    The microwave in my RV has just given up the ghost,:cry: so i need a repair or replacement.
    It has to be the same model because it has the built in extracter fan.
    Does anybody in the uk have one or know where i can get a repair it is 110v.
    Cheers:thumb: Tom.

    Thanks BwB already seen this and agree it is pricey, especially as the microwave to buy in the states is 235 dollars.

    it may just be an internal fuse, as this is a very common failure point. seen loads of good microwaves binned for such a cheap part. people check the plug and thats ok so get a new one. inside there is another on the microwave board

    Good point and they aren't made for being bounced around a lot so a good chance of something come loose.

    There are still radio/tv/white goods repair shops if you hunt around a bit.

    if you can find the fault then look HERE for spare parts by name and description.

    individual parts should be cheap enough to import :thumb:

    quite possible the mains monitor fuse HERE

    Thanks for the info, can't see it being the fuse as the clock,timer and extracter are still working unless the intrnal fuse is for the microwave only. Don't know anything about these, need a man who can.:Doh:

    all depends on where you are in the country.
    i do know a sharp microwave trained engineer in lancashire although he doesn't do repairs as his occupation any more but still has a workshop and plenty of contacts.
