Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Question: Our Kenmore elite microwave model 66561689101 intermitting on and off. Most of the time it turns off just after it starts and then makes a weird screech sound and then starts back up and is good to go. However, sometimes it continues to turn on and off intermittingly. Not sure if this could be the thermal cut out going bad?

Only thing mechanical on nuker is the cooling fan assembly and /or the turntable platter. Something not turning properly is responsible for screeching noise. And if something is not turning properly there could be a sensor to detect this and shut unit down.

The heat is regulated with a Klixon mounted next to the blower housing near the vent pipe so it can judge the temperature of the air coming out of the drum.Right next to it is a melting type fuse.6aed02c.jpg If the dryer runs and gets too hot the fuse will melt.But the dryer will still run. So if the fuse is good(continuity) and the dryer control(cycle) thermostat is also good then you should have power going to the gas valve assembly when the machine is running unless the timer is in the no heat or wrinkle free/cool down mode. When the gas valve assembly is energized the flame sensor a%20flame%20sensor%202.bmp flame sensor mounted outside the burner chamber detects the heat from the ignitor. When the heat is very intense then the sensor shuts down the igniter
a%20igniter.jpg Igniter and that frees up the power so that the coils can be fully energised and open the gas gates. The gas comes out and hits the red hot igniter and you have ignition. It stays on for maybe 2 or 3 minutes or until the control thermostat is satisfied and shuts down power to the gas valve assembly.
If your gas dryer has a good flame sensor and a good igniter AND the dryer will work some and quit, replace these: dryer%20coil%20kit.jpg Gas operator coils The coils get hot and quit on these machines when they get a little age on them. It is aggrevating because it is a hard to diagnose thing. But well worth the 20 bucks.

If you have tried to reset the microwave oven by turning the mains power off and on without success then it is likely the display is faulty.
The only way to repair is replace the control panel board. This can cost a lot of money.

Kenmore microwave oven power fluctuations


The magnatron, HV capacitor or the transformer. Dangerous place to work in the High Voltage section. Cap can hold a charge so short to ground after unplugging when working around it. Unplug one at a time starting with the mag and see which one is causing the draw.

I have a Kenmore model 66561689101 that doesn't heat properly anymore. What is wrong?


The most common problems of microwave oven are the HV capacitor, HV diode and lastly the magnetron which is the main part of M O. check the capacitor and diode first, if its okay, then you have a decision to make. replace the magnetron or the whole unit. magnetron are costly

Kenmore elite microwave oven displays "Locked" and will not respond


My Kenmore Elite microwave (don't have the model number in front of me) also mysteriously locked its own keypad (we were sitting in an adjacent room, heard a strange beep, and got up to find the LED reading "Locked."). I pressed and held down the Stop/Clear button for ~10 seconds and it returned to normal.

Noise/humming while cooking; especially popcorn; intermitent on other food


Popcorn is heated by a metallic insert in the bag. This causes some additional power consumption by the magnetron. It is no cause for alarm.
