Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Display screen shows an F-6 and it quit working

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 ###.########

I have a GE Over the Range CVM 2072 Microwave. The touchpad screen cracked so it doesn't respond and is frozen.


The part they are replacing is really not that expensive. Where the money comes in is the labor. Most of that cost is just to get them to show up. If you can remove it yourself (with help of course) you can take it in to be repaired. Of you could wait to find one on sale with the upcoming Christmas season and hopefully you can find a deal with free installation. The glass of the touchscreen should not have cracked. It would have taken quite a bit of pressure to crack the glass. Sorry for the bad news.

I Bought An Old Kenmore Space Saver Microwave. It Doesnt Have A Manual. I Dont Know If It Can Go Over Top Of Electric Range Stove. I Dont know How To Install It. So What Im Asking Is How Can I Tell If It...


One quick way would be to look on the top of the unit. Do you see empty screw holes where the screws going through the cabinet above it will go through and screw into the top of that unit? If no open screw holes on top of unit probably not an over the range model. Also, look under the bottom of the machine. do you see feet??? Or just aluminum screen vent filters. If feet and no filters probably a counter top unit.

Although I have changed the light bulbs, the lights that illuminate under the microwave onto the stove top will not work. This is a Kenmore over the stove Microwave Oven Model 721.80592402. Have their...


We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid with a one-year guarantee.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.

mcdevito75 here, It could be the light sockets are dirty from cooking fumes, oil etc, remove power from the sockets and clean them with alcholol and cotton swabs or paper towels etc.

Microwave exploded.


Did it make a popping noise, like a .22 cal pistol? Probably one of the larger capacitors on the power supply blew up.
