Question about Kenmore 63252 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

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.

Samsung microwave MW1430WA often refuses to respond to any control buttons. Sometimes it shows ''ON'', sometimes ''OFF'' and on these occasions will often restore Time by pressing ''Pause/Cancel'',...


If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and please do not leave it running unattended.

You have a failing membrane keypad.

On some models, you have to peel off the old one and replace it.

On some models, you remove your controller and move your circuit board into a new frame with a keypad already installed.
