Does the digital display light up at all? Is it completely dead? Are you sure it has power? Have you tried another outlet? If the outlet is good and the unit is completely dead, the internal fuse may have blown. You can try to take the cover off (with the unit unplugged) and look for a blown fuse. Try replacing the fuse with an EXACT fuse of the same rating. Try plugging the unit back in again and see if the unit comes back on. If not, you may have a power supply issue or defective Magnetron.
Please let me know what you find and we'll go from there.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO) / thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.
When checking thermostats, if it has a hood fan thermostat, that should read open, as opposed to the others, which should read closed.

Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits,
such as ###.########
You can just enter your full model number at the Sears parts site.
On the resulting page, look to the right for the blue "View manuals" button. Click there.
That Sears-related site has many free manuals. While the manuals they list there are all free, they will ask you to register.
Many times, the owner's manual will have the installation instructions inside.
If yours is not listed there for free, you would have to order it through the Sears parts site.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

My Kenmore Elite Microwave Model No. 721.64683300 does not seem to be heating well and will shut off and flash an F9 code. What does the F9 code mean

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.
