Question about Kenmore 62702 Microwave Oven

Kenmore elite microwave

I have a Kenmore Elite Microwave model #80822. I was cooking on my stove this evening with the vent on the microwave on. When I tried to use the microwave, it would not work. None of the buttons worked. I unplugged the unit to try to reset it. It still will not work. What could be wrong and how can I fix it?

Re: Kenmore elite microwave

Does the digital display light up at all? Is it completely dead? Are you sure it has power? Have you tried another outlet? If the outlet is good and the unit is completely dead, the internal fuse may have blown. You can try to take the cover off (with the unit unplugged) and look for a blown fuse. Try replacing the fuse with an EXACT fuse of the same rating. Try plugging the unit back in again and see if the unit comes back on. If not, you may have a power supply issue or defective Magnetron.

Please let me know what you find and we'll go from there.

Good Luck,
- Jim

Why is the inside panel of my microwave rusting

There is a significant amount of steam given off during cooking. If your fan is not working or your vents are blocked, the moisture stays inside and hence; rust. You could repaint by doing a bit of sanding and using a tremclad rust paint.

Was it just the exhaust fan that came on? If so this is normal when cooking on the stove for long period of time without the fan running. The heat builds up under the microwave and eventually activates the fan.

Kenmore Elite Microwave oven 63792 doesn't heat - all lights, turntable, fan, etc. work just fine.

Most likely it would be a bad magnetron since the light, turntable, and vent fan are running.

Covers over cooking/night lights are melting

I have a microwave above my stove also but it has not done what yours is doing. I would try a lower watt bulb since it would not give off as much heat. You may need to replace the lens or else just take it out and get rid of the problem altogether. You would have a brighter light anywas even if you kept the same bulb. Most of those bulbs are florescent and do not put out much heat anyway and seldom cause heat problems, esp. giving off enough heat to melt something.
