Question about Kenmore 62702 Microwave Oven
My Sears Kenmore Microwave was just manufactured in Oct.2004. Last night I put a plastic bowl of frozen veggies inside, closed the door, & pressed # 1; at which time the light went on, the fan started running, the turntable started turning, and I heard a buzz and saw a miniature lightning bolt inside the microwave (just like in the Frankenstein movie)....everything happened at once. but the food never got cold. I put the food in for another 2 mins; everything worked, but the food was still ice cold. Another 2 mins; everything was still working, but still ice cold veggies. What would cause this to happen, and what is in fact could be wrong with this almost brand new microwave? My thanks in advance for your assistance. Johanna.
Normally that aarcing is due to food particles or grease trapped in the waveguide. It will arc over and over until it is removed. The other, worse possibility is that the stirrer or magnetron has failed. If it'sd still under warranty, I would call the nearest Sears store for service. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety & disassembly info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number (without the suffix) here: http://www3.sears.com (the 3 is correct)
