Hello Carroll - Yes, any microwave is fixable but here is the issue I want you to consider. For 14 years that microwave has been bombarded with cooking fumes, humidity and grease. The fact that it has lasted this long is remarkable. Personally I would not put a penny into a 14 year old microwave. The new ones have more features and are much cheaper to operate. Go out and get a new one. You will be glad you did. Regards, Joe

If the microwave is above the stove, the heat sensors in the microwave
may turn on fans to cool it even though the microwave itself is not
running. It tries to save its life. It should turn off when the stove is not
heating it.

A number of days ago we put two plates of food in the microwave to reheat them. There was a snap, crackle, pop noise. We checked to see there was no metal object in the unit....there wasn't ...we know...


Are you sure the plates were Microwave oven safe? Some dishes have metal in the colors of the design. A snap, crackle, pop noise normally means there is metal present in the oven.

14 years old. Hit the start button this AM and it


Yep, get a new one. Your oven's magnetron tube, the microwave source, has gone bad. They often go with a bang. While the tube could be replaced, the repair will likely cost more than a new oven. At 14, it's done you well but it's time to move on.

Microwave is 21 years old. It is above the range


Um, no. You can get a new microwave that is much, much more efficient for a fraction of the repair cost.

Went to turn on the mic and heard a pop and now no power. think i blew a fuse. changed it and same thing all over again. any ideas???


I had the same thing to happen to our microwave oven. I went and replaced the fuse in it. Power came back on. Then I tried to pop some popcorn in it. 30 seconds after it started, it made a vibrating noise and shut off. It took the fuse but not the curcuit breaker. The microwave is 14 years old. I have just come to the conclusion that there is buildup all inside the motor parts and that it needs to be replaced. The instruction manuel mentions to replace the monitor switch when replacing the fuse. Since I lost the manuel a long time ago, I asked at Lowes and noone knew what that was....I since found out that it was a safety device installed on the microwave oven so that if the door was not shut completely or was out of alignment, it would throw the fuse. Anyway, I am happy with the service we got with this microwave. It has been through several slammed doors and lots of use. We have been very satisfied with our Frigidare Microwave. It has held up well.

Troubleshooting my Kenmore 721.66227


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

Otherwise, when you hit Start to cook, do the inside light and turntable come on?

Any unusual noises?

Is it louder or quieter than usual?

Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting Sears to get it fixed free.

Microwave stopped working completely


Fan turned on after cooking because a thermostat got to hot and tripped turning on the fan to try to cool the unit.  The unit went completely dead when thermal fuse tripped which is located above the cavity on the left side.
