Question about Microwave Ovens
My Kenmore microwave will do everything but the magnetron will not turn on! I can enter a time and hit start... the light will turn on, time count down, and bell ring, but the fan and magnetron will not start up.
I have a Kenmore microwave Model number 721-65223. Everything works except the heat. I tried unplugging it and restarting and setting it. I also tried waiting several hours and trying it again. the light goes on, the turn table turns, the timer works great but there is no heat.
This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.
Switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, which we repair these nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.
