Sharp Convection Microwave Oven

Has anyone actually replaced their Sharp Convection Microwave Oven with another brand/model? If so, what did you replace it with? Mine has totally died and I'd like to replace it with something other than another Sharp, but I'll have to pay someone to replace it for me.

i have seen them replaced with other brands....visit owes or home depot or appliance store and find what you like
measure yours and find one that fits...ours now is HUGE so i would think its close to a normal sized convection oven

bjyoung29,
If your problem with your Sharpe microwave convection oven is that the power turns off after 59sec, you may want to consider repair. These ovens are notorious for burning out the damper motor (a $35 cost for a new motor). Many of us who have had this problem have elected to remove the oven and replace the motor ourselves.
hope this helps

IMO this unit is so nice we're thinking about buying another to replace the still perfect 1983 Sharp MW bought new when the house was built. I'd fix it or just replace with another.

No, I've already been through the 59 sec problem and I almost wish I had that problem right now -- at least I could just keep hitting the start button! Had to replace the damper motor on this oven about six months ago. Now I've got no power at all on the microwave, nothing happens when you press the buttons, etc. I know the ouylry is good because my hair dryer works when I plug it into the outlet. I don't believe Sharp is making this unit anymore and because so many people have had problems with the damper motor and the circuit board, I just thought it would be a good idea to replace the entire microwave with something better.

Well, my extended warranty folks (GS) said I needed to have a Sharp repair person come out and determine whether replacing a part would cure my problem before they will pay to replace the microwave. That will be more of a problem for me than just buying a new microwave and having a friend replace it for me.

Thanks for your suggestions.

A non-convection, but Sharp question....

My Mom's new to her '01 Adventurer has a Sharp standard microwave. It looks and acts like it works, but no microwave action, it doesn't warm anything. I googled her model, but haven't found any info. Anyone had that issue? And was it fixable?

MY SHARP CONVECTION/MICROWAVE KEPT BLOWING FUSES. I REPLACED THE HIGH VOLTAGE DIODE AND THE HIGH VOLTAGE CAPAITOR. WORKED FINE FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS ON THE WORK BENCH. REINSTALLED IT AND EVERYTHING SEEMED FINE AND I WAS HAPPY THEN IT BLEW THE FUSE AGAIN. AFTER 3 TIME IN AND OUT I FOUND THIS PLACE. MY UNIT WAS 9 YRS. OLD AND THIS SHARP R-1870 FIT RIGHT IN AND LOOKED THE SAME OTHER THAN A BETTER LAYOUT ON THE KEY PAD. THE CHEAPEST I FOUND BY FAR- Space Saving COMPACT APPLIANCES and more! - Swego.com

Next on my list is to buy a couple of HD TVs......
