how old is this? the smart board is the problem but I cant find the parts, is this a counter top model?.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

It is a counter top model but I don't know exactly how old it is. I bought it secondhand last year. It has been working fine for just over a year. The model number is XXXXX not 706 as I originally said. I could probably find the serial number if required.

well to be honest the parts no longer come up so I cant find the smart board but I can tell you that its more to repair than to replace, the smart boards are usually around 100-150 dollars, much more than a new counter top microwave, at this point I would replace the microwave, hope this info helps, thanks Bryan
