Question about Kenmore 63662 / 63664 / 63669 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Kenmore built-in microwave 63662/... power just stopped

I just had a Sears repairman here to try to fix the microwave. It just stopped working and has no power. The repairman seemed puzzled and eliminated the obvious problems (fuse, connections, etc.). By process of elimination, he decided it must be the thermostat. He ordered a new one and will be back in about 1 1/2 weeks to install it. It will cost me a little over $200 to fix it. It is about 5 years old. Should I repair it or purchase a new microwave?

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.

The part will probably cost less than $25 if you get it yourself.

"The repairman seemed puzzled". LOL! Bet you couldn't wait to hand him your money!!

Microwave stopped heating


In all likelihood the mangnetron is failing, or perhaps even the Power Supply is faulty. You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man.
Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one

Microwave stopped heating


I had the same oven for one and a half years and had the same problem. Had the sears repairman come out and he said the magnetron burned out and needed replacing for $285. It was never under warranty with the warranty that came with oven. I couldn't believe it! We had an independent repairman look at it and he found a design flaw that causes the magnetron to blow. If you replace the matnetron (megnatron?) it will work for awhile, maybe, but then just need to be replaced again. It's cheaper to buy a new microwave. In fact, I got out our old microwave that's over 20 yrs. old and still works--just isn't as fast and as new ovens. Good luck!

No power at all


You probably blew the fuse in the microwave.

You can usually find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number at the Sears parts site.

There may also be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

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

Turntable doesn't turn


If you just purchased and Installed the microwave, I would call Sears and tell them what is happening, generally, it would still be under warranty if less than a year old. If its a countertop model, you may have to take it in, otherwise they should come to the home for the repair. I would also NOT indicate that you have looked at it as that would void your warranty.
Otherwise, it seems like the problem could be, a) touchpad , b) a relay or c) the main control board

Noisy turntable


I has this problem with a Sears unit. The repairman simply removed the glass tray, cleaned all the wheels and the 3 toothed driver wheel in the middle and it became quiet. He explained that if any buildup keeps the plate from properly seating on the gear, it gets very noisy.
