Question about Kenmore 62622 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Do you know of a wiring diagram or installation instructions online that might assist me to install a magnetron and air guide in my 13 month old Kenmore Elite Ulta Wave Microwave Hood Combination Model #72163763300?? If I order the parts and tear into the microwave, is the installation going to be self-explanatory??

SOURCE: Kenmore ultra elite microwave hood combination

F9 code can mean something different depending upon the particular model.....
1.) IF your Microwave uses "UltraWave technology"/"SmartWave technology"...Then either the Magnetron has failed or the Inverter board has failed OR maybe the control board has failed (HUH?).
2.) IF your Microwave does NOT use "UltraWave technology"/"SmartWave technology" then one or more of the door switches has failed.

** "UltraWave technology"/"SmartWave technology" **
I'll explain a few things about this wonderful technology...
The control board (accepts the pushbutton commands) has to talk to the inverter board to tell it how much power should be applied to the magnetron. The inverter board will then power the magnetron and inform the control board if the magnetron is working OK.
If there is something wrong with the magnetron or inverter board or a there is a communication breakdown between the control board and the inverter board...WA-LA-----F9----

A pretty reliable test for the Magnetron is to operate the oven and listen for a ticking sound 5-6 times about a second apart. If you can hear the ticking....The magnetron has failed..if no ticking, the control or inverter board failed.

Note: This 'technology' may come in other flavors as well

SOURCE: F7 Error code on Kenmore

The 665 the model number prefix means it's made by Whirlpool. F7 means it has a problem with the control board or keypad.

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

If it still has a problem, we repair these for customers nationwide with our guaranteed $39.95 service. If a new keypad were needed, that would add about $60 to the repair cost.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

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.

I would call Sears service (and ask for the manager) every day until they send the guy back with the right parts!

If that somehow doesn't work, you can order the parts at the Sears parts site.

You can find out which parts you need in the owner's / installation manual. If you don't have it,
you can just enter your full model number at the Sears parts site.

On the resulting page, look to the right for the blue "View manuals" button. Click there.

That Sears-related site has many free manuals. While the manuals they list there are all free, they will ask you to register.

Many times, the owner's manual will have the installation instructions inside.

If yours is not listed there for free, you would have to order it through the
Sears parts site.

No heat from my JVM1640CJ GE microwave. Fan, lights work fine. Unit is less than 5 years old.....I've read some posts on this site - could it be a bad door switch? chip


More than likely it's the magnetron and/or diode, chances are it may still be under warranty. Online owners manual states 5 year warranty on magnetron. Part only, service call and installation not included. Diode not covered. They require serial number, and will let you know if it's still under warranty. Installation appears to be simple, UNPLUG MICROWAVE THEN MAKE SURE YOU DISCHARGE CAPACITOR. INJURY OR POSSIBLE DEATH IF NOT DISCHARGED PROPERLY. Google how to install magnetron and discharge capacitor. It will save you approx $ 250 - 300 doing it yourself. Hope this helps. Be Safe

We installed a GE JVM1750 and rotated the fan to recirculate the air. Air blows out the vent in the front, but does not pull air in from the bottom.... any ideas?


I would first suggest that you consult the owner's manual and installation guide.

If for some reason you don't have yours, you can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You may have a clogged charcoal filter so that should be checked. They need to be replaced about every six months or so.

Yes, there is a thermostat on the magnetron that detects when it overheats.

When it does, it will shut down power until it cools back down.

This protects the magnetron from the destruction posed by overheating, which can be caused by:
  • operating oven without cover(s) in place
  • wrong magnetron installed in oven
  • an old or otherwise failing magnetron
  • cracked magnetron magnet
  • improper power line voltage (should be 110-125VAC)
  • foods low in moisture (popcorn & bacon, e.g. - add 1/2 cup of water in rear oven)
  • failed or inoperable cooling fan or hood vent exhaust fan
  • deteriorating foam weatherstripping seals in air ducts or on outside cover
  • blocked air vents (dust, animal nest debris, insufficient free air space behind & around oven, etc.)
  • clogged or greasy charcoal filter or grease filter
  • blocked duct in hood vent exhaust
Check as many of these these things as you can and correct as necessary.

Ge spacemaker just stops as if it over heats, then come back on after 5 to 10 minutes


Chances are the magnetron is overheating and its thermostat is tripping, interrupting power to the whole oven until it cools back down.

