Microwave problem - my Kenmore model 62359 won't heat

Hello Cency, Our microwave just did the same thing today, same model as your machine. Everything seems to work, it just doesn't heat at all. It's about 21/2 years old.
Did you find out what was wrong with yours ? Was it a magnetron or capacitor as the one solution suggested ?
Thanks for your time,
Mark

Kenmore microwave 721 85032010 will turn on but won't heat or spin


Chances are that is just a defective top or bottom door switch or its mount.
See our help file on door switches here.
Also, that model number does not show up as a valid US Kenmore model.
Please check the tag in the cooking cavity or elsewhere n the oven and let us know if you need further help.

Model 721.63259301 does not heat, everything else is ok. 5 years old, repair? Replace? Thank You Fred Liethen


My Kenmore 721.63259301 would not heat items up so I came here and saw the parts required and was just about to order them when I checked the online owners manual and found this. FULL FIVE-YEAR WARRANTY ON
THE MAGNETRON For five years from the date of purchase, if the
magnetron in this Kenmore microwave oven
fails due to a defect in material or workmanship,
Sears will repair it free of charge.
My microwave has a manufacture date of July 2009 so I will be taking it right to the closest Sears repair center for a free repair. I suggest everyone do the same.

Kenmore microwave model numbr 72180039700 does not heat anything


The cause will be one of three things, the magnetron "common problem" or the high voltage capacitor and diode. If the magnetron turns out to be the problem, it will be cheaper to replace the microwave oven.

I have a GE Microwave Model JVM 150 01 , Every thing works but there is no heat , can this be fixed if so what would be the aprox. cost . Thank You Fred My Email is fredjomi@att.net


Hello Fred. When the microwave won't heat, you usually have a defective power diode, high-voltage capacitor, or magnetron. I recommend that you consult with a qualified appliance repair technician for help in determining the problem and deciding what to do about it.
The reality of today, however, is that it rarely pays to repair a microwave oven since you can go to Walmart and get a new one with lots more bells and whistles for 50 dollars and up.

Kenmore microwave model 665.68681891 runs but won't heat


Test the high voltage capacitor, the rectifier diode.or the magnetron. If all this are fine, test the control board.

If it additionally does not spin and no light, then check also the door switch and fuse.

The diode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, even if power is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.

All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.

Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.

Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts. (here in UK).

Kenmore Microwave Hood Combination: over the stove Model #721.80602500


Disclaimer: I'm a DIYer, not a technician.

Our GE over-the-range microwave stopped producing heat yesterday while warming part of the T-giving feast. Everything else (fan, control panel, light) works fine.

After disassembly and testing last night, I discovered a defective "secondary door switch." Your Kenmore uses a similar switch (~$19 on-line), and that might be the problem. But it also could be other things, such as a bad thermal cut-out.

If you know anyone who's handy with a multimeter, most of the basic diagnostics seem to be pretty straightforward.
