Question about Kenmore 62622 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Keypad problem All of a sudden the message "set clock" appeared. When you do, the time sets, but when you try to start the microwave, open the door, turn on the light or turn on the fan, the time disappears and the "set clock" message appears. When you open the door the message lights get very dim. The light inside the microwave is also very dim when you open the door. The fan and the lights undeneath the unit will not turn on. I unplugged the unit and then plugged it back in. No change.

Samsung microwave displays press 1-4...

The SE indicates a short in the keypad membrane, but to cure this! the whole keypad control board should be changed if effort to resolve is decided, I would also suggest checking the pricing.

Just purchased our Cuisinart Stainless Microwave, plugged it in, read the operational instructions and set the clock. As a test, we tried to heat water....does not work. Any suggestions?

Yes! Take it right back to the store for exchange, cause could be a bad magnetron "that heats food" and a couple parts that work together with the magnetron,or there may be issues with the keypad, none of these will be cheap to fix.

Setting the clock on a microwave what is the last action after setting the time. Everything I've tried results in the error message coming up.

According to the manual this is how to set clock.

To set the clock, press "Clock" once or "Timer/Clock" twice (depending on your keypad).
The colon symbol (:) will flash.
Enter time of day. The time appears in the window; the colon continues to flash.
Press "Clock" or "Timer/Clock" again - colon stops flashing; time of day is set.

If you need the manual it is on link below.

Good Luck

Keypad Problems

Sometimes a keypad may not work because the door switches are faulty. When the door switches are working correctly it will allow the keypad to operate. They tell the microwave that the door is closed and the unit is dafe to use.

Many models have 3 door switches, it's wise to get all 3 replaced at once.

If you are handy take it apart. Somewhere inside is a small switch that the door activates. Switch might be broken or a small plastic actuator might be broken. What do you have to lose at this point except time?

Westinghouse microwave WST3502..... Problem:

Press "Clock", type in the time on the keypad and then press "Start". The clock runs a little slow (at least on mine) and I have to reset it about once a month. It gets about 10 - 15 minutes behind after awhile.
