Question about Kenmore 63263 Microwave Oven

Kenmore microwave uneven base

The new microwave I just bought seems to be uneven, with its weight mostly toward the right rear corner. When it is sitting on a flat surface (I tried several), the left front leg is slightly in the air, so that if you push or pull at all when opening/closing it, the whole thing wobbles slightly. Is there any fix for that or do I need to replace the microwave?

    That's what I thought, too. I ended up returning it. Thank you.

It seems that when you bought the microwave the metal or plastic on the bottom of the unit is bent or warped. If I were you I would return it because yo cant really fix it

I have a used microwave that mounts under a cabinet, Kenmore model 721. It has only two screws to mount through cabinet does it require additional hardware? Seems alot of weight for just two screws.


Kurt,

There is usually a mounting bracket that mounts to the wall and the microwave hooks into that and is held up by the two screws you referred to in your question. Unfortunately, you have not provided enough of the model number for us to look up any info to help you find a new bracket to mount to the wall. Hope this helps!

Need new glass tray for Kenmore microwave bought in 1977. Model # 99371.


They made Microwaves in 1977? wow. I would try an appliance junkyard, or ebay. We have used a microwave safe plate of the right size and it worked well. Good luck!

Trying to remove an old GE Spacemaker microwave JVM140-001 and can't figure out how to detach it. I do not have a manual or installation instructions.


On some of these old GE Spacemaker models, there are two long horizontal bolts at the top (R&L corners), accessed behind the upper grill. Remove the grill (four tiny screws), take out the two bolts (flat screw heads) that attach to the rear plate, and your microwave will come right down and out, providing you've removed the three mounting bolts on the top.

My GE builtin microwave oven makes a buzzing sound, even when you just turn the surface light on and when you try to program it and, of course, doesn't heat. The repairman says it needs a new control...


Working inside a microwave is not something Average Joe should attempt. There are potentially LETHAL amounts of stored energy that needs to be properly discharged before repairs can begin.

The repairs in this case are more than 60% of a NEW one - so it is advisable to put the $$ toward a new unit with warranty. 2001 makes it 9 years old. Typically manufacturers don't support after 10 years.

Thanks!!

Need to know how to install


THERE IS EITHER OR BOTH A BRACKET THAT SHOULD BE SECURED TO THE WALL STUDS TO SUPPORT THE MICROWAVE AND THERE ARE THREE LONG SCREWS THAT GO THROUGH THE CABINET ABOVE THE MICROWAVE WITH AN OUTLET IN THE CABINET. THERE IS AN INSTALLATION GUIDELINE IN BOX. IF YOU STILL FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE HAVE YOUR SUPPLIER GET SOMEONE TO INSTALL.

How do you un-install a kenmore 665.61639100 microwave?


the link below will take you to the installation instructions if needed.
It is much easier for two people to remove the microhood. If attempting alone, please move the range out so you can get under the micro to support the weight. If the range stays in place, protect the top from damage.
1. make a landing site to the side to protect the floor when putting the micro down after removal.
2. Disconnect the power cord in the cabinet above.
3. loosen the two screws in the bottom front corners of the cabinet above. When removed the front of the micro will drop, be ready for the weight. Busy times, tools in hands microwave coming down in front.
4. tilt the front down. pull the cord out of the upper cabinet.
5. with micro still tilted down in front, lift the back of the unit upward to free it from the wall plate.
6. remove the fasteners in the wall plate and remove.
Congrats, begin celebration.

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.

We had a spark occur in the upper right corner of the front panel of our Spacesaver Micro. The clock, lights and fan still work but the micro makes a strang sound and doesn't heat anything. Is it worth...


That is a question you will have to ask yourself.

Everything is fixable, the issue is the price. Sparking inside in not a good thing (see more below. Strange sounds are not good. A repair guy will probably want $50.00 to look at your oven.

Frequently, sparking is caused because there is some flat metal surface in the oven (a spoon you left in the soup). Round metal surfaces are ok in a microwave, flat surfaces reflect the radiation. If such a reflection happens to reflect back into the magnatron, that would not be a good thing.

Depending upon the age of the device and your handiness and your finances (including your investment in this oven) you must do something - . Fix it (call the man) or replace it; don't let this go
