Removing over the range Daewoo microwave

I need to remove my Daewoo KOT-21UW over the range microwave oven to take it into the shop to have the thermostat replaced. My wife accidently run the unit with nothing in it for 15 minutes. Now everything operates except the microwave no longer cooks. The local service shop said to bring it in for repair but I no longer have the manual, and as it was installed while we were having out kitchen rebuilt, I was not the person that installed it. I don't want to take out the wrong screws and not be able to re-install it. Do you have a manual for this unit? Thanks.

    None of the suggestions are for an over the range unit. They were all counter top models.

    I called the telephone number you provided, and they do not handle this particular model and know nothing about it. It was manufactured in Korea, and as I am in Canada, I'm on my own. If I do nood to purchase a new unit, guess which brand it will not be.

    Thanks for your help.

    Okay then it may be a model handled by Magic Chef or Maytag. (It gets so confusing!)

    Try 866.587.2002.

    You can also visit Daewoo online
    or call them at 1-800-323-9668 or 1-800-553-4355 to find parts or find
    your nearest authorized service center to have them do the work.

    Normally you can see the magnetron thermostat by removing the control panel assembly without pulling the microwave from the wall.

    our site, we have a video showing how to remove a typical
    over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

    Hope this helps. Let us know what you find out.

What is the Serial Number for the EWAVE KOT- 17sb? It does not display it in the information panel.

Hello, Marisel -

Do you mean the Daewoo KOT-170SB microwave oven, instead?

The manual for the KOT-170SB microwave I found online (PDF format):

shows a "data plate" on an interior wall of the microwave (page 7.)
That may be where the serial number (S/N) for the microwave is printed.

If not, there may be a label or tag at the back of the microwave oven where the serial number (S/N) is printed. Or, there may a label on the back of the microwave oven, look on the bottom.

Best wishes.

KOT-170SW volume of beeper dropped, can barely hear now. Any assistance appreciated. Norm NC3F

If the microwave is used rather often,the circuit board for the beeper does have a tendency to overheat ,what was once a "high pitched beep"is now a "low pitched beep".nothing can really be done to correct this.If the microwave is still covered by factory warranty,contact the factory.

Hi. I want to replace my Daewoo KOT 210UW over-the-range microwave. I need to know the size of the hood opening. How do I find this information?

All over the range microwaves are 30 inches. All the ducting is the same also. So you can replase with anyone you would like.

Touch Control panel of my daewoo KOT-151S microwave needs to be replaced. I have to push control pad several times to get it to operate. Sometimes it will go on after just a few pushes, other times it...

We regularly replace these.

You can send your KOT-151S control panel assembly to us to install a new membrane keypad. The cost would be $64.95.

Or you can order an entire control panel assembly (plastic frame, stainless trim piece, keypad, and control circuit board) for $88.85, which includes return shipping.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your model number) for more information & help.

Ewave OTR Microwave Oven, Model KOT-153UW. Light

We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or no bright, too. Sometimes this will similarly affect the exhaust fan operation or inside light, too.Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

Daewoo over the range microwave model KOT-21OUB just stopped working for no apparent reason. Lights and fans still work. Not heating food. Worked for one dish then the next nothing.

how old is the machine, microwave ovens have a tendancy to do the ridiculous for no possible reason. a check of the main power fuse within the unit might help. it is a large fuse 10A> that supplies the transformers
