Question and Answers

Q:

Replace or repair mh6130xeq-1 or mh6130xeq1

A:

I am sorry you are experiencing difficulties with your Microwave. Microwaves contain high voltage internal components that can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is completely unplugged. Door repairs and adjustments, even minor ones, can cause microwave leakage and a microwave shielding leakage test must be performed using a survey meter after any microwave service. I strongly suggest that you have this repair handled only by a qualified service technician. I have provided a link To Sears Home Services if you decide to schedule service. If you think it may be cost effective to just replace the unit, I have also provided a link to the Microwave section of Sears.com to price out what a replacement would cost.

Just about any 30" wide over-the-range microwave will fit in that space. The image below shows the cabinet measurements that were required to install that Whirlpool microwave.

Since this involves a rental properly, I recommend that you replace that microwave with a moderately priced model. Here is a link for a reasonably priced Kenmore model: Kenmore Microwave Model 85032 . Here is a link for the installation guide for that Kenmore model: Kenmore Microwave Model 721.85032 Installation Instructions . You can use the information in that installation guide to make sure that the Kenmore microwave will fit properly in the cabinet of your rental property.

A repair of the microwave will normally cost almost as much (or sometimes more) than the cost of replacing the microwave. I recommend that you replace the microwave instead of having it repaired in this situation.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.
