SOURCE: Owners manual for Kenmore Elite Microwave Model 66462

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

You can just enter your full model number at the Sears parts site.

On the resulting page, look to the right for the blue "View manuals" button. Click there.

That Sears-related site has many free manuals. While the manuals they list there are all free, they will ask you to register.

Many times, the owner's manual will have the installation instructions inside.

If yours is not listed there for free, you would have to order it through the

SOURCE: My Kenmore solid state microwave just shut off and will not come back on so whats the problem??

Hello, welcome to Fixya!

The unit not powering on is an indication that it has a power fault.

First, remove the microwave's power cord from the wall, wait for about 30mins, then plug it back in. It may cool by then and might power on. If it doesn't power on, plug it into another outlet, to make sure there electricity entering into the unit.

If plugging into another power outlet doesn't power it on then the unit is most likely having a power problem.

When electric current comes from the power outlet into the microwave, it goes straight into the power supply board which then circulates the current into the unit. So if the microwave doesn't power on, the first thing is to make sure there is power entering into the machine.

So check the power cord, if it is a 3-pin plug, it must have a fuse in it. check the fuse if it is not blown. if fuse is intact, then power supply board should be checked.

If any machine or electronics device doesn't power on, it means its having a power problem. It might have worked fine in the past, but that's electronics for you. Power surge, irregular power supply, excess power supply, etc can affect the unit thereby not making it to power on.

This microwave must have a power supply board in it where power enters from the mains. A capacitor, fuse, diode, etc may have been defective on the power board and maybe that's why its not making the microwave turn on. There might also be some disconnection or something, inside the unit which is not making it to power on.

To actually find out what's wrong, you need to disassemble the unit with a screw driver and check what's wrong. You will be needing a meter and continuity tester in order to read the components on the power board, once you detect any bad component, you can make necessary replacement at any electronics accessories store within our vicinity.You might also find visible bad component without testing with a meter. This is the only way by which you can detect the problem.

Of course, testing the power board with a meter will require someone that has the ability. So it you can't, then you might be needing the help of a repairman or you can call a friend that has the ability to help you out.

I wish you the best of luck.

Regards.

After pressing start, light goes on but not operating. Senor issue?


I had a similar problem once with an older Kenmore microwave, which at the time, were actually made by LG. After removing the cabinet, there was a small automotive type fuse in a clip-in fuse holder which proved to be "open" after checking it for continuity with a test meter. I replaced the fuse with the EXACT type and rating, and continued to use the oven for several more years until I gave it away. Please note, that microwave ovens are not something that you want to mess around with. Make absolutely certain that you have unplugged it before doing anything. In my case, I suspect the after several years of trouble-free use, the fuse had failed, -likely due to age. In your case, it may be a similar issue, so you might want to see if your microwave oven has a similar replaceable fuse. Beyond that, I would strongly suggest taking it to an approved service facility. Also, NEVER operate the microwave until you have replaced all covers, cabinet, etc. to it's original state.

What year is my kenmore solid state microwave? Ive tried to look it up but i cant seem to find anything on it


All microwave ovens are required by law to have the date of manufacture printed right on the label that has the model and serial number on it. Look inside the microwave, usually just inside the door.

Unit "Locked"


"Locked" on the display is an indication that your microwave oven has a Safety Lock feature that allows you to lock the keyboard. It can inadvertently be set as a result of the consumer pressing and holding the wrong buttons and during power interruptions. You need to refer to the owner's manual under the Operator Controls section to see which buttons you need to press and hold to turn the feature on/off. If you no longer have an owner's manual, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER, so that I can provide you with a more conclusive solution. To answer your initial question, the oven SHOULD still be operational, but it needs to be unlocked in order to fully determine this. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: On many microwave oven models simply pressing and holding the CANCEL/OFF button for 3 to 5 seconds will turn the lock on/off. If not...please let me know.

Kenmore 1200 watt sparking when warming empty plates


Unless specifically stated in the manual, you shouldn't use the microwave for warming plates. That is not it's intended use.

I suspect the microwave circuit has failed in some manner.

Reply the specific Sears model number (in the form xxx.yyyyyyyy), and I can help further.

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.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
You can probably find an exploded view by entering your FULL model number here: http://www3.sears.com (the 3 is correct)
