Question about Kenmore 62622 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore model 665.68611891 micro. The door pops open

The door keeps popping open during cooking causing the oven to stop. Is there an adjustment? If so where is it? Thanks.

Per se there is no real adjustment, but the linkage that holds the two nylon hooks on the door in may need to be lubricated with some lithium grease made for nylon or neoprene parts. The sliding neoprene part that holds the hooks in place is not sliding all the way down into position. That part once you take the cover off is right up against the right front hand side of your microwave exactly inline with the two hooks and next to the control panel assembly. Take the cover off and manually opening and closing the door you will see how that part moves up and down to release and secure the door in place. You will be able to see where to apply the lubricant which should be anywhere two or more nylon or neoprene parts rub against one another. Let me know how it goes or if you need more guidance.

What make and model?? Sounds like it is not a carousel model. Have you tried a "Micro Go Round" ?? Otherwise, try rotating the 'plate' each quarter cycle...ie; every 30 seconds on a 2 minute cook time. Be sure to push the stop button first before you open the door to save wear and tear on the door switches......

The microwave wont respond to the timer. It keeps cooking unless you open the door. After the timer runs out it seems like it cuts off but there is still a low buzzing sound and it is still cooking. Have...


low buzzing can be a power relay or a (solid-state)
triac which both supply power in their own right to the power transformer to operate the magnetron tube,even though you say it quits cooking when you open the door,i would still check the micro-switches in the door for proper alignment and operation, because it can be a door switch mis-alignment or a leaking triac still supplying power to the unit

It may just be a bad door switch. See this file.

Yes, this is caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door or loose door switch mount.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

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

Keypad only works


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.

OLD Kenmore Microwave Oven


A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the magnetron thermostat to open. Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

If it's intermittent or random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or a loose fuse holder.

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

Runs but wont heat up


Probably magnatron is bad. Best test is to substitute a known good one. There are others but you are in the 4000 volt area of the unit.
