Question about Microwave Ovens

Kenmore microwave model 721.62644200

One of the under the bulbs burnt out, so I replaced the bulbs, something blew.. the microwave, turntable, clock, everything else works, but now the night light, or bulbs I replaced do not. It was a microwave manufactured in june of 2003. I would think, this microwave being newer.. I could fix this..

It is a kenmore microwave.. serial number 306KM01522, I checked on fuse..well the one I could find, it was fine. Seems that the wires that go from the lights, go into the circuit board for the microwave.

this is a kenmore microwave model 721.62644200, incase it disappears from the subject line

We see this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

My kenmore elite 721.66462500 has turntable that attempts to turn but it sparked and popped underneath and seems it won't turn. All else works-IS IT SAFE TO USE?? kenmore elite 721.66462500


When platter doesn't turn, food will not cook evenly. The motor must be replaced. No harm will come to the oven if you continue to use it.

If you replaced the motor and turntable still does not rotate, either the motor is not receiving power or the the drive that turns the tt is not working because of slippage, etc.

Why does my ge spacemaker jvm1740dd1cc no longer heats and the turntable does not work?


Bad door switch. Look for burnt terminals on one of the door switches. Replace the switch and cut off the burnt terminals and splice on new ones.

It sounds like the main transformer has failed. It would be cheaper to replace the whole microwave than repair this one. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Panasonic Microwave NN-S935BF turntable and light do not work. Microwave still works. Bulb and turntable motor okay. No power to light or turntable. Any ideas?


Your description seems to be confusing turntable and light do not work
Bulb and motor OK
No power to light or turntable

Which is it?

They could be separate incidents. The drive motor could be fused and the globe just blew its life away..

Sounds like you blew a device on the main board when you didn't unplug it first. The whole main timer board must be replaced to repair the unit. Pricey, sorry!!

I'm guessing that nothing is working...is that right? If so, first guess is the breaker or an internal fuse. Nearly all units have them. You don't say what fuse you checked. Unplug the unit, remove the bulb and see what is in the socket. Next, open the breaker and then turn it back on. This will reset it. Something caused this.

The turn table and fan are connected in series with the bulb,as you have mentioned that you have replaced bulb,so please check again for any loose contact on bulb holder or bulb continuity again.
