Question about Microwave Ovens

2 Answers

I have a Kenmore Elite Microwave Rangehood combination model # 721.63662300 It has worked great for years, but for the last 2 weeks it takes almost twice as long to heat foods as it used to. Example: it used to take 1.3 minutes to heat a mug of water for tea, but now that same mug of water takes 3 minutes. I don't hear any strange noises or smell anything out of the ordinary, are there any suggestions on what to try next?

    Do you know where I would find a replacement magnatron or about how much they cost. If the price is not too bad I will try and replace it myself. Thanks for the help.

Hi. this is a sign of a weakening Magnetron assembly. this is the actual device that produces the heating affect. you will need to replace this device soon. it is weak at the moment but, its weakness will increase over time to the point that it will stop heating.

Neff microwave combination oven


no solution sorry but we also have a Neff mw/combi oven which keeps blowing for no apparent reason, the Neff repair man has looked at it 4 times and practically replaced every component -power module, operating module,relay board, door switches but it`s just gone again! The model is a H5972N0GB/01 and it is approx 3 yrs old, no problem for the first 2 years .Time to write to Neff -is yours the same model?
