"My Kenmore Elite Microhood just stopped working. No power, no nothing.
It has power from the outlet, but no power in the system at all. I was
using it to cook potatoes and it just stopped in the middle of cooking.
Service man thought it was a fuse, it was not, all fuses are good. Any
help with this would be appreciated."

Re: Kenmore Microhood not working
I think it may be an internal fuse or a fusible link. You also have a series of contacts and switches inside that are set in place by the mfr. for safety. You could get it repaired for 50-75 dollars or a new one for 125-150 dollars. If you have checked the internal fuse, then just get a new one if the other one is older than 3-4 years.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

This is not usually a consumer repairable fault - but you may be able to clear it simply by unplugging from the outlet for a minute or two and plugging it back in again. Try it out and if it works, you're all set - otherwise it might need to be seen by a pro.
F9 is normally a bad door switch or door switch mount.
you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety
information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.
You can probably find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number here at the Sears parts site.
should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the
control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is
very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
Same thing happened to us. We just came back from Sears, where we bought another. Just for giggles, my wife suggested unplugging the old one and plugging it back in again. It works now. New one's going back to the store.
our tray that goes around and back and forth jumps the tracks and stops and turns the other way I can put it back on track before it makes a round it jumps the tracks again and starts going the other way is there a part that need replaced
Sometimes they get heated up and bend up in the middle so they don't make good contact with the coupler.
The way I fix this is to heat the support over a stove flame, then place a heavy weight on it so it holds the legs up in place a bit until it cools.
Here it is step by step:
1. Apply heat at points where each legs meet the hub (stove flame)
2. Place end of each leg on an object so that the bottom of the hub
is held up about 1/8" off the work surface.
3. Place heavy object on hub so the bottom touches the work surface.
4. Let it cool.
5. Test it.
6. If it still does not work, increase the height of objects in step two.
You can find an exploded view of your microwave at http://www3.sears.com (yes, the 3 is there).
Ref # 3009 on the drawing is the turntable motor.
I would grab it by the shaft and gently try to turn it. If it's locked up or grinding, that's a sign it's bad.

Be sure to unplug the oven before you work on it. Hope this helps!
Generally the F9 code indicates a problem with the door latch (usually upper) or with the control board.
You can do a Google search for my text file "doorsw.txt" to help you diagnose and repair door switch trouble.
BUT - since it always stops at 53 seconds, that leads me to think you have trouble with the control unit (circuit board / controller assembly).
Once you read and digest the info on door switches, please feel free to do an updated post and I'll be happy to help you further.
It may be corrupted ROM in the control unit. But let us know what you find out.
