Question about Kenmore 63792 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Fan coming on for no apparent reason

This evening, the fan on our microwave (full model number 665.63792304) just started, for no apparent reason. Using the button to turn it off manually worked, for about 30 seconds, then it turned back on again. When we turned it on manually and let it run for two minutes, then turned it off again, it seems to have stayed off. (It's been off for 10 minutes now.)

Any thoughts?

The pushbutton panel is most likely failing, part cost around $60.00 if you want to replace yourself. (It's not that difficult). I'm not sure why, but this type of pushbutton panel (referred to as membrane switches) have been experiencing a high failure rate over the past couple of years. Symptoms include buttons not working at all, intermittent beeping sounds, turning on by themselves etc.

If you need further assistance, let me know

Cooling fan turns on very frequently


<-- I could have given you some specific detailed repair information if you had included the full model number as shown on the tag on the oven (not from the manual).

And if FixYa would inform us experts when as persons responds to a request for more information, we could reply back quickly.

But since (for some reason) they won't, you'll just have to post a new help request.

But please be sure to include the full model number from the tag on the oven, and exact symptoms - what it's doing or not doing, and when.

And what is your full model number from the tag on / in the unit?

These answers will help me judge whether it's in the high voltage section (magnetron, transformer, or diode) or the control section (door switch or control board relay or connection).

Please post a new help request with your brand and full model number from the tag and the answers to these questions so we can help you properly.

Sharp Microwave Oven over stove fan goes on by itself


Please note that FixYa is not currently notifying us Experts when Clarification Requests are answered.

So please post a
NEW question, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit, as well as the answers to these questions:

Which fan is it?

The
internal cooling fan, which comes on automatically whenever the unit is microwaving?

Or the hood vent exhaust fan which you can turn on and off manually?

Or the convection fan, if it is a convection model?

When is it coming on?

Is it coming on whenever you cook on the stove top?

Thanks!

Fan motor starts and stops intermittently


I would wonder if it's the internal cooling which comes on automatically whenever you microwave or the hood vent exhaust fan, which you can turn on and off manually.

It is vital that the cooling fan runs, or the turntable and stirrer won't work, and magnetron will soon be destroyed.

FixYa's Web site is currently not notifying us when replies to our Clarification Requests are posted, so please reply back directly with your full number from the tag on the unit so I can help you with free do-it-yourself tips or an estimate.

Daewoo over the range microwave model KOT-21OUB just stopped working for no apparent reason. Lights and fans still work. Not heating food. Worked for one dish then the next nothing.


how old is the machine, microwave ovens have a tendancy to do the ridiculous for no possible reason. a check of the main power fuse within the unit might help. it is a large fuse 10A> that supplies the transformers

GE JVM1870 Spacemaker Microwave Fan Malfunctioning when Cooking


There are two different fans in this model, as with almost all over the range microwaves.

One is the hood vent exhaust fan, which you can turn on and off at will, and which should always be on when cooking on the stove top.

This fan does not automatically come on when you cook with the microwave.

The fan which should always be on (automatically) when you are microwaving is the internal magnetron cooling fan.

If the cooling fan fails, the magnetron can overheat and the thermal cutout (TCO) / thermostat will open, killing the power to the oven. Ideally, this protects the magnetron from being destroyed.

If the thermal device is a thermostat, it will reset when it cools down, and the oven will work.

If the thermal device is a true thermal fuse, it is a one-time device and if it blows, it will have to be replaced.

If your cooling fan is bad, it needs to be replaced before using the microwave.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
