Kenmore microwave #40188529900. Error code "TE"?


Thank you for your question.

I am sorry, but 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. 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. That's why I strongly warn you to have this repair handled only by a qualified service technician. You can schedule service online with Sears Home Services or by calling 1-800-4-MY-HOME.

Normally at we like to help you with all of your repairs, but our expert advice is that microwaves are just too dangerous.We thank you for your understanding in this matter and hope we can help you with other questions and repairs in the future.

You can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for using Manage my life.

The TE error code is repairable. The repair requires the internal components to be accessed. When a repair involves the door or removing cabinet, we shy away from any assistance on them because of the dangers. We offer a flat rate repair, which covers the cost of the service charge and all labor. The cost for the flat rate is 129.00. The only other cost would be for parts. Once the repair is done, you can also purchase a repair agreement that will cover anything else that goes wrong with it.
