Question about Tappan TMS062E1 Microwave Oven

Installing microwave in center island

Last microwave had a long screw coming in from each side on the rear bottom to take the place of the metal bracket that would mount to the wall on a wall mounted unit, I don't know where it's safe to put the screws on this unit, if it's can be done.

    These screws don't help, I need to support the back of the microwave someway because I can't screw it to a wall.

Take the glass plate out, turn it up side down and see if you find 4 or more screws on the four corners of the bottom, but not the ones in the center of the chassis(metal sheet of the bottom) those are holding the fan and other eletronics.

Microwave door will not close


PROBLEM, ROOT CAUSE: the METAL FLANGE holding the fixed latch and (3) interlock safety switches is about a thick as the metal in the screw cap on a glass bottle ... say 16 gauge or less.

The METAL FLANGE is thin, wing that has not support to prevent it from swinging like a door hinge. We use (2) of the microwaves everyday. One has never given the "DOOR CLOSE" will not operate problem. The 2nd microwave worked for two or three years. Then it was difficult to close ... and the panel gave the failure message ... "CLOSE THE DOOR."

I was able to use my thumb to press and remove 'dimples' into the metal. It was giving just a little more support than a 'say 10 vertical sheets of wet white copy paper.' We I bent it back to the proper alignment, the door closed and the switches worked. But after just a few cycles of OPEN & CLOSE, the switches would not let the microwave operate ... and the door began harder to close.

SOLUTION: To prevent or limit the movement of the METAL FLANGE, I used (2) connected loops of cable ties like a vertical suspender. The suspender prevents the METAL FLANGE from moving away from the center of the microwave.

1. Un-plug the power cord.

2. There are two methods to remove the case:

(a.) Turn the microwave on one side, the place a ruler beside one of the TORX (with center security pin) screws. Take a digital photo. Go to an auto parts sales office that sells a license plate kit with a kit (a TORX wrench with a drilled HOLE and many of the same TORX (with center security pin) screws.

(b.) Drill out the center security pin at each of the TORX (with center security pin) screws.

3. I used (2) each 12 inch long plastic cable ties. The width was less than 3/16" wide (so it would thread into two [~0.15 inch diameter] existing ventilation holes in the microwave).

4. I threaded one of the plastic cable ties thru a hole at the top, near the front, about one inch toward the center of the microwave.

5. I threaded the 2nd plastic cable tie thru a hole in the bottom, near the front, about 2" towards the center from the latch plate.

6. I formed a large loop with the bottom cable tie, very loose, do not tightened at this stage. I threaded the open end of the top cable tie thru the bottom cable tie loop.

7. THEN I carefully

(a) opened & closed the DOOR, WHILE

(b) watched the position of the METAL FLANGE

(c) AS I slowly tightened each of the large loops of cable ties.

(d) I repeated steps (a) to (c)

(e) I stopped tightening when the CABLE TIES LOOPS provided SOME support, AND the METAL FLANGE still have some hinge movement.

My Panasonic NN-SN797S door would not close. My solution has worked since about March 1st, 2013. Below is a photo from the factory manual. ebd9fdc7-5cb0-4461-ace5-77040f1420eb.jpg 1daa051e-ab7c-4ba9-a7ea-73605433272e.png

How to install turntable motor in kenmore 72169072900


You can find helpful exploded views and find parts by entering your full model number (72169072900) at the Sears Parts Direct Web site.

Remove the glass tray and turn the oven on it side to get to the bottom base plate.

If you look at the diagram titled "base plate parts" you'll see the access panel on the bottom in the center that has to be removed to get to the turntable motor screws.

On some models, you have to cut the metal strips holding the panel in place, then during reassembly use a screw to reattach it. In some cases, the cover has to be rotate 180 degrees before reinstallation.

You then unplug the connectors on the turntable wires, then remove the screws holding the turntable motor, gently lift it out and also ease the turntable off the motor shaft.

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

The power went out on the microwave. We were cooking potatoes in there, and it just went dead. We were using the Jenn-Air oven below it at the same time, but that is still working.


