My husband messed with the tension setting on my kenmore sewing machine. (I got it from a friend so it's older, but new to me.) Is there anyway to change it back to the manufacturers setting?

You should be able to order an owner's manual from the Sears parts site.

Just enter your full model number at their site.

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


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.

After pressing start, light goes on but not operating. Senor issue?


I had a similar problem once with an older Kenmore microwave, which at the time, were actually made by LG. After removing the cabinet, there was a small automotive type fuse in a clip-in fuse holder which proved to be "open" after checking it for continuity with a test meter. I replaced the fuse with the EXACT type and rating, and continued to use the oven for several more years until I gave it away. Please note, that microwave ovens are not something that you want to mess around with. Make absolutely certain that you have unplugged it before doing anything. In my case, I suspect the after several years of trouble-free use, the fuse had failed, -likely due to age. In your case, it may be a similar issue, so you might want to see if your microwave oven has a similar replaceable fuse. Beyond that, I would strongly suggest taking it to an approved service facility. Also, NEVER operate the microwave until you have replaced all covers, cabinet, etc. to it's original state.

My kenmore microwave will not heat, everything seem to be functioning but the food does not heat.


Assuming all lights are functioning, etc. Is there anyway that it has been set in the timer only mode? Usually a microwave ( their little computer operating system)can be reset, by unplugging and leaving unplugged for a few minutes then replugging. Depening on the age of the micorwave, it may be simply worn out. the newer ones do not lst anywhere as long as the older ones did..but then they cost a lot less as well.

Kenmore microwave - unresponsive keypad


Repaired the unresponsive keypad on my older Kenmore (model 721.68100): Unplug. Remove integral cover for top and sides which is held in place by 5 metal screws. The cover then slides toward the rear. Unplug two connectors to back of keypad and clean them (I used contact spray cleaner). Some of the components retain a charge even when unplugged.

Kenmore Microhood not working


I think it may be an internal fuse or a fusible link. You also have a series of contacts and switches inside that are set in place by the mfr. for safety. You could get it repaired for 50-75 dollars or a new one for 125-150 dollars. If you have checked the internal fuse, then just get a new one if the other one is older than 3-4 years.

Kenmore over the range microwave is dead


Since there was a loud pop, then the fuse blew, I would say the high voltage rectifier diode and fuse have blown.

If so, a do-it-yourselfer can fix this for about $25.

You can probably find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number here at the Sears parts site.

There may be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

Here is a link you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:

Kenmore microwave


I had this problem before. Look on the display. Is there a little 'd' on there? I can't find my manual, but inside it shows you the combination of buttons to push on the display to fix this. Anybody else know the secret combination? What the heck does the "d" stand for anyway?
