Question and Answers


We have Kenmore Elite microwave # 72179153010.-It's discontinued Its made a LOUD rattling noise since day 1.


I am sorry to hear about the noise problems that you are having with you Kenmore Elite Microwave Model 721.79153010.


I am not aware of that model being louder that other types or brands of counter-top microwaves. I recommend that you check the turntable tray and related components. Those parts are known to make a growling noise if they are not installed and lined up properly.


If those turntable parts are okay, then you may need to take the microwave in for service. If it is still under warranty then any failure will be covered by the warranty.  The microwave has a 1 year full warranty on parts and labor. The magnetron has a 5 year limited warranty. Since the microwave is heating properly, the magnetron is probably okay. The details of the warranty are in the owner's manual. Here is a link for that document: Kenmore Elite Microwave Model 721.79153010 Use & Care Guide. 


If the microwave noise problem will not likely be covered by the warranty, you can still carry it into your nearest Sears Repair Center or Sears Store for service. Here is a link for a webpage that has information on service: Sears Home Services Microwave Repair.
