Question about Kenmore Microwave Ovens
If the microwave is not heating and isn't caused by it being in a strange mode then this usually means that either the magnatron or the power transistors have failed. Either of these are repairable but the repairs are not that cheap. So the repairs can cost more than a new microwave. The power transistors are worth about $5 and then you might get charged say $75 for labour. So the question then is if it is cheaper to fix it or replace it with a new one. If you have a higher end one that is worth more then it can be worth fixing. If it is a lower cost unit then just replace it. Get an repair estimate first and know what a suitable replacement costs and use that as your guide for what to do.
You can find appliance repair shops either from stores or contact Kenmore(Sears) to see if they have a repair depot near you.
