E-11 error on display window
Kenmore microwave keeps beeping with an E-11 error on the window. What does this mean and how do I fix it?
Is this a good question?
If it doesn't occur when you are using the microwave oven and not the stovetop then from your description it seems that the humidity sensor may be faulty. ( Part # 28 click on Oven Cabinet) or perhaps it is doing what it was designed to do and protect the microwave in times of high humidity. If it only just started doing this and you have mostly always at some time had steam rising from the stove in the past then perhaps it may have become more "sensitive" and has at least not gone completely faulty and stopped you from using the microwave altogether.
Given the cost of the part and the lack of any information that I can find regarding fault codes, I am loathe to suggest that you find out if this is the case by ordering a new part. You may wish to contact Sears regarding their Returns/Cancellations policy as it might allow you to test the new part (before you install it) to check if it has the same "reading" as the old, which you will obviously have to remove first.
Removing it to test using an Ohmmeter (I don't know what the normal reading should be) might also not be too easy as it seems to be a difficult part to replace as the "degree of difficulty" in the repair is quite high (according to the part information page.
