Default Microwave / convection oven in my Super C

I have a 2007 Gulfstream Super C that I have owned since it was new. I generally use a surge guard, but since I had the unit plugged into my own 50 amp outlet at my home I did not. When I was getting the rig ready for the next outing I realized there were several appliances not working. What concerns me most is the microwave convection oven. Itís an Amana model AMV6177AAB microwave / convection oven and it complete dead. I checked the breakers, and I tested the outlet where the microwave is plugged in and it is hot.
Any suggestions?

They say that appliances these days only last 10 years. They also say the death of most appliances starts with a power surge. You are over the line on both it seems. I think you need to go shopping.... microwaves are disposable.

If you have the ability I can lead you to a place for parts. My experience tells me its the main board. That sounds scary but it is not. It's the board with the display and the contacts (or buttons) for control. If the microwave was on when the surge happened then I would suspect the magnetron and control board but really the control board is not hard to change.


EDIT: Ran parts. No longer available. It was made by Whirlpool. So NEVERMIND

Mine Amana quit working in my GS 6331 Super C last month. I was running the generator and it was low on fuel. Generator shut down while microwave was running. After a refuel could not get the Microwave back on.It had a electrical type smell coming from it. No power, nothing. Ended up going to Lowes and buying a new Micro but opted out for the convection oven.

Have replaced main boards before and not too bad of a job but the cost sometimes is not worth it on a 10yr old appliance.

I agree! That smell usually indicates the magnetron cooked. I agree that it's not worth it to fix a 10 yr old unit. I would have to have the convection oven or a gas oven (I don't have a gas oven) for cooking. I can't cook with a microwave, I can only reheat some things.

It sounds like the space for these units are petty standard? Easy to find a new one that will fit?

Because you started that numert appliances were not working It would seem to be a common problem but in addition I believe you’ll find that there is an internal fuse in the micro/ convection oven.

Mr T is correct. There are fuses that will blow up before you burn any magnetron.

That would be the first thing I would check for if the circuit breaker did not kick off. I have a Dometic and I had to replace a fuse on it.

But being connected to a 50 amp source does not mean anything. My coach has to have 50 amp preferably if I want to run every appliance on the coach.

Default Yes, Sorry I forgot all about it!

These guys are correct. The fuse should have blown to protect the unit. You will see that the fuse is white and not clear glass. It is a special "Ceramic Fuse". I have seen them in the hardware section of ACE hardware and other independent hardware stores. Be sure to use the same value that came out and it MUST be a Ceramic Fuse.
