Question about Kenmore 64663 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

My Kenmore 64663 still heats but I don'y hear the fan anymore while heating

I think my fan stopped working while heating. Its a lot quieter now and when you open the door you get steam or smoke coming out from heating things up. Everything seems to work as normal and no codes but the fan while heating food has died.

If it's the internal cooling fan, you really need to get that repaired before you cook anymore with it. Otherwise, your magnetron will be destroyed.

If it's the hood / exhaust fan, then the problem may be the motor or a problem on the control board.If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

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

A full Sears/Kenmore model number usually has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########

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.

If you don't feel confident to tackle it yourself, I would contact Sears for service.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Microwave has power will not start


When you say it just hums, do you mean that it sounds like it is running but isn't heating? Or do you mean that the sound is different from when it normally runs? Is it quieter or noisier than normal? Do you hear the fan running or is that sound missing?
IF it sounds normal (or about the same as when it worked), but it's nust not heating, then it is probably a bad magnetron tube.

My still fairly new kenmore 1000 watt microwave appears to be operating fine but doesnt heat. What might be the problem?


When you hit "Start" to microwave, do the inside light, cooling fan, and turntable all come on?

Any unusual noises? Is it louder or quieter than usual?

We have a sound clip of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are operating here.

Post a new help request with the answers to these questions as well as the full model number from the tag on or in the unit.

Will work, but, does not heat up anything


When you press the "Start" pad to begin cooking, do the inside light, cooling fan, and turntable ALL come on?

If not, which do and don't?

Is the oven louder or quieter than usual?

I have a Kenmore Microwave Oven.The turn table stopped rotating and the unit does not heat. It sounds like it is working but it does not heat. Does the turntable have something to do with this?


What you probably hear is the fan. If it's not heating the problem is almost certainly the magnetron. The magnetron is the main component in every microwave and can be very expensive tp replace. You'll be better off buying a new microwave. The prices on new ones have dropped dramatically, I saw a 700 watt unit selling for $50.00.

MICROWAVE NOT HEATING


Most likely you have a magnetron problem. Easy to replace (DYI) but make sure the high voltage capacitor is fully discharged first against the case.

Noise while not running


don;t worry;
all you need to do is lubricate the fan bearings with light machine oil and make sure the fan is not hitting anything

Magnatron Heat Sink Gets Hot But Not Food


Important: Does it sound any louder or quieter when cooking than it used to?

If the magnetron's getting hot, you're getting high voltage.

Chances are it overheated and the magnet cracked.

If the internal cooling fan (usually separate from the vent fan) fails, that will allow it to overheat, too.

If it's within the magnetron warranty period, Sears will cover the part, but not the labor to visit you or do the work.

Heats, but think cooling fan may have stopped


If the cooling fan is not on, the magnetron can be destroyed.

It will have a full one-year warranty, then probably a 5-year warranty on the magnetron.

GE Customer Service is at http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/contact/

I would contact them right away.
