I have a 2007 Winnebago Journey 39K with a Sharp Insight combination microwave/convection oven. The microwave has a problem, and to be evaluated by the nearest Sharp authorized repair center it must be removed from the RV and taken to their shop.
Anyone had experience removing this unit from the RV???
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.

We've had our microwave oven (not convection combo) worked on twice... once under warranty, just this week out-of-warranty. Both times the service company told me they would come to the house to work on it rather than my removing it and bringing it to them. Many service companies now have mobile units to service appliances rather than taking the appliance to their shops (last resort).

I'd suggest you call the Sharp 800# and ask for the name & phone numbers of authorized dealers in your area until you find one that will come to you. Much less trouble for you, and less risk that you may cause additional problems removing the oven.

The microwaves and micro/convection ovens are mounted the same in a house as in an RV; no difference. Some models are an over the range and 30" wide, others are a built in model. If you insist on taking it out send me a PM and let me know which you have and I will give you instructions.

Oven Light replacement R1850A model:
Sharp Operation manual says to remove screw center top from the louver panel.
The unit is installed in a RV wooden cabinet with only front and bottom accessible.
I have removed screws from the bottom of the microwave. A full size panel swings down to change the filters. There are two bolts on the bottom. One on the right side and one on the left a little less than half way from the front. They are at a 45 degree angle. Will removing these bolts let me pull the unit forward enough to remove the screw from the louver panel? I fear that the bolts may have nuts that may fall off if unscrewed.
Thanks for any help.
Light bulb part number RLMPTA036WRE0 (30 Watt) .

If you remove these bolts, the oven will slide forward but will also come down after about 4 -6 inches out. Get someone to help you as these are not light. The bolts do not have nuts but screw into a mounting plate secured to the wall. Good luck and keep us posted.

I just took the microwave out of my 38r. The photos of the Journey I found make me think the mounting is simular. Anyway, I had to remove the trim piece from above the oven. there are 7 screws across a top brace that must be removed first. Now the bottom of the oven sits in/on a lip all the way to the back next to the wall. There were 3 screws holding the unit to the lip. After I removed those screws and a little jiggeling I had 80 lbs of oven in my arms. GET HELP with this step. Hope this helps.
