time for someone to unplug it and look inside, if something smells like it burnt do not plug in etc.

Common failure parts in most microwaves are:

Diode most use:

Magnetron which is connected to the inverter most use (circuit board)

AC filter cap which varies in shape some what but can be still tested with a ohm meter, also if really bad will be buldged out on sides or top.

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.

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

 

If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

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.

Microwave ovens store a dangerous electric charge - a capacitor is typically used. If a microwave hasn't been left off for many hours, without it discharging, the charge can burn or kill you, so it is not a recommended do it yourself repair. The fuses can be purchased and replaced easily, and I have done it on several occasions, but the danger should not be underestimated - trained technicians even can be hurt if they make a mistake. I regret having tried to do it myself without knowing how to be safe.

The F-9 error code indicates a defective control board, inverter or line voltage too high.

Microwave ovens have capacitors, which can kill even professionals, or cause other damages.

Pretty sure the capacitor is bad and it is time to get a new microwave.

Deanna:

There is a door sensor in the door frame of your microwave that tells the microwave if the door is open or shut. That sensor is not working for some reason. The sensor is near the latch mechanism and is made of plastic and has probably broken and needs to be replaced. I would take it to a small appliance repair shop. Microwaves are nothing to fool with if you do not know what you are doing.

I suppose it is possible you pressed the wrong button - if you disconnect it from the power for a few minutes it should cancel whatever action you might have taken, though realistically it is more likely your microwave has developed a fault that is best tackled by the repair shop.

There are parts inside the unit that fail and can cause this. One such part is the high voltage diode. You can repair it yourself but if you dont know electronics, I dont recommend it.
