They made Microwaves in 1977? wow. I would try an appliance junkyard, or ebay. We have used a microwave safe plate of the right size and it worked well. Good luck!

The owner's manual is online at:
http://www.emersonradio.com/owners/MWO%20manual/MW8992SB-RD.pdf

You can contact Emerson at their number in the manual for a replacement.

I always suggest that people place food (especially popcorn) off-center on the tray (not in the middle) because the heating is better, plus the extreme heat is not always applied to the same spot in the tray each time.

Food placed in the middle will not cook as evenly.

Good luck, and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

SOURCE: 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.

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.

Take your round glass tray and plastic three wheeled hoop to a local Sears store, open up the microwaves on display, find the one that is still using something similar, deftly trade out yours for theirs. The new wheeled plastic hoop wheels are slightly bigger and the glass tray raised guides are a bit longer, since the switch no problems like I had. Don't get caught. They do not have those parts for sale at the local Sears store.

I bought a house with this Microwave - no instructions etc.Should there be a glass tray for it - I know it's an older model


If there is a recess for a tray and a drive in the middle of the floor of the oven, then it should have a rotating tray. My microwave is about 30 years old and has a rotating tray.

Our Kenmore model 721.80833500 tray jumps off its track. This has progressively gotten worse over time and now the little end wheel on the rotating arm has broken off. The microwave still works and still...


Found 2 possible solutions on the net. (1) Check the engineering change at a Sears store. They reengineered the glass tray and the narrow plastic band the tray glides on. Get the new items from Sears. (2) Cut 1/4" out of the narrow plastic band the glass tray glides on. Possible solutions that look promising.

The glass plate in my microwave shattered and I need to get a new one.


Go to "sears.com", click on "Parts Direct", another page will be displayed, enter you model number (usually found just inside door of microwave), select cabinet and you should see your glass plate listed, scroll down to required number and then you will see the part number. Copy and paste that number into search engine and look for best price or just buy from sears

How to change the handle


To access the door handle mounting screws, you have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. You can use a small screwdriver to simply pry the plastic up and work your way gradually around the perimiter of the glass. Most microwave ovens 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 will need to purchase a new door.

The door handle screws are located behind the inner panel. Simply remove the broken handle and install the new one. Re-insert the inner door panel carefully and gradually work your way around the perimeter of the door glass and make sure it snaps back into place.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

I bought a Kenmore Elite Microwave Hood Combination Model 721.80823500 at Sears. The installer did not bring the parts to connect the vent to the pipe on the ceiling and never came back. I cannot find the vent/exhaust connetor part to have it installed. No one knows. I appreciate information or installer. Thanks.
