Kenmore is recalling some of its microwave ovens due to a burn hazard caused by incorrect wiring that allows the exterior of the unit to exceed 183 degrees Fahrenheit, burning the user.
The recall involves the 1,000-watt Kenmore Elite countertop microwaves manufactured on April 27, 2017.
Customers can check the manufacturing date by the first six digits of the serial numbers on the back of the microwave. For this product, they are: 170427. The model number of the recalled microwaves is 204.77603610.
The microwaves were sold exclusively at Sears and Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores nationwide from May 2017 through July 2018 for about $350.
Consumers should stop using it immediately and get the microwave repaired. Consumers with questions can call 800-659-7026.
