Question about Kenmore 80412 Microwave Oven
I have a Kenmore microwave hood combination model 721.80523 that is about 13 months old. About a week ago while cooking popcorn it started making a loud noise and started to smoke. The smoke smelled like some sort of electrical smell.

first, get your money back or get a replacement for no charge. now, unplug the oven for 15 minutes and try again. if no-go, then some device is faulty that only a tech can find

Chances are you have a bad magnetron.
If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years) but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.
If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

You need to use one of the metal racks that came with the Viking microwave to raise the popcorn bag off the bottom of the microwave. It works great!

Then button START become nor working some times. I can use only button of 30 secon increment to cook something. OK, the fan is working for most of the time but the levels are stuck, not adjustable. I can't changer the fan levels. Now the lamp buton is dead. Sometime, the fan level control is working by itself level 1, 2, 3.... then it appears -SE- on the display. nothing work now.
