can you get us the model #?
First, here are some tips to help with your model number:
  1. Don't enter a dash if it's not required.
  2. Don't enter any blank spaces.
  3. Be sure a zero is not the letter O.
  4. Be sure a lower case L is not a 1.
  5. Kenmore models always have a 3 digit prefix such as 110 or 665, then a period, then more numbers.
Next, look for an aluminum tag--or a silver or white adhesive label. The model number may be printed or stamped onto the tag and it may be written in two different type sizes or styles.

You might find the tag in one of these places:

Built in

  • On the face frame, or the side of the control panel with the door open
  • On the bottom of the unit


  • On the back of the unit
  • On the face frame, or the side of the control panel with the door open

ok the most common reason for your problem on these microwaves is the magnetron has failed, these are expensive and need to be replaced be a tech, in most cases its better to replace the microwave because it usually runs more for repair than the cost of a new microwave, hope this helps, thanks Bryan
