Question about Kenmore 80809 Microwave Oven

Model 721.80803400 microwave blank control panel

I went to use my microwave today and the lit control panel was BLANK. I have a Kenmore Elite 80802. I was able to cook my food by just hitting "manual cook" and spinning the dial and pressing the button. However, I can't time anything to cook anything special.

    Today I have the same problem and same model. Screen had several horizontal lines then just went blank. It appears bright but has no display. I can still use the microwave but can not time anything unless it's for the 30 second timer.

    I have model 80802 and control panel is lit but does not display any information. Micro works but obviously cannot set timer, etc.

    I also have model 80802. The control panel is lit but does not display any information. The solution that worked for me was to unplug the power and then plug in. It reset the control panel to normal display operation.

    Unfortunately the "best solution" listed in FixYa was to buy a new unit - Ugh. Certainly not the "best".

I have had the same problem and had it professionally fixed before, but works the fastest is unplugging the unit and plugging it back in.

How old? Probably better to buy a new one instead.

Microwave Oven will not turn on

I may be able to help you or a friend troubleshoot it, but I would need the FCC ID number from the model tag to look it up.

FixYa doesn't always notify us of follow-ups, so feel free to contact me directly (see below).

It could be an issue with your control board, and I regularly repair these at an affordable cost.

Thanks for using FixYa. If it is the screen that has gone bad it can be due to the fuse that has gone bad and/or the control panel that needs to be checked. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved else post a comment for further assistance.

Generally the F9 code indicates a problem with the door latch (usually upper) or with the control board. You can do a Google search for my text file "doorsw.txt" to help you diagnose and repair door switch trouble. BUT - since it always stops at 53 seconds, that leads me to think you have trouble with the control unit (circuit board / controller assembly). Once you read and digest the info on door switches, please feel free to do an updated post and I'll be happy to help you further. It may be corrupted ROM in the control unit. But let us know what you find out. - online they call me "William E. Miller, AS-EET"
