1. Unplug the microwave or turn off its breaker.

2. Open the door, then detach the control panel as shown in the video at
http://www.microwavedisplay.com and swing it down, but without disconnecting the wires.

If you have any trouble getting the grille off once the screws are removed, slide the hood vent grille to the left about 1/4", then then pull it forward.

On some models there are L-shaped clips that fit into a slot to hold bottom of the vent.

My Kenmore microwave says LOCK on the display. How do I unlock it?


  1. Touch and hold the "Enter/Start," "Start," "Lock" or "Control Lock" key, or key that has a padlock image, on your Kenmore microwave's control panel for about five seconds.
  2. Check that the word "Locked" has disappeared from the display.

Remove panel


Unplug microwave, remove top, "several screws" you will see the control board mounted behind keypad, you should see insert screws where the top of the microwave was, there may be one or more so take your time. If you end up disconnecting wires make sure you know where they go, gently remove frame and leave the microwave door open so no latches get broken.

If this an over the range microwave, there should be a couple screws on the door side of the control panel that you remove and the control panel will drop down so you can access the inside of the microwave.

After use, fan keeps running and control panel not working


Hi, this is a major chip fault. this chip is located on the control board and, it is responsible for initiating the cooking cycle correctly. you will need to replace the control board asap. it has failed.

F9 code on mod 721-80869400 kenmore elite


This is usually inverter trouble, but it may be the magnetron, controller, wiring, etc.

There should 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.

To find helpful exploded view diagrams and get part numbers, you can just enter your full model number at the Sears parts site.

Kenmore Mod. 721.80524500 microwave door will not lock.


If you gently push up on the door latch heads (hook-like devices sticking out of the door) there should be spring tension. If they just flop right up, the spring is off inside.

Normally the problem is not the spring, but a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.

If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.

The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.

Where is the capacitor located in the Kenmore Elite?


It depends on the model. It's usually behind the grille or control panel.

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, and locating components.

At our site, we have a video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Possible fuse blown


That would be located behind the control panel.

In essence, you unplug the oven, remove the grille from across the front, then you'll see the screw holding the control panel on.

Once that screw is removed, the control panel can be lifted up and out, then you should see the fuse.

You can probably find an exploded view by entering your FULL model number here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com

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