Question about Kenmore Microwave Ovens
If it has a turntable that does move it usually means one of three things bad:
1. A diode many use for power purposes for the heating.
2. A circuit board called an inverter that powers the heating and controls the Magnetron.
3. A Magnetron which does the actual heating.
Typical diode which cannot read shorted or open across.
Typical Magnetron which usually cannot be tested by normal means but has to be replaced to know if good or bad.

you may have gotten a power surge and that can cause some funny things to happen, 1st is there power to the oven, 2nd if so there may be an internal fuse protector built in to the oven, check with the manual for anything of that sort listed. if not you may have to take it in and have it repaired by a pro. there is a lot of voltage in these ovens and unless you know what you are doing a person could get hurt

Hello, please use the chart to determine which stove you have. You will have
to look at the model number. The first 3 numbers will be the series on
the chart. In most cases an F1 error would require replacement of the
electronic control. This part is commonly refered to as an EOC or ERC.
However this type of repair is usually reserved for repair specialists.
