Kenmore 665.61612100 microwave oven

When I start the oven I have a new, strange sound. It sounds like something is grinding or rubbing. When I stop the oven, the sound stops. Are there belts that could be wearing out or a motor that needs to be greased? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

No belts, no grease needed.

And thank you for posting the full model number. That really helps!

It could be the stirrer or stirrer motor. These are located behind the cover in the ceiling of the oven.

It may be the turntable is rubbing or you may have a bad turntable support or motor.

These are the most likely suspects. It will take some investigation.

Our Kenmore microwave oven recently stopped heating. The lights, turning plate and controls all work but with no cooking is occurring. The last time I attempted to heat something up I heard a cracking...

The most likely cause is a bad magnetron, "heats food" the other two possibilities are the high voltage capacitor and diode. The cost to repair will a approach a new microwave oven.

I have a Kenmore Microwave Oven.The turn table stopped rotating and the unit does not heat. It sounds like it is working but it does not heat. Does the turntable have something to do with this?

What you probably hear is the fan. If it's not heating the problem is almost certainly the magnetron. The magnetron is the main component in every microwave and can be very expensive tp replace. You'll be better off buying a new microwave. The prices on new ones have dropped dramatically, I saw a 700 watt unit selling for $50.00.

My model nn-p295wf microwave stopped working ,all power just stopped, about a year ago. I took it to a repair shop and they replaced the DIODE and the fuse, then it worked again. Afew weeks ago it happened...

Replace the magnetron, safety fuse and diode as a set and check the door interlock switches.
That should get it working for another year or so.
Don't forget microwave mains fuses are special sand filled and semisurge type.

I have a kenmore microwave hood combination model 721.80019. The blower unit has recently started squealing when we run the microwave. I am not sure if it is rubbing up against something or not. Is there...


I just found out the same problem with mine.
I think the bearing of the fan motor has problems.
I took it apart and now looking for a used or new fan motor unit.

Grinding noise from turning platter mechanism - Kenmore #63252

The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

You can usually find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number here at the Sears parts site.

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

Noise on starting up

If the unit is cooking ok, then it sounds like possibly your cooling fan has the blower wheel rubbing and when the rpm's come up, the blower wheel migrates away from the rubbing surface. It is very common for a blower wheel to loosen up, or a bearing in the bottom end of the blower to fail, causing the sound.
If you dare to venture into the unknown, you can investigate the noise and maybe be able to adjust the attitude of the blower wheel or fan blade, which ever is loose

Post me if I can be of more help.

Thank you,
