Hi,
They are just a Torx set with a hole drilled in the center to allow for the security pin...
Grizzly has a set with the hole...

Check your local hardware...if they don't have them they can order them in for you...

With the price of Magnetrons and capacitors, and paying to service it, you are better off buying a new unit.

It should not pose a hazard as far as operation goes.. only if it becomes a sanitary issue..

Clean the interior per mfg suggestions.. and you may have to clean it more often now that you have this issue.

Microwaves cannot travel through metal.. you can actually use small pieces of foil (flat pieces) in most microwaves to shield items.. without any issues.

Best of luck

When the fuse blows in the microwave oven, it is often caused by a bad door switch. Sometimes food build up will clog it, or becomes defective, the only way to fix it is have it replaced.

If the fan doesn't work the magnetron may overheat and burn out. Look for a seized motor.
The light may be just a blown lamp.
Hope that helps.

Same problem with mine. Any advise on how to address problem would be appreciated.

KitchenAid... | Answered on Sep 27, 2010


I'm assuming your correct model number is KCMS145JSS? You have a broken "release lever", part number AP3033332. It's reference number 7 on the exploded view diagram found here: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/sect/4/g/4/4g4rya32jj.gif You can order it by part number from Appliance Parts Pros here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 If needed, you can download the owner's manual and installation guide here: http://www.kitchenaid.com/custserv/literature_search_results.jsp?searchTerm=kcms145jss If you need further help, please follow up. I appreciate your rating of this answer.

You will need to check to find out if the microwave has all the power coming to the critical units.
If the latch switch is active then the turntable and fan must work but if there is no heat, the check on the thermal cut off switch fitted on the side of the cabin , if faulty. , the pwoerr will be cut off to the magnetron. Check also to confirm that the high voltage capacitor is working and not shorted or open.
The relay on the main boarrd also must click to switch on or else the relay or relay drive must also be checked out.

KitchenAid... | Answered on Aug 27, 2010


The magnetron (the part that heats the food) may be ready to burn out. If you smell the burning, you should then unplug the microwave, open it up and see if you can determine for sure that it is coming from that part. Unfortunately even if I am right, it is almost more cost effective to just replace the microwave rather than replace that part. You can run this microwave till it dies if you want, but I would be ready with a new one.

Let me know how this works out for you.

KitchenAid... | Answered on Feb 09, 2010


you need a new magnetron

KitchenAid... | Answered on Feb 04, 2010


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems the issue is Magnetron that has gone bad and needs to be replaced. However, many things can do this but, common things are....loose high voltage wire.....poor solder joint on board.....magnetron.....power relay.....


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
