Question about Sharp R-425LS Microwave Oven

1 Answer

I just purchased an 1100 watt Sharp R420-LW microwave. The bloody thing has a cord that extends literally 1.5 feet, and won't plug into an outlet I have that is a little less than 3 feet away from the unit (this is idiotic). I need to purchase an extension cord with a 3 prong female at one end and a 3 prong male at the other end, the cord should be 3 feet long, I assume 12 gauge. Where can I find a proper extension cord for this unit?
