    Unfortunately it's a known problem, I just changed mine for a Panasonic.

    I use a £30 one from Tesco, had it a couple of years so if it goes pop it will still be good value.

    Hi Nigel
    Not sure if yours is the same as mine as I have an Autotrail Mohawk. I fitted a PANASONIC NN-E281BMBPQ Solo Microwave - Black £55 from Currys, I checked the size before buying, it fitted the surround more ore less the same as the Daewoo, I had to make minor alterations for the dimples in the wood where it's fit sits a they was slightly out and the piece of wood that goes across the top to hold it down was again in a slightly different place, so just a case of screwing it back in situ.

    Thanks for the recommendation of the Panasonic MW. We bought a nearly new 2013 Tracker and about a year later the Daewoo conked out. We sourced a replacement one but it only ever worked for a few minutes before overheating. I had to try and cook in batch mode, on for a couple of minutes then let it cool down again before using again. In April this year we got a Panasonic and fitted it as you advised and it is perfect. Worked well during a cold and wet three week trip to Wales in May and June. TOok the Daewoo home, tested it and realised the fan was not going round at all hence the overheating. Unfortunately out of its one year guarantee so will just throw it away.
