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.

see this steps and fix it. God bless you

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.

  • However if the problem persist the display board
    main control board is faulty

    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.

    The sensor errors are probably just from opening the door and interrupting the sensor cook cycle.

    By the way, you should always press "Stop" before opening the door of a running microwave. Otherwise, the door switches will prematurely fail.

    I would first check the door switches and their mounts. See this help file.

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

    There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

    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

    Popcorn stain in Microwave


    Uhhhmmm, paint? Inside a microwave? YUCK.... that would make food taste like paint.

    The yellow stain from microwave able popcorn is most likely a permanant issue. I have heard of the vinegar water, bleach etc working, but never had it work for me.

    I don't recommend you painting the inside of a microwave. Some paint is flammable. Almost all paints are toxic.
