Question about Kenmore 62622 Microwave Oven
When I put food in the microwave, it seems to be working but is only heating to lukewarm
Well were do I start, the spark check to see if it is arking on the side panel inside, there should be a plastic cover and around it if it is black then the arking is there (this can be fix with touch up paint), meanwhile, the no heat would be cause by the bad magnetron, cap or power supply if it has one.
To see were you or going you will need to understand this is not safe, dangerous to tamper with unit,
Open the cover, at the big transformer, there will be a primery and secondary.
At the primery were two wires goes to the front were all the other wires or check to see if the voltage is present 120vac pulsing on and off when turning on the microwave, do not measure the secondery the voltage will be very high about 2k
If the voltage is present hit the big silver steal cassing at the top with a insulated tool, knowed as the magnetron to see if it will start , you will hear a mmmmm don't touch it, see if heat start inside, never leave the unit emty, put a cup of water. If it doesn't heat but the voltage is present replace the magnetron, it may also be the cap next to it,
If it has a power board after the transformer, then this would also be the problem, but I don't think you have one.
I hope this help
