none of the new models fit the hole in the cabinet....We're on a trip for another month or so, and trying to find a simple solution to this...

I can modify the cabinet, to fit another one, but not until we return and have access to my shop....


I've tried etrailer.com, and all the other links I have but so far no luck..

Thanks!

Larry

Our 2015 came with Sharp convection microwave.. POS! died 9 months after warranty (12 mos). Dealer suggested local repair shop. They said Sharp doesn't mfc repair parts. I called Sharp. Same answer. AS must have got a super deal to buy Sharp.
Why didn't they use Dometic? All the other appliances, frig, stove, ACs are Dometic.

Sharp coonvection microwave

PPL Motorhome is my go to source.

Can also try the factory for recommendation.

Our Sharp convection/microwave died this week. Checked most all retailers in So Cal, no luck. Found a match at Walmart.com. It's on the way. Maybe they have a match for your rig. This is the unit I ordered.https://www.walmart.com/ip/Sharp-R83...Black/44122378
I have used PPL for other items, they are great to deal with.
Good Luck.

One thing I did find during my search for a replacement was that almost all of the countertop models cannot be safely built into a cabinet, as there is no way to vent the heat out of the cabinet.
I finally found a "Mauve" brand that is used in the marine industry, that fit, and is approved for in cabinet installation.
More information can be found at http://rvbuildernews.com/mauve-micro...-oem-builders/

We like ours even better than the Sharp convection/microwave that we had...

For whatever it's worth..

We've had ours for nearly a year now, and have been satisfied with it. It's a little different to operate than the Sharp, but that is no problem.
Good luck. ...
