Question about Microwave Ovens
I have an over the stove Kenmore microwave oven. It was manufactured in April 1999 and installed in our new home in November 1999. It's a 1000 Watt. Today while I was using it, the display screen showed an F-6 and the microwave would not shut off when I opened then closed the door. Nothing would happen when I pushed the cancel key or any other key for that matter. It makes a funny noise when it's running, like something's stuck, and it doesn't heat. There was a recall on it in 2002 for a faulty disk in the ceiling of the microwave.
F6 usually means that the cook relay is stuck on the control board.
So it probably is running whenever the door is closed. This can be dangerous, and can cause a fire.
So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and please do not leave it running unattended.
We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so with a one-year guarantee.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.
A full Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########
