$#%*! Frigidaire Convection Microwave

Ok, after almost five years of putting up with this hard to operate, understand, and make work POS it is time to have it find a new home.

Anyone have suggestions on what to replace it with ? I know it is a standard size no mounting but the issue in the RL is that the left side where the door is hinged is right up against the pantry. No extra room for a door to swing open unless the hinge is offset like the Frigidaire is.

Cost isn't really an issue since the coach is now home, we just want a unit that WORKS !!! 😂

As usual, thanks in advance !!

Vaughan,

I replaced my POS Microwave with a GE Profile Convection Microwave about a year ago.
If fits the height and width perfect with no modification to the solid surface backsplash under it.
You are right, I have to modify the cabinet on the hinge side, a little work to radius of the square edge of the cabinet for clearance and then stain it.
Everybody that has seen it has not noticed the cabinet modification until I point it out to them showing what had to be done to fit the microwave.
I and not a big fan of GE appliances in general but I love my GE Profile Convection Microwave in my Redwood, it works great.
I have Microwaved a variety of things and baked quite a bit in it, it bakes great. Much better than using the gas oven to bake.

I am on my second Frigidaire. First one never worked and this new one will work to cook other than microwave when it feels like. We had the 1st replaced at the rally in 16 and will hoprfully have this one changed in 18. Dont cook or bake in it alot but have to deal with a full fury when it don work

We replaced ours with a Furrion. Got a great deal on it from a dealer when someone didn't pick up a special order. Fits in same place without modifications. No issues with the door swing

Just about the exact same for us. The wife thinks they just cleaned up the first one when we were at the service center after the rally in 16 and told us they installed a new one.

Maybe they just traded them between us as the second one does not work well.

Maybe you have my old one. I watched then unpack this
One so I no it was new. Was not happy to see the same brand go in. It did work for about a month like it should.
Now is hot and miss. I thought about asking if it was operator error but quickly threw that idea out as I was hungry

We had our changed out at the '16 Rally. The replacement acted up right after we left the Rally and has acted up since. We never had problems with the Microwave side, only when Convection Cooking, would preheat up to temp then shut off any heating and would just slowly cool.

Microwave side works fine in ours also, its the convection that is flaky. Seems to be common with these. Will look for a replacement one of these days.

Our original was replaced just before the 2013 rally (that sounds like long time ago) & so far has worked as good, as far we know, nothing to compare it to. There is however a very steep learning curve that as from what I taste the DW has finally got figured out.
