Question about Kenmore 80412 Microwave Oven

Sears Kenmore Microwave Model 401.80086700

We purchase this microwave "used" from Sears over a year ago. It still works fine, but over the past two weeks we have noticed a low range humming noise when the unit is operating. I checked and cleaned the turntable as this was one item mentioned by Sears in the troubleshooting guide. The noise occurs whether or not the turntable is installed. The noise is not constant but it is annoying when it occurs. Can anyone tell me if this could develop into a serious problem and potential failure of the unit?

They made Microwaves in 1977? wow. I would try an appliance junkyard, or ebay. We have used a microwave safe plate of the right size and it worked well. Good luck!

Model 721.63259301 does not heat, everything else is ok. 5 years old, repair? Replace? Thank You Fred Liethen


My Kenmore 721.63259301 would not heat items up so I came here and saw the parts required and was just about to order them when I checked the online owners manual and found this. FULL FIVE-YEAR WARRANTY ON
THE MAGNETRON For five years from the date of purchase, if the
magnetron in this Kenmore microwave oven
fails due to a defect in material or workmanship,
Sears will repair it free of charge.
My microwave has a manufacture date of July 2009 so I will be taking it right to the closest Sears repair center for a free repair. I suggest everyone do the same.

Where can I get a HV transformer for Microwave?


I went on-line and found a site that gave answers to similar problems. I found that no power to the the control board usually meant a transformer issue. I checked the leads on the transformer (with a meeter) and found that it was shot. Now I need a replacement transformer, at a reasonable price, or else I will purchase a new Microwave.

Kenmore micriwave won't heat!


Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:

http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html (if it is NOT shorted, it's probably fine)
http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/mag_test.html
http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/xformer.html

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

Your biggest suspects will be a bad connection or relay on the control panel, a bad connection on the magnetron terminals, a bad magnetron, a shorted high voltage rectifier diode or a bad high voltage transformer.

You can find exploded views and part numbers by entering your model number at the Sears parts site.

A full Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########

You may be able to find better part prices than Sears here.

Your magnetron may have a 5-9 year warranty, so check your manual for that. Sears may send you a magnetron if it's bad and warranty.

Kenmore elite microwave touch screen stopped working


Same thing happened to us. We just came back from Sears, where we bought another. Just for giggles, my wife suggested unplugging the old one and plugging it back in again. It works now. New one's going back to the store.

Kenmore microwave


Since it's under warranty, they will replace or repair it at their choice, and if they replace it, it will be the same model or a "like model".

I'd ask them about it.