This provides critical protection for the magnetron.

An overheating magnetron can be due to:
  • operating oven without cover(s) in place
  • wrong magnetron installed in oven
  • an old or otherwise failing magnetron
  • cracked magnetron magnet
  • improper power line voltage at outlet (should be 110-125VAC)
  • cooking foods low in moisture (popcorn & bacon, e.g. - add 1/2 cup of water in rear oven)
  • failed or inoperable cooling fan or hood vent exhaust fan
  • deteriorating foam weatherstripping seals in air ducts or on outside cover
  • blocked air vents (dust, animal nest debris, insufficient free air space behind & around oven, etc.)
  • clogged or greasy charcoal filter or grease filter
  • blocked duct in hood vent exhaust
Accessing some parts for testing will require you to pull the oven from the wall and remove the cover.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.


You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

Some GE models have a nine or ten year warranty on the magnetron. You'd have to check your owner's manual to find out.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I'd recommend that your bookmark this link to your favorites.


If it's under magnetron warranty, GE will send you the magnetron to do it yourself. Call them at 888-239-6832.

Or you can contact GE to find a local authorized servicer.

If nothing else, you can save about $75 by taking it to the shop yourself.

Will not heat


With the symptoms you describe, it's probably a bad magnetron.

If you or someone you know want to replace the magnetron yourself, you will need to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions
here.

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.

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.

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

Since it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years) but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.

Since it's under magnetron warranty, GE will send you the magnetron to do it yourself. Call them at 888-239-6832.

Be persistent. You may have to speak with a supervisor.

Sounds like a truck engine braking. Sometimes like a buzzer at a basketball game.


With the symptoms you have, I would most strongly suspect a shorted high voltage rectifier diode or a bad magnetron.

A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.

You can download owner's manuals and installation instructions for several brands (including Amana, Frigidaire, Jenn-Air, Kitchenaid, Litton, Maytag, Roper, Tappan, Thermador and Whirlpool) here.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:

http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html
(if it's not shorted, it's probably okay)

(even if the magnetron passes these tests, it can still be bad. If you have high voltage and the diode is good, assume the magnetron is bad)

Timer counts down, light turns on, no fan, no heat.


Hi bboelter,

When you say "no heat", I take that to mean it's not heating the food up. When a microwave suddenly stops heating food, but still appears to run (the control electronics and light are usually a separate circuit), it's usually a defective/dead magnetron. Given the age of the oven (13+years), this is also points toward the magnetron. The fan _may_ or may not be on the same circuit as the magnetron, that's hard to say without a wiring diagram or schematic.

Prices for replacement/repair will vary, you will need to find out what that service costs in your area before having enough information to decide on repair or replacement. If you tell the repairer that you suspect the magnetron, they should be able to quote you a fairly accurate estimate.

When my first microwave lost it's magnetron (~20 yrs ago), it was 5 years old at the time, and the cost of buying a new oven was only a little more than the repair - but I had the repair done anyhow. Since then, we've replaced the entire oven instead (twice). Newer ones may have more power/less energy wastage, etc.

If I can be of further assistance, or if you have questions about any of my response(s), please let me know before rating me.

If this solves the issue, please rate it accordingly. My goal is to earn a "FixYa" rating from everyone I help.

Thanks for using Fixya.com,

Jon

Microwave dead even though power works


It sounds like the magnetron overheated and opened the thermal fuse on the magnetron.

This can be caused when the internal cooling fan is not running or by a magnetron that is failing.

When I say internal cooling fan, I do not mean the hood vent exhaust fan which you can turn on and off manually.

I'm instead talking about the internal fan which comes on automatically whenever you microwave.

It is vital that the cooling fan runs, or the magnetron will be destroyed.

There should 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.

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.

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

The magnetron will have a 5 to 9 year warranty. Your manual will tell you that.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

If needed, GE may send you a replacement magnetron. GE Customer Service is here.

Microwave oven does not heat anything


It's probably a defective magnetron.

This should have a one-year full parts and labor warranty, then another several years on the magnetron, typically 9 years.

A typical service call for this might run about $175 for the visit and repair labor, assuming the magnetron is still covered under warranty. Compare that to the cost of buying and installing a comparable oven.

Your owner's manual will tell you how long the magnetron warranty is.

You can save that home visit charge and get a diagnosis for about $25 or so by removing it from the wall and taking it to the nearest GE-authorized servicer.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.
