Does the outlet have power that it is plugged into? If not, check the circuit breaker, if it does, then remove the outer panel of the microwave (screws on the backside) and find the fuse and see if it looks black, if it does, then replace, if not, then let me know.

good luck

Can a microwave be repaired?

Yes it is repairable, but if you do not have any experience in the repair of microwave ovens do not engage in their repairs because it is one of the most dangerous household appliances and the consequences can be disastrous. If light and turntable works than low voltage circuit (220V or 110V) works well. In this case the problem is in a high voltage (HV) circuit which is made up of the magnetron, HV diode (rectifier), HV capacitor and HV fuse or protect diode. Failure is in any of these components in "HV circuit" or in the main board. If light and turntable does not work than fault could be in power supply elements like: power supply cord, transformer, power board, fuse (glass or ceramic, ussualy 8A, 10A or 12A) on power board.

Our kenmore microwave lights up buts does not operate now what?

Sounds like you have a bad door switch. Need to call a repairman. It should be under warranty and not cost you anything to repair it.

How do i change the turntable motor on a sears 72163259301

Go to the bottom of the oven - they have several side-by-side holes that when you cut through the little bit of material between the holes, allows you to create your own door - inside should be your turntable motor - Again this is a standard type location - Commercial units may not have turntables, but the 'stirrer' is instead located below the plain table on which you rest your food

Kenmore 665.6061200 over range microwave. Problem started a few days ago with a clicking sound from the RH side of the unit (seemingly behind the control panel), about 3 clicks per second for about 3-4...

The most likely cause of the clicking sound is the power relay that is connected to the microwaves PCB (circuit board) that turns the magnetron on and off. If starting to fail it may result in multiple clicks, then once fully failed, your microwave would simply not heat anything (as the high voltage components would not be getting power).
Unless you have a strength in electronics and repair, and understand the lethal dangers involved in working on a microwave, even one that is unplugged, this problem will likely need to be repaired by a qualified service centre.
Depending on the microwave design and the technician the whole relay circuit board may need to be replaced making this repair vary from relatively inexpensive to more expensive.

I have a Kenmore over-the-stove microwave oven that is not heating food. Everything else works. I received a message of PF on the keypad. Is there anything I can do before I have to call a repair...

PF - Power Failure - PF error code indicates a power failure during the cycle.
Press and HOLD start to continue the cycle, or press off/pause to clear display.

Kenmore over range microwave oven / no power at all

Unfortunately, there is a good chance that when the bulb shorted out, it damaged the control board. The only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance. The relays for the fan and the lights are part of the board. The power should always be disconnected when these bulbs are replaced or the board will be damaged. We would have an appliance repair person take a look to see what the deal is with the microwave.
