Question about Kenmore 63663 Microwave Oven
F9 is almost always an error related to a bad door switch or door switch mount or misaligned door hinges.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.
Door switchor mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening thedoor while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.
There areplastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches andonto which the door latches lock when you close the door.
The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.
Sometimes it'sa broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate justout of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under thebottom edge of the switch.
One test that sometimes helps is togently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try tostart it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount ordoor alignment issue.
