Question about Kenmore 63662 / 63664 / 63669 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Heat reduced to maybe 50%

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?

Thanks,
Greg

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

My sharp r-209hk suddenly stopped heating. the motor makes more noise and food won't heat


If there is no heat it is the Magnetron. The other 1 from the 9/10 is the HV (High Voltage) Diode that connects to the HV Capacitor.This is the cheaper fix of the two with them being usually under $12. The Magnetron is rather high ranging from approx. $50 and up.Have the blown parts replaced.Thanks

I have a GE Spacemaker XL1400. Everything works except it does not heat the contents. The noise is slightly different while running compared to when it worked. Any Ideas? the unit is about 11 years old but...


The magnetron tube which makes the microwaves has probably worn out. As it ages a kind of groaning noise is typical and that may be what you're hearing. There are other possibilities too, but as old as your oven is I'd put the tube as most likely.

You could take the oven to a shop for a diagnosis if you want to keep it, but parts can be costly and labor will probably be at least $50. This might be a good time to consider replacing the oven.

Noise while not running


don;t worry;
all you need to do is lubricate the fan bearings with light machine oil and make sure the fan is not hitting anything
