Actually, that's not a full Kenmore model number.

If you'll check the tag on the unit, it should be 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########.

But the 665 prefix means it's made for Whirlpool for Kenmore and so F2 would mean a shorting membrane keypad.

In some models, the membrane keypad is available separately. This is a bit of a job.

In others, it is not, but the frame can be replaced, and it comes with a new keypad, and is a pretty easy do it yourself job.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please include your full model number from the tag in or on the unit) for a free estimate and free tips & do-it-yourself advice.

F6 appears to be a relay failure on the main board, but it may be a door switch or door switch mount.

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.

Door 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.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door hooks latch when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. Other times, it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

I have a Kenmore Elite Speedcook Microwave oven, model #665.63783600. What does error code F7 mean on this model?


F7 Error Code On Microwave Ovens With Inverter Board

An F7 error code could be an inverter board failure. Anything else that prevents microwave energy may also cause an F7 error, and must be checked. The technician should perform the following procedure to test for an F7 error code:

1. Check the magnetron.
2. Check the magnetron TCO (it should be closed).
3. Check the 3 interlock switches.
4. Check the harness wiring.
5. Check the electronic controls.
6. Check the inverter board.

For more free help, feel free to contact me via my site with your detailed symptoms and full model number and FCC ID number as shown on the tag in or on the oven.

What does F44 error code on Kenmore Elite model 790.4890 mean?


You may be missing a digit in the model number. I believe that this microwave was built by Electrolux for the Kenmore line. The F44 error indicates that the external cooling fan for the microwave is spinning too fast. This can be caused by a blockage. Check if there is anything blocking the airflow. Make sure that the voltage coming into the microwave is correct. If your voltage is too high, then the fan will spin faster.

The fan is part 108 on this diagram: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/model-part/79048903000/0583/0125400/r1009032/00003.html . It's at the back of the deflector at the top of the microwave. This is the diagram for the 790.48903000 .

If there is nothing wrong with the fan (spinning normally), then the problem is between the fan speed sensor and the control board. This should be fixed by a professional.

I hope this helps.

Twice my new kenmore microwave has just started beeping with the error code E11 appearing on the screen.Have to unplug it to stop it. WHat is going on?


I think this microwave oven uses an inverter to control the power output of the magnetron. Usually the microwave will advertise this feature with a trade name like "accu-wave" or "true-power" or some similar label on the front of the microwave. Assuming that is the case here, then the E11 error means a bad inverter

<- If you had listed your error code, I would probably have been able to tell you what it means.

But of course, I'd also want the full model number from the tag on the unit.

With the full model number, we could have looked up what an F9 code means on that model.

Usually it's a failure in the inverter circuit.

Kenmore microwave model 63792 displays F2 error message


The F2 error code on your microwave oven is a membrane failure.
It is recommended that you replace the membrane first & if you still have problems to replace the control board.

Humming sound, F9 and dead


Seems like I answered this, but maybe it's a different poster.

The 721 model code means it's an LG/Goldstar-made oven and F9 indicates a problem with the inverter or magnetron.

Due to the lethal voltages involved, I do not recommend that a person without training and experience ever work on these models.

I would suggest you contact Sears for service.
