Question and Answers

Q:

What caused my microwave/hood combo to turn itself on and overheat? 66561659100

A:

Hello, glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com.
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is problems with the microave/hood.
 
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore Microave/hood combo model number 66561659100.

Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your questions about your Kenmore Microwave. I am so sorry to hear it has problems with it turning on by itself. I know what a time saver the microwave is and know you want to get it working again quickly. In this case, I suggest you have it tested and repaired by a qualified technician.
 
 We do not give advice on repairing microwave ovens because they are inherently dangerous to service. Microwaves contain high voltage internal components that can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is unplugged from the outlet. You need special equipment to work on a microwave starting with an anti-static wrist strap grounded to the microwave to even test components in it. Even minor door repairs and adjustments can cause microwave leakage, and a microwave shielding leakage test MUST be performed using a survey meter after any microwave service.
 
 
For these safety reasons I strongly recommend having this repair completed by a qualified service technician. You can schedule service online at www.SearsHomeServices.com or by calling 1-800-4-MY-HOME (1-800-469-4663). Here at SearsPartsDirect.com we love to help you with your repairs, but our expert advice is that microwaves are just too dangerous for a do-it-yourself project.
 
 
Please "RESUBMIT YOUR QUESTIONS IF THERE IS ANY OTHER PROBLEMS".
 
Thank you for your understanding in this matter and I hope we can help you with your future questions and repairs.  Thank you for choosing Sears and using our SearsPartsDirect.com.

A:

Take a putty knife & carefully remove the choke around the perimeter of the inside of the door. You will see the door handle screws that you will need to remove in order to replace the door handle.

WARNING: Microwaves are inherently dangerous to service. Internal capacitors can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is unplugged . A microwave leakage test must be performed any time a door is removed, replaced, disassembled, or adjusted for any reason.

If you do not have the proper testing equipment (Electromagnetic Energy Leakage Monitor), call a service technician to test the door for leakage prior to operating the microwave.

Q:

Why is my Kenmore microwave model 665.61659100 not heating like it used to?

A:

A number of different internal component failures could prevent the microwave from heating properly. Although we provide troubleshooting advice on most other appliances, we do not offer technical help on microwave problems since they are inherently dangerous to repair and will need to be checked for shielding radiation leakage following any internal component repair. I recommend that you have a service technician diagnose and repair this type of microwave failure.
