If you can program the clock and cook time, but it won't start wen you press "Start" I would suspect a bad door switch or switch mount.

See these help files:

If you still need help, please post a new help request and be sure to include the full model number from the tag on the unit as well as details on your symptoms, such as what it's doping or not doing, and when & how the problem occurs.

The service manual is here, and gives you the disassembly instructions, but does not give part numbers.

So you would have to visit Encompass online or call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

First off all, I would hope the microwave is on its own breaker, rated at 30A, since the microwave has a fuse rated at 20A.

Normally if the high voltage capacitor is shorted, when you hit the "Start" pad to begin cooking, the fuse will blow instantly.

If you have a problem with the monitor interlock switch, the oven will blow the breaker when the door is closed.

But not always, so it may be a shorted high voltage capacitor, but I would first check for a shorted monitor interlock switch, as well as checking the mounts for all three door switches.

See my help file on door switches here.

Here is a link you or someone you know can use to test the high voltage capacitor, but read their safety warnings first:

The service manual is here, but it does not contain part numbers.

If you need to order parts, contact Encompass here or call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

Without a model number, I can only give you a general answer, but feel free to contact me with the full model number and detailed symptoms for a free estimate and/or do it yourself tips and part numbers, etc.

The problem is a failed keypad, which can occur due to manufacturing weaknesses, direct spraying of spray cleaners, heat or steam or grease accumulation due to failure to use the hood vent exhaust fan while cooking on the stove top, or just poor design.

Either way, you would have to replace the membrane keypad or outer door panel or control panel frame, depending on model.

Control Panel is giving a problem. Call Technical support.

There should be a separate fan to cool the magnetron. That fan blows into the cavity and should prevent moisture buildup.

You didn't mention your brand or model, but F9 code on an LG sometimes means either a bad door switch or a loose door switch mount.

See this file on door switches.

If a switch is all you need, we offer a universal type for only $5 postpaid which you can order here.

Here is more info on F9 as it relates to some brands and models:

Sears Kenmore Whierlpool LG 721.63683300

"F-9 on this microwave IS inverter related. There is a service tech troubleshooting document stuffed in behind the control board cover which has some testing proceedures. My problem was the magnatron and checked out bad with the help of this document. It would run for a few seconds making clicks and then say F-9. It has been working great since I replaced the magnatron PN 6324w1a002c."

"f9 model 721.63764300
Kenmore Elite 36 " over tne counter microwave is supplied by LG made by Gold Star, made in China. It's main problem is the high voltage inverter board supplyed by Sears Parts. If you get a F-9 code on your microwave display screen and the micro quits it's probably this board. Reset the machine by pulling the power plug and waiting an hour. If it is the high voltage board is at fault it will probably fail after 45 seconds of start up. This part is really hard to get at but is less than $100. A qualified technician should be able to remove and repair this item in less than hour. Some techs will quote you $300 labor, don't buy it, it should cost a $100 or less. No need to buy another microwave.

We would need to know your brand, full model number, and very specific symptoms to be able to help you with your microwave.

But FixYa's Web site is currently not notifying us experts when replies to our Clarification Requests are posted,so you would need to post all that in a new help request.

We'd be happy to help.
