Our Kenmore microwave doesnt turn on when time is entered. It lights and the fan starts but the microwave and turntable dont come on.

Problem started and pushing up on the door helped at first but now doesn't.

The door switch is either bad or out of adjustment.

SOURCE: Push to Start switch does not Start Kenmore Elite Dryer Mod # 11065944401

A likely cause is failure of the relay.
the start switch provides a current to energise a relay,
the relay latches open (draws energize current from switched circuit) until current path is broken by the timer or door switches.
if the wires have come off the relay(happens) or the coil of the relay has failed, there will be no start.

With plug pulled
trace the wires from the start switch, to the first device, looks like this 8fc4980.jpgmay be opaque. if any of the wires have come off refit them and retry start.
relay diagram looks like this 5a14628.gif test with meter for conduct between terminals labelled 85 86 (or Coil in other labelling standard),

or take to appliance parts store, can test and provide replacement on site.
Appliance part store will likely provide part labelled whirlpool, not a problem all the small parts are interchangeable

NOTE dryer relay may have up to 8 terminals,
2 for coil
3 (open close common) for each phase

There is a thermocouple on the inside that prevents the dryer from getting too hot. If this burns out this opens the circuit so the dryer will not work but all other functions will work.

SOURCE: My Kenmore 110.66962501 dryer doesn't start.

if your sure the thermal fuse is good,, check the start switch,, making sure the dryer select setting is set to something other than off, also, the door switch . you can Jumper both these switches, I'd try the door switch first as they go out more often . if you have a meter and want to test the switch Some door switches have only two metal prongs extending from the body, while others have three. Those with three terminals will have a common (COM) terminal, a normally closed (N.C.) terminal, and a normally open (N.O.) terminal. Those switches with only two terminals will have either a common terminal and a normally open terminal, or a common terminal and a normally closed terminal. We are providing directions for testing a door switch with three terminals. If you are dealing with a door switch that has only two terminals, ignore the part of this test that does not apply to you.Use your ohmmeter to test your switch for continuity. Begin by setting your ohmmeter to measure resistance at a scale of R x 1. If yours is a two-wire switch, touch each tester probe to each of the switch's terminals. You should receive a reading of infinity. While the probes are still touching the switch's terminals, press in on and hold the switch. The reading should change to zero.

Kenmore Elite Microwave oven 63792 doesn't heat - all lights, turntable, fan, etc. work just fine.


Most likely it would be a bad magnetron since the light, turntable, and vent fan are running.

My still fairly new kenmore 1000 watt microwave appears to be operating fine but doesnt heat. What might be the problem?


When you hit "Start" to microwave, do the inside light, cooling fan, and turntable all come on?

Any unusual noises? Is it louder or quieter than usual?

We have a sound clip of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are operating here.

Post a new help request with the answers to these questions as well as the full model number from the tag on or in the unit.

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

Turns on by itself and turntable does not rotate


You may have a control board issue. Thank God for safety switches.
This is a problem that an integrated circuit tech. can repair, but it may be costly.
Decide how much you want to put into this oven vs. buying a new one.

Contact me once you decide and I can help you find a service center.

Thank you,

Nnt553w panasonic microwave. Whilst heating something he oven stopped and the display said refer to operating instructions. Now seems to be working but doesn't heat.


When you enter the time and press Start:

Does the inside light come on?

Does the turntable rotate?

Do you hear the internal cooling fan running?

Does the time count down?

Everything works... except the heat!


Maybe one of the fuses, get an engineer to look at it, for safety reasons.
