I was given a Whirlpool microwave. I think it's 6 or 7 years old. I does not have the bottom filters. Is it unwise to use the microwave without those filters?

Not really over the short term, if the vent discharges back into the room. If it is of the type that discharges through the ceiling, you could have grease build up in the vent over time. I found replacement generic filters the other day at Lowe's. But, I wasn't looking for filters at the time. Check there or a similar store.

Good luck,

just replaced our 6 year old Thermador MBBS ($750) with a GE JES2051SNSS from Home Depot ($179). The bottom guide piece from the Thermador bolted right on the bottom of the GE and positioned the new unit so the front trim piece fit perfectly.

My 15 year-old RHEEM Warrior Model 71-40S forty gallon electric water heater is leaking, and the element also needs replaced. I am thinking it is likely time to get a new, energy-efficient model versus...


Rheem makes great products. Lowe's sells whirlpool brand and they are not all that bad for the money. I would buy something better than the budget 7 year warranty model though. My preferred choice is AO Smith. I would definitely replace your water heater if it is 15 years old- most don't go much longer than that, although mine is 27 years old and going strong! Please remember to make sure and extend your pressure relief valve down to within 6 inches of the floor when replacing the water heater as Code requires. A water heater blanket will also earn its keep in a short amount of time.

Microwave is 21 years old. It is above the range


Um, no. You can get a new microwave that is much, much more efficient for a fraction of the repair cost.

Turntable has suddenly stopped working.


The turntable motor may be bad, if you've confirmed the switch is working. The motor is located under the bottom of the microwave and has the shaft penetrating through the bottom of the oven cavity with a drive coupler attached. The coupler is what drives the glass carousel tray. The motor can be accessed by unplugging the microwave and removing the bottom panel screws. The motor is held in by a couple of screws and two connecting wires. The coupler will lift up and pull off the motor shaft from inside the oven.

You can view this part and exploded view diagrams of your microwave at appliancepartspros.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Magnetron and Air Flow" heading for item 6 (part number AP 3119645).

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

My sharp microwave is under 6 months old. I was


It may be a shorted high voltage diode.

Since it's less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

You can contact Sharp at 1-800-BE-SHARP (1-800-237-4277) or visit them online.
