For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.





Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.

How to remove overhead kenmore 1000 watt microwave


Unplug the power cord and make sure it will come out easily when you start to take out the mounting screws.There are 2 or more screws in the cabinet floor above the microwave. Be ready to catch the microwave once the last screw is removed because it will drop in the front. Then lift the back of the case off the tabs on the wall mount bracket and the whole thing is in your hands.

Chances are the thermal fuse is gone that protects the magnetron. Unplug microwave, remove top, [several screws] look over to the keypad and slightly to the left, you should see round fuse mounted on the inner chassis at the top, change with the same size and rating, if all goes well the microwave oven should function.

Kenmore 66462,changing the bulb,went out in the first year,has some funky screws on the back that i have never seen before,what kind of tool do you need for theses screws,there is a little stud sticking...


You can remove them using using a T20H Torx type or GTXH20-100 screwdriver. If the correct tool is not available, there are several ways to remove the screws:

- Use a hammer and a small punch or similar tool to knock out the middle post of the screw, then use a standard T20 Torx bit to remove the screws. (Use safety glasses).

- Insert a small flat-bladed screwdriver (such as a jeweler’s type) into the slot between the post and the edge, tap the screwdriver firmly with a hammer to loosen the screw, grip the screwdriver with pliers, and remove the screw.

- Use a hacksaw or Dremel tool to cut a slot in the head of the screw, then use a flat-bladed screwdriver to remove the screws. (Use safety glasses).

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

How can i replace a schneider microwave oven light bulb - the light which comes on when the oven is operating?


Take the outer casing off, just remember there is one security screw from the eight you take out. once you have done that then there is a metal sheild around the bulb holder 2 further philips screws to take then just replace the bulb and re assemble, note the cover is like tongue and groove to get back on so make sure you line them up before screwing back together.

How do you remove the cover of a kenmore microwave oven?


Unplug the microwave. Remove the screws on the back that are holding the cover to the frame and slide the cover toward the back. The front is held on by tabs going into slots.

Countertop kenmore microwave, large, brown, old...whar is model number...I need to manual


Sorry, but you can't get a manual without the model number. You can find help locating your model number here.

If the manual doesn't address how to change the bulb, or you don't see an obvious bulb cover, then you'll have to remove the outer cover.

Be sure to unplug the oven first.

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, and a special driver (such as a T20H Torx type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.
