Question and Answers

Q:

What would cause my Kenmore Toast N Wave microwave to make a constant clatter when running on full power?

A:

I assume the microwave is still heating up food while it's making the noise. If it's not heating food the likely failure is a bad diode/rectifier. If it does heat food the noise could be emitting from a loose fan blade or the fan blade has shifted on the motor shaft and is rubbing the fan housing. The noise could also be a vibration between the high voltage transformer and the base of the microwave when it's energized.

NOTE: Microwaves can store 15,000 volts even when unplugged. Do not attempt to repair or remove the wrapper yourself.

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your microwave.

Q:

MIcrowave runs but is not heating

A:

I am sorry you are experiencing difficulties with your Microwave. Microwaves contain high voltage internal components that can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is completely unplugged. Door repairs and adjustments, even minor ones, can cause microwave leakage and a microwave shielding leakage test must be performed using a survey meter after any microwave service. I strongly suggest that you have this repair handled only by a qualified service technician. I have provided a link To Sears Home Services if you decide to schedule service. If you think it may be cost effective to just replace the unit, I have also provided a link to the Microwave section of Sears.com to price out what a replacement would cost.

If the microwave is running but not heating then the magnetron or high voltage transformer may be the cause. Microwaves do not make good do-it-yourself projects. Microwaves contain high-voltage components that can retain a lethal electrical charge of up to 2200 VAC -- even when the microwave is unplugged. Repairs and adjustments, even minor ones such as not heating, can cause microwave leakage. A microwave shielding leakage test should be performed after any microwave service. It is for these safety reasons that we are unable to guide you in microwave repairs and instead recommend scheduling service with a qualified service technician. You can schedule service online with Sears Home Services or by calling 1-800-4-MY-HOME. We thank you for your understanding in this matter and hope we can help you with other questions and repairs in the future.

A:

Since a fuse is an internal component, it should only be accessed and replaced by a service technician if it is blown. The technician would also need to determine the cause of the fuse blowing if it is blown. Internal microwave failures must be diagnosed and repaired by technicians due to the inherent dangers of working on these appliances. Internal capacitors in the microwave can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is completely unplugged. A microwave radiation leakage test must be performed on the unit using proper equipment following any internal component repair. For these reasons, I recommend calling a service technician if you suspect this type of internal microwave component failure.

NOTE: Make sure that you have checked the outlet that the microwave is plugged into. A failed outlet or blown house fuse can create the same symptoms as a blown fuse inside the microwave.

If you would like to have a Sears service tech repair the microwave you can call 1-800-469-4663 to schedule service.
