SOURCE: microwave stopped working completely

Fan turned on after cooking because a thermostat got to hot and tripped turning on the fan to try to cool the unit.  The unit went completely dead when thermal fuse tripped which is located above the cavity on the left side.

SOURCE: kitchenaid microwave hood combo KHMS155LSS

First, do not leave this machine plugged in until it is serviced. If this is a KHMS155LSS, there is a very high probability that you have a keypad short. This defect can cause the machine to start on its own at ANYTIME; while you are on vacation or at work or at night while you are sleeping etc. Contact Whirlpool Customer Service and ask for Safety Dept immediately. They will most likely send A&E (Sears) out to fix it. Although they will fix the problem, if the keypad fails again, the underlying logic self start defect is still present. You should be under warranty if it is above model. Please be polite, insistent, but polite. With KitchenAid's pathetic quality in recent years, their customer service reps get more then an earful. Also, please go to the Consumer Product Safety Commision website at www.cpsc.gov and post a Report Unsafe Products report. This will help get this model recalled before someone loses their home or life. I almost had a fire this past Monday, Labor Day, 9/7/09 when my machine self started at 3 AM with a package of bacon left in it to thaw at room temp for the morning. What a smokey mess. Chinese made garbage. Shame on Whirlpool. Long live Hobart!, please buy back KitchenAid and bring back the lost quality.

SOURCE: KitchenAid Wall and Microwave Oven Combo - KEMS308SSS

After using the microwave for a month, the amount of time to heat has increased significantly. For example, 1 cup water now takes 3 minutes to reach 158 deg and 4 min-40 sec to reach boiling (212 deg)
This model KEMS308SSS02 was installed in July 2008 in a new condo. It was never used until Feb. 2011 when we moved in as the first owners.
Any advice would be appreciated.

KitchenAid microwave oven model # KMHS120ESS-0 When you open the door the light doesn't always come on and you can't get the microwave oven to start because it thinks the door is open.


You either have an intermittent or defective door switch, or the latch assembly is not activating the switches properly.

Kitchenaid khms155lss4 microwave combo went dead what fuse should i check frist


Check to make sure you are getting power to the receptical, plug a lamp to confirm. Next unplug microwave oven and remove top, "several screws" now look inside where the keypad is, follow the wiring to the circuit board, there should be a small glass or ceramic fuse clipped in, before you take it out discharge silver rectangular capacitor with a screwdriver across the points to make sure all voltage is removed. Now unclip the fuse and test, if open replace with the same current rating, if no change I recommend a technician to take it further. Please remember there is extreme high voltage when unit is plugged in and running making it lethal, put the top back on for safety sake.

You can try to take the unit down and open the cage. Look at the door safety switches and see if they also popped out of place. She might have permanently damaged the door. But don't panic just try what I just explained. Turn off all power first at the breakers.

Where is the fuse located on a kitchaid microwave khms155l


It is located behind the key panel. UNPLUG THE UNIT FIRST.
Remove top grill (2 sinked screws on top)
Now remove the single screw on top of the key panel. Barefully slide out the keypad up and out. The smart people of kitchenaid put the dang fuse jammed between the fan housing and the right wall. Remove the entire bottom plate that holds the lights and such... I think 8 screws. Now remove 2 screws that hold down the fan housing. Now you going to have to use a screw driver and some wiggling to move the plastic housing out of the way enough to pop and slide out the fuse and replace. To test you can use a continuity tester and place it between the fuse. There is nothing visible on this fuse (250Volt 20A fuse Fast Acting I think) e.g. you can't see that the fuse is broken or not. Make sure no wires are pinched while putting it all back.

Power went out while cooking. Now light, and fan doesn't work either. Could there be a fuse?


Assuming that you have checked the voltage/breaker at the unit, There is a fuse located behind the user interface. You must exercise caution in this area as there is a high potential for harm due to the capacitor having been energized. If you are not comfortable/experienced handling high voltage, then I would strongly recommend calling for service. Hope this helps... Bill

I have an over the stove kitchenaid microwave w exhaust hood. About 1/2 hour after boiling water on my stove, my microwave comes on. I have unplugged the microwave-----any ideas?


The issue is probably your exhaust fan on your microwave comes on automatically when it detects a certain temperature. Mine does this as well but will turn off automatically after temperature goes down.

JVM1850BH02 Microwave completely shut down, not working after...


The extreme heat has opened up one of the thermostats / thermal cutouts (TCOs) in the oven.

If it was the bottom TCO or magnetron TCO, you should be able to access them by just removing the control panel.

But if it's the one on top of the cavity, the oven will have to come out of the wall, then you need to pull of the outer cover..

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

You should locate and look this over first.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can usually 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.

It sounds like there may be a blown fuse. The back of the mw oven will have to be removed to check. Some ovens only have a thermal fuse and not a traditional glass fuse. If that is the case you should call a technician to repair it unless you know how to use a soldering iron.
