Question about Kenmore Microwave Ovens
It depends on what you have and what you want. The following are my humble opinions, but you will be the one to decide for yourself....
If your microwave has some age on it, or if it has a history of problems, this should weigh more towards replacement. Also....If it is an inexpensive unit, replacement is probably the better choice, as parts tend to be higher than replacing the unit. Call your local appliance parts supply house and get the replacement cost for a magnetron tube for your model. Get some prices on models that meet your needs from local stores or the internet and are acceptable as a replacement. Also get a general cost of your unit when it was new. Here's how I do it: If the cost of repair is more than 50% of the cost of a new one, I'd replace it. My junk-it scale is 50%, but the percent drops if the unit has lots of age on it, or if I've had a history of previous repairs. The older it is, the more likely it is that it will break. It will also make a difference if you are making the repairs yourself, or hiring someone else. If you keep these things in mind, you will make the right choice.
Best regards, --W/D--
