Q:

can i vent all models (over the range) of microwaves to the outside

A:

You should be able to vent all of the over-the-range microwaves to the outside of your home. I am not aware of any current models that don't have the ability to exhaust air through a vent duct system to the outside. If you decide on a particular model, you can normally view the installation manual on our website. You can use the owner's manual search tool on our website to find the manual. Click on the "Manuals" tab at the top of this webpage to access that website tool. If you have trouble finding the manual or you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

Q:

Kenmore 400 dryer won't start.

A:

There are several different types of Kenmore 400 Series dryers. Since you did not provide a model number, I will assume that you have an electric dryer such as model 110.69422800.

Check the house circuit breaker for the dryer to make sure that it is not tripped.

On this type of dryer, the door switch could be bad or you could have a blown thermal fuse that would prevent the dryer from running. Less frequent possibilities for failures include a bad timer, a failed push-to-start switch, a wiring failure or a bad drive motor.

Check to see if the drum light turns off when you push the door switch in to simulate the door being closed. If the light does not turn off then the door switch is likely causing your problem. You can order a new door switch from the Sears PartsDirect website. Use the full model number of your Kenmore 400 Series dryer to access the parts listing for your dryer and order the correct part. The first image below shows how to open the cabinet to access the door switch. Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing internal components.

If the door switch appears to be okay, you can check the thermal fuse by unplugging the dryer and removing the back panel. If you have a volt/ohm meter, you can check the continuity through this fuse. Remove one wire and measure the resistance across the leads of the fuse. You should measure near zero ohms of resistance if the fuse is good. If it measures Ol (open load or infinite resistance) then it is bad and will need to be replaced. You could also test it by taping the wires going to this fuse together with electrical tape. Reassemble the dryer and see if it runs with this fuse bypassed. If it does then this fuse will need to be replaced. NOTE: Do not continue to run the dryer with this fuse bypassed. It is an important safety component that must be replaced. Also, check the exhaust vent duct system for a clog or restriction if the thermal fuse was blown. An resolved restriction in the air flow out of the dryer could cause the fuse to blow again shortly after it is replaced.

If the thermal fuse is okay, then you could have one of the less frequent failures listed above. If you need more help (or have a different type of dryer), reply with additional details and we will assist you further. Please include the full model number of your dryer in subsequent replies.

Q:

Kenmore 400 no. 6754

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern. I do not understand what you mean when you refer to a "fly wheel". What do you mean when you say it is stripped?

If you're referring to the blower wheel which is threaded onto one end of the motor shaft, it can be replaced. I added an image below showing how to loosen the blower wheel. In order to remove it, the back panel and the blower wheel housing will have to be removed.

NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the front and rear panel.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
