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

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.

F-9 code in display

F9 usually indicates a problem with the door switches or a broken door switch mount.

Microwave problem

I would first suspect a bad door switch or door switch mount.


If you follow up with your full model number, I can possibly give more precise advice.

Kenmore microwave model 721.85033010 works fine except the exhaust fan comes on just out the blue for no reason and wont shut off without unplugging.

It turns itself on
  1. Interlock switch If your microwave is turning itself on, the first thing to check is the interlock switch. This is usually the first thing to malfunction that could cause this issue. If the interlock switch is bad then it will need to be replaced.
  2. Main control board If your microwave is turning itself on and the interlock switch is still working, the probable cause is the main control board. If the control board is defective it will need to be replaced.
But before throwing parts at it give these folks a call... https://www.repairclinic.com/RepairHelp/How-To-Fix-A-Microwave/74-6-878350-/New/Kenmore-Microwave-Turns-On-By-Itself-721-85033010 Best to you

Kenmore over the range microwave tripping breaker

You've found the proper location if you're seeking for the fuse for your Kenmore microwave. The fuse is often found in the microwave's or behind the control panel. You must take off the microwave's exterior cover in order to reach it. After you've identified the fuse, you may see if it has blown. If so, you'll have to swap it out for a new one. It might be preferable to seek professional advice if you are unsure on how to proceed.

When trying to use convection with Kenmore hood combination it stars then stops and the display says F-5. What does that mean

If you are getting an F-5 error code on your Kenmore hood combination, it typically indicates a problem with the temperature sensor. This error code may occur when you are trying to use the convection feature, as you have described.

To troubleshoot this issue, try the following steps:

Turn off the power to the unit and unplug it from the electrical outlet.

Wait a few minutes, then plug the unit back in and turn on the power.

Try using the convection feature again and see if the error code reappears.

If the error code persists, you may need to replace the temperature sensor. You can consult the user manual for your Kenmore hood combination or contact Kenmore customer service for assistance with this.

If the unit is still under warranty, it's recommended to contact Kenmore customer service for repair or replacement options.

My Kenmore stove timer started going off every 45 seconds

It sounds like you may be experiencing an issue with your Kenmore stove's timer function. Here are a few steps you can try to resolve this issue:

Check the timer settings to make sure that the correct time and alarm settings have been entered.

Try resetting the timer by turning it off and back on again, or unplugging the stove and waiting a few minutes before plugging it back in.

Make sure that there are no buttons or knobs stuck on the stove, as this could cause the timer to activate repeatedly.

If these steps do not resolve the issue, it may be necessary to contact a professional appliance repair service for further assistance.

Where can I find the specs for a Kenmore oven model # 326B1016P001.

That is the strangest model number for a Kenmore and doesn't follow the normal 3 dot 7 ***.******* format of others. Just measure the front of what you have. They come in standard sizes. https://www.google.com/search?q=kenmore+%22326b1016p001%22+installation+manual ..

Kenmore microwave model 401.85053010 won't heat or cook anything.

Unfortunately, this is not something that can be diagnosed from a distance, unless you had access to a "Kill-a-Watt" meter or equivalent. It could be caused by a bad door switch, a bad relay on the main board, a bad magnetron, or a bad HV diode. (The HV capacitor is probably OK, because if it were bad [shorted], it would blow fuses.)

Kenmore Elite Microwave 721.79209010 Open Door and Microwave starts running;

Yes, a bad door interlock switch would cause this; either the top switch or the bottom switch. (The middle switch is called the Monitor switch. If it were bad, you microwave would blow fuses as soon as you press Start.)
