First you need to determine when that happens if it's actually heating, or if it's just the fan and turntable coming on. (I suspect the latter).

You can test it by putting in a cup of cold water and letting it run (with yourself standing to the side of the microwave) for about 30 seconds.

Then unplug the microwave and check the water for warmth.

If it IS heating, then you probably have a control board issue and we can help you here.

If it is NOT heating, as I suspect, then I think it is a door switch or switch mount issue.

Kenmore microwave model 401.85053010 just stopped working because door will not shut and lock. Does the main board have a safety interlock tie-in for the door?


Most Microwaves have anywhere between 3 and 5 switches to monitor if the door is open or closed. They have to act in proper sequence too. It is a safery feature so you can not run it with the door open.

The door latch is a safety interlock that prevents your microwave oven from doing what it is doing. The latch has failed and has to be replaced.

Kenmore microwave model 721 loose door


Loose bottom hinge - slide the microwave to the edge of the counter, and look at the bottom hinge - you may have to remove something to see clearly. Its likely you are missing a screw or the screws have worked themselves loose.

I'd check to make sure you don't have a door switch that isn't functioning properly. Also, might be a control panel or control panel interface issue.

WERE IS MODEL NUMBER ON KEMNORE RANGE?


The model numbers on most Kenmore ranges will be located on a nameplate along the oven door, or lower drawer opening. Some models may have this information on the back of the operator console.

If this question is in reference to a microwave oven, the model number will be located along the oven door opening, or inside the oven cavity along the upper portion on either the left or right hand side.

If you need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Kenmore microwave 80404400 no power


This is typical of the 20 amp fuse blown. It can blow due to slamming the door or even opening the door to quickly while it is running. It could also blow if there is a failure of one of the door interlock switches. This fuse is ceramic and looks similar to a cylinder automotive fuse and is located behind the control panel on this model.

We need to change the door on our microwave. We have the new door, but can't find anything in the manual about removing the old door. It is a Frigidaire Gallery series above range microwave. Any...


The door should come off fairly easily. All you have to do on MOST microwave ovens is open the door all the way and lift straight up at the hinges. The door will come off the hinge pins.

On some models, there may be a small hinge pin on the top hinge that you remove, then lift up.

You may have to remove the grill panel above the door (if equipped) to allow for clearance for the door to come off.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this helpful.
