I would recommend changing the diodes as well. This will usually take care of the problem.

Chances are you have a bad stirrer motor or the stirrer blade is jamming or loose on the motor shaft.

Your owner's manual should tell you how to remove the stirrer cover to check it.

If for some reason you don't have your owner's manual, you can download it free here, as well as the parts manual for your model.

You can also find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

My Kitchenaid combo convection/mw works on convect but has a loud humming and no heat on microwave.


A loud humming noise in microwave mode will usually be a shorted high voltage diode or bad magnetron.

Safe to use a microwave that is making a loud rattling sound?


It's not a good idea to continue to use it when it's making an unusual noise.
It may be arcing, which can lead to further failure or a fire, or it may be a defective stirrer or fan ,which can lead to uneven cooking or further failure.
$360 for a service call? Are you in Alaska or on Mars? That's insane. Maybe you can contact another servicer in your area?

KitchenAid KCMS1555RSS stopped heating. Everthing else works, full display works, time counts down, turntable rotates, light comes on, etc. but no heat. makes loud hum. Magnatron? Cost to replace? Unit is...


If it is making a loud noise, check the diode and magnetron for damage.
BEWARE OF LETHAL VOLTAGES!
The fault may be just the diode and a reasonable cost will be involved. If it is the magnetron, depending upon where you purchase one from will command the price.
Hope that helps.
