If there is no action please do not switch on unless you have confirmed the fault. It is possible that the Magnetron is faulty, the temperature cut off is faulty or the main capacitor is short. It is also quite possible that insect can get into the oven and create soft spots. When you switch on these will create a short and make the voltage jump and in the long run damage the magnetron.
So Remove cover after disconnecting , check for dirt/moisture in the cabin, if so wipe clean and dry, check the magnetron and area clean and use an jet air to clean off.
Make sure that the program controller is working if not check power - step dwon suppy, the pads are responding- if not fauty pads- or the door switches ,if contact is not through the microwave willnot work.

Now keeping clear of the microwave, switch on , use a cup of water inside to test.
If you notice any sparks shut off as the magnetron or the main HT capacitor can be faulty. replace with same type.
If there is heating without any issues , you can use the microwave safely

My Salton turns on, rotates but doesn't warm the food - I think I screwed up in the programming?


No you didn't. Probably the magnetron since the oven is pretending to work.

Microwave turns on but wont cook food


It is most likely the magnetron, but! there are two more items that will do the same, a cracked high voltage diode and a shorted high voltage capacitor.

Clear the cook cycle when you remove the food. Some microwaves pick up where they left off, so you don't have to keep pressing buttons.

It don't heat anything any more. power is on turns counts food doesn't even get warm. i bought this unit from wal-mart in Joplin Missouri. 4/18/08 Wal-mart will not help me because it out of there 90 day...


one would surely assume that a product would last more than 5 months. of course you know not to put metal in a microwave, so the real question is, have you ever cooked bacon in it? I can assure you that this is a very bad idea, as the grease gets sucked up into the fan and distributed all over the sensitive circuitry inside the unit. mine actually caught on fire while cooking bacon, so now we are back to the skillet. in conclusion, the micron is probaly fried in it and it is not worth fixing. chunk it and get a new one.

Kenmore 721.80524500 makes a buzzing, grinding noise


Your problem is due to the "magnetron" arcing to the wave guide within the microwave. Picture someone arc-welding stuff together inside the microwave casing, that's essentially what's happening. It is a fire hazard and you should stop using the microwave immediately. As far as I know, there isn't a recall on that particular model (though there was on another similar Kenmore/Whirlpool model) so if it's out of warranty, you're out of luck.

How can i return a microwave


Did you charge it or write a check? You can get a date of purchase that way. I would check the back of the microwave for the serial/model number and a telephone number or website to contact about the defective product. You can also try the manager of the store where you bought it and see what they can do for you. Hope this helps!

Cleaning a microwave before using


It's probably normal, but you might visit your dealer and check another one and even another model or brand to see if they have the same odor.
