    Sears ran out of stock of the manual, it asks money for everything and don't put an online version for customer service. They just want to send a technician to me, or don't speak to me. I regret to call them, waste my time been transfer around and find that they don't want to help me.

    I end up call local store manager, he confirmed that my model should be convertable. Then I found the manual left by previous owner, it has detailed drawing for how to duct it.

    The way sears- kenmore do business is not friendly, I will avoid to buy their product - I don't reward this business model.

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


Hi,

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

How do I change light bulb in 721.63109 300?


The lamp is mounted in the plastic duct that guides air over the magnetron tube (the microwave source). If you take the cover off the oven you'll see the lamp terminals and wire connections sticking up from the duct, just behind the control board. A replacement lamp can be purchased from Sears parts.

My Kenmore Elite electric stove top will turn on fine, but it will randomly cut off. Then none of the burners will heat up, but lights are on like all is fine. If I turn off the power for 5 minutes it...


If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the magnetron thermostat to open.

Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

An overheating magnetron can be :
  • operating oven without cover(s) in place
  • wrong magnetron installed in oven
  • an old or otherwise failing magnetron
  • cracked magnetron magnet
  • improper power line voltage (US homes should be 110-125VAC)
  • foods low in moisture (popcorn & bacon, e.g. - add 1/2 cup of water in rear oven)
  • failed or inoperable cooling fan or hood vent exhaust fan
  • deteriorating foam weatherstripping seals in air ducts or on outside cover
  • blocked air vents (dust, animal nest debris, insufficient free air space behind & around oven, etc.)
  • clogged or greasy charcoal filter or grease filter
  • blocked duct in hood vent exhaust
I suspect a failure or the fan, clogged filter or bad magnetron.

I appreciate your thoughtful rating of my answer.

Trying to change a fuse on microwave.


It may be the fuse or the thermal cutout / thermostat associated with the magnetron.

You say you have the service manual? If you mean the folded-up "mini-manual" that should show the relative locations of the parts in a perspective view.

Also, you can find exploded views at the Sears parts site.

Looking at the "interior parts ii" exploded view here, it shows the fuse (drawing reference # 5001) on the small RF noise filter board located on top of the air duct assembly.

You'll need to remove the oven from the wall to get to it for testing & replacement.

The installation instructions are handy to pull the oven from the wall.

If you've misplaced yours, the Sears site may have them free.

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.

That Sears-related site has many free manuals. While the manuals they list there are all free, they may 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.

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.

You have a short to ground. It's a very dangerous situation. Stop work, call an electrician!

Fan just circulates air instead of exhausting the air outside


The exhaust motor was not installed properly - it has to be turned 90 degrees so that the blower openings face up instead of the front. Whoever installed it didn't read the directions:)
Unfortunately, the unit will have to be taken down from the wall to correct the motor.

My microwave is sweating


No. This is usually a sign of poor venting or air flow. It's possible that the coling fan is not circulating the air properly due to a problem with it or maybe the air vents are blocked. Also, there needs to be a couple of inches around a countertop model on all sides - especially the back - to ensure air flow. Look for buildup on the back vent grille. You can listen for the fan to be running and feel the air flow while it's running. If it's weak or not there, it needs inspection / service. A lack of air flow can cause the magnetron to overheat and be damaged. If this is a built-in model also check your air filter, air duct work and outdoor vent flap. Write back if you still have trouble.
