My Kenmore 1100 Watt microwave (565.69581890) oven's power cut off in the middle of reheating food. There is no power to the appliance at all. Is there a reset button or anything I can try at home to solve the problem? Thank you, Janet

SOURCE: No Power on my Frigidaire microwave model CPLMB209DDC 1100 watt

Remove the case ... look on the base of the machine near the big silver thing (Capacitor - DON'T TOUCH IT !!!) You should find the main fuse near where the cord enters the case.

Usually when a microwave regardless of brand quits mid cycle the main fuse has failed. It is easily located as it will be the very first connection point off of the end of the power cord. Remove all of the chassis screws usually 4 on the sides and 6 on the back of the unit. Then begin lifting the chassis up at about a 15 deg angle and pull to the rear, Once the chassis is removed be very careful no to touch the large capacitor as it will still have a considerable charge. Locate the power fuse by following the power cord to the white and black terminals and remove the fuse. Purchase an exact replacement fuse and replace it. Reinstall the chassis cover without the screws and test the function of the unit by heating a cup of water until it boils. If it passes this simple test it should be fine. If it works momentarily and then quits the power diode has probably failed. The power diode is a 2.5 inch long and 0.5 inch wide and black located either on the bottom of the chassis or the inside back panel. This can be tested with an ohm meter by testing resistance. Set the meter to any ohm setting and place the test leads one on each terminal. The power diode should only read in one direction. If it reads in both directions (reverse the position of the test leads on the terminals) then the power diode has failed and will need to be replaced.

SOURCE: Does not heat up food.

90% of the time it is a magnetron fault

If your handy with getting the cover off and looking inside... check the obvious.
I suspect :
fuse
thermister
relay
If both microwave and Heating elements dont work, then I will assume the magnetron is ok, ans we are dealing with a high voltage issue... and you will need at best... a volt meter and or neon troublelight...
moust appliances have a simple schematic inside... I would start with the heating element first... trace wiring back to circuit board... usually one side of the heating element is connected to the white wire (neutral) and live (Hot) side is controlled thru the circuit board... so finding the neutral should be easy... then trace with neon light or voltmeter...

I know easy for me to say... but with everything else working... it doesnt seem to be the microprocessor that controlls the unit...

FGMV205K cover removal


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you want to know how to remove the cover on your Frigidaire microwave, model# FGMV205K. There are two different covers that you are able to remove for access to two different light bulbs.

If you are trying to change the Microwave Oven Light for inside your microwave:

    1)To replace light bulb, first disconnect power to your microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging it.

    2)Remove the louver by removing the three Hood Louver Screws.

    3)Push in the upper tabs and pull the louver away from your appliance.

    4)Remove the light bulb and replace with a new 20 watt light bulb. DO NOT USE BULB LARGER THAN 20 WATTS.

    5)Close the Oven Light Cover by carefully pushing into place. Push the louver back into place (engaging both the bottom and top tabs) and change to hood Louver Screws.


    If you are trying to change the light bulbs underneath your Microwave:

      1)To replace light bulbs, first disconnect power to your microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging it.

      2)To open Light Cover, remove the screw on the light cover.

      3)Replace the light bulbs with new 20 watt light bulbs. DO NOT USE BULBS LARGER THAN 20 WATTS.

      4)Close the Light Cover and secure with screw removed at step 2.

      If further troubleshooting is needed, I ask that you please let me know the error codes displayed on your appliance. Hope this is helpful.

      -Best Regards-

Microwave oven no longer reheat food


If it has been over a 18 months, go get a new one. If not, do not take any leakage risks. If you do, wear a helmet or call 1-800-got-junk.

There is steam inside the microwave when my food is heating up. Is this dangerous?


If the steam is not leaking out of the microwave it is no problem. Steam is normal when you heat moist items. If it is leaking out you need to replace the door seal, but steam will not start a fire.

I just bought an 1100 watt microwave oven from K-mart and when I opened th box there was no manual in the box. The microwave number is 66222. how can I get a manual


Many Kenmore appliance manuals are available from Manage My Life. com . The Kenmore 66222 manual is here: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/23454/KENMORE-Countertop-Microwave-L0520944?brand_name_search=Kenmore+66222 . A printed copy is available from Sears Parts Direct: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/23454/KENMORE-Countertop-Microwave-L0520944?brand_name_search=Kenmore+66222 . Scroll down for the manual; it's the fourth from the bottom.

Unless the microwave was labeled as a refurbished or open box unit, I'd contact K-mart customer service and see if they'll send you a replacement manual before you order one.

I hope this helps.

No power to unit. Internal fuse ok. Power ok to plug


It sounds like you have a short in the keypad controller system, there is a microprocessor board mounted behind the the keypad that control vital areas of the microwave's operation. I suggest appliance technician to check out the systems hardware and the rest of the oven.

Error message SE


Hello :

Many models of the GE microwave have sensors that can detect humidity from the foods you are cooking. This allows the microwave to make adjustments to the power levels used to cook your food. If "Sensor Error" appears, you should either press "Clear" to cancel the mode or leave the food in the appliance longer to give the microwave more time to detect the food.

Press "Time Cook" to manually enter the time if you receive an error message when trying to use the "Sensor Reheat" mode of your GE microwave. The error message may be caused by the food item being too large or too small to detect .


I hope this will help you .

Does not heat food but appliance cabinet gets very warm, some warpage of appliance liner.


One solution could be that the vents of the microwave need cleaning out.You can do this by just pulling out the blockage.
Then see if it will heat food.
