Check the manufacturer plate label on your microwave. It may be written like this- KW usually beside the Manufacturer model number.

You could also do a little calculation by checking the voltage and ampage readings. multiply them is going to give you wattage.

SOURCE: microwave frequency

The frequency has to do directly with the the wave a microwave oven omitts. Frequency is a measure of the number of occurrences of a repeating event per unit time. Usually microwaves run at a frequency of 2.54 Ghz, a wave length of 12.34 CM.

SOURCE: How can I find out what wattage my Emerson MW8778W microwave is?

I also bombed out on locating a downloadable manual but the hardcopy is available on eBay here:

http://cgi.ebay.ca/Emerson-Microwave-Oven-MW8778W-S-D-B-Owners-Manual-7_W0QQitemZ320281595945QQihZ011QQcategoryZ159903QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD1VQQcmdZViewItem

The efficiency of microwave oven is ~ 65% so if you will check the back of your unit for the AC line (input power) consumed, you can easily calculate the usable 'cooking' power available.

i.e. If the label states: 115 VAC 10 Amp(eres), this would amount to 10 X 115 = 1150 X .65 = ~ 740 watts delivered to the food.

The magnetrons do age (if not fail first) and their emissions fall with progressive use so a 10 year-old oven won't still give you that ~65% but substantially less.

If the microwave is arcing, or if a cooling or ventilating part is at risk, that can be dangerous.

But of course any time anything is broken or otherwise not functioning properly, it should be fixed as quickly as possibly to prevent it from getting worse.

Their warranty will normally cover in-home service on parts & labor for the first year, and just the magnetron itself for 7-10 years after that.

Specific warranty terms are in your owner's manual.

For repair service on Kenmore appliances, see Sears Service.

Owners manual for Kenmore Elite Microwave Model 66462


A full Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########

You can just enter your full model number at the Sears parts site.

On the resulting page, look to the right for the blue "View manuals" button. Click there.

That Sears-related site has many free manuals. While the manuals they list there are all free, they will ask you to register.

Many times, the owner's manual will have the installation instructions inside.

If yours is not listed there for free, you would have to order it through the
Sears parts site.

I bought a Kenmore Elite Microwave Hood Combination Model 721.80823500 at Sears. The installer did not bring the parts to connect the vent to the pipe on the ceiling and never came back. I cannot find the vent/exhaust connetor part to have it installed. No one knows. I appreciate information or installer. Thanks.
