Need replacement parts or new microwave for Thermador SMW272ZP

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!!!

SOURCE: Same issue with my Thermador Microwave!

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.

SOURCE: Need replacement microwave for 6 yr. old Thermador MBBS microwave

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.

SOURCE: I need to buy a new MBBS Thermador Microwave

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!

Replacement or fix


just replaced our 6 year old Thermador MBBS ($750) with a GE JES2051SNSS from Home Depot ($179). The bottom guide piece from the Thermador bolted right on the bottom of the GE and positioned the new unit so the front trim piece fit perfectly.

Where can I find a replacement tray for an Emerson microwave MW8779W?


I've checked the places where I normally get parts, and also checked online. It looks like the manufacturer no longer supplies the original part. This means you either need to replace the oven, or see if a suitable tray for another oven might be available. This site is often mentioned as a good place to check, although I've never tried them myself. You could also check for appliance service shops or parts stores in your area that might be able to supply a generic tray that might work.

Good luck on your search and thanks for using Fixya!

I need to replace the waveguide in my Thermador MBBS / 01 microwave.


Waveguide "cover"I presume? The waveguide is part of the chassis and cannot be replaced.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

Thermador Microwave Oven Model MBBS Serial No FD 8402000337 Runs but no longer heats food. Deep growling sound Light flashes from behind 4.25 x 5.5 " metal plate on right vertical side of oven...


Oh dear, I hope the magnetron still works. That plate you describe is called the Waveguide Cover. This cover must be kept clean otherwise the food particles will carbonize and cause exactly what you have described.
Contact the manufacturers web site for a supplier in your area or look on ebay, espares.co.uk depending on your location.
When it has been changed, I hope the magnetron/aerial is OK.

Is there a replacement microwave for thermador MBBS that fits MT30S trim kit?


Thermador doesn't make one, but we found the GE JEB1860SM1SS from Home Depot fit perfectly. For only $259. The repair to fix our Thermador was $618. It was only 5 years old. I couldn't believe it already went out. I won't be buying anymore Thermador appliances.

My thermador mbbs needs to be replaced, but is part of the 3 in one built in wall unit. Does anyone have any new or recent advice on the closest match?? Help! Our $50 micro at our office is 8 yrs old and...


How old is the wall unit? Sometimes it may be easier to repair than to find a replacement, and microwaves are fairly easy to fix.

Let me know if you want to diagnose what could be wrong and repair.

I need to buy a new MBBS Thermador Microwave


I spent the better part of three days trying to find a microwave that will fit and it's hard because so many are on line only. Last night I successfully installed the 2.2 cu. ft. GE profile counter top unit with inverter technology. The unit is an exact match, the Thermador even fits in the GE box with the styrofoam! I installed the venting materials for the side and rear vents and the platform at the bottom. I put the clips and decorative molding on and it's perfect! I found it in stock at Lowe's for $198. I took me about 45 minutes total to install. If I can do it, anyone can - 48 year old mom with 5 kids!
