SOURCE: my microwave is sweating

No. This is usually a sign of poor venting or air flow. It's possible that the coling fan is not circulating the air properly due to a problem with it or maybe the air vents are blocked. Also, there needs to be a couple of inches around a countertop model on all sides - especially the back - to ensure air flow. Look for buildup on the back vent grille. You can listen for the fan to be running and feel the air flow while it's running. If it's weak or not there, it needs inspection / service. A lack of air flow can cause the magnetron to overheat and be damaged. If this is a built-in model also check your air filter, air duct work and outdoor vent flap. Write back if you still have trouble.

SOURCE: kenmore elite microwave oven displays "Locked" and will not respond

My Kenmore Elite microwave (don't have the model number in front of me) also mysteriously locked its own keypad (we were sitting in an adjacent room, heard a strange beep, and got up to find the LED reading "Locked."). I pressed and held down the Stop/Clear button for ~10 seconds and it returned to normal.

SOURCE: Owners manual for Kenmore Elite Microwave Model 66462

A full Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########

You can just enter your full model number at the Sears parts site.

On the resulting page, look to the right for the blue "View manuals" button. Click there.

d:%5cele%5crepair%5cmicrowave%5ckenmore_sears%5cview_manuals_button.jpgd:%5cele%5crepair%5cmicrowave%5ckenmore_sears%5cview_manuals_button.jpgd:%5cele%5crepair%5cmicrowave%5ckenmore_sears%5cview_manuals_button.jpgcaab351.jpg

That Sears-related site has many free manuals. While the manuals they list there are all free, they will ask you to register.

Many times, the owner's manual will have the installation instructions inside.

If yours is not listed there for free, you would have to order it through the
Sears parts site.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Advantium 120, model # 363.63693301,

You probably just have a bad primary interlock (upper door switch) or its mount is loose or broken.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually 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 latches lock 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. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If the switch mount is broken, it's usually more economical and safer to add a dab or two of hot glue to the mount to secure the switch. Let it cool for about 30 minutes before using.

We have the service / repair manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

It will give you safety info, step by step help in disassembly, troubleshooting tips, and part numbers.

Most computers will open this document automatically, but you may need the free Adobe Reader.

For more on door switches & mounts, see:
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/doorsw.txt

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

If a switch is all you need, we offer a universal type for only $5 postpaid which you can order here.

But if you need any cosmetic parts,
enter your full model number at the Sears parts site.

KENMORE ELITE #86013 Microwave/Convection Oven:Manual says always use Metal Rack when convection cooking.How can you cook whole chicken or roast? If you put food on top of the rack it will rub against


Yeah, that's an interesting dilema. You need to lift the food off the tray to get proper air circulation, but I've seen those racks and I understand that you don't have enough room to put a full bird in there! Is that by design, or an oversight? I don't know! And what can you do about that? Maybe you can cut off an inch off the support legs of the metal rack....

Microwave sparked out now it does not work


You had something metal inside the microwave. Do you have a rack inside on a revolving tray? On my microwave, if the foot of the wire rack is not on the revolving tray, it will spark against the floor of the oven. Microwave will go around round pieces of metal - it will spark if it finds a flat surface. I dont think you did any damage to your machine but try to not do this again.

I hope this helps you.

GE JVM1190WY 003 Microwave Convection sparks


The problem that you are having is that the magnetron inside the microwave is shorting out to ground and it will find the shortest path to reach whatever has metal in it. Replacing the magnetron will solve your problem altogether and you need not do anything else different and continue using your metal racks.

Rack in microwave


You should not have any metals in the oven when the microwave is on. If you are just doing convection cooking, the metal rack should be in so that what you are cooking is raised up so the hot air can surround what you are cooking.
