Either the scale has not been removed or the sensing circuit has failed.

From Kitchenaid, signs a coffee maker needs cleaned;

1, Cleaning indicator light comes on (select models)
2. Excessive brew times
3. Gurgling or other unusual noises during the brew cycle.

So ignoring first condition, does it exhibit either of the remaining two?

If yes, then likely remaining scale. Try letting descaling agent set, up to max period stated by mfg, then start clean cycle.

If no, possible sense failure.

I'm sorry to say that it's most likely the magnetron that's shorted out (the high voltage device that produces microwaves). It's usually the case with ovens this old that a compatible replacement won't be available.

There's also the fact that your oven is likely way past it's 'end-of-life' date so even if you could find a replacement, other components will begin to fail as more time passes.

In short, save yourself the money, time, and frustration with a new unit. Good luck!

Can often be caused by ice blocking the cold air path air from the freezer. You may not be able to see the ice buildup but it's likely to be around the evaporator fins and could be due to a blocked ice-melt drain tube.
Probably worth emptying the freezer contents into a chilly bin or well insulated box (to keep it frozen) and leaving switched off with the freezer door open for half a day to let any ice melt, then see it it has started working again. If there is lots of water in the freezer after this you might want to find the drain tube (usually comes out above the compressor motor) and clear it (plastic coated flexible spring line for hanging curtains is good for this).

khms155l-sdpzxnx2wca25pymlghkdstt-2-0.jpg Here's a diagram of the door. On the inside of the door is the frame, #2. This can be removed very carefully with a small flat bladed screwdriver and work slowly around. The frame is held in place with plastic tabs on frame. Once frame is removed, you should see the two screws that hold the handle in place. Good Luck!

Unload the drawers. Pull the drawer all the way out until it stops. Then lift the front of the freezer drawer (a couple of inches), and pull out further (4-6"). The front will then lower to the floor. Lift the back of the drawer upward and slid the entire drawer forward. You may want to protect your floor.
