Question about Kenmore 63682 / 63684 / 63689 Microwave Oven

2 Answers

I have a Kenmore microwave hood combo....model 68610...

Nothing works. The microwave does not work. The hood fan does not work. The light does not work.

There is power to the outlet that the microwave plugs into.

What could be wrong ? Is there a fuse within the unit ? It makes no sense to me that it could be something other than a power issue, since nothing is working.

    It was what I had thought ....However if anyone else runs into this, they do not have to remove the microwave from the wall.

    Simply remove the top vent plate. Then there is one phillips head screw at the top of the control panel. The panel swings down and their is an inline fuse directly in front of you in the microwave. It's a 20amp 250V ceramic fuse...

If there was a power outage, chances are that the internal fuse is blown. The internal fuse is located just where the AC power cord connects to. There's a small board with some more additional components as well.
It is advisable to take all the necessary safety steps when working with AC voltages. Unplug the appliance before removing the cover.

YES. it is possible that there was a problem on the fuse on the power supply area. since the unit did not seem to power On or to start. you will need to check on this area, if you don't have a idea how to test and check this maybe you can call someone who can do it for you.

Microwave door shut, but interior light is on - micro won't work


Yes. One of your door switches is not working. It could be an alignment issue or a faulty switch. There are actually 3 switches in the door latch area.

No door lights, vent fan or microwave


That's what I thought.

We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

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.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
