Question about Kenmore 62622 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Inside light My unit has a problem with the inside light. It does not come on all of the time when the door is open or it is running. if I press on the key pad (not on a button, just on the pad) the light comes on. Repeated pressing turns the light on an off. The light is not that big a deal I mainly just want to make sure it safe.

Why does our new microwave not work? Can set the time and it counts down when we have pressed start but does nothing else.


There is a big fuse inside that thing. Check to see that it is not open. Could be that the magnetron, lite, and dish are all on the same circuit.

No key's work. Display and inside light is working


The Keypad is either faulty, or disconnected. Open the case, and remove the screws, holding the outer shell on. Inside, there should be a small board that covers the Keypad. Check to see if there is a ribbon cable, or some other type of connection going from the board to another part of the microwave. If all of the wires are connected, then you will probably need to replace the keypad.

Has stopped working. light gone off at same time. plug fuse has not broke. any ideas ?


There is a fuse inside the microwave also.It is a ceramic fuse,usually 15A.It has to be replaced with another ceramic fuse of the same rating.Bear in mind,the fuse blew for a reason,so if it is the interior fuse replace it after a search for a fault.

Microwave light comes on but no power


If the light works what does not work? Some of these have a safety switch embedded in the door opening (have to get at it from inside the unit) that will prevent unit from cooking and not allow the table inside to rotate.

Its there to prevent the unit from being used if door is open but it sometimes either fails or gets out of position.

I have to press up on the door to make it heat


Rich,

It sounds like there is an issue with the interlock latch or switch that allows the inverter to operate. Check the following:

The door hinges to be sure they aren't loose, misaligned or bent.

Check the latch on the door to be sure it engages the cam inside the main unit solidly and that there isn't any play in the door. Also check the door gasket to make sure it isn't preventing the door from closing properly. Since you said the unit was over the stove, things can become misaligned from the stovetop heat.

You may be able to able to fix this, but it may require partial disassmebly of the microwave. If you are unfamiliar with this type of service, it's best left to a trained service tech.

You should disconnect the power before attempting any repairs.

Khhc2090s trouble


The sensor errors are probably just from opening the door and interrupting the sensor cook cycle.

By the way, you should always press "Stop" before opening the door of a running microwave. Otherwise, the door switches will prematurely fail.

I would first check the door switches and their mounts. See this help file.

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

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

My microwave displays time etc, but does not turn on


That model number from the tag on your oven should be KCMS1555SS0, KCMS1555SS1, or KCMS1555SS2.

We would need more detailed information about what it's doing or not doing.

Does it respond to key presses?
Does the inside light come on when you open the door?
Can you enter the cooking time?
What happens when you press "Start"?
Does it run but not heat?
Does it count down but the inside light and fan do not come on?

Please post a new help request with the model number and detailed sympotms.

Door latch and Screen


This is because of the broken latch. There are switches inside the oven that are operated by the door latches to make sure you're not trying to use the oven with the door open. With the new door, your oven should be back to normal.

Does the microwave oven auto shut-off when you open the door while cook time is remaining?


Yes. The two hooks sticking out from the inside of your door go in and activate a series of switches. Once you press or pull to open the door, before the door even moves, one of the door switches will disengage and turn off the high voltage.
The fan and light may still be on, but the unit is no longer cooking.
