Q:

heating 72162259200 Kenmore Microwave

A:

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com

I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is trouble with the microwave.

Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore model number 721.62259200.

 I can appreciate wanting to diagnose and repair the microwave yourself, however I strongly recommend against it. We do not give repair information on 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 completely unplugged. 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.

We have our Sears Service Crew phone number at  1-800-469-4663.
 If you have further questions please let me know.
Thanks for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com

A:

Microwaves are not very user friendly. Even changing a light bulb can be dangerous.

To access the light bulb would require removing the outer cabinet.

Microwaves are inherently dangerous to service. Internal capacitors can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is unplugged.

I recommend calling a service technician to repair this type of problem.

Q:

Where can I find detailed instructions to replace the door clasp on my Kenmore microwave oven Model 721.62259200?

A:

This type of repair should be completed by a service technician. The choke cover is Key 1004 on the image of the parts diagram of this microwave that you can view on the Sears PartsDirect website. It must be carefully pried off without damaging it to remove the choke and replace the door clasp. The choke cover and choke are essential radiation shielding components of the door. If they are not removed and replaced properly, harmful radiation leakage can occur. A microwave radiation leakage test must be performed on the unit using proper equipment following any door repair. Unless you have the proper testing equipment, I recommend having a service technician complete this repair.
