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, 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.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number KOT172S) for more information & help.

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

My kenmore elite 721.66462500 has turntable that attempts to turn but it sparked and popped underneath and seems it won't turn. All else works-IS IT SAFE TO USE?? kenmore elite 721.66462500

When platter doesn't turn, food will not cook evenly. The motor must be replaced. No harm will come to the oven if you continue to use it.

No Light and the turntable is not working

Open your microwave completely unscrewed but make sure it is disconnected from the power; check all the other fuses inside, if it doesn't fix the issue then take it to a pro to get this fix.

Everything works. Time, fan, turntable, light. It

Magnetron and accompanying high voltage diode are usually to blame. Everything else works but the magnetron isn't resonating (providing the proper energy to excite your water molecules).
An appliance repairman can change it for you (typically $180) or you can get a new microwave.

Turntable stopped working

Most of these are belt driven. You need to uncase the unit and check the belt.

Like anything with high voltage, use good safety practices.

Most likely you have a magnetron problem. Easy to replace (DYI) but make sure the high voltage capacitor is fully discharged first against the case.

Microwave turntable doesn't turn. Everything else

The turntable system typically consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

Here is a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

But if you've recently had trouble with the cooktop lights, then the control board may be damaged.

We regularly repair these control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so with a one-year guarantee.
