Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore Microwave Model No. 72180839500

A:

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 ManageMyLife.com we like to help you with all of your repairs, but our expert advice is that microwaves are just too dangerous.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Q:

I have a Kenmore Elite Microwave Model# 72180839500 it's about 4 years old serial # 512km00263

A:

The microwave does have several fuses in it. It is likely that a blown internal fuse is causing your problem. Replacing a blown fuse may not completely fix the microwave. Fuses usually blow due to an internal component failure. The microwave also has high voltage internal components that can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is completely unplugged. I don't recommend that you attempt to repair this problem yourself. I recommend that you have a service technician repair the microwave. The link for a previous answer that Celene provided above confirms this advice. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

NOTE: Repairing the microwave can often cost as much as replacing it. I recommend that you consider replacing the microwave instead of having it repaired. Here is a Sears.com link for a relatively inexpensive replacement: Kenmore Stainless Steel 30 in. Microhood Combination - 8503
