Question about Kenmore 61684 Microwave Oven
If it went dead almost
immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted
high-voltage capacitor. See here.
If it went dead several seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer. See here.
If it goes dead or blows the breaker (or GFI) when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount. See this file.
You can find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number (from the tag in or on the unit) at the Sears parts site.
BUT once you have the part number from the Sears site, you can often get the parts cheaper here.
There should also be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
