We bought a condo with a Kenmore microwave oven installed over the counter top range. The previous owner was a lady in her eighties. She left us a photocopy of a manual, which has written on it model #72189941490 (in pencil). When I look up that model # in http://www.searspartsdirect.com
, the microwave pictured in the manual there looks different. The manual that we have appears to be the correct manual, but I suspect that the model # written on it is incorrect. The front page of what we have says on the left "Sears Use & Care Manual Stock No. 85731". However, that stock # does not lead me to a model number, in online searches. I've posted three photos of the microwave at http://awehmann.smugmug.com/Projects/Wheaton-condo/32823730_rJnBW4#!i=2878752277&k=sSBk7qt
If anyone here knows a model # for this unit, I'd be very grateful.
The manual that we have tells where to find the model #. That location is located next to the keypad & is completely worn off.
Even with the correct model #, parts may be hard to get. We are considering buying a new OTR microwave, but it's discouraging to read people commenting about how soon they need repair work. This old one, at the condo, still works.
