Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore Microwave Oven - Elite Series - only about 3 years old, keeps blowing fuses - any advice on what might be the problem? I think the first fuse blew during a power outage, not sure if that had anything to do with it, but when I replaced the fuse it blew again just after turning the oven on for about 3 seconds.

Make sure you have the oven plugged into a designated outlet...what I mean by that is...the outlet your plugging your oven into must be wired right to the fuse box by itself...because the oven will take most of the power from that one fuse for itself...also make sure the fuse is rated for what the oven needs....on the back of the oven, it will tell you how much current it takes...(???Amps), if it says 12 amps for example...the fuse should be 15 amps...if its lower that 12...it will keep blowing....if all of what I said check out then your oven has developed a short circuit...most likely the high voltage diode or magnetron....have it serviced....

3 year old OTR microwave left on with nothing in it. now shows no power,board,lights or fan. what do I check first?


You have to open it up and see if you can find the power fuse, usually a BUSS 15amp Slo Blo that protects the Microwave Tube from drawing too much current and causing a fire. These fuses degrade over time or some get through that are not quite 15 amps and blow.

I believe mine blew a fuse as well


Usually, when your microwave oven doesn't work it all, the internal fuse (thermal fuse) is blown. This fuse protects both you and the oven. When it blows, you need to have a qualified appliance repair technician replace it.
many people have been electrocuted with an unplugged microwave due to the enormous residual charge inside.

you can now get a new microwave at walmart for fifty bucks..........why monkey with a ten year old unit.

Kenmore Micro/Oven fuse keeps blowing


Disconnect the connector to the primary winding of the high voltage transformer. Put a new fuse . If the fuse is not blowing the problem may be in the secondary side of the high voltage transformer. Chek the highvoltage diode, capacitor, magnetron respectively. you can also check the primary winding of the low voltage transformer.

Owners manual for Kenmore Elite Microwave Model 66462


A full 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.
