Hi,

The F9 fault code indicates an inverter failure. This is sometimes caused by a power surge or glitch through the electrical lines that can prevent the control boards inside the microwave from working properly. It can also be caused by a failed inverter, a bad electronic control board or an internal wiring failure.
Try unplugging the microwave for 5 minutes and then plug it back in. If the F9 returns, then the microwave will need to be serviced by a technician because the entire control system will need to be changed.

Kenmore microwave elite with a F-9 code.


Get rid of your microwave. Studies have shown that microwaves change the molecular structure of the food, causing abnormal qualities and cancer. The inventor of the microwave doesn't use one.

My Kenmore Elite Ultra Wave Technology microwave is displaying an F-9 error. What does that mean?


Here are a couple of quotes from another forum:

"Kenmore Elite 36 " over tne counter microwave is supplied by LG made by Gold Star, made in China. It's main problem is the high voltage inverter board supplyed by Sears Parts. If you get a F-9 code on your microwave display screen and the micro quits it's probably this board. Reset the machine by pulling the power plug and waiting an hour. If it is the high voltage board is at fault it will probably fail after 45 seconds of start up. This part is really hard to get at but is less than $100. A qualified technician should be able to remove and repair this item in less than hour. Some techs will quote you $300 labor, don't buy it, it should cost a $100 or less. No need to buy another microwave."

"F-9 on this microwave IS inverter related. There is a service tech troubleshooting document stuffed in behind the control board cover which has some testing proceedures. My problem was the magnatron and checked out bad with the help of this document. It would run for a few seconds making clicks and then say F-9. It has been working great since I replaced the magnatron PN 6324w1a002c."

Note that part numbers mentioned may not for your model.

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

BUT once you have the part number from the Sears parts site, you can often get the parts cheaper here

The Magnatron is a major job and unless you first looked into or had the Inverter Board replaced, you are wasting your time. 90% of the F-9 problems fall into the Inverter solution, Try that 1st, it worked for us!! My Micro now works GREAT!!
