I have a Sharp Carousel microwave/convection. It's boxed in pretty good. After making New Orleans style dirty rice for 25 minutes, it completely shut down. The cabinet around it was really hot. No smoke smell. No lights, power, nothing. I tried resetting the breakers (none were popped). It is bolted down. My next step is to take it out and try it outside the RV. I also need to test the electical socket.
Should the box be better ventilated? The food stored in the cabinet above was pretty hot. Has anyone drilled ventilation holes in the side wall?
To make matters worse, the rice was too spicey for our taste.
