Question about Kenmore 66469 / 66462 / 66464 Microwave Oven
We have a Kenmore microwave oven (model # 721.62463200) that recently started running continuously (without heating up) when the door is closed. It only stops running when the door is opened or when it is unplugged. The microwave is about 1 year old. Any suggestions for what this might be would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
If it's less than a year old, it's under warranty and you should call the nearest Sears store for free repairs. Quite often this is due to a bad door switch. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure. 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 You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://www3.sears.com (the 3 is correct)
