Question about KitchenAid KCMS185J Microwave Oven
Most probable failure is this VERY expensive part:
This is what controls the Magnetron operation via the relay on the PCB. If the Magnetron is operational without programming it usually is the cause of the problem.
I would recommend that all wiring to the control board be verified before considering replacement of the board. The price of the board to me is off the charts in cost! Not sure what the original purchase cost was but the price of this board would make one consider unit replacement vs component replacement when you add in the cost of the service call.
I am sure this is not what you wanted to hear.
Thanks for using FixYa,
