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.

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 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.)

Kenmore Microwave model Fan running and light on when door closed.

This is normal. Kenmore microwaves will stay running with fan and light on for a short time after food is cooked. The reason is to air out the microwave after cooking. Things like pop corn, Bacon etc. have strong smells after cooking. The ventilation helps to remove odors.

My sears kenmore counter top microwave model 99896 now takes 5 or 6 times for the start button to work.

It is from 1981, it is time for a new one. You are unlikely to get parts for one that old. It may be the button, but is more likely to be the contactor that the button activates. Take to a service centre and ask for a quote. Too dangerous to fix yourself. https://www.google.com/search?q=sears+kenmore+%2299896%22 ..

Kenmore making vibration and blowing fuse. Began repair

It is 'Magnetron'. You shouldn't be in there Kate, there is heart stopping 120,000 volts, a poisonous heavy metal core in the magnetron and radiation that can blind you in 6 seconds. Qualified service personnel only on microwave ovens. Depending on age it is probably beyond ecomomic repair. If you have had it longer than 6 years, it is. It sounds like one of your new parts was the wrong part. If you bought them off eBay, they will be out of failed machines that have been scrapped, cleaned and resold. If you have some attraction to this oven, take it in for service. The technicians have the experience and the test equipment.

The display light is dimming on my Kenmore Microwave hood combination model 401.8505 almost to the point where I can't see it.

If you can get behind the display, on the back of the circuit board, you will find a capacitor. It needs replacing, or you just buy a new display.
