Question about Kenmore Microwave Ovens

Kenmore elite countertop microwave/convection oven

Our five-year-old Kenmore elite countertop microwave/convection oven (series 721-64282/3/9) has an opening on the right inside that was covered by a metalicized paper about 4''X6''. Today during normal use it caught on fire. We removed the paper, but we are not comfortable leaving it off because it will get stuffed with food spray and we think the metalicized paper might be keeping some of the microwaves from getting loose. HELP!

Time for a new cover plate or a new microwave. Depending on the age of the unit, the part may not be available anymore.

SOURCE: my microwave is sweating

No. This is usually a sign of poor venting or air flow. It's possible that the coling fan is not circulating the air properly due to a problem with it or maybe the air vents are blocked. Also, there needs to be a couple of inches around a countertop model on all sides - especially the back - to ensure air flow. Look for buildup on the back vent grille. You can listen for the fan to be running and feel the air flow while it's running. If it's weak or not there, it needs inspection / service. A lack of air flow can cause the magnetron to overheat and be damaged. If this is a built-in model also check your air filter, air duct work and outdoor vent flap. Write back if you still have trouble.

SOURCE: sharp R-1871 microwave/convection oven. Microwave will not work

This may be due to the microwave section not working. Check the high voltage diode if it is ok, replace the Magneton.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore Microwave Oven - Elite Series -

make sure you have the oven plugged into a designated outlet...what I mean by that is...the outlet your plugging your oven into must be wired right to the fuse box by itself...because the oven will take most of the power from that one fuse for itself...also make sure the fuse is rated for what the oven needs....on the back of the oven, it will tell you how much current it takes...(???Amps), if it says 12 amps for example...the fuse should be 15 amps...if its lower that 12...it will keep blowing....if all of what I said check out then your oven has developed a short circuit...most likely the high voltage diode or magnetron....have it serviced....

There is a GE/Kenmore recall: http://injurylaw.reganfirm.com/2007/12/articles/defective-products/cpsc-notice-ge-ge-profile-kenmore-microwave-ovens-recalled/. I don't know if your relative's models are involved. I suggest that you file an incident report with the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Microwave turns on when the door is open must un-plug to shut off


Is it actually heating or just making noise and acting like it's heating? (Put a cup of water inside and close the door.) IF it's actually heating, then you have a shorted relay on the main control board, and you will have to replace the board. IF it's just making noise like it's working, but it's not heating, then the problem is that one of the door switches is not working right (it's either stuck open or stuck closed).

Same thing happened to us. We just came back from Sears, where we bought another. Just for giggles, my wife suggested unplugging the old one and plugging it back in again. It works now. New one's going back to the store.
