20 Most Recent Kenmore 62622 Microwave Oven - Page 9 Questions & Answers


We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.

Usually means the magnetron or one of the power transistors is bad. Not worth fixing time to get a new microwave.

Sounds to me like a faulty keypad unit.

Some people use spray cleaners on the M/Wave and this gets into the keypad and corrodes them or shorts them out. Even the ones that appear to be touchpads!
I don't have the parts list at this site to tell you what to order, but quote the model number to SEARS and they will be able to help you. If you dont want to do it youreself TAKE it to a repair shop it is cheaper than having a service person come out to do the job.

No, the magnetron gets its power from the inverter assembly. The actual issue here is a defective or damaged inverter. Replacing the inverter assembly will correct this issue.

I would be sure to check the microwave's outlet under a load.

One good way is to use a toaster or hair dryer for about a minute to see if they run at full power and run without their heating elements dimming.

If the power at the outlet is steady, I would suggest a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If it still fails to heat properly, I would say you have a failing magnetron, and it would just be a coincidence that the failure began after the new wiring was installed.

If you need to order the magnetron, Sears sells it for $73.13, but you can get it for $41.84 here.

Check the fuse inside the cabinet on the floor near where the power comes in.

Sounds like a bearing is tightening up when it get heated up with use. Then after a cool down period it works normally until using it heats it up again. Eric

The door should come off fairly easily. All you have to do on MOST microwave ovens is open the door all the way and lift straight up at the hinges. The door will come off the hinge pins.

On some models, there may be a small hinge pin on the top hinge that you remove, then lift up.

You may have to remove the grill panel above the door (if equipped) to allow for clearance for the door to come off.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this helpful.

Only one thing heats in micro wave. If every thing works but heat, sounds like you have a bad mag tube. (Magnitron)

Kenmore 62622... | Answered on Sep 02, 2009


Put a cup of water in itfor 2 min. if its hot after 2 min, the mag is working but possibly on it;s way out. could also be the bearings in the fan getting ready to go out.

It is not the most straight forward job and can be quite tricky for the uninitiated.
If its under warranty ( but I guess its not looking at the model # , ) return it!

The cost of a magnatron and a board is expensive (It is likely they are both involved in this as there sound like arcing) I would just replace the whole unit. Microwaves are not expensive items these days, but ones own life fiddling with electrics is still quite valuable.

one of the 2 door switches is bad.they can be accessed by removing the control panel.switch is mounted on door latch assly.switch is about $ 10.00 and easy to replace.

HI, Check the following to address this issue further.

Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).

1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat. These thermostats are located in the dryer vent duct and sometimes mounted on the blower assembly as well.
