Fan failure /Intermittent heating


quite likely your microwave is trying to prevent it self from self destruct, because if the fan is not keeping the electronics components cool enough while its running the high limit thermo will disconnect power from the heating circuit, if the fan is not working it should be replaced , that's a techs job.

Vent blower won't stop


I had the same problem with the fan not wanting to shut off after the repair. Once I set the clock though I was able to push the button to shut the fan off. So try setting your clock first and see if that helps.

We have a kenmore ultra wave microwave and the fan has stopped working and now the microwave won't operate. Any suggestions?


see this causes and fix it .God bless you
Exhaust Fan Motor If the exhaust fan does not run the fan motor might be bad. Remove the fan motor from the microwave oven and see if the blades can be turned by hand. They should turn very freely, if they're stiff the fan motor will need to be replaced. The fan motor can also burn out. To test this use an Ohm meter. The motor should have continuity. If it does
Thermostat If the microwave exhaust fan is not working the thermostat might be defective. The thermostat senses the air temperature and turns on the fan as needed, if it's defective it won't turn on the fan. Watch our video on testing thermostats.

Main Control Board If the microwave exhaust fan is not working check the exhaust fan motor and wiring. If they are good the main control board might be defective.

The fan starts up and runs on its own and we are cooking


That is a normal safety feature.

That's only covered in a very subtle note in the hood fan section of your owner's manual:

NOTE:If the temperature gets too hot around the
microwave oven, the fan in the vent hood will
automatically turn on at the HIGH setting to cool the
oven. It may stay on up to an hour. When this
occurs, the fan can not be turned off.

If for some reason you don't have your owner's manual, you can download it here.

Enter your model number as MV1610ST with no spaces.

You will need the free DJVU viewer to view or print your manual.

Fan and light constantly on


which fan? the exhaust fan or the control board cooling fan? the cooling fan is controlled by a thermostat just behind the control panel. it turns the fan to protect the board from overheating.
