Our "repaired" microwave failed again. We had Caroline at Amel in
Guadeloupe purchase the same microwave that Gary describes below. She
is holding it until we arrive in Bonaire and will ship it to us there.
Her email address is amel.caraibes "at" wanadoo.fr..substitute the
"at" with @.

were in Guadeloupe
for a few weeks. We measured the cabinetry space and bracketavailable, including the
recess' in the the wood base into which the microwave rubber feetfit, and found a near
perfect fit with a Samsung 82 W -X 23L purchased from the Conformastore on the road
to the airport. It is a 220 volt, 50 Hertz model, white in color sothat it lightens the galley
up a little bit and does not have the browning element. It isn'tquite as tall as the original
Amel provided microwave but measures the same in all otherdimensions. I utilized a
piece of dark colored closed cell foam padding under the hold downbracket to make up
for the height and it is barely visible in the rather dark recesseswhere the hold down
bracket is located. I considered purchasing a 110 volt 60 hertzunit and running it off my
inverter but in the end decided to stick with a 50 hertz unit.
