Disabling the beep on a Kenmore microwave

I have Kenmore microwave model 721.61820100.
It has an "Option" button. Press it. The display say "NUMBER"
Then press "1". The display should say "SOUND" and then "OFF".
Press "Start" and that beast turns silent, well not really, but the beeps are goooone.

If for some reason you don't like it this way repeat the sequence and the sound this time will turn "ON".

Kenmore Microwave model Fan running and light on when door closed.

This is normal. Kenmore microwaves will stay running with fan and light on for a short time after food is cooked. The reason is to air out the microwave after cooking. Things like pop corn, Bacon etc. have strong smells after cooking. The ventilation helps to remove odors.

My sears kenmore counter top microwave model 99896 now takes 5 or 6 times for the start button to work.

It is from 1981, it is time for a new one. You are unlikely to get parts for one that old. It may be the button, but is more likely to be the contactor that the button activates. Take to a service centre and ask for a quote. Too dangerous to fix yourself. https://www.google.com/search?q=sears+kenmore+%2299896%22 ..

Kenmore making vibration and blowing fuse. Began repair

It is 'Magnetron'. You shouldn't be in there Kate, there is heart stopping 120,000 volts, a poisonous heavy metal core in the magnetron and radiation that can blind you in 6 seconds. Qualified service personnel only on microwave ovens. Depending on age it is probably beyond ecomomic repair. If you have had it longer than 6 years, it is. It sounds like one of your new parts was the wrong part. If you bought them off eBay, they will be out of failed machines that have been scrapped, cleaned and resold. If you have some attraction to this oven, take it in for service. The technicians have the experience and the test equipment.

The display light is dimming on my Kenmore Microwave hood combination model 401.8505 almost to the point where I can't see it.

If you can get behind the display, on the back of the circuit board, you will find a capacitor. It needs replacing, or you just buy a new display.

The microwave stopped working while not in service. What's wrong?

For any microwave issues you will need a service technician. They are too dangerous to work on. It could be an internal fuse, it could be the control board, the huge capacitor in there or it could be the magnetron.

Kenmore elite microwave/convection oven will not heat on microwave.

You need to take it to a Service Centre. They are too dangerous to work on yourself and the case is secured by special security screws. You can check the back to see if there is a screw in, out pull out fuse carrier.
