Kenmore microwave model #79080353310 vent


That's probably normal. The flapper valves aren't meant to be perfectly airtight.

Your manual page is here. It has both the installation instructions and the owner's manual.

Please include FULL model number*, FCC ID number*, + detailed symptom information.

My punch-out arcade control panel does not respond anymore. All I did was replace the non working micro-switches. Before the non-working micro-switch would make a buzz sound. Please help.


Perhaps check the electrolytic capacitors in the power supply. They may or may not be bulging on top.

Internal fuse


Is this an over-the-range (OTR) microwave oven or a counter-top model? Assuming it is an OTR model, your can get to the fuse by first unplugging the microwave, then removing 2 to 4 screws over the grille vent. Remove the grille vent. Depending on the model, you either slide it to the left a little bit (1/4 inch) then pull it out, OR tilt out the top of it followed by the bottom. Now you should see 1 screw that hold the top of the control console in place. Remove it, then lift up on the control console to get past the tabs, and tilt out the top. Now, depending on the model, you may see the fuse behind the control console, or if it's not there, then remove the 1 or 2 screws that hold the metal grill vent that's located above the control console. Remove that metal grill, and your should see the fuse behind it. Sometimes that fuse blows for no good reason, other times it blows because you have a shorted high-voltage capacitor, or you may have a sticking "monitor" door switch.

How do I change my MMV4205BAS to vent (recirculate) out of the front vent instead of the top vent.


Paul, if you look on top of the microwave before you install it you will see where the fan is located at the back edge. There should be 2-4 screws that hold it in place. Remove the screws and pull the fan up and out of the microwave and rotate the unit 90 degrees towards the front of the microwave and put it back in and replace the screws. That should be all that you have to do to get it to vent out the front.

Hinged exaust door on top of microwave only partially opens then repeatedly and rapidly bangs open and closed


The service manual for that model is here.

It may be a bad limit switch / detector switch in the louver circuit or there may be a bad cam in the louver.

There's a YouTube video available showing how to remove a typical over the range grille (and if necessary) control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Some additional info on disassembling louvered models:
There are two Phillips head screws on the very top of the outside of the cabinet above the vent.

When they're removed, slide the hood vent grille to the left about 1/4", then then pull it forward.

(There are three L-shaped clips that fit into a slot to hold bottom of the vent)

Then remove one screw (which holds the control panel in place) near the top of the control panel.

Once that screw is removed the panel tilts out so you can disconnect the wires and then slip it out.

Be sure to mark and/or photograph your wires so that each one gets back exactly where it was after the repair.

Reassembly is accomplished by sliding the L-shaped keepers in place, then sliding the vent grill to the right and pushing it into place.

Can you put and over-the-counter microwave over a stove?


Yes, that is what they are made for, As long as it has a vent that can be used to vent the smoke from cooking it can be mounted over the stove. Normally the bottom of the microwave should be mounted 16" to 19" above the stove top. The microwave must have a vent with a blower motor in order to be used above a stove top. Most have a thermal switch that will turn the microwave vent on once the temperature reaches a set point.

Ge advantium 120 microwave oven completely dead


You have a bad cavity switch. I would guess it is the one behind the vent cover, toward the left side of unit. You would need to remove unit from wall. Remove outer housing to expose cavity switch. You can see it from vent cover, I would test all cavity switches before removing from wall. You should have a diagram of unit folded up behind vent cover towards right side of unit. This tells all workings of unit. Will also tell where all cavity switches are.
