SOURCE: F7 Error code on Kenmore

On the tech insert found in a cavity under the cover of my Kenmore MHC, the F7 code means the inverter board ($90 - $130 street price Fall 2008) is bad and needs replacement. I am having this problem, and verified that the magnetron was not shorted to ground with an ohm meter. I verified with a volt meter that the magnetron was not getting any voltage applied across the cathode from the inverter board when the microwave is running ("WARNING"- don't do this test with the magnetron connected.) I have an inverter board on order.

SOURCE: 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.

The kitchen timer button does not work on my Kenmore circular wave microwave.


If it has membrane switches, you might have a bad switch. Or, you could have a bad connection between the touch panel and the circuit board. Or the circuit board itself could have a problem.

What does error E11 mean?


I think this microwave oven uses an inverter to control the power output of the magnetron. Usually the microwave will advertise this feature with a trade name like "accu-wave" or "true-power" or some similar label on the front of the microwave. Assuming that is the case here, then the E11 error means a bad inverter.

Can a Kenmore Microwave oven Model 401.8504*, 85143 be put on a counter top and used?


Most over-the-range (OTR) microwave ovens have the exhaust fan funning at low speed when the microwave oven is working. This is to keep the magnetron and electronics cool. And it sucks air in from the bottom, so if you just place this microwave flat on the countertop, it won't be able to suck air in, and it could overheat if you use it for more than just a few minutes. But if you can put it on some boards or some sort of grill so air can get to the bottom, then you should be okay to use it as a counter-top model.

Micro does not heat


Without your model number, I'd have to assume that it's a Whirlpool -made Kenmore. If so, then F6 means the cook relay is failing on the control circuit board.

We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so with a one-year guarantee.

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

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Kenmore Ultra Wave Microwave has no power


after removing the cover of microwave chk for continuty of cavity thermostat usually calld TCO(thermal cut off). it is located on top of the cavity and circular in shape.usually neutral wire goes through this 2 control board and this TCO is for protection of cavity from overheating.if this tco is open.then replace it.usually this happens when u cook for 2 long.

You should be able to find it at the Sears parts site.

Enter the model number from the tag on the unit.

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

Kenmore micriwave won't heat!


Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:

http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html (if it is NOT shorted, it's probably fine)
http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/mag_test.html
http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/xformer.html

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.

Your biggest suspects will be a bad connection or relay on the control panel, a bad connection on the magnetron terminals, a bad magnetron, a shorted high voltage rectifier diode or a bad high voltage transformer.

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

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

You may be able to find better part prices than Sears here.

Your magnetron may have a 5-9 year warranty, so check your manual for that. Sears may send you a magnetron if it's bad and warranty.
