Put the probe in the oven and beeping stopped. Left it in overnight and next morning took the probe out and there was no beeping. Have not heard beeping all day. Don't know why this worked but it did.

Magnetron needs replaced.

CAUTION: Your microwave oven is capable of giving you a serious electrical shock, even when it is unplugged. We strongly suggest you seek the assistance of an appliance repair technician when conducting any microwave oven repair.

Microwave makes a buzzing sound and will not heat.mo.#4450786a.


The magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

Kitchenaid superba combo. Microwave gives


HI, this is an indication of a failed door switch. When the switch fails, the control cannot recognize the closed door signal. Simply replacing the door latch mechanism will solve this issue.

Replace the door latch assembly, asap.

Spacemaker beeping loud and f3 message driving us crazy


The error code F3 indicates an oven sensor problem. The oven sensor is most likely the failed part. The oven sensor probe must have the correct resistance readings at specific temperatures. When the electronic range control (ERC) cannot identify the correct resistance of the oven sensor or the resistance is way out of specs F3 will display.
I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your oven.

KitchenAid Superba Microwave/Oven, Microway Door message


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount (which are pretty simple problems to fix) or occasionally a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto 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's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There may 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.

If you only need a switch, you can order one from us for $5 postpaid.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.

Kenmore Microwave Displays Error Code Reading "Prob"


I would bet that the temperature probe socket has some accumulated grease, etc. in it which may be changing the resistance of the contacts, making the control board think the probe is installed but defective.

First, please unplug the oven before you investigate.

The best idea is to clean the probe socket contacts.

You'd need to remove the outer cover, and the probe socket should be located on the right side of the chassis.

If you can cut thin strips of fine sandpaper and work them back and forth between the contacts, that's the best way.

You can plug & unplug the probe while observing the socket to see how the contacts work.

Your socket may be sealed, and that would possibly require you to carefully take it apart. That's a bit of a gamble, as it may crack due to age.

Another idea is to take a wad of paper toweling, hold it with your right hand over the back of the probe socket, and spray contact cleaner or WD40, etc. into the opening of the probe jack from inside the oven cavity with your left hand.

Then plug & unplug the probe several times, wipe any spills and try the oven again.

If the probe unplugs form the control board, you could disconnect it and try the oven.

Let me know how it goes.
