Question about Kenmore 63662 / 63664 / 63669 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Kenmore built-in microwave 63662/... power just stopped

I just had a Sears repairman here to try to fix the microwave. It just stopped working and has no power. The repairman seemed puzzled and eliminated the obvious problems (fuse, connections, etc.). By process of elimination, he decided it must be the thermostat. He ordered a new one and will be back in about 1 1/2 weeks to install it. It will cost me a little over $200 to fix it. It is about 5 years old. Should I repair it or purchase a new microwave?

You can probably find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number here at the Sears parts site.

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.

The part will probably cost less than $25 if you get it yourself.

"The repairman seemed puzzled". LOL! Bet you couldn't wait to hand him your money!!

My micro wave reads that it is locked how do I unlock it. it is sears ultra wave


The "lock" function is nice if you have kids who like to push buttons. It disables the microwave oven to prevent it from running unnecessarily,
To disable the lock feature push the "STOP-CLEAR" button. Then press and hold the "START" button until 'locked' is no longer shown on the display panel.
To re-lock it, do the same thing until 'locked' appears on the display.
Have a nice day.

Microwave stopped heating


I had the same oven for one and a half years and had the same problem. Had the sears repairman come out and he said the magnetron burned out and needed replacing for $285. It was never under warranty with the warranty that came with oven. I couldn't believe it! We had an independent repairman look at it and he found a design flaw that causes the magnetron to blow. If you replace the matnetron (megnatron?) it will work for awhile, maybe, but then just need to be replaced again. It's cheaper to buy a new microwave. In fact, I got out our old microwave that's over 20 yrs. old and still works--just isn't as fast and as new ovens. Good luck!

Microwave has no power


First unplug the unit.

The problem may be caused by one of two problems. It may be a blown fuse. you can see a diagram at;
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=72180522500&productCategoryId=0123370&brandId=0582&modelName=MICROWAVE/HOOD-COMBO&diagramPageId=00006&componentDescription=INTERIOR%20PARTS%202&documentId=50027658&backToLink=Return%20to%20Sub%20Components%20list

click on "view full size"

There is also another item called a thermistor. This is as the name suggests a thermal resistor. This will be located across the air outlet for unit. If the unit overheats or catch fire it cuts the power also. You can get them at electronics parts stores like Radio Shack.

You can test these parts with an ohm meter to see if they are "open".

Need manual


You will need the free Acrobat Reader to view or print the online manual.

To download the owner's manual, just enter your full model number at the
Sears parts site.

On the resulting page, look to the right for the blue "View Manuals" button.

That Sears-related site has many free manuals. While the manuals they list there are all free, they will ask you to register.

Many times, the owner's manual will have the installation instructions inside.

If yours is not listed there for free, you would have to order it through the
Sears parts site.

Are you currently having a problem with the unit?

If so, please reply back with details.

If not...

Troubleshooting my Kenmore 721.66227


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

Otherwise, when you hit Start to cook, do the inside light and turntable come on?

Any unusual noises?

Is it louder or quieter than usual?

Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting Sears to get it fixed free.
