Solution: I assumed the device was in good condition, because heat without problem, then I isolate the failure in between the main breaker and the outlet.
The problem was in the line. (110 volts) not properly grounded and maybe with bad size of diameter wire.
I made a independent power supply only for the microwave including his own breaker.- The problem is over. Thanks.

Can low voltage cause magnatrons to fail?


That would depend on how low the voltage gets. Because the lower the voltage gets, the more current the device draws at that voltage to operate. Higher currents can, in some cases shorten the life of electronic components if those components aren't designed to operate under those conditions. I have a microwave oven that operates on a 120V AC circuit. This circuit normally carries about 117VAC, with the microwave under full power, the line voltage drops to as low as 104VAC. This is just due to the load the magnetron puts on the circuit. If you lowered the voltage by about 5 volts in my case, the current draw would be enough to trip the 15A circuit breaker that protects the circuit. If I were operating the oven on a 20A breaker with 12 gauge wire instead of the 14 gauge, 15A circuit I'm using, the voltage drop would probably be a lot less.

Kenmore Elite microwave model 85513 doesn't heat like it use to only 1/3 power what has to be replaced


An intermittent or failing magnetron could cause the problem. Although extremely rare, an intermittent high voltage rectifier can also cause this.

What if reset button on back doesn`t fix problem,what`s next to try? no lights no power


No power at all would point to a breaker or fuse for the power. You would have to open the back to have a look and test for voltage.

How do I fix Microwave?


Replace the Magnetron and diode pack. DO NOT DO THIS UNLESS QUALIFIED Dangerous voltages are present!

Kenmore elite microwave not heating


This a common issue and caused by one of three things, magnetron, "heats food" cracked high voltage diode, and a shorted high voltage capacitor.

Kenmore Microwave Model no. 85438 Serial No. 609KM00089 does not heat.


It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARRAMOUNT

This is a job for a professional but if you are safety clued up, here's instruction.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 or moving coil meter on high resistance range for short circuit, (DVM's won't show the fault!), the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

Microwave hood # 721.80833500


One of 2 things are happening..One of the thermo protectors has a bad connection (Kenmore is good for these) or the Magnetron has a leak inside the control cavity causing a temporary short in the control.

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?

Kenmore over the range Microwave


Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
