First, Unplug the microwave. Remove the top housing or cover from the unit by removing just the screws holding the cover on.Most of the screws will be philips head.Sometimes manufactures will use quarter inch hex or torc head screws.From the rear of the cover, lift up and pull back to remove.CAUTION:BE CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH ANYTHING IN THE HIGH VOLTAGE SECTION.You can then locate the lamp and replace it.Always use the same wattage lamp when replacing.Remember, when reinstalling the top cover, you must slide the top and side guides into place located at the front inside cover. Use two people if possible, it makes it alot faster.Then reinstall all screws.Do not overtite.Then your ready for use.

If you mean the inside cavity light, I've never heard of one that allowed you to turn it off while cooking.
If you're talking about the cooktop lights, they should be selectable.
Your owner's manual will cover that.

Kenmore microwave oven model # 721 63684300 built 5/2003. Does not heat, after 25-30 sec. F9 appears on keypad. Everything else works---timer, clock, lights, horizontal turnstyle.


I checked the owners manual and it does not list the fault codes. Manufactures leave this information out of the manual most of the time so you have to call them for service.

Call 1-800-4-my-home (sears) and tell them the problem. You will also need to provide the m# so have that ready when you call.

Good Luck

I need manuals for galaxy 721.80002401


You should be able to download the owner's manual from the Sears parts site.

Just enter your model number
721.80002401 there.

On the resulting page, look to the right for the blue "View manuals" button. Click there.

That Sears-related site has many free manuals. While the manuals they list there are all free, they will ask you to register.

Many times, the owner's manual will also have the installation instructions inside.

If yours is not listed there for free, you would have to order it through the
Sears parts site.

Buttons including light, cook time, etc will work infrequently


Good news, even though the electronic controls (circuit boards) are different, the touch pads for the two units are the same. As far as the nomenclature behind the model numbers/letters, this information is rarely known or needed.

Please take the time to give this solution a fix ya rating.

Below are some applicable links for you for future reference.

Kenmore Microwave Oven - Clock dosen't work


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in and try again.

If that doesn't work, you may have a problem with the keypad, but your best bet is to check your owner's manual first.

If for some reason you don;t have yours, you can probably get it via the Sears site.

Just enter your model number there.

A full Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########

On the resulting page, look to the right for the blue "View manuals" button. Click there.

Tappan microwave TMV151F will lose power during operation. I think around 3 or 4 minutes.


The magnetron is overheating and causing the magnetron thermostat to open.

Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

This is usually caused when the internal cooling fan is not running or by a magnetron that is failing.

When I say internal cooling fan, I do not mean the hood vent exhaust fan which you can turn on and off manually.

I'm instead talking about the internal fan which comes on automatically whenever you microwave.

It is vital that the cooling fan runs, or the magnetron will be
destroyed.


It may also be a clogged exhaust duct or filter. Grease filters should be cleaned regularly and charcoal filters should be replaced (not cleaned) every 6-12 months.

You can refer to your owner;s manual for that info.

You can download most Maytag / Whirlpool / Tappan owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

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 usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

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.

That would be a problem with your primary interlock switch or its mount.

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a sometimes problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

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

Fan stopped working in JVM1533BD microwave


I assume you're talking about the hood fan which ventilates the cook top and blows air through the grille across the top. If so, it's okay to use the microwave with that not working, but if you boil something on the stove, an external fan is definitely needed to keep mositure from going up into the microwave controls. If the cooling fan INSIDE the microwave (behind the keypad) is not working, then you do NOT want to run it unit it is fixed. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info 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 (without the suffix) here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
