Your oven may have separate fuses for the magnetron and the electronics so I suggest you pull the plug, remove the back and look for an accessible fuse holder. Allow the unit to stand unplugged for at least several hours before removing the back panel as there are components inside that can carry a nasty charge for hours.

Our Kenmore microwave turns on, makes noise but has no heat. Any suggestions?


It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

Stopped working mid a 2 min set. no lights no clock display,


The most common cause of this type of failure during the cook cycle is the fuse melts causing a dead condition. To replace the fuse the cabinet has to be removed and the fuse replaced with the same type and amperage. Pay attention to the fuse holder to make sure it isn't burnt or corroded causing a poor connection which overheats the fuse.

Microwave wont heat


look at the $2.00 door safety interlock switch(s) before you replace the very expensive (and hard and dangerous) magnetron.

Microwave won't heat up while in use


It sounds like the unit is in demo mode, they usually have a small d on the screen, try holding the "kitchen timer" pad down for 5 seconds, it should then work, if that doesnt apply to your model look in the trouble shooting guide of your owners manual, it will explain how to deactivate "demo" mode there...Phil

The microwave won't boil water or cook the food we put in. its only saying power 100. what do we do?


I may need more information, however, I suggest that it could be either a dead magnatron or the high voltage fuse link to the magnatron. Check "Demo" mode, WARNING: if you try and replace the fuse or magnatron yourself, make sure of 2 things, 1/ unplug from the wall 2/ make sure the HV Capacitor is discharged before touching anything around the magnatron....also, I may need the model and brand for better diagnosis...

Grinding noise from turning platter mechanism - Kenmore #63252


The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

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

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