Question about Thermador MBBS Microwave Oven
I've been told they no longer manufacture replacement parts for my 6year old Thermador Combination Oven Model SMW272ZP. The microwave has crapped out and I would like to find a new matching microwave to fit the same opening. Any thoughts other than just checking dimensions on the internet and crossing my fingers that what I might find will really fit? Thermador offers no help!!!

You may want to look into the possibility of a "panasonic" (specifically a "genius" model) microwave unit that should fit there nicely. most of those Thermador 3 component units had the m/w built by panasonic. (though you'll not get them to tell you that)
I'd like to add, I find it unlikely your's is "burned beyond repair". what is the problem, if you'd care to elaborate.
Perhaps your m/w can be saved, or revived.

I have the Thermador MBBS/01 in a Theramdor oven/warming drawer/microwave unit. When I was told it would be $600 to repair it, I called thermador & they don't make a replacement. Thermador CS was even rude about it. I searched & searched for a microwave that would fit & found a GE model JEB1860M1SS at Home Depot for $259.00. My husband & I just installed it & the frame kit inside, on the old Thermador micorwave fit PERFECT! I could not believe it. I thought we would either have to settle for something looking tacky in the hole or buy a whole new unit. Looks like it came in that unit.

Fix it Don is a genius! I went to Sears, picked up an Elite Microwave for $199 and switched out my old MBBS Thermador. To fix the old one was going to cost $495, and a new MBES was $649 plus another $300 or so for the trim kit. So I wound up saving a lot of money.
It is obvious that the Elite and Thermador are virtually the same units. However, the backs of the units are slightly different, so you will have to use Tin snips or a sabre saw to make some cuts in the rear ducts of the trim kits.. Also, the cord is a few inches shorter so have an extension cord at the ready. But it was very easy. Also, note that the Kenmore elite logo on the front is attached by tape and easy to remove!
