    Thanks. Just after I sent the message, we found the service manual in our microwave and saw exactly the same information you provided. We priced parts and the control board is pretty expensive if we need it. Looking at other microwaves. I appreciate your help and quick reply!

Magnetron fan runs all the time


The timer that runs the mag is stuck. Unplug fan for 30 seconds and check it out. If not fixed, then look at replacing if microwave is older 7-8 years old.

The teamperature on the digital display can say 350 degrees and the oven thermatore that is located in the oven reads 310. Does this oven need to be calibrated? The oven is 6 years old.


The thermometer that hang on rack are Whooly inaccurate. A good one is the TAYLOR brand. As long as things bake within recipe time no adjustment needed but to do it;
  1. Press BAKE

  2. Select the maximum temp. depending on model it either 500 or 550

  3. Quickly (within 5-seconds of setting 550) press and hold the BAKE button approximately 5-15 seconds until "00" or the previously entered temperature adjustment is displayed.

    Pressing longer could cause an F0, F1 or F7 error to be displayed.

  4. Press the UP/DOWN arrow button to change the oven temperature in 5° increments to a maximum of +/- 35°

  5. Press the CLEAR or OFF button to return to normal operation.
But before doing that i suggest a new high quality thermometer that you hang on oven rack

Getting error code F7


Microwave will not operate (cook). F7 error code appears on the display. Electrical circuit interruption between L1 and Neutral in the microwave inverter circuit.

Possible reasons:
1. Check door, hinge and cavity front alignment and adjust as needed.
2. Check the operation of all interlock switches.
3. Check over temperature protector for the magnatron.
4. Check all Cavity Thermostats for closed circuit.
5. Unplug the oven for at least 40 seconds. If this solves the problem
A. Check the Cooling Fan for proper operation or blockage
B. Check the resistance of the magnetron thermostat. It should be 0 Ohms, replace if necessary.
6. Check that the control cable to the 1100 watt inverter is properly connected to plug P2 on the display PCB & Adjust or Reconnect
7. If interlock switches operate correctly, replace 1100W inverter.
8. If problem persists, replace control assembly.

Hope this helps.

Error code f7 on Kenmore wall oven 911.41165791


Try this first!
The control panel has a flat ribbon cable that plugs into the relay module. The ribbon is actually two ribbons pressed together. The plastic insulation has a defect, and the leads between the two ribbons cross. You can seperate them easily by lifting them apart. Place a piece of paper between them to act as an insulator. This should solve your problem. If that does not work, repalce the defective parts yourself. You can do it for about 30% of what a repair company would charge. it's either got to be 1. Control panel 2. Relay panel. Good luck!!!
