I have a Kenmore Elite microhood, model number 721.64663300 manufactured Dec. 2003. One day, the microwave just stopped working. At first we suspected a surge and checked the house fusebox. The fuse was tripped, so it was reset. When I checked the microwave, it worked, but the turntable does not. I called Sears, but they can't give me an estimate. I live in a rural community and I'm not sure if it will be cost effective to have to pay for the trip charge, labour and parts as opposed to buying a replacement microhood. Since it is out of warranty, if the problem isn't too complex, I'd be willing to buy the parts and do it myself. Any info would be appreciated. Thank you.

Re: microhood turntable not working
You can find an exploded view of your microwave at http://www3.sears.com (yes, the 3 is there).
Ref # 3009 on the drawing is the turntable motor.
I would grab it by the shaft and gently try to turn it. If it's locked up or grinding, that's a sign it's bad.
It runs $24.49 plus shipping:
Part Description: Quantity: Part Number: Model Number: Price:
TT MOTOR 6549W1S013D 721.64663300 $ 24.49 $ 24.49
Be sure to unplug the oven before you work on it. Hope this helps!

F9 is normally a bad door switch or door switch mount.
you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety
information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, 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.
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.

our tray that goes around and back and forth jumps the tracks and stops and turns the other way I can put it back on track before it makes a round it jumps the tracks again and starts going the other way is there a part that need replaced
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.
