Question about Kenmore 62622 Microwave Oven

Open Question

Kenmore Microwave hood combination model 721.62624

The power (noise while operating) drops as soon as I turn it on. The food gets hot but not as much as it used to for the same amount earlier. For example a cup of water is tepid after a minute now, whereas it used to be pretty hot earlier. Somebody please advice.

    Is your voltage at the power outlet correct at 110 to 125 volts AC?

    Is the internal cooling fan running when you cook?

    When I say internal
    cooling fan, I do not mean the hood vent exhaust fan which you can turn
    on and off manually.




    I'm instead talking
    about the internal fan which comes on automatically whenever you
    microwave.




    It is vital that the
    cooling fan runs, or the magnetron will be destroyed.

The owner's manual should spell that all out.

But if you don't still have yours, you can download one via Sears' "Manage My Home" site here. While it's free, you will have to register.

(You *may* be able to download it here without logging in. If not, go ahead and register. It's free.)

SOURCE: F7 Error code on Kenmore

On the tech insert found in a cavity under the cover of my Kenmore MHC, the F7 code means the inverter board ($90 - $130 street price Fall 2008) is bad and needs replacement. I am having this problem, and verified that the magnetron was not shorted to ground with an ohm meter. I verified with a volt meter that the magnetron was not getting any voltage applied across the cathode from the inverter board when the microwave is running ("WARNING"- don't do this test with the magnetron connected.) I have an inverter board on order.

The problem is likely on the control panel, which we repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

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 often can affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inopoerable or stuck on.

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, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
