The model you have it listed under does not have any f codes. But I have run into this before so I think I know what you have. Double check the primary switch, this the top switch. You should have a white and/or yellow wire on the terminal marked NO and a blue and/or pink wire on the terminal marked C.

The F9 code is an inverter failure code. The tech manual gives next to nothing about trouble shooting for it. It basicly says replace inverter, if that doesn't fix the problem, replace control. However, since you also have no turntable operation this tells me there probably is a problem with the primary switch because the inverter and turntable both go to neutral through this switch and nothing else.  If you have a volt/ohm meter, you should have continuity through this switch when the door is closed and no continuity when it is open.

If you need more help, post back with the complete model number and I will try to walk you through it.

F9 is indeed a door switch error.

 

I would suspect that if the switches are good, a couple of wires may be reversed on them, or maybe one of the door switch mounts is broken.

 

There may be a wiring diagram in the oven, either pasted to the cover, or folded and stored behind the control panel.

 

If you can supply the actual model number (not 636xx, etc.) I can try to find a wiring diagram.

My Kenmore Microwave Hood combination starts running as soon as the door is closed & continues to run until I unplug the unit. I replaced the door latch a few years ago. Any idea what's wrong?


Sounds like door switch problems, you say you replaced the door latch but did you replace the door switches too. most newer units have door switches with small 3/16 terminals and small undersized wires going to them so they get how and melt the plastic body of the switch and it causes a back feed of voltage when it is not supposed to be there. Check under the blades of the switch and see if you have any melted plastic of the switch body there, that will be your bad switch I recommend replacing with a switch with 1/4 terminal, they hold up to the current much better. Change the wires to the switch with larger ones that can handle the current better without getting hot

You have a faulty keypad. You could probably special order this part from a local appliance parts supply store for 50-60$ or purchase a new microwave.

f-5 code on kenmore microwave oven means a problem with the door lock switch. Could be a bent latch or latch assembly that’s not actuating the latch switch correctly or that the latch switch itself is bad. Check the door switch, too.
plse do not forget to accept the solution.

MICROWAVE WILL NOT HEAT. F9 APPEARS IN THE DISPLAY WINDOW


F9 indicates a problem with the door latch.  There is a safety switch that will not allow the microwave to operate if it detects the door is not closed properly.  Even though physically it may seem the door is shut, the safety switch is not relaying the message to the onboard computer.  You need another door latch switch.

Kenmore elite ultrawave microhood combination error code F9


F9 is normally a bad door switch or door switch mount.

If 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.

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.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

F9 is an error that indicates an inverter board or magnetron
has failed. With the F9 error cleared, start the oven and
listen for a ticking sound. The inverter will attempt to
'fire' the magnetron 5 times.(ticking sound). If can hear
ticking, replace magnetron. Check owners manual. Part may be covered by limited warranty.

F9 error code


F9 is caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

This can be caused by slamming the door or by habitually opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
