Good afternoon and Welcome to Justanswer,

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today.

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with your Kenwood Microwave.

Thank you.

This indicates an issue with the Magnetron and/or High voltage transformer, that is faulty and will need replacement.

When you turn on the Microwave it starts and then after few seconds magnetron kicks in however, if control detects magnetron has not started to heat it will turn itself off or even trip the circuit or will keep on running without heating.

When magnetron is faulty the Inverter board is replaced as well.

Alternatively, you may call Kenwood at 0344(###) ###-####to book repair.

If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.
