Question about Kenmore 80809 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Microwave has no power

I was making microwave popcorn for my daughter. I pressed start on the microwave and the numbers on the timer started flashing and the microwave stopped working. I flipped the circuit breaker back on but there is still no power to my microwave. I plugged my can opener into the outlet for the microwave and it worked just fine, so I know the problem has to be with the microwave itself. The microwave is only 15 months old, just barely out of warranty, of course. We haven't abused the microwave, so I have a really hard time believing it is completely dead. Please help.

    Thank you for your help. I actually just happened to have a repairman in my home today to fix a washer issue (when it rains, it pours). The very nice gentleman took a look at my microwave for FREE! He replaced the fuse, but told me that he couldn't guarantee how long it would last, because there was something else shorting out that was causing the fuse to blow. The first time I used my microwave after he left, the fuse blew and no power again. I guess we get to look for a new microwave now.

Clock will not set time

Most microwaves just need to have the clock button pressed 1 time. Then you enter the time. Next some want to to pick am or pm. Then press clock again to set. Sometime last step is the start button instead of clock.

Reset the clock. Press "Clock" and the correct time, using the number pads. Press "AM/PM" if applicable, and press "Start" or "Clock" to confirm.

  • 2 Press "Timer On/Off" to reset the timer if nothing on the touch pad will operate. Use the number pads to select a new timed amount, if desired, and press "Timer On/Off" to start. Press again to cancel.
  • 3 Press and hold "Clear/Off" for three seconds if the timer will not function or is blinking when you touch the pads. This will release the "Child Lock" feature. Make a new touch pad selection.
  • 4 Disconnect power to the microwave if following Steps 1 through 3 does not resolve the blinking timer. Wait a few minutes, and then restore power to reset the microwave.

    Assuming your power line voltage is okay, it would not surprise me that after 27 years, your high voltage capacitor is drying out and increasing its capacitance. This will cause variance in the high voltage output, which can stress the magnetron and increase current consumption.

    Burns my popcorn constantly. is there a different setting i can put it on?


    Solution to your microwave problem is given as below.

    * 1 Set your Daewoo microwave on a countertop near an electrical outlet and plug it in. Open the door and place the circular roller guide in the center of the oven cavity, then place the glass cooking tray over it.

    * 2 Set your food on a microwave-safe dish and then put the dish on the cooking tray and close the door. Make sure that it latches properly.

    * 3 Turn the upper knob to select a power level. Power levels include "Defrost," "Med-High," or "High." If your Daewoo has a touch pad, touch the "Microwave" button once to set the highest power level. Touch it consecutive times to lower the power level.

    * 4 Turn the lower knob to set the cooking time. For cooking times less than two minutes, turn the knob up past the two-minute mark, then back to the correct time. For touch pad models, enter in the cooking time with the numerical keys and then press "Start."

    * 5 Open the door at any time to stop the cooking and check the temperature of your food. Shut the door to automatically continue cooking, or turn the timer knob to the right to add more time. For touch pads, press the "Stop/Clear" button, then key in a new cooking time and press "Start."

    * 6 Open the door when the timer reaches the "Off" position and take out your food.

    We have an Amana AMC6138AAS microwave/convection oven. I was cooking popcorn last night and opened the door before the timer stopped. When I opened the door the inside light and the control panel went...

    Did you have a power failure? Could be an overheat situation. Try unplugging the unit, wait 30 seconds and plug it in again. This resets the unit as long as there isn't a breaker or fuse blown. If it is a power issue, the display should start flashing. Did you get any error codes?

    Microwave doesn't work

    Sounds like you have a faulty control panel. I would use a meter and test the power from the control board to the magnetron and circuit board. Chances are the control panel is faulty
