Unhappy Changing microwave in 3200 SCR

I want to change the microwave in my 3200 SCR. The problem is that the original samsung is only about 9 1/2 inches tall, I cant find anything that small. I don't want to change any counter top or cupboard space, anybody have any ideas. The admiral is even willing to replace with a toaster oven?!?! Not too sure about that plan.....jesse

Hi I had the same problem with the micro wave oven in my 3000CSR. (I just could not fined a unit small enough too fit in) I am in Australia (240 v) I purchased the Maxum last year from the US and the micro wave with every thing else is 110 v. what I did was use the original Samsung smaller frame and retro fitted all the equipment out of the slightly large unit into it , every thing fitted straight in, now I have the original frame that fits into the opening with 240 v running gear, mined you I am an electrician, and would not suggest doing this if you have no competent or skills in this area ( the Dona micro wave oven came from a curb side collection ,so with a bit of recycling I saved a little head ache and helped the planet.)

Shame. That was about the only 9.5" (0.5 cu ft.) around that I saw. The closest I could find to that was a 10 1/4" here; http://www.ajmadison.com/cgi-bin/ajm...tml?mv_pc=ysho

Do you think you could get the original repaired?

Maybe repair is the way to go.....but I was hoping that a new one would fit. Price wise, new over repair, but may have to repair....

You're right, repair will probably cost more than a new unit but a retrofit of a new larger model would be no fun either. Wht's the model number of the existing one? Maybe some snooping with that could produce soem better results?

Sorry for the long delay I took some pics of what is inside of the M / Wave but I haven’t worked out how to use the new format for the pics !help, any way the only moving parts are 1 the plate drive motor and 2 the exhaust fan(upper front r.h.s.) I suspect the little exhaust fan may be hitting something inside. Apart from the 2 x motors there are only limit switches, thermal switches, a globe, the temp/time controller and the M /wave modulator I will try and get the pics up so you can see what I mean! help help how I load them lol

"It looks like there's lightning (arcing) inside my microwave":

When you see arcing inside your microwave, it's because of food or liquid left in the cavity or on the wave-guide cover: If the wave guide has any burn spots, replace it and clean the unit well. If the cavity has any burn spots, spot-sand it smooth and touch it up with microwave interior paint. Note… If there are any burn holes in the cavity, don't use the unit-seek help from a qualified appliance repair technician.
