    Did anyone have a suggestion for this question. The same thing happened to us. Our hydro went out for a few hours and then the digital panel is blank.

It shows that is there is some direct short circuit in the product if you are technical person then only check one by one HT diode,HT capacitor and finally HT transformer & megnatron.

SOURCE: Kenmore Microwave Oven Sudden Power Reduction

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.

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

Usually, when your microwave oven doesn't work it all, the internal fuse (thermal fuse) is blown. This fuse protects both you and the oven. When it blows, you need to have a qualified appliance repair technician replace it.

Door switch If the fuse isn't the problem, check the door hooks and the door-release button. When these are broken, the door switch doesn't activate, so the oven can't work.

SOURCE: Kenmore elite microwave over the range type keeps

this could be caused by a shorted diode or bad transformer in the unit itself, diodes are generally inexpensive repairs and are fairly easy to perform. Transformers are quite a bit more expensive and can be more difficult to replace. The diode is the most common problem. To test the diode you can either use a ohm meter or a "AA" battery, short piece of wire or rolled up alluminum foil, scotch tape and a flashlight light bulb, to use the bulb technique simply dismantle the flashlight until you can easily access the 2 connectors of the bulb (one located at the bottom of the bulb and the other being the metal bulb casing) then take the twisted up alluminum foil and tape one end to one end of the battery ensuring the is a good connection, then tape the other end of the alluminum foil to the metal casing of the light bulb, after these steps have been performed, remove the diode from the microwave completely so all u have in your hands is the diode (they are usually connected with a flat terminal and a screw), if 2 identical flat terminals are used, be sure to make a small diagram of how the diode came out (if the white line on the diode is connected to the microwave transformer, be sure to install it the same way, improper installation can cause more damage!) now that you have the diode out simply touch one end of the diode to the battery and the other end to the untaped connector of the light bulb, if the light comes on, reverse the diode, if the light is still on when reversed the diode is short, if the light doesn't come on when reversed the diode is fine, current will only pass one way through a good diode and will pass through both directions if its bad, and in very rare cases the diode will not conduct in any direction. if the diode is fine I would have to suggest taking it into a service center or considder buying a new one as other parts can be in the $70-$160 range. hope this helps.

Hi there, I have a Kenmore Elite microwave that recently started tripping the breaker every time the door is opened when running. If I stop the microwave, THEN open the door it does not do it. Ideas?


they use a lot of power and should have it's own outlet, try plugging it in to the same plug as refrigerator, it's a double circuit and will have the power to supply both units, there should also be another plug in kitchen that is double circuit, keep trying different plug to you find it..
double circuit means top has 1 breaker and bottom is on another breaker

Not realy...Kenmore Elite microwave runs 3 seconds then stops. All other functions work ok. Model 790.80363310


Not familiar with That Kenmore elite model. But with the symptoms I would bet your unit may have an inverter, which is the power source for the part that puts out the microwave energy the Magnetron to run, If that is the case it could be a bad inverter AND a bad magnetron. If the unit isn't anything really special to you I would recommend replacing it as the repair will be quite expensive

We have a kenmore microwave oven & keeps tripping our breaker switch. Its not even a year old. What is the problem?


Your microwave should be on a 20 amp dedicated circuit. Often people add these later after initial construction and do not have an isolated circuit for it. If you have this on a circuit with other outlets or possibly the refrigerator, this can cause the circuit overload and trip your breaker. Try running an extension cord from another circuit that is not being used such as outlets, but not GFI outlets! and see if your microwave operates then. If not you have an internal issue with the microwave and it could be a defective Magnetron or doorswitch assy causing the problem.

Kenmore Elite Microwave oven 63792 doesn't heat - all lights, turntable, fan, etc. work just fine.


Most likely it would be a bad magnetron since the light, turntable, and vent fan are running.

Mcd 1311st blowing circuit breaker


Generally microwaves should be on their own breaker. Hard wired ones are required to be by code.

If yours has a plug - make sure the plug is original with the unit, not added later or spliced onto hard-wired power leads.

Plug into and outlet rated 15A as the only thing on a 15A branch circuit and try again. If it still trips, try a 20A line and circuit. If it trips that, trash the microwave and buy a new one. Nothing is meant to be repaired inside.

My Kenmore elite microwave is plugged into a surge protector and keep tripping the surge protector. I cannot use the microwave for more then a minute before it trips. Can you help


Your microwave is pulling more amps than the surge protector can handle. Remove the surge protector from the circuit and plug oven into wall outlet. Preferrably a GFCI circuit. Or you could puchase a surge protector with a higher amp tolerance.

Machine will not turn on


from online Microwave Repair Manual: Totally dead oven (no lights, no clock, no display, no fan, no heat...)First, check power to the outlet using a lamp or radio you know works. The fuse or circuit breaker at your service panel may have blown/tripped due to an overload or fault in the microwave oven or some other appliance. You may just have too many appliances plugged into this circuit - microwave ovens are high current appliances and should be on a dedicated circuit if possible. If you attempt to run a heating appliance like a toaster or fryer at the same time, you *will* blow the fuse or trip the circuit breaker. A refrigerator should never be plugged into the same circuit for this reason as well - you really don't want it to be without power because of your popcorn!

If you find the fuse blown or circuit breaker tripped, unplug everything from the circuit to which the microwave is connected (keep in mind that other outlets may be fed from the same circuit). Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker. If the same thing happens again, you have a problem with the outlet or other wiring on the same branch circuit. If plugging in the microwave causes the fuse to blow or circuit breaker to trip immediately, there is a short circuit in the power cord or elsewhere.

The microwave oven may be powered from a GFCI outlet or downstream of one and the GFCI may have tripped. (Removing a broken oven lamp has been known to happen.) The GFCI outlet may not be in an obvious location but first check the countertop outlets. The tripped GFCI could be in the garage or almost anywhere else! Pushing the RESET button may be all that's needed.

Next, try to set the clock. With some ovens the screen will be totally blank following a power outage - there may be nothing wrong with it. Furthermore, some ovens will not allow you perform any cooking related actions until the clock is set to a valid time.

Assuming these are not your problems, a fuse has probably blown although a dead controller is a possibility.


While you can do some repairs on your microwave, what you don't know can kill you... even on an unplugged microwave, so make sure you understand the dangers and how to reduce them before you try anything inside a microwave. If you want to do more yourself, go to the link at the top of this post.

Blowing main breaker


I have a hard time believing that the home's main breaker is tripping instead of the branch circuit breaker that feeds the microwave. I suspect it is really just a difference in terms. You should disconnect it and try using in another outlet - preferably one on a different circuit if possible. If the breaker continues to trip; this appliance should be disconnected and either be discarded, repaired or replaced before using again.

If the microwave works as expected (on a different circuit), it may indicate the original circuit is overloaded. Microwave overs are supposed to be installed on a dedicated circuit. This means only one outlet is on the circuit - no other loads (lights, appliances, etc.) are permitted on this circuit. A microwave typically requires 10 Amps or more when on "high" and will require a significant portion of the power supplied by a 15 or 20 amp circuit breaker. There is little unused to power much of anything else. If other appliances go out when the microwave trips the circuit breaker, you should contact an electrician to have a dedicated outlet installed for the microwave.

I hope this helps!
