Question about Kenmore 62622 Microwave Oven
When i turn on my micro wave it works after 7 seconds it stops and an error code of F-9 comes on the panel what does this mean. my email is firstname.lastname@example.org thanks
F9 code can mean something different depending upon the particular model.....
1.) IF your Microwave uses "UltraWave technology"/"SmartWave technology"...Then either the Magnetron has failed or the Inverter board has failed OR maybe the control board has failed (HUH?).
2.) IF your Microwave does NOT use "UltraWave technology"/"SmartWave technology" then one or more of the door switches has failed.
** "UltraWave technology"/"SmartWave technology" **
I'll explain a few things about this wonderful technology...
The control board (accepts the pushbutton commands) has to talk to the inverter board to tell it how much power should be applied to the magnetron. The inverter board will then power the magnetron and inform the control board if the magnetron is working OK.
If there is something wrong with the magnetron or inverter board or a there is a communication breakdown between the control board and the inverter board...WA-LA-----F9----
A pretty reliable test for the Magnetron is to operate the oven and listen for a ticking sound 5-6 times about a second apart. If you can hear the ticking....The magnetron has failed..if no ticking, the control or inverter board failed.
Note: This 'technology' may come in other flavors as well

Hello again, Here is my Solution update on my Ultra Elite F-9 problem. After another cancellation on Sears part, they finally showed up! The man came in and replaced my Inverter Board. He had to take down the Microhood from the wall and place it on the floor. First he grabbed my scatter rug that my DOG sleeps on and was going to put my NEW VERY CLEAN MICRO on it! YUK!! I jumped and said........oh my!! Let me get a towel to put down on the rug to protect it better. (very suttle) It took him a little while to dismantle everything and remove the Inverter Board and replace it with the new one. Everything was put together and I helped him put it back up. To make a long story short....I have not had a problem since and it has been approx. a month now. YEAH!!!!!! He did say if it accures again, it probably is the other Item that is bad. So far so good!! I am thrilled that it works great. So I will suggest to everyone who has the F-9 problem....have the Inverter Board replaced! It is after all Warranteed. Best of Luck to you all......and great info site......Thanks, Debra

My Ultra Wave Kenmore Elite microwave has all of the symptoms you list above (reg501). Is it worth the repair or should I invest in a new one? Microwave is not under warranty.
