INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — Kenmore is recalling some of its microwave ovens due to a burn hazard.

The company said the microwaves have incorrect wiring, which causes the microwave’s exterior to reach temperatures exceeding 183 degrees Fahrenheit, posing a burn hazard to the user.

The recalled product involves 1,000-watt countertop microwaves manufactured under the Kenmore Elite brand name 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: 170427.

The model number of the recalled microwaves is 204.77603610.

The product was sold exclusively at Sears and Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores nationwide from May 2017 through July 2018 for about $350.

Consumer with the product should stop using it immediately and get the microwave repaired.

Anyone with questions can call 800-659-7026.
