I went to use my microwave today and the lit control panel was BLANK. I have a Kenmore Elite 80802. I was able to cook my food by just hitting "manual cook" and spinning the dial and pressing the button. However, I can't time anything to cook anything special.

Thanks for using FixYa. If it is the screen that has gone bad it can be due to the fuse that has gone bad and/or the control panel that needs to be checked. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved else post a comment for further assistance.
Generally the F9 code indicates a problem with the door latch (usually upper) or with the control board.
You can do a Google search for my text file "doorsw.txt" to help you diagnose and repair door switch trouble.
BUT - since it always stops at 53 seconds, that leads me to think you have trouble with the control unit (circuit board / controller assembly).
Once you read and digest the info on door switches, please feel free to do an updated post and I'll be happy to help you further.
It may be corrupted ROM in the control unit. But let us know what you find out.
