It is possible that the magnatron is bad but hard to say on a no heat problem without checking all components. A lot of model give 5-7 yr warranty on that part.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: GE Microwave oven vent fan not working

You are correct the fan motor is either stuck or needs replaced.

There is no way to do this without removing the entire microwave. In case your not familiar with how microwaves work, there is a capacitor that is very large inside and can hold a charge even after it is unplugged for up to 24 hours, please take action to prevent getting shocked.

Kenmore microwave 721 85032010 will turn on but won't heat or spin


Chances are that is just a defective top or bottom door switch or its mount.
See our help file on door switches here.
Also, that model number does not show up as a valid US Kenmore model.
Please check the tag in the cooking cavity or elsewhere n the oven and let us know if you need further help.

We have a kenmore ultra wave microwave and the fan has stopped working and now the microwave won't operate. Any suggestions?


see this causes and fix it .God bless you
Exhaust Fan Motor If the exhaust fan does not run the fan motor might be bad. Remove the fan motor from the microwave oven and see if the blades can be turned by hand. They should turn very freely, if they're stiff the fan motor will need to be replaced. The fan motor can also burn out. To test this use an Ohm meter. The motor should have continuity. If it does
Thermostat If the microwave exhaust fan is not working the thermostat might be defective. The thermostat senses the air temperature and turns on the fan as needed, if it's defective it won't turn on the fan. Watch our video on testing thermostats.

Main Control Board If the microwave exhaust fan is not working check the exhaust fan motor and wiring. If they are good the main control board might be defective.

Everthing seems to work fan,lites,timer. but when you push the on button the microwave dosen't come on


I hear you saying everything seems fine with your oven except there is no heat action, Is that correct?

In my experience, the trouble can be traced to a faulty micro switch in the door safety interlock system as the #1 trouble.

Please remove the cover - use care to not touch the silver can - find the micro switches on the side away from the hinge.

You can test these switches with a volt/ohm meter in contunity setting. Test each switch independently.

What frequently happens is these switches become burned from arcing due to the door being opened while the oven is operating. The purpose of these switches is to tell the oven the door is closed and it is OK to turn on the magnatron. If the switch is burned, (fails to make a contact) the oven thinks the door is open, door open, no heat ... Make sense?

Find replacement switches at a FixYa.com advertiser, a local appliance parts place or at www.repairclinic.com

This is not the only reason for a oven to not heat ... if this problem persists, please post a note here.

Kenmore microwave model number 72180019401 not heating food


check the door safety interlock switches inside. If you open the door while the oven is running, you have probably burned the little contacts inside the switch(s)

you must remove the cover to get to these switches.

Kenmore microwave model 665.61629100


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.

Door switch If the fuse isn't the problem, check the door hooks and the door-release button. When these are broken, the door switch doesn't activate, so the oven can't work.

When we close the door the motor keeps running.


This just started happening on my Kenmore microwave because the door latch broke off.

Dacor dcm24s.light, fan, and control panel work but turntable and heat do not


Most likely the bottom door switch. Dacor units are built by Sharp and that switch is a very common problem. You'd either need to check the switch with an ohm meter or remove the cover of the switch to see if it's burned inside.