There's a circuit breaker behind the microwave. Yup, that's where
they put it, believe it or not. The microwave and the oven are joined
together so you have to pull both of them out to get to the circuit
breaker. There are screws that hold the microwave and oven to the
cabinet it's mounted in. There should be 4 around the microwave
door and 6 around the oven door. The oven door needs to be
removed to get to the 2 bottom screws. The oven door has a metal
tab on it's 2 hinges that must be pushed down to unlatch the oven
door hinges from the 2 (per side) posts that the oven door pivots
on to open and close. After the door has been removed you can
take out the last 2 screws, you should also remove the vent at
the very bottom of the oven by removing it's 2 screws. Make sure
you have a least 2 strong people to pull the whole unit out, it's
also a good idea to have something sturdy that's the same height
as the bottom of the oven to rest it on after you pull it out. You
don't really have to pull the unit completely out, but it helps. You'll
see the small circuit breaker on top of the oven at the rear of the
microwave, just press it to reset it. Putting the unit back in the
cabinet is the reverse of the removal, but be sure you don't pinch
the armored conduit that contains the gas line for the oven. It'll
probably want to fall behind the oven as you push it back into
place like it did at my friends house. What we did was I pulled it
up and held it at the back of the microwave while 2 guy's pushed
the unit back in. Fortunately, it stayed in place after they pushed
it part way in and I had to pull my arm out of the way. It's a really
crappy place to put a circuit breaker for the microwave. I mean,
come on! You couldn't put it under the microwaves bottom cover
plate? There's room for it there! Anyway, that's how it went at my
friends house. I hope this helps you fix you're problem.

Sparks and Flames in my Kenmore 66561652100 Microwave


usually the only thing i'm aware of that will do that is if there is some kind of metal object in the microwave when you cook... even plates with thin painted metalic bands on the cause that affect.

remove the hook... place a container filled with water inside the microwave for about a minute to aid in cleaning... and examine the hook for any metal.

I'm trying to remove a Hotpoint RVM58003. I removed four long bolts from the top but it does not move. Any help on what I need to do to remove it? Dan


The Hotpoint RVM58003 (circa 1984) cannot be lifted off a hanger after the four top screws are removed because it doesn't have a separate pre-installed hanger like newer units do. The rear mounting screw holes are part of the outer frame of the unit, which requires removal of the Microwave sub-assembly of the Hotpoint RVM58003 to expose the outer metal frame and the array of pre-drilled rear mounting holes before the rear mounting screw(s) can be accessed and removed. Based on my recent experience removing a Hotpoint RVM58003 Microwave Hood from 1984 it appears the unit was originally installed this way too. Please note that this is a very involved process. Basic steps are: 1) Unplug AC power to the unit, or turn off the circuit breaker. 2) Remove the top plastic grill over the door and control panel (2 screws). 3) Next to the grill screws remove the larger left/right screws holding the Microwave sub-assembly in. 4) Drop down the hinged light bulb/air filter cover panel (mine had 7 screws). 5) Remove the small metal cover plate on the right under the control panel. This exposes the Microwave sub-assembly electrical connector. 6) Disconnect the Microwave sub- assembly connector. 7) Carefully pull the Microwave sub-assembly out of the frame and set aside. You may need to fish the power cord through the cabinet or unscrew the power cord terminals. NOTE: this is best done with a helper because this sub-assembly is about 25-30 pounds. 8) Once the sub-assembly is out the rear plate is exposed and the rear mounting screws can be removed. I found that the GE/Hotpoint Owner's Manual does not have installation instructions. Neither does the GE web site, they only have the Owner's Manual. For more specific help and instructions I suggest calling The GE Answer Center at 800-626-2000 or hiring a professional installer experienced with this older style Microwave Hood.

Removing Microwave


I just got my Whirlpool MH7100 off the wall. It was a bit of a hassle. I could not find a proper manual online at Whirlpool, but I guess since my unit was manufactured in 1993, who can blame them? Was the Internet even around in 1993?
There were 2 obvious bolts to remove above the microwave, these were found by opening the cabinet above. The next step was the hard one. Even after these were removed, the microwave would not lean forward so that it could be removed from the rear brackets. To get it to lean forward, I had to partially remove and partially break (i think) the vent for the exhaust fan. This revealed what looked like a very large screw with a regular head, one on each side. Once I unscrewed both of these, I was able to lean it forward and get it off the rear brackets.

Door won't open


Im sorry to say, but the housing will have to come off to unlatch the door from the inside.Not difficult ,Unplug the unit and remove all of the screws around the top of the housing cover if any,also
rear and both sides will have to come out.When they have all been removed, lift the rear of the top housing cover and pull back.You will be able to see where the two door latches are locked in place.With a screwdriver,you can push up on the bottom latch and the door will open. All this can be done without spilling the milk inside.Just slide the microwave around slowly to get to the screws.The broken part inside should be able to be replaced.Contact repair parts center.
