Question about Kenmore 62702 Microwave Oven

Burning smell , Microwave not turning off

I have a wallmount Microwave - Kenmore Model 665.61701100. It has under-hood range for exhaust. One day I decided to clean the fats deposited around microwave. I used fat cleaning spray that I had bought at Walmart. I also used warm water to clean the mess around microwave. While cleaning, Microwave turned on by itself and never shut off. I thought the only exhaust fan was turning on, but after ½ hr of unit being on, I realized, it was whole microwave on. turn-table was not turning anytime. And I started to get a strong burning smell (as if motor was burning). I did not notice any fumes only smell. I unplugged the microwave from wall switch to turn it off. Now any time I put the switch back, microwave turns on & I get same strong burning smell “immediately”- but no fumes. I left microwave alone for ~30 days to let moisture dry. And tried hooking the microwave again. I still get this strong burning smell. I am unable to unhook the Microwave from wall mounts & am afraid that I might spoil the wall mantles.

What is the problem with my microwave? How should I fix it myself?

The control circuit shorted out from the cleaning session and kept the microwave on so long with nothing to cook that it has cooked itself I'm sorry to tell you. Probably not worth repairing

SOURCE: Burning smell from Microwave

If you clean any appliances always plug out the unit power supply do spray any liquid in the unit that can enter inside the control, instead just wipe it with rug not spray. In this situation you have to call for a qualified technician. Maybe there are some wires that burned or rust in the control that cause the short circuit inside the unit..

I got a Kenmore microwave hood combination model number 721.80032 is it a hood fan to and how do i just turn on the hood fan


The model number 721.80032 is a partial model number; it indicates the build series. I found the Kenmore microwave, 721.80032700. The final 3 digits indicate the panel color and similar details.

Assuming the microwave was installed properly, it should work as a hood fan. Press the touch pad with the fan icon (underneath it says Hi/Low/Off) to get the desired fan speed. The icon is on the lower left of the control panel; it's below the Cook Time button and to the left of the Light button.

The manual for the 721.80032700 is available here: https://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/user-manuals/72180032700-kenmore-parts-manual?manualIndex=0 . The direct link to the Owner's Manual is https://c.searspartsdirect.com/mmh/pd_download/lis_pdf/OWNM/L0710653.pdf . See pages 9 and 14 for using the exhaust fan.

I hope this helps.

Kenmore model 721 - Cooked a meal for 30 minutes. Afterwards the microwave did not heat. However, the next day it worked. A few days later, was operated for 20 minutes, and again did not heat, and has not...


Yes, there is a thermostat device located on the magnetron. It will open up (turning off the magnetron) when it gets too hot, and it will reset automatically after it cools back down (in 5 to 15 minutes). The question is, Why is is over-heating? Usually it is caused by the exhaust fan being turned the wrong way. (For example, it may be set to exhaust the air out through the top of the microwave, but you don't have a vent there.) That fan can be turned to exhaust air out the top, out the back, or recirculate the air back through the front of microwave. It's easy to turn it around - the hard part is that you have to take the microwave down to be able to pull the fan out and rotate it the right direction.

Have Kenmore microvave and the vent starts on its own


Actually, that's a feature! If you cook much on the range (stove) beneath the microwave, the heat will cause the microwave bottom to heat up quite a bit (just touch it!), and the microwave will turn on it's exhaust fan in an attempt to save itself from burning up. It will shut off in about 15 minutes after you turn off the source of heat.
But if the fan comes on by itself even when the microwave is cool (or at least not hot), then you probably have a defective fan thermostat. This thermostat is located behind the control console on the inside bottom of the microwave.

Sears l kenmore microwave 665.60622000


Most Kenmore appliance manuals are available from Manage My Life. For the 665.60622000 microwave and range hood User's Guide, see http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/5728/KENMORE-Microwave-Hood-Combo-L0211211?brand_name_search=665.60622000 . This will load the PDF in the browser window if you have a PDF reader plugin. If you wish to download the manual, the direct link is http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/lis_pdf/OWNM/L0211211.pdf . You need Adobe Reader or a similar program to read the file. If you want only the Installation guide, start here: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/search?query=665.60622000 . Unfortunately, you will need to print your own copy from the PDF. (Alternatively, go to a print shop with the file on a flash drive and they will print the file for a fee.) Sears no longer has the manuals available for sale at Sears Parts Direct, http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/All-Products-Parts/Model-66560622000/0582/0123370/P0080166/00001?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= .

Is this oven still under warranty? If so, take advantage. If not, remove the power plug and the case. Short out, with a screwdriver, the large can-shaped capacitor with two terminals sticking out. Check the wiring and circuit board for signs of burning. If everything looks ok, remove the thin sheet metal wave guide that sits above or beside the microwave energy port into the cooking cavity. Under the sheet metal, there is a metal fan-like device called a 'stirrer' that has a plastic bearing. Remove this stirrer and smell the bearing. If it smells like the burning wire smell, replace the stirrer. You can buy it through 'Sears Parts' online.
