Question about Kenmore Microwave Ovens

Open Question

Kenmore mircrowave model 721.66222500 Pretty accurate description from grandson it has lightening in it. Was running when you shut the door and timer at 0. Did not shut off when pushing stop, had to open door. Have had it unplugged for a couple of days. Plugged it back in and heated up a cup of water fine. Is this safe to continue to use? What would cause this problem? Thank you.

SOURCE: microwave runs when the door is open.. stops when you shut it.

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

This can be caused by slamming the door or by habitually opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Why does fuse keeps blowing within mircrowave


Hello friend, thanks for your post!

Based off the information you have provided I understand that your fuse blows every time your Electrolux microwave starts up. It sounds like it could be an issue within the control panel, capacitor, or circuit breaker. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose your microwave to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts-Matt

Grandson came up under it and caused the hinges to not hold the door shut


If the door doesn't work right it is time to buy another microwave. Microwave leaks can be dangerous.

The light is out in the mircrowave and it does not work. When you enter the time and press start it says "door"


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch mount, which are pretty simple problems to fix.

Our file on door switches is here.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

Also at our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If you don't find yours, or if you want to look at it without disassembling the oven, you can download it here.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number (KBMC140HSS0, KBMC140HSS02, KBMC140HSS03, KBMC140HSS04, or KBMC140HSS05) here.

Model 665.66100691 light, fan and turntable not operating


This model # looks like a Sears Kenmore(probably made by Whirlpool). This description sounds like a bad door switch- secondary interlock. It could be a cook relay on the control PCB. It's hard to say without being able to touch it.

Microwave won't function.


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount (which are pretty simple problems to fix) or occasionally a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

Also see http://www.microwavedisplay.com/doorsw.txt

You can usually find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number at the Sears parts site.

A full Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########

There may 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.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.
