Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Microwave issue I have a kenmore over the range microwave. It is about 6 years old. I have never had any issues with it untill now. We have have a few issues with on and off arcing up by the top stirrer plate. We continued to use it and now it has a hole burned into the plate. I removed the unit and bleed out the voltage. I removed the stirrer motor and tested it and seems to be not working. Could this be the problem or do you think this is a result of another issue?

It could be a bad motor. You really need to connect it to power to fully test it. It may also be that the stirrer is binding.

After pressing start, light goes on but not operating. Senor issue?


I had a similar problem once with an older Kenmore microwave, which at the time, were actually made by LG. After removing the cabinet, there was a small automotive type fuse in a clip-in fuse holder which proved to be "open" after checking it for continuity with a test meter. I replaced the fuse with the EXACT type and rating, and continued to use the oven for several more years until I gave it away. Please note, that microwave ovens are not something that you want to mess around with. Make absolutely certain that you have unplugged it before doing anything. In my case, I suspect the after several years of trouble-free use, the fuse had failed, -likely due to age. In your case, it may be a similar issue, so you might want to see if your microwave oven has a similar replaceable fuse. Beyond that, I would strongly suggest taking it to an approved service facility. Also, NEVER operate the microwave until you have replaced all covers, cabinet, etc. to it's original state.

Microwave starts by itself


Likely a microprocessor/control panel issue. Microwave ovens that sit over ranges often have electronic failures due to heat, humidity, and grease, from the range below, which come into contact with their main circuit boards.

PLEASE HELP!!!!!! I had a house built 6 years ago and had an over the range microwave installed. The first one that came with the house was a GE. after like 6 months it would run for a few seconds and...


It may be that the exhaust duct is blocked or the filter is dirty.

That can cause the oven to run chronically hot, which damages the microwave.

The whole duct needs to be checked for any blockage.

You will need to remove the oven from the wall.

To remove it from the wall, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

Do you know what the average electric cooktop lifespan is? We have a Kenmore that is 9 years old and working fine. However, we are in the midst of a renovation and are wondering if it wouldn't be wise to...


The life span of the range depends on it's use or abuse.... Common issues are burners and the connections that the burner plugs into. These are not hard to change out.... There is nothing that can make the stove useless, if you keep after it. Newer units do a better job of retaining the heat within the unit, oven wise....Which is nice.

A gas range is certainly nicer, so they say. It is faster, but has one odd issue: if you boil water over, you can put out the flame and have raw gas running in. Most work this way, expensive units have thermal sensors that would turn off the gas flow in flame out condition....

My wife loves her gas range....

I have a 21y/o full sized Kenmore 700w microwave that I want to keep. Worked fine until this morning. Everything works except the heat.


Sadly Kenmore only offers parts for 10 years. The truth is a new microwave for 50 dollars will be much more energy efficient than your 21 yr. old model
