Question about Kenmore 80599 Microwave Oven

2 Answers

I have a Kenmore Microwave hood combo model number 72180592402. The cooktop light stopped working. I ordered the correct light (6912W3Q001A) from sears and installed them. The cooktop light still does not come on. Any suggestions?

We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

If your handy with a solder iron.

UnPLug your microwave, there is 120v on the PCB.

Remove the screw on the bottom corner near the keypad, Remove the grill on the top front, just open the door and pull out on it. you will see a screw holding the top of the keypad, Remove it and then push up on the keypad.
Then remove the connectors and the 3 screws holding the PCB in.

On the PCB behind the Keypad you will find a thin trace that has burned off, solder a 18 gauge wire to the wire harness connector on pin 7 (the Blue wire) and follow the trace to the relay solder point and solder the other end of your wire to it.
Any first year engineering student knows that the thin trace they designed will eventually burn off.
This was the problem with mine and its been working now for 10 months.

If the cooktop lights recently failed, it may need circuit board repair.

Or it may be a failed hood TCO.

The light went out an the turntable won't stop when I close the door...i tried to push clear, but it still turns. I couldn't find my model number on the below pull down, but my model is 721.8001...


721.80019401 (without spaces) is the correct model number.

If it was the cooktop lamp(s) that went out, I would suspect that it shorted, damaging the control circuit board.

We see and repair this problem on a regular basis with our $39.95 repair service.

Or you can order a new control circuit board (part number 6871W1S354A) for $75.80 from the Sears Parts Direct Web site.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

The range-top light blew and now replacement bulbs


My Whirlpool/Roper microwave/hood combo has the same problem. I replaced the bulb twice, checked the bulb and it works, but not in the microwave. I wrote to Whirlpool asking about the problem. Haven't heard from them yet.

Do the inside light and turntable come on when you try to cook?

Is it making any unusual noise or is it louder or quieter than normal?

Do you have the model number?
