Re: F-9 Error after running a few seconds...
If this is a "SmartWave" branded microwave oven then F9 is an error that indicates an inverter board or magnetron has failed. Either way.. Try this...With the F9 error cleared, start the oven and listen for a ticking sound. The inverter will attempt to 'fire' the magnetron 5 times.(ticking sound). If can hear ticking, replace magnetron....Else in may be a door switch problem

Error code H97 is an indication of a possible failure of the Magnetron, DPC board or the High Voltage Inverter board. It could be just a loose wire connection also between the DPC board and the High Voltage Inverter board.
This failure will require a service technician to diagnose and repair.
All i kind find is it's a sensor error. turn it off or unplug for a few seconds then switch on again. if the fault is persistent it will need an engineer to look at it. is it under it's 12 month guarantee still?
this type of code normally mean Control Board Problem. You must call to the profesional repairmain. However you can do the following :
Enter the Service Test Mode as
1. Open door.
2. Press DELETE.
3. Press pads 1, 3, 5, 7.
4. Close door.
5. Press DELETE within 15 seconds (Pressing
RESET at any time will cancel the Service Test)
Unplug the microwave and plug it back in after 30 seconds to make sure the message did not appear because of a simple glitch. If it does not come up again, use the microwave as normal.
The "H98" error means that the microwave's inverter has shorted out and does not work any more. The microwave cannot transfer power to create heat, and the part has malfunctions and requires replacement. Use your microwave serial number and customer service to find the proper part for the microwave.
Your microwave comes with a warranty that will cover the inverter if the warranty is still valid. Call the number for the warranty department or bring the microwave, with receipt, back to the store you purchased it from. This will save you the hassle of replacing the par
The error code F-S or F-5 is the closest error message I have found in information for your convection microwave oven. The F5 error code indicates that the damper switch has a sensing error. Be sure that the blower outlet is not blocked or restricted. I would recommend calling for service on something like this.
The F3 error code is an indication of a stuck key panel. We do not
recommend that the customer remove the cover of their microwave oven.
Even with the microwave oven unplugged, there are some components that
hold a charge of 25.000 volts.
Note: General resolution for problem is based on information submitted with question. If problem persist, contact a service technician to Sears Repair Department 1-800-469-4663.
Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).
HI. This error code is in reference to a failed control board. It may be correctable by simply unplugging for a few minutes, and re-introducing power. If the code reappear after the hard reset, this will indicate that the control board is, indeed, damaged. It must be replaced, in this case.
Hi, F-9 error code indicates a defective control board, inverter or line voltage too high. f the microwave runs for about 7 seconds with a ticking sound..then
stops and shows "F-9", it is the magnetron that has failed. The fact
that the unit starts and runs with the TICKING SOUND means the control
board is sending signal to inverter board and the inverter board is
sending signal to magnetron. Magnetron is covered by full 5 year
warranty, inverter board is only 3 years.
