Pretty easy to change.Maybe cash and carry would be a little cheaper, or even trying an appliance dealer to see if they can get the same thing. Perhaps contacting manufacturer of microwave directly will help. (www.dometicusa.com) There was some recalls on some of the models. Are you sure it's not just sitting in an opening above the range hood. Most are just 4 screws or so, and out they come from opening above that.

How do I remove a dometic convection oven from my CRV


If you will begin to gently take apart the compartment where the Convection oven is, you will see that it is fastened in mostly by the wood/plastic framework around it.
Usually the cord is a regular one and is plugged in behind the unit. Keep in mind how you will re-attach the framework which holds it in place when you are finished.
God bless your efforts.

How do i replace the light bulb in my maytag microwave oven. the bulb broke in the socket.


The cooktop light bulb(s) is(are) located on the underside of the microwave oven, and is(are) replaceable. Remove bulb cover screw, and open the bulb cover. Replace bulb, close bulb cover, and secure with screw. Cavity light: The cavity light bulb is located behind the vent grille at the top front of the microwave oven, under the bulb cover, and is replaceable. Remove 2 screws on the vent grille, tilt the grille forward, and lift it out. Open bulb cover and replace bulb. Close bulb cover, replace vent grille, and secure with screws.

Why won't Microwave door stay shut?


We are having the same problem. Seems like latch spring is broken. We can not find any parts for this. Dometic is 3 yrs. old so no warranty. No service for it either. Keystone really took us on this

Sharp Carousel Microwave Mdl 1875 for our RV is dead


>> We also tried plugging our toaster into the microwave plug outlet, and the toaster wouldn't work in that outlet, but worked just fine in a different outlet in the RV.

This means the outlet you plug your microwave into needs to be fixed in addition to fixing the oven. Breaker? Fuse?

>> I understand from another RV forum that microwave ovens for RVs have "special circuitry and cooling features" not found in regular countertop ovens for household use.

Not really in my experience. Any microwave supplied with clean AC power and proper venting space will be fine.

But I'd bet your microwave can be fixed affordably.

The main internal things which can result in this model being dead (no display, no light when you open the door, no beep when you press a pad on the keypad) would be the 20A fuse and the magnetron temperature fuse. There could also be bad connections on the noise filter board.

Also, sometimes a power surge can cause the power to be interrupted to the low voltage transformer on the board, and I regularly repair those boards. I can also write a technical statement to your insurance company or to an RV park as needed.

At my Web site, I have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

The relevant service manuals for this model are here and here.

You can order Sharp parts from Sears or Encompass.

Contact me directly if you need more help.

Frigidaire microwave oven


Hello - This may or may not be specifically for your model, however these are generics instructions that I found.

To replace the light bulb to the over the range microwave you will need to follow the steps below:

1. To replace light bulb, first disconnect power to the microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging.

2. Remove the vent grill mounting screws.

3. Pull the vent grill away from the unit.

4. Remove the charcoal filter by pushing it inwards, then turn and pull it away from the unit.

5. Open light cover located behind filter mounting by carefully pulling up on the front edge.

6. Remove old light bulb and replace only with equivalent 30 watt bulb available from part distributor. Bulbs are also available at most hardware stores or lighting centers.

7. Replacing the microwave oven light cover by carefully pushing into place. Replace the charcoal filter. Push the vent grill back into place (engaging both the bottom and top tabs) and replace the vent grill mounting screws.


Note: DO NOT USE BULB LARGER THAN 30 WATTS.

Dometic door on convection microwave wont stay closed


Damaged or bent latch/s---unit would have to be taken apart to see if fixable or needs parts replaced.

I would Google the full model number with "parts" to see what is available for this unit.

It runs, makes a noise with vibration, but does not hear


    If you hear an unusual buzzing noise, the magnetron (the component that actually generates the microwaves) or other electronic module may be broken. This is not easily fixed; contact a service technician.
hope this helps you.please do rate me on this issue
