Hi.

That is probably a blown control board or a blown wiring harness. The oven must be taken apart, testing impedance on power cord and wiring harness, and finally replacing the control assembly if the cord is not faulty.

The wiring is tested with power off. The disassembled microwave cannot be turned on to read volts without disconnecting the magnetron first.

For this reason the testing is done reading Ohms rather than volts at control assembly connector.

Testing must be done by a technician. The oven must be tested for energy leakage after the repair.


Here a diagram:

If you need to locate a technician, or check warranty status, or get a quote on repair, please call the phone number listed on the owners manual.

Best regards.

Auto Cook not working


If autocook is not working and everything else it, there is an issue with the sensor in the oven that detects the steam, The emission of steam is what triggers that unit to shut off. If it wont cook on any settings then the issue is with the microwave generator not putting out enough power. This could be from a lot of things.

I have a kenmore microwave/convection oven model 721.64289300. The microwave stopped heating up but the convection works fine. Is this repairable.


I would suspect you have a failed cook relay on the control circuit board, but that can be economically repaired.

Details are here, along with a disassembly video.

Electroluc convection microwave stopped working while cooking


Hi - From what you have described it sounds like the microwave possibly has a wiring failure or faulty control panel or magnetron. I would suggest contacting a professional that accurately diagnose and repair the unit

Small amount of white smoke coming out of kenmore convection microwave in oven mode


That is usually caused by a build up of fat from microwave cooking on the heating element. It will clear under normal conditions and return if one cooks foods like bacon etc, un covered to prevent splashing of the food that is being cooked.
Hope that helps.

Built-in Sharp Carousel II Microwave Convection Oven died.


There are a couple of safety thermostats in the oven to shut down power if something overheats. One is on the magnetron tube (the microwave source), the other is on the cooking cavity. These sometimes go bad. There's also a power line fuse that may have failed, or become loose in its mounting clips. These can be tested with an ohmmeter; they should all measure very close to zero ohms if they're good.

Another possibility is that the control circuit board in the oven may have failed. I have worked on several Sharp ovens where the power transformer for the board has gone bad for no good reason. If the board goes bad the oven may appear to be dead as well.

Microwave servicing is best left to professionals. If you're thinking of keeping this one, take it to a service shop (or call for home service) and get an estimate. Then decide whether to repair or replace.

Hope this has helped a little. Thanks for using Fixya!

No, the magnetron gets its power from the inverter assembly. The actual issue here is a defective or damaged inverter. Replacing the inverter assembly will correct this issue.

Kenmore microwave


If you jump power from the two ends of the fuse with a wire, does it work at all? Also, it may be that the control panel is just out, at least the display panel. If you open the door will the interior light turn on?

Rack in microwave


You should not have any metals in the oven when the microwave is on. If you are just doing convection cooking, the metal rack should be in so that what you are cooking is raised up so the hot air can surround what you are cooking.
