Question about Kenmore Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

No Power We had a transformer blow up outside our home last night. Everything survived except the Kenmore MIcrowave #665.60629. There is power to the microwave now, but no lights or response. Could there be a fuse blown? If so, where would it be and how do we get at it? There are no lights on the control panel

My Oster microwave. Last night we had a pretty big storm, this mourning I tried to use my microwave, No power. I switch plug in outlet ...Nothing happens. How do I get the power back on ?


Depends on what blew, if ti is a power surge is will blow out the low voltage transformer on the main board before it will blow the fuse in the unit, so Probably will need new main board. Problem will be finding someone who carries parts for Oster Microwvaes.

Ge spacemaker microwave JVM1650 won't heat

Limited heat power


It sounds like the transformer is shorting out on you but is not completely shorted.It will be shorting out on the output side of the transformer.this will give you a lower output level,and will cause the microwaves to be weaker.(less turns of wire in the secondary of the transformer).The short will probably get worse.Simply replacing the transformer should cure the microwave.

Kenmore built in microwave displaying "D" and wont heat.


"d" may mean demo mode. The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power outlet for 10 minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

I would suspect you have a failed high voltage transformer or maybe magnetron.

Microwave won't heat.


Magnatron is suspect. Need to put a voltmeter and see if the input (primary) side to the high-voltage transformer (big heavy iron thing in there) is getting 120Vac. Don't touch the other (high voltage) side of this transformer. If the power is there, you are looking at replacing the magnatron. Its affordable if you do it yourself - buy the part on EBAY - lookup "universal magnatron"

GE Spacesaver Microwave not running


If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk It's most likely a bad high-voltage transformer or magnetron, but it's hard to say without being able to check it. If it will run without blowing the fuse, you may be able to do a test. This should only be performed by someone observing safety warnings mentioned at the link above. Put about 2 cups in a microwave-safe container inside the cavity. Run the oven for about 3 minutes, or until it blows the fuse. Then unplug the oven from the wall, and carefully feel the top of the high-voltage transformer and inside or near the finned area of the magnetron to see if either gets really hot. If one does, it's the likeliest suspect. When the high-voltage transformer fails, it often gets discolored and smokes, but not always. You can look for that, too. It's very important that the internal cooling fan is running, and that the air vents are not blocked opr plugged.

Microwave does not heat


What could cause this problem coud be a bad door switch, a bad HI Voltage capacitor, a bad power transformer, a bad Rectifier, a bad magnatron,or a bad circuit control board. Any one of these repairs could run from 65 to fix, all the way up to 200 bucks. You are probablt right, its time to buy a newer type with more lights, bells, and whistles. Good Luck
