We see this a lot. The problem is almost certainly on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, linked here on Fixya:

SOURCE: Microwave heats but slowly.

This is the second time I have requested assitance on this site with no response. The beginning of this thread dates back two months. Why would I ever want to pay for support when it is so poor at this level?

SOURCE: KENMORE MICROWAVE (HOUSEHOLD) LOCKED

It sounds like you press STOP two or three times to lock it. Maybe that (or another key) will unlock it.

The lock / unlock procedure will be covered in your owner's manual.

Or you can try a hard reset - unplug it from the wall for one minute, then plug it back in and try again.

If you don't have your manual, you can get one here. (Enter your model number without any spaces)

SOURCE: Microwave won't heat

The two possible causes are a faulty door switch and a bad magnatron. You can pull the top cover off of the unit and check all of the door switches (there are 2-6 of them all on a common rail, me normally closed)). If the door switches all check out, replace the magnatron, diodesmag-glass_10x10.gif, and capacitor

YOUR MAGNETRON IS MOST LIKELY BAD. THIS IS THE UNIT THAT CREATES THE MICROWAVES.

Have Kenmore microvave and the vent starts on its own


Actually, that's a feature! If you cook much on the range (stove) beneath the microwave, the heat will cause the microwave bottom to heat up quite a bit (just touch it!), and the microwave will turn on it's exhaust fan in an attempt to save itself from burning up. It will shut off in about 15 minutes after you turn off the source of heat.
But if the fan comes on by itself even when the microwave is cool (or at least not hot), then you probably have a defective fan thermostat. This thermostat is located behind the control console on the inside bottom of the microwave.

Why is my microwave model 60609 making extremely loud noise and not heat?


Usually that is a sign that your magnetron tube has gone bad (shorted out).

My still fairly new kenmore 1000 watt microwave appears to be operating fine but doesnt heat. What might be the problem?


When you hit "Start" to microwave, do the inside light, cooling fan, and turntable all come on?

Any unusual noises? Is it louder or quieter than usual?

We have a sound clip of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are operating here.

Post a new help request with the answers to these questions as well as the full model number from the tag on or in the unit.

A full Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########
