Microwave / convection oven failed. Has anyone replaced with this one or something different?


Recommended Posts

2023 LE2 #1309.   Our High Pointe microwave/convection oven has apparently failed.  It will only run for 2-3 minutes before shutting off.  I think we have isolated it to the actual oven because I ran an extension cord from our garage directly to the plug for the oven and it didn't change anything.  These ovens only have a one-year warranty so we are going to have to replace it.  My questions are: has anyone used a different brand and had a good experience? How difficult is it to change out?  Any suggestion on where to get one?  I've searched online and the High Pointe is not very widely available.  Rec Pro seems to be the more popular choice.  thanks in advance.

Mike - 

If you are at all "handy" you might try seeing if you can repair that thing yourself.  I've repaired a couple of ours and the parts are fairly cheap and available for most microwaves.

Just out of warranty? That is a bummer?

Yes, it is.  It seems like the components should have more than a one-year warranty.

@MikeKaren

FYI

Our home GE microwave-convention oven stopped working after using the convention oven portion a number of times.

The unit was repaired by a appliance repair person who told us to only use microwave portion as the unit is not well designed for the heat of the convention oven.

We have a stove with a convection oven and use that as the heat does not bother it.

Mike, our Oliver came with a microwave delete, the first RV we’ve owned that didn’t have one.  We don’t miss it.  The increased storage is much appreciated.

Okay, one exception to the missing part… Having burned the daylights out of it, I was reminded of my total fail with Jiffy Pop.  I do miss being able to toss a bag of Orville Redenbacher into the microwave and have unburned popcorn.  

However, I did learn the secret to Jiffy Pop is to hold the pan about 2” above the flame.
