Question about Kenmore 80883 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Shuts down after running about 8-9 seconds.

The oven has power. When set to run, it only runs 8-9 seconds and then stops. A code appears in the digital window of F-9. I can start it to run again, but it repeats what I described above. Please advise what may be the problem. Thanks, divrcal1

Re: Shuts down after running about 8-9 seconds.

We'd need the full model number to be sure, but it sounds like an inverter failure. Due to the lethal voltages involved, I do not recommend that a person without training and experience ever work on these models. I would call Sears for service. See

Sharp microwave r1870 only runs for 59 seconds

If it consistently runs for exactly 59 seconds, and shuts off, it's probably the control panel.

If it runs approximately that length of time, you might have a defective thermal protector on the magnetron, or the magnetron is running too warm for some reason.

Microwave runs for 5 seconds then shuts down displaying F9 HELP

If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the touchpad might be at fault. This is not common. Generally speaking, if the microwave display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but some don't, the problem is with the touchpad

Powers off immediately after starting

My immediate reaction would be to cut your losses and buy a new unit as sooner or later you will run into a part that is no longer available.

Microwave starts and runs 2 seconds and stops. Display is jibberish. After resetting date and time, it will again run 2 seconds and then shuts down again.

My NN-T994SFR Panasonic Microwave shuts off after 1 second.

My unit shuts off after about 2 seconds. It seems like it tries to go, but it sounds like it stops working and then 1 or 2 more seconds run off and it shuts down. Then you hit start again and it lights up inside and then shuts down. It's only about 2 or 3 years old.Any solutions?

Shuts Off after 22 seconds

Time to buy a new microwave as it sounds as if the control panel is defective. A new control panel for this micro will run about 95 to 120 bucks + labor depending on where you buy it. I happen to like slightly burnt popcorn as well!! Nothing wrong with thats, as they say great minds think alike.
