Question about Kenmore 80809 Microwave Oven

Open Question

This is a Kenmore Elite over the range microwave, model #80802400. It's about five years old and a few days ago it stopped heating/cooking. I think the problem is the high-voltage capacitor but before I start blindly ordering parts I would like to get another opinion. First off, the microwave has power - the control panel/display works, the microwave circulating motor runs, the interior and cook top lights both work and the exhaust fan works. Anytime the microwave actually calls for heat and engages it immediately shuts down the unit. It doesn’t matter if you start with the instant 30 second button or set time with the dial and press start, the timer stops dead in its tracks and microwave stops running. If you choose a sensor cooking option the circulating motor will run until the microwave engages at which point it again shuts off immediately. All the other features still have power and still work properly. Should I be replacing the high-voltage capacitor, the transformer or the magnetron? Thanks for your help!

SOURCE: Microwave suddenly stopped working

Code F3 indicates an open / defective thermistor / temperature sensor. The first suspects when a microwave is not heating would be the door switches, bad connections on the magnetron terminal or bad connections on the control board. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

SOURCE: Microwave heats but slowly.

This is the second time I have requested assitance on this site with no response. The beginning of this thread dates back two months. Why would I ever want to pay for support when it is so poor at this level?

hi mike,

I’m sorry to tell you this but; I wouldn't recommend using a different transformer, even if it's the same size, it could cause serious damage. The HV transformer should only be replaced with the exact replacement part.

Was it just the exhaust fan that came on? If so this is normal when cooking on the stove for long period of time without the fan running. The heat builds up under the microwave and eventually activates the fan.

My GE spacemaker microwave doesn't heat up foods. There is a slight bit of heat generated but not much. All timers, lights, etc. work normal. It is a GE model jvm1440. It is about 3 years old. The problem...


IT COULD BE A NUMBER OF THINGS RANGING FROM DIODES TO CAPACITORS TO YOUR MAGNATRON OR THERMOSTAST OR TRANSFORMERS. IT'S DIFFICULT TO DIAGNOSE WITHOUT SEEING THIS MICROWAVE. YOU MAY BE BETTER OFF GETTING YOURSELF A DIFFERENT ONE.
