Question about Kenmore 62642 / 62644 / 62649 Microwave Oven

Kenmore 1000w Not Heating Food Items

We have a Kenmore 1000W Serial Number 508TA02824, over the stove mounted Microwave. We bought it new in 2006. Manufactured in Aug. 2005. Everything works excellent accept last week it no longer cooks anything we place into it. Since all appears to be working and it has power, does it have a fuse for the "heating element"? Where would it be located? Thank you!

If it sounds like it is running and it lights up it is not the fuse. In my 24 years of service work I've found that the problem you are describing is cause by the failure of the magnitron ( The device that emits the microwave radiation). As your unit is a built in expensive unit I would look into replacing the magnitron. In cheap microwaves I just suggest replacement. If you need further assistance locating a replacement magnitron feel free to cotact me. It is a relatively easy part to replace. You just open the case and unplug it, unscrew it from the unit, and replace it with the new one. In most cases all you need is a philips head screwdriver and some patience. Anyway, I hope this helps you out in your decicion.

Microwave will no longer heat. Model #MA-1000W


So we can help you, please post a NEW question, and please include your model number MA-1000Was well as the answers to these questions:

When you try to microwave are the inside light, internal cooling fan and turntable all working?

Is there any unusual noise or is it louder or quieter than normal?

A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.

We have a sound clip of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are working.

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

Amps for microwave


That should be stated on the model number tag.

If not, a typical 1000W microwave will draw 13-15 amps from a 110/120V line.

Model MW8104SS draws right at 13 amps, according to the owner's manual.

While that model is not available, you can download similar models' manuals here: http://www.emersonradio.com/owners/MWO%20manual/
