Question about Kenmore 63662 / 63664 / 63669 Microwave Oven
Bought in 2004. Has recently started running at about 50% heat. Was making a slight squeeking noise but once that stopped it reduced the heat. May be a coincidence... Any thoughts?
The stirrer may have been causing the squeaking noise, and the low heat is most likely the magnetron.
Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:
- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part
