Found info from this link

"According to the documentation I found in the panel of my Kenmore model 721.16362300 it's an inverter failure. 1) Unplug for at least 40 sec. see if this solves the problem 2) Check the resistance of the thermostat should be close to 0 OHM 3) check wiring to the inverter and control system 4) replace inverter module 5) If problem persists, replace control system assembly."

If the unit is less then 5 years old i believe it is still covered it may be the inverter board or a grounded Magnetron tube. If you need any further assistance let me know. I would contact kenmore directly.
Thanks,
Lee

    A pretty reliable test for the Magnetron is to operate the oven and
    listen for a ticking sound 5-6 times about a second apart. If you can
    hear the ticking the magnetron has failed. If there is no ticking, the
    control or inverter board failed.

    Here is kenmore's contact info if you need any other help let me know, and if you have a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly I would greatly appreciate it.
    Thanks,

Microwave keeps shutting off after a few seconds and error number H97 shows up on display pad. What does this error mean?


Error code H97 is an indication of a possible failure of the Magnetron, DPC board or the High Voltage Inverter board. It could be just a loose wire connection also between the DPC board and the High Voltage Inverter board.

This failure will require a service technician to diagnose and repair.

Tip

Error Code F8E5


F8E5 Exhaust air template detection failure 1. Press CANCEL - CANCEL - START, verify failure code, and then press CLOCK/OPTIONS to display the exhaust air temperature sensor reading. Verify the sensor temperature reading is at room temperature (typically 50?F to 90? [10?C to 32?C]) and verify failure code. If failure code matches complaint, continue to Step 2. 2. Unplug microwave oven or disconnect power. 3. Disconnect sensor from ACU PCBA. 4. Measure HF NTC resistance between connector pins and confirm reading is between 9.5k??and 10.5k??at room temperature. If measurement is not correct, or if a short or open circuit is found, replace sensor. 5. Replace all parts and panels before operating. 6. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power. 7. If the sensor temperature reading is still not correct, replace ACU PCBA. 8. If failure does not appear, stop.

My Panasonic NN-ST657W microwave has suddenly come up with an H97 code on display panel. Switches off after about 6 seconds before displaying this code. What has happened?


This oven is programmed with a self diagnostics failure code system which will help for troubleshooting, H97, H98 and H99 are the provided failure magnetron and inverter circuit problem areas. This section explains failure codes of H97, H98 and H99. H97, H98 and H99 appears in display window a short time after start key is pressed and there is no microwave oscillation.
There is not a lot the layman can do except maybe to try a new magnetron.
It is a job for an experienced Panasonic Microwave repair man.

I have a Kenmore over-the-stove microwave oven that is not heating food. Everything else works. I received a message of PF on the keypad. Is there anything I can do before I have to call a repair...


PF - Power Failure - PF error code indicates a power failure during the cycle.
Press and HOLD start to continue the cycle, or press off/pause to clear display.

UNIT POWERS OFF AND DISPLAYS "F-9"


an inverter failure. This can sometimes by caused by a power surge or glitch through the electrical lines. You can sometimes clear this fault by completely unplugging the microwave for 1 minute. Plug it back in and see if the fault code returns. If it does, then you have an internal component failure that will need to be serviced by a technician. Microwaves must be serviced by technicians due to the inherent dangers involved in repairing these appliances. Internal capacitors can retain a lethal electrical charge even though the unit is completely unplugged. A microwave radiation leakage test must be performed on the unit following any internal component repair

Model 72180883400


Hi,
F-9 error code indicates a defective control board, inverter or line voltage too high. f the microwave runs for about 7 seconds with a ticking sound..then stops and shows "F-9", it is the magnetron that has failed. The fact that the unit starts and runs with the TICKING SOUND means the control board is sending signal to inverter board and the inverter board is sending signal to magnetron. Magnetron is covered by full 5 year warranty, inverter board is only 3 years.

Shuts down after running about 8-9 seconds.


We'd need the full model number to be sure, but it sounds like an inverter failure. Due to the lethal voltages involved, I do not recommend that a person without training and experience ever work on these models. I would call Sears for service. See http://www.sears.com
