Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore microw/hood model#72163683300 not working code F-9

A:

The F9 code indicates a failure of the inverter or the control. The first thing to try is to unplug the microwave for at least 40 seconds and then plug it back in and try it. To check this problem would require removing the cabinet and checking the connections on the inverter. There is also a thermostat that should be checked for this problem. Microwaves are not good do-it-yourself project. Microwaves are inherently dangerous to service. Internal capacitors can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is unplugged. I recommend calling a service technician to repair this type of problem.

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

Depending on the age and the condition of the microwave, you may consider purchasing a new one. The price of microwaves has gone down a lot in the last few years. Please click on this link to view all of the microwaves we offer.

Q:

MY MICRO FLASHES F-9 ERROR CODE, I REPLACED INVERTER,DID NOT FIX, WHAT COULD IT BE

A:

The F-9 error code indicates power was lost to the high voltage section of the microwave.

This can be caused by a defective magnetron, inverter board, or the control board in the microwave. These are high voltage items and very hazardous to diagnose. I recommend you get a technician to diagnose and repair the microwave.

Q:

Our Kenmore Ultrawave microwave is displaying F9. What does this mean?

A:

The F9 error code indicates that you have an inverter failure. You can try to clear this code by unplugging the microwave for 1 minute. If the code returns after you plug the microwave back in, then it will need service by a technician. You could have a bad control board, a wiring failure or a number of other internal failures in the microwave. Microwaves are inherently dangerous to service. They have high voltage internal components that can retail a lethal electrical charge even when the unit is completely unplugged. A microwave radiation leakage test must be performed on the unit following any repair. These are the reasons why we recommend that you have the microwave serviced by a technician.
