Question about Kenmore 63252 Microwave Oven

Leaving microwave on pause

What can happen if I leave microwave on pause instead of hitting stop button after removing food? Does the microwave oven eventually goes to stop, or could it start up again on its own (assuming no defects)? Thanks!

Unless the control electronics fail, leaving the oven paused won't hurt anything but it will enable someone unfamiliar with to restart it with nothing in the cavity and this can damage the magnetron. Unless you are just checking the food for progress, I wouldn't recommend leaving it paused and 'armed.'

Magic Chef microwave model#mco165ub cant seem to turn up the power level. when I hit the power level button it cycles through -20, 0 and +20 but nothing happens when I hit enter.


Try unplugging the unit for a few minutes. The microprocessor on the control panel may have locked up. Leave it unplugged for at least 15 minutes to see if it will reset.

Food in microwave is burning on edge and cold in the center


you may find the old unit was lower watts so took longer & cooked/heated better all the way through. a way to fix this is lower temp settings or pause and stir the food to help heat it up more even.

Whirlpool microwave turns on and have to open door to stop it


Has it got wet inside at all? If so it could sort itself out after drying out.
But I would keep leaving the door open as you do, or replace it. Because it is a safety risk, if it came on while empty, after a while it could set fire to itself.

This is usually a defective or loose bottom door switch or that switch's mount is loose, misaligned or broken.
It's usually caused by opening the door while it's cooking instead of hitting "stop" first) or slamming the door or both.

The start button stopped working. Everything else works on my MCD990B.


I think you are right on the money, the keypad control board is vital to the operation of the microwave oven, if the problem cannot be resolved it will require a complete replacement of the above mentioned part, unfortuneately cost should be considered.

    Turned it on to heat food and make a loud noise , did not heat food and have electrical short ordor.


    there is something metal inside that is causing this look for any screws or anything that may have been switch with a repair. what happens is the metal causes the microwaves to reflect back to the magnetron instead inside the food causing noises and sometimes sparks and odor. find the metal object remove it and this should solve your problem
