I Bought An Old Kenmore
One quick way would be to look on the top of the unit. Do you see empty screw holes where the screws going through the cabinet above it will go through and screw into the top of that unit? If no open screw holes on top of unit probably not an over the range model. Also, look under the bottom of the machine. do you see feet??? Or just aluminum screen vent filters. If feet and no filters probably a counter top unit.
To remove, you will need to remove four bolts on the top of the unit.
Unplug it first, then remove the two bolts nearest the wall first. It would help to place something under the front of the unit about two inches shorter, to catch the unit as you remove the front bolts. The bolts are long, so be prepared for a lot of turns. A ratchet helps. The unit will lower in the front as you remove the last bolt. There is a bracket screwed to the wall behind the unit, with a lip at the bottom that holds the back of the unit. After the front has lowered, lift the back up about an inch, and pull the whole unit away from the wall. Remember to pull the power cord out of the cabinet before moving the unit away. Hope this helps.
HI, there is a inline fuse located inside the microwave ion the power supply board. check for continuity. replace the fuse if necessary. if the fuse is OK, replace the power supply board.
Kenmore microwave model 721 loose door
Loose bottom hinge - slide the microwave to the edge of the counter, and look at the bottom hinge - you may have to remove something to see clearly. Its likely you are missing a screw or the screws have worked themselves loose.
Not heating making loud noise
Check inside the oven chamber and look for missing powder paint or signs of arcing, if so there is a paint to repair microwaves for this issue or else just dispose of the microwave. If the inside is good remove all the screws and remove the cover. If the magnetron was making louder noises prior then replace the magnetron. the giant capacitor could be bad. While the cabinet is open make sure to look for burned wires, check the continuity of thermal cutoffs, and check the main circuit-board for burned traces or components. The relays in most electronics are known for arcing (spot welding) and staying in the wrong position. Tap them hard with the back end of a screwdriver. During all of this use safe electrical practices by having the power cord unplugged. The capacitor could still have a high charge on it so be careful.
Microwave turntable makes a noise
Just dont listen to Mr Miller. He rambles way off subject and will say anything to feel like he is special.
All it takes is very fist sentence where he suggests it could be magnetron bad. Geee, if that were the case your microwave wouldnt heat/cook so you wouldnt be here having a noise problem would you? Its kinda like the mechanic saying your noisy brakes could be caused by a empty gas tank.
Cause? - could be motor that operates turntable going bad, food or something lodged anywhere in moving parts of turntable operation which includes unseen area, or moving part that is been somehow bent or moved (unlikely without impact to microwave or previous work done possibly leaving something loose).
Solution? - I am ignorant of specific assembly of your microwave but on many you can access motor from bottom (unplug microwave first) and replace motor yourself if you are somewhat mechanical. The cheapest easiest 1st step would be clean very well around all parts and even clean any debris you find when taken apart, then recover and turn on to see. Not the likliest but its cheap and easy and you have to take apart bottom to replace motor anyway so not really much extra work.
Microwave turntable makes noise
yes motor may be bad or something is stuck . its not difficult to change .it is located at the bottom and has a wire connector with 2 spade clips
Burning smell , Microwave not turning off
the control circuit shorted out from the cleaning session and kept the
microwave on so long with nothing to cook that it has cooked itself I'm
sorry to tell you. Probably not worth repairing
No help from Sears!
door indicator is the microwaves way of telling you the door isnt closed. does it run at all if it doesnt its probably a door switch. theyre there as a fail safe because your microwave shouldnt run with the door open
