We have a Kenmore renge hood microwave open. When I push the start button it makes a loud sound similar to a motor that is stuck, some smoke is actually coming from the vent. It smells like burnt motor.   The microwave will not run at all. The fan motor runs okay and the range light works. Can this be fixed or should I just get a new microwave?
sounds like your high voltage transformer is gone. if its sounds like a loud buzz. your better off replacing the microwave than fixing it. sorry , it can run into allot of money to fix. hope this helps, thanks Bryan
