You can remove them using using a T20H Torx type or GTXH20-100 screwdriver. If the correct tool is not available, there are several ways to remove the screws:

- Use a hammer and a small punch or similar tool to knock out the middle post of the screw, then use a standard T20 Torx bit to remove the screws. (Use safety glasses).

- Insert a small flat-bladed screwdriver (such as a jeweler’s type) into the slot between the post and the edge, tap the screwdriver firmly with a hammer to loosen the screw, grip the screwdriver with pliers, and remove the screw.

- Use a hacksaw or Dremel tool to cut a slot in the head of the screw, then use a flat-bladed screwdriver to remove the screws. (Use safety glasses).

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

How to remove Kenmore Quicktouch micro hood


If it's like most above-the-range microwaves, there will be 2 or 3 screws holding it from above, inside the cabinet
While supporting the unit from below, remove screws.
The rear of the unit is supported by hooking onto a bracket that is screwed to the wall behind it.
The rear needs to be lifted, then the unit should pull away from the wall. Requires some muscle.

The magnetron looks like the below image

testing is not easy as it's a high voltage component and can be dangerous to work around.

Touch pad is not working, says enter in time and none of the buttons work. I have unplugged it and then plugged it back in nothing changed. Worked last night at dinner, went to bed, didn't work to defrost...


Had a few of these happen on this brans and model. All had to have new touchpads fitted. If you are handy it is a matter of opening case and unplugging and replugging and tightening a few screws. Cost about $110 for new pad.

Microwave does not heat. Everything else works. What is the most common problem?


Disconnect power source. Take the case cover off. Inside you will find a high voltage fuse. This is probably your problem. Use safety current tools to avoid an earth shaking electrical buzz.

Lamp does not work in Kenmore microwave 721.66312.


Good luck! I am trying to change mine and it is NOT an edison screw bulb. It is a bulb glued into a larger plastic base, with two spade lugs coming out of it. If you (and I) can find the bulb, it is a relatively easy fix! You need to power down the unit and let it sit around for a few hours to let the capacitor drain. Even then do not poke around near the capacitor, as you might get a shock even if the unit is unplugged. The capacitor is an oblong round metal can near the bottom back of the unit.

To get the back special torx screws off, I needed to use a vise grip. Anyone know the bulb part number?

Owners manual for Kenmore Elite Microwave Model 66462


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

You can 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. Click there.

d:%5cele%5crepair%5cmicrowave%5ckenmore_sears%5cview_manuals_button.jpgd:%5cele%5crepair%5cmicrowave%5ckenmore_sears%5cview_manuals_button.jpgd:%5cele%5crepair%5cmicrowave%5ckenmore_sears%5cview_manuals_button.jpgcaab351.jpg

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.

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

Kenmore 363.6367 internal light doesn't go on


I had the same problem! I was soooo frustrated! But, when my brother came to town, he took off the grill on the top of the micro hood, took out a few more screws, a plastic screen, another screw in the metal cover for the light and then reached in with his fingers to pull out the light bulb, we replaced it, then re-assembled it. It did take us about 30 minutes to do the job and you will need a phillips screwdriver, and a phillips screwdriver drill bit thing, but we were able to do it. I love having the light in the microhood again.

Kenmore Microwave 721.66319 500 Light buld gone out - now what?


First of all, since this will involve disassembly, we have *critical* safety & disassembly info at our site in our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams for your Kenmore model here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com

Enter your model number as 721.66319500.

The light bulb is shown in the "LATCH BOARD PARTS" diagram and it's located in the area of the door switches.

Manufacturers used to include access panels in the rear or side so you could easily change the bulb. That exposed the customer to 110V connectors, and that posed a real liability threat, so they stopped using them.

You now must generally remove the outer cover to replace the bulb.

It's best not to touch the bulb with bare skin, as the oils can shorten thee bulb's life. And I recommend a high quality bulb from places like Home Depot, instead of cheap types from the grocery store.
