Apollo Convection/Microwave Halftime Oven


Security team 24/7

Recommended Posts

Does anyone here have one of these puppies installed in their RV? We had the first 2 units replaced within the first year
after getting our 5th wheel back in 07...This 3rd one has run great since 07...we use it a lot especially in Convection Mode
to Bake goodies, pies, etc...all the good stuff to eat...

Well yesterday, it was in Microwave mode and just quit, a service msg blinks in the lower right part of the display...
I reset breaker and it seemed to run fine for about 25 secs and then went into the service MSG again...
I tried finding out more online about it, but so far have come up Nada...

Has anyone encountered this on theirs? Wondering if this unit has given up the ghost, or is it just a plugged filter
or something simple as that?

I have an Apollo and with my requirement for a 24" wide unit, the Apollo is the only one I have ever found and they seem to be hard to come by. Mine is still working, but no clue what I will do when it dies.

 

Please let me know if anyone here has luck with the link provided above.

 

The price listed looks pretty low and I can't help but wonder if this is a very old web page.

We had a Halftime oven in our first 5th wheel -liked it so well we got one for our truck.

 

The unit in the truck doesn't see much action and our SpaceCraft has a GE oven.

 

I was able to get parts for the unit in the old 5th wheel and fix it when it stopped working. It's been too long for me to remember what was wrong with it. They just sent me a "hunk" of electrical stuff and I R&R'd it. Oven worked great again afterwards.

 

I'd try to contract them and see if they have parts for you.

I emailed Apollo and they told me that if our unit was older than 08, it's time to throw it away!
Our's is an 06....so today I ripped it out of the kitchen and did just that...threw it out...guess they are
not stocking parts for the older units....We are just going to browse what's out there for convection
ovens and install one of them.

The guy next door runs an appliance repair shop, 15 guys. He's a "factory Service center" for many brands, and recently told two manufacturers ( I believe LG and Samsumg) he's not interested in doing their work. He says they're changing models yearly and won't ship im parts. They just swap out models if still under warranty. Out of warranty? Too bad. Parts will be on back order a loooonnnnggg time.

Www.apolllohalftimeoven.com

 

If you actually call them they are very helpful but it looks like you already trashed it. There are no other choices for a 24" convection oven except one branded Franklin which IIRC was pretty expensive compared to Apollo.

I think Apollo still makes a 24" model that would fit the existing space.

I did call them and they told me that if my unit was older than 08 then I might as well trash it...Apparently they
don't have the parts anymore for the older units...actually we do have the room to put in a 30" wide unit and there's

lots of those units kicking around... Actually we're going to look at a fairly nice one today, used but looks mint
100 bucks, can't beat that for convection/microwave, stainless/steel to boot, albeit probably chinese stainless
but what the heck...

We have one in our '04 Trail Lite B+. Does a passable job, but in our RV it draws 17+ amps and no other heavy draw items can be on at the same time, coffee maker, toaster, heater, hair dryer, or the water heater electric element I added. We can run the TV, satellite receiver, converter charger, lights and the lights. I was surprised at the warranty given on their web site, basically lifetime materials and labor, from what has been said before, that is unless the item is dropped from production.
