Have to replace an old Kenmore double oven Model #911-3218811. Since the old oven was "built-in" I need to find the exact measurements for the one I am replacing (again model 911-3218811).

SOURCE: light bulb replacement for sanyo ems3553 microwave oven

If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (most often on the rear or side) and the owner's manual doesn't address it, then disassembly will be required.

You'll need to remove the outer cover (wrapper) to get to the bulb.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

If it's an over the range type, remove the vent grille across the top and see if bulbs can be accessed there. There may be a panel on the bottom covering the light(s), instead.

If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover. If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

If you don't have your instructions, please reply back with your brand and model number.

Once it's out of the wall, the outer cover (wrapper) will need to be removed, just as you'll need to do on a counter top model.

On a counter top model, be sure it's unplugged, but otherwise ignore the instructions above this paragraph.

You'll need to remove the outer cover (wrapper) to get to the bulb.

See these links before proceeding:
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/safety.txt
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/disassembly.txt

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (such as a T20H type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

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

Bulbs can be had locally in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

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

SOURCE: my over the oven model 665.61629100 kenmore has cracked door

The outer door frame CAN be replaced if you like. You can view an exploded view diagram at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and locate item 10 under the "Door" parts listing. The part comes in various colors so make sure you select the correct one.

The door can be easily removed by opening it all the way and lifting straight up at the hinges. The door will come off the hinge pins and can be laid on a flat surface for easier access. Place a layer of towels under the door to prevent damage to the door.

You will need to remove the door handle to get the outer door frame off. To access the door handle mounting screws on MOST microwave ovens, you have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. You can use a small screwdriver to carefully pry the plastic up and work your way slowly around the perimiter of the glass. Most microwave ovens also have grooves in the panel that you can insert the screwdriver into. Use care not to pry against the glass. The glass is tempered and also has an RF shield that prevents harmful microwaves from potentially harming the consumer. If you break the glass, you may need to purchase a new door.

The door handle screws are located behind the inner panel. Remove the door handle and and locate any screws that may be securing the outer door (front) frame in place. Once you install the new outer door frame, re-install the door handle and carefully re-insert the inner door panel. Gradually work your way around the perimeter of the door glass and make sure it snaps back into place.

If you have questions about this repair, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

To answer your initial question, the microwave should continue to be safe to use as long as the inner door seal and door glass are intact. Make absolutely sure you reinstall the door components back together properly. Not doing so will render the oven unsafe to use. Refer to the web site I provided as a reference for how the door components go back together.

NOTE: This part is listed a bit cheaper at appliancepartspros.com. Use the part number from the first website I mentioned as your search criteria.

SOURCE: Kenmore oven-microwave 911 41479791 I get E 01 error.

F 11 code. it is a touch pad error.
If you just cleaned the control panel it may have water in the panel causing a key to stick.
If after a day or 2 it hasn't dried out - then you will need to replace the touch pad.

Visit www.searspartsdirect.com and enter in your full model number for a parts breakdown and schematics.

I found some diagrams of your unit, and you might check out part number 158 in the control panel diagram- it's the limit switch, and it could be limiting the broiler element from coming on:
Parts 35 and 40 are selector switches, which could also be bad.
Try to trace the element feed to ensure it has continuity.
You might call Sear's Service Center and see if they know of a likely component failure for your model.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

GE Customer Service is here. They may be able to tell you if there is a "drop-in" replacement available for your model.

Otherwise, you'll have to take down the old bracket then mount another model in the space.

What wattage is toshiba er6860w microwave?


You can do an exact power measurement by putting exactly
500 ml of water in a glass (Pyrex) or plastic measuring cup in the microwave. Measure the beginning temperature and record it, preferably with a digital thermometer. Run the unit on high for exactly 18 seconds. Use a digital watch or a stop watch, not the timer on the unit. Remove the measuring cup and stir the water to make sure that all the water is a uniform temperature. Record the temperature rise. Say the temp rise is 20 degrees Fahrenheit Multiply that figure by 38.75, this would indicate that the power delivered into the cavity is 775 watts. This is the old standard of measuring the power. The new standard called the IEC 705 would add 10% to that for a total of 852.5 watts. This matters more than the rating of the unit because if the power output is more than 15% below the units rated power, the magnetron is probably getting weak and needs to be replaced. Probably not worth the cost to repair. The voltage at the wall could also cause a low power output output. 'Google' the model # to see if you can find any info on this model #......

Kenmore Model 721.66222500 just suddenly stopped working. No light, no power, no nothing.


I just had same problem happen on a Kenmore Model 721.89940490. I took off top panel and control panel. Behind control panel is a ceramic fuse. I pullud it out and checked with my mutimeter for continunity and it is blown. Since it is 20 years old I will get a new fuse and replace it. If it works good, if not I will have to go buy a new one to put under the cabinet. My contractor that built my house in 1994 directed wired it but I\'ll spend a little extra and put a plug in the cabinet, if I have to replace it. I suspect I won\'t but there is still that possibility.

What the code f3 mean my stove model # is 911.9584991


Hi,

This model ( Kenmore ) has been built by Roper ( 911 - First 3 digits tell you the manufacturer's name ).

F3 refers to Oven temperature sensor open.

You need to check the oven temperature sensor.The value of oven temperature sensor should be around 1100 ohms at room temperature. In case, it is too high or low, you need to replace that.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
