You posted this question three times without once deigning to give the make and model of your oven. When you post again, PLEASE include the make and model. Without that info there's very little we can do to help.

Light on keypad doesn't work on some of our scanners. Can this be fixed?

Even though this was asked in the microwave oven forum, it was a lucky ;) accident, because I happen to specialize in repairing controllers and displays on circuit boards of most all types.

But FixYa doesn't always notify us Experts of follow-ups, so please contact me directly with your unit's full model number, any FCC ID number found on the label, and remind me of your detailed symptoms.

What would be the best replacement for a Whirlpool Oven/Microwave combo unit? Model RMC275PD. Would I purchase a 27 or 30 inch?

It may be affordable to repair it. Feel free to contact me (below) and remind me of your full model and symptoms. Whirlpool customer service is here and you can also enter your model number on that page to download your owner's manual, installation instructions, etc.
You can ask them if they have a "drop-in replacement oven" for your model.

7 yr old unit emitting burning smell. Everything still works. Is it worth trying to get repaired or just buy a new one.

is the burning smell just when you use the convection oven or when you use the microwave , reason I ask is that if its only coming from the convection oven then chances are you have something melted on the heat elements , this can be cleaned off with a dry brillo pad

What are capacitors and were are they located in the unit? Also were can they be purchased?

You should NEVER attempt repairs to a microwave oven. The case is fixed with special screws that only qualified service engineers can undo. Inadvertent operation can blind and damage tissue irreparably.

The microwave portion of my micro/convection oven has stopped working. I cannot find a repair outfit in my area that works on this brand.

Do you still have your original warranty? Sometime it cones with the listing of the authorized repair service, to look for the nearest one.
Else, open the webstite of you unidentified oven, look if it has some contact info and ask THEM
Now, without even knowing where is "your area" and the make of your device, it's IMPOSSIBLE to tell you where you migth find a repair outfit

Seems to work fine does not heat up food

On every microwave oven which I've been asked to repair with the same symptoms, it's the magnetron which has failed. This is the bit which generates the microwaves and it fails more frequently on high wattage ovens.

If your oven is under warranty then send it for repair. If not, then you'll need to judge whether the repair estimate makes sense compared to a new oven.

DIY repairs are usually very straightforward if you can get the parts, usually just a straight job of unscrewing and reassembling. In addition to the magnetron (sometimes called a Klystron) you'll need a microwave gasket. Sometimes it's supplied with the magnetron, but it's a small wire mesh doughnut which fits around the neck of the magnetron and gets crushed into position as the screws are tightened. If you cannot get this part then do not attempt the repair as it is vital for safety. It must always be replaced whenever the magnetron is removed for any reason.
