Question and Answers

Q:

My Kenmore Elite Microwave - model 72163662300 is giving us an F9 error message. What does that mean?

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern. The "F9" fault code implies an inverter failure. Unplug the microwave for at least 40 seconds and then reapply power. If this does not solve the problem then you will need to call and set up a service appointment to have your microwave diagnosed and repaired.

You can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Q:

Kenmore microwave model 72163662300 turns off after 30 seconds and shows an F-9 error code. How do I fix it?

A:

The F9 error code indicates power was lost to the magnetron of your microwave while cooking. This can be caused by the control board, the inverter board, the magnetron, or a faulty connection between the 3.

These parts are fairly expensive and it would be best to have a technician diagnose and repair the microwave.

Q:

I have a kenmore eite ultra wave modle number 72163662300 when I go to use it . It run for a few mins and then it stop and F-9 shows up on it

A:

Joseph P. provided a link for a previous answer in the above response that explains the cause of this F-9 error code. A failed inverter board is the most common failure. As noted in that previous answer, a service technician would need to diagnose and repair this internal component failure due to the inherent danger of servicing a microwave. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

The previous answer pointed out that it may be more economical to replace the microwave instead of having it repaired. You can visit Sears.com to view current microwave models. Here is a link for one example of a reasonably priced current model: Kenmore Stainless Steel 30 in. Microhood Combination - 8503 .
