Default GS factory convection microwave....

We just purchased an '02 8378 and the control panel on the convection microwave doesn't read properly. It appears as though the numerical display is shot. Our dealer does not have a source for parts for this unit and can find no one to service it.

We are looking for suggestions for repair, parts or a quality convection replacement that doen't require extensive modification.

Any help would be appreciated.

Check with RV surplus businesses as they will either have the parts or a fairly innexpensive replacement unit (overstock) that can be swapped out.

BTW, what brand and model is it?

A number of convection microwaves are available, try Home Depot, Sears, and other appliance stores.
Our Dometic went out, but was in the 3 year Dometic warranty. We took it to a dealer and replaced it with the same model, only newer.
Fortunately, the new model worked a lot better.

Also, you might try Camping World, they have a site on line.

What is your make & model?

Try William E. Miller at microwavedisplay.com
They fixed mine for $39.95 with a one year guanrantee.

Default Thanks, perfect timing....

Just yesterday I spoke with our dealer about our service work on the coach. Things are moving along well, a couple of parts are still in transit.

They had investigated the microwave and could not find anyone local to service it. They are suggesting a replacement unit. I visited this site this morning and will contact them today.

This may save us $400 or more. I will post the results.

Thank you again.

Try this site for appliance repair parts. http://www.repairclinic.com/Home.aspx I have ordered from them in the past and have had good service. I know my GS has a Sharp and upon checking they had a good selection of circuit boards for the Sharp models. Good Luck
