Kenmore Microwave Problem



Have a Kenmore model 665.61629100 microwave. We had a power surge and the micro wave is not working properly. The clock works and the light comes on inside, but, it will not operate to heat up food. There is a "d" showing to the right of the time on the LED. Is this a code for some error?


Thanks for your help.

Re: Kenmore Microwave Problem

"d" may mean demo mode.

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Let us know if the hard reset doen't fix it.

Why would my kenmore micro wave model 721.66463500 just go dead, no power

There may be a weakened connection around the main power supply 'Transformer'. Sometimes the connections can overheat but if they are removed and replaced it may again make contact. I've had a similar problem and found parts from similar brands to replace the connecting/wiring parts. I soon realized that I could have removed the extra pieces around the wires without causing any electrical problems. That is the minor repair. The major repair would be to replace one of the main features (large or small) which assist the transformer in power functions. Take your time examining the tiniest parts and pieces.

Inverters / Microwaves

A pure sine wave inverter will usually allow a microwave to run quieter and cooler and more efficiently all around.

So the oven has 850 watts of cooking power?

That would mean its power consumption could be as high as 1700W while cooking, but it could surge or spike higher when it first turns on due to the inductive load it offers.

I would think a 3000W inverter should handle that, but that also depends on its peak surge wattage.

As long as the microwave works properly in a normal wall outlet, I'd say maybe it's too much for this inverter and I'd check back with the dealer on this for his input.

Bottom line: Make sure the oven works well in a wall outlet, and check your inverter's peak surge rating.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
