Has to be hard wired
After the kitchen guy slipped this into the cavity it was realised it had to be hard wired. This is not possible in my kitchen, I can only have a gas regular oven, not electric. Cost me over $1300 and I can't use it. I tried to sell it for $800 negotiable, it is no use to me, but got no interest. Before you buy any convection microwave check it can be installed in your kitchen. Gave it 3 stars as it looks good, hard to rate when I can't use it
Purchased in July 2019 at Harvey Norman.
Westinghouse microwave oven
We’ve had this microwave/convection oven for about a month now. It’s very powerful. It’s been ok, but the manual is a little vague and so I haven’t looked at all the settings. You’re supposed to be able to cook a roast in there which would be great, I’m too scared to try it tho in case it doesn’t work! We had a Whirlpool with the crispy plate before this and that was great for reheating pizza. It’s hard to know what to put this on?
Questions & Answers
I have one of these microwaves and have not been able to work out when I should use the grill trays. I don’t usually grill in this m/w , rather use it as a microwave and a combi oven. Too scared to try other uses eg oven baking and grilling .
The racks? You use them if you want quicker browning or caramelisation.
Westinghouse does this unit need to be hard wired? Or can I get a plug on it and plug it in to a normal power point?
Ours is hard wired, apparently it’s better to be on its own circuit according to our electrician
Thanks Caz. I can't get a dedicated circuit in my kitchen to hard wire it. Electrlolux just rang me back and said it can have a plug with a 15 Amp cord and a 15 amp power point. So I will call the electrician again and ask him if that would work. I suspect I dont't have enough circuits
The electrician said a 15 AMP point also needs a dedicated circuit, so it is no use to me
Why is our microwave sparking when we put a glass of water inside?
