Question about Kenmore 62622 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Will i need a separate 110 circuit????? cannot use the 220v leg??

The installers came yesterday and it looks like my fan in the existing hood is connected to one leg of the range 220. they said they cannot hang a 110v circuit off one of the range 110v legs. why not from an electrical point of view??? it looks like it will not conform to the local electrical code. now i have to find a electrician to parallel a 110 circuit from an existing outlet.

I would contact a few electricians for their opinions. Appliances like microwaves and ranges, etc. should be on separate circuits / breakers due to the high currents they draw.

Do you have the installation instructions that came with the oven? An electric oven requires a 220V circuit and the cable coming out of the wall you described is a 110 V circuit.

Emerson microwave mwg9115sl over heats then turns back on after 20 minutes


Your magnetron is overheating, which can be caused by:


  • operating oven without cover(s) in place
  • wrong magnetron installed in oven
  • an old or otherwise failing magnetron
  • cracked magnetron magnet
  • improper power line voltage (should be 110-125VAC)
  • foods low in moisture (popcorn & bacon, e.g. - add 1/2 cup of water in rear oven)
  • failed or inoperable cooling fan or hood vent exhaust fan
  • deteriorating foam weatherstripping seals in air ducts or on outside cover
  • blocked air vents (dust, animal nest debris, insufficient free air space behind & around oven, etc.)
  • clogged or greasy charcoal filter or grease filter
  • blocked duct in hood vent exhaust

The first suspects in my book are fan failure, blocked vents, or bad magnetron.

My Kenmore Elite electric stove top will turn on fine, but it will randomly cut off. Then none of the burners will heat up, but lights are on like all is fine. If I turn off the power for 5 minutes it...


If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the magnetron thermostat to open.

Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

An overheating magnetron can be :
  • operating oven without cover(s) in place
  • wrong magnetron installed in oven
  • an old or otherwise failing magnetron
  • cracked magnetron magnet
  • improper power line voltage (US homes should be 110-125VAC)
  • foods low in moisture (popcorn & bacon, e.g. - add 1/2 cup of water in rear oven)
  • failed or inoperable cooling fan or hood vent exhaust fan
  • deteriorating foam weatherstripping seals in air ducts or on outside cover
  • blocked air vents (dust, animal nest debris, insufficient free air space behind & around oven, etc.)
  • clogged or greasy charcoal filter or grease filter
  • blocked duct in hood vent exhaust
I suspect a failure or the fan, clogged filter or bad magnetron.

I appreciate your thoughtful rating of my answer.

Hi I'm thinking of getting an OTR mictowave and was wondering if I have to install an outlet in the cabinets or can I just place it where the existing wires for the hood fan are. This location would be...


The outlet needs to be in the cabinet above. The microwave needs a dedicated circuit. Turn the power off to the hood and see if any lights or outlets go off on the same curcuit. If only the hood is on that line your good to go with that wire if it meets requirments. Our code asks for 15 amp breaker and 12/2 grounded wire. If it meets your local requirments, just take it up inside the wall to your new outlet location(usually there is enough wire to reach) and install a box, outlet and cover.

I just took out the range and made an outlet out of the existing wiring.

Frigidaire Microwave plmv169dcd Start Capacitor


The starting capacitor is used to start the hood vent fan motor. It's also called the hood capacitor.

On page 8 of the document you refer to above, on figure O-1, you will find the hood capacitor. It is shown on the control unit (circuit board). I've attached a snapshot of that area below.

Its leads connect to terminals A1 and A3. The hood fan red wire goes to A1, and the yellow wire goes to A3.

That part is not shown in this document as a separate part, so you will have to get it generically from an appliance parts store or electronics supplier, but you will have to order it by value.

You need to look on it and it will say something similar to this:
"7 uF 230V". In this example, that would be a 7 microfarad, 230 volt capacitor.

It's okay to get a capacitor with a little higher voltage rating, but not lower.

The capacitor, if truly bad, may not look bad. It can be quick-checked with an ohmmeter to see if it will charge and discharge (the meter will first indicate low resistance then go high to infinity). This is not a full-blown test, but for this kind of capacitor it may be enough.

You should check the solder connections, also. It's a large part, and sometimes they don't get enough solder on them. The connection may be cracked and just need to be resoldered.

Since a new thread was started, it makes it harder to follow along the saga...

But this problem could be a bad (or jammed or obstructed) hood fan motor, a flaky relay on the control board, a bad cap, or bad wiring.

Starting Capacitor


Found this Frigidaire question posted under Whirlpool but I'll be happy to answer just the same.

The starting capacitor is connected to the line level voltage, as opposed to the high-voltage capacitor evryone warns about.

The starting cap doesn't store enough of a charge to worry about.

The main thing is to be sure the oven is disconnected from the power line. I prefer unplugging it, but some installations make that hard, so you need to turn off the breaker.

Hood fan failure can happen due to many causes:

If a cooktop light bulb blows or is removed or installed while the oven is still connected to the power line, that can damage the circuit board in the area.

The hood fan motor wiring can short.

The starting capacitor can be bad.

There may be dust, hair, debris, etc. in the bearings of the hood fan motor jamming it. The filters are supposed ot help prevent this, but things happen.

Behind the control panel on Whirlpools is a very helpful mini-manual that can help you check and diagnose quite a few problems with these.

On some brands it's located on the control circuit board, in others it's mounted on or in the hood fan assembly.

If you post your brand and model we can probably steere you better on a mini-manual and the capacitor.

The starting capacitor will be on the circuit board. You need to remove the control panel to see it.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

We have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

I am beginning to suspect that you have a failing relay on the control cirucit board. It may have arced and gotten carbon deposits on the contacts, reducing the conductivity. This means less current flow and reduced or non-existent fan action.

After you've checked all this, feel free to contact me about a possible repair. We could have you send us the control panel assembly and the new hood fan so we can analyze and repair it. The second link above takes you to our site.

Kenmore microhood


"Microhood" seems to be a slang term for the "microwave hood" (hood fan or exhaust fan) which is normally part of an over-the-range microwave oven or range. But these should be available separately, as I seem to recall. I would contact home centers such as Lowe's, Home Depot (if they still exist), etc., or a local appliance store.
