It was old, but big and powerful. It was from the days when people thought it was progress to be able to microwave a turkey, hence it was sized to fit a turkey. . . Interior dimensions: 15-1/2 x 15-1/2 x 10-1/4, empty weight: 57 lbs. No fuse is noted in the instruction manual. It's chart is marked "DNR".

Our prayers and thoughts are with you during your time of sorrow.
21. So young.
Is there an inherent race memory that will help you through this time? Stoves and ovens, as difficult as they can be, are actually functional, even they shall struggle through during this tme of loss.
Never gve up! Never surrender!

Sounds like the big steel ones the local 7-11 had in the 70s.When I was 10 or 11 I microwaved a can in it with no problems. But recently I tried warming a frozen packet of butter from a fast food joint in our current one.I forgot to take the foil off and it was like the 4th of July!

Fine job of keepin' there KL. I feel your pain.
Kaliste has a notable idea there; it's already got a fan! Cheers,

Just an aside from fixing a few "dead" TV's and stereo receivers, pop the panel near the line cord and usually there's a soldered in fuse.

I feel your pain. Sounds like my old Tappen Microwave. It is 21+ years old and still nuking, except the timers broken, so I have to use an egg timer.
The biggest microwave I found so far, has a 1.6 cubic ft capacity.

can you take the tt and motor out? it's a 110volt motor and plywood can make a base.

I feel your pain, but if you had bought a "Monkey Ward" special the darn thing would still be there nuking away. 27 years and still cranking out the microwaves.

As someone has said, it could be a future spray booth; only problem with that idea is that the fan is set up to pump air in, not remove it. However, if all else fails, rescue the motor/blower from it. It's a small, but powerful axial flow job that does quite well as a spray booth exhaust fan, and pretty easy to convert for that task.

I feel your pain, our family just lost our Toshiba micro after nearly 20 years sterling service, it too was larger than today's contemporaries, it will be missed.

Well, was not the grandfather-of-them-all, the "Amana Radar Range"? They were around in the early 1960's, if not earlier, correct?

Man, have these things been around that long?! I've only learned how to use one recently, mostly for heating cold coffee.
