Kenmore microhood model 721.80833500

This is my second microhood of this same model. The vent cover above the door keeps breaking off. The first one I had I had to replace the vent cover twice, and on the third time it broke Sears just replaced it. Yesterday the send microhood's vent cover broke off again. Now I have to call Sears AGAIN, and either get another new vent cover or get a new model of microhood. The plastic tabs that are the only thing that hold it in place keep breaking off on the left side. We checked the balance of the microhood and it's in balance. Does anyone else have this problem with this model? It's the stainless steel Kenmore Elite.

I have that model and when my son pushed the dial it poped inside the microwave. I have to call service. I think I will replace with another model.

When did you purchase this microhood? Do you have the extended warranty on it? I'm having the same problem. It's driving me crazy.

How do I change the front exhaust to top exhaust on a Kenmore microwave/hood


In order to change the venting on the microhood you need to uninstall the unit and at the top of the microwave is the blower unit. Remove the cover, flip the blower and you should then see the fins on the motor, reinstall the unit under the cabinet and your good to go. I hope this helps, good luck

No power

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
First check is the main fuse of the unit. On countertop units, you will need to take the shell off. The fuse will be close to where the cord comes through into the unit. OTR units, this main fuse is usually behind the control panel or possibly behind the vent. Usually the fuse is obvious if blown, otherwise test with an OHM meter, if open, replace fuse.
Some brands will also have a thermal cut-off fuse in the incoming voltage line to the control board. Older Maytags and Samsungs have this fuse in it. This thermostat looking fuse is usually above the oven cavity somewhere under the outside shell. Sometimes you can get to it through the vent of OTR models. Test with an OHM meter, replace if open.

How far out does a microhood sit from the cabinet. My cabinets are 12 inches and the microhood I want is 16 deep. Also it will be 19 inches above my stove.

Don't know right off the top of my head, but the installation instructions should tell the min and max height from the stove. If they don't you may want to contact an electrician to find out.

I bought a used over the range microwave oven( kenmore) I would like to know how to install it knowing there is an opening to the roof. thank you

Most Kenmore microhoods use a 3" by 10" exhaust duct. Check for correct demensions. Make sure that the existing vent is this size or that you have room to adapt to this size. There should be a damper mounted to the top of the micro which will attach to the vent duct work. You will need an outlet in the cabinet above the micohood. This should be on a circuit of it's own. The microhood should have a wall plate for the back wall. I'm going to assume there are no templates available. Hold the wall plate against the back of the micro to determine the height placement in the opening. Most install centered under and against the cabinet above. Not all do, so this will confirm. Mount the wall plate to the existing wall studs with at least 1/4" by 2-1/2" lag bolts. Bore an 1-1/4" hole in the right rear corner of the cabinet above, about 2" out from the back of the cabinet and 2" in from the side, this is not a critical measurement, it is to pass the electric cord into the upper cabinet. There are two screws that support the front of the hood. I believe they are 1/4" by 3-1/2" long. If not included, check for size. The hardwae will have them, get flat washers to fit both also. Measure from the back of the micro to the mounting holes in the top of the micro, include the wall plate in this measurement, they'll be about 10" out from the back and about 1-1/2" in from the edge, near the front, but check that measurement, they vary. Drill 3/8" holes in the bottom of the cabinet at these locations. If doing this alone, best that you move the range out. It's nice to have a helper at lifting time. With the plate on the wall and the holes in the bottom of the cabinet, your ready. Put the 1/4" screws and someting to drive them in the upper cabinet, so they'll be available. Lift the micro into the opening with the front tilted downward, hook the back of it into the bottom of the wall plate, push the cord into the upper cabinet, tilt the front of the micro up until you can start the front support screws. Start both, don't let go of the micro until you are sure that both screws are started and will support the front weight. Once you're sure, tighten both screws all the way and connect the vent. Steel tape is best for sealing up any leaks. Power up the outlet, plug in the microhood and put in the popcorn. Get a good movie and enjoy in your accomplishment. Congrats. PS: Make sure the roof vent opens when the hood is turned on, I have seen them stuck shut from grease build-up.

I need vent dimension for Kenmore Microhood combination model #8162. Is the vent at the back 3x10 or 3x12?

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

Just enter your full model number at the Sears parts site.

On the resulting page, look to the right for the blue "View Manuals" button.


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. This is where you will find that information.

If yours is not listed there for free, you would have to order it through the
Sears parts site.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Kenmore elite ultrawave microhood combination error code F9

F9 is normally a bad door switch or door switch mount.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

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

There should also 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.

Kenmore microhood model 665.62612200

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Door switches are most often damaged by opening the door while it's cooking (instead of pressing Stop / Clear first) or food
/ grease debris in the switch.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, linked here on Fixya:

It's also possible there may be a problem on the circuit board, which we repair nationwide.

Kenmore microhood

"Microhood" seems to be a slang term for the "microwave hood" (hood fan or exhaust fan) which is normally part of an over-the-range microwave oven or range. But these should be available separately, as I seem to recall. I would contact home centers such as Lowe's, Home Depot (if they still exist), etc., or a local appliance store.

Stainless Steel Kenmore Elite 36 in. 2.0 cu. ft. Microhood Combination Model 63763

Generally the F9 code indicates a problem with the door latch (usually upper) or with the control board. You can do a Google search for my text file "doorsw.txt" to help you diagnose and repair door switch trouble. BUT - since it always stops at 53 seconds, that leads me to think you have trouble with the control unit (circuit board / controller assembly). Once you read and digest the info on door switches, please feel free to do an updated post and I'll be happy to help you further. It may be corrupted ROM in the control unit. But let us know what you find out. - online they call me "William E. Miller, AS-EET"
