The clicking sound would probably be a realy on the Circuit board. Do you have it set on Full power?? If it is set on a lower power setting the relays will open and close to try to regulate the cook power.

"F6" on a Whirlpool microwave means you have a shorted cook relay on your control board, which I can repair. Details here.

On many models you can open the door all the way and gently lift it off.

Otherwise, you have to do some disassembly.

The support page for your model, with manuals, is here.

A fridge that is still working after 13 years has done well. Try defrosting it from time to time.

KITCHENAID are a budget make despite what you paid. it is better to buy a company that specialises in microwave ovens rather that a company that buys cheaply made products in China or Taiwan and badges them. As you know KitchinAid is a company that does all sorts of kitchen gadgets and utensils. Toshiba and Panasonic are the brand leaders. GE are long established.

The problem with yours sounds like a safety interlock problem. Every microwave has about 4 safety switches attached to the door so that it is impossible for the unit to be run with the door open. They are small micro-switches that are adjusted like a hair trigger so that as soon as the door moves, power cuts. If it is the switch, it is a cheap fix, if it is the Magnetron, it isn't, so diagnosis is needed by a reputable company. You can't take it apart as they use security screws because of the dangers of cooking yourself and the high voltages in the capacitor, and poisonous Beryllium in the magnetron. Your call on fixing or buying new.

you may need to remove the top case
{no power empty the glass out etc incase you need to tip it over}

make this test and try again. God bless you
  1. Controller is confusedA power surge or random non-reproducible action of the universe may have resulted in the controller's program ending up in an infinite loop. Pull the plug for a minute or two to reset it.
If the problem persist, the main control board is faulty. God bless you

We see and repair this a lot. The problem is on the controller assembly.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.

Since the circuit boards are no longer available, repair is the only option. Details are here.

The magnetron is bad . The component that generates the frequencies to heat up the food. Require prof. service tech.

Inverter, converter, upverter, diverter :-) ... are you talking about a magnetron?

You cannot say easy and magnetron replacement in the same sentence. Please watch out for the capacitor which, under all circumstances, can cause severe pain/burns and at worst, can kill.

Before you do any of that ... check the door safety interlock switch which is the problem in a BIG majority of instances. Check with a volt/ohm meter. If this switch has failed because you may open the door when the oven is running, everything will operate normally except there is no heat due to the oven thinking the door is open because of the failed $2.99 switch.

Thanks for visiting today.

It of course depends on your full model number, but since you posted under the model KHMS155LSS, I'll assume that's it.

You have to remove the grille across the top and may have to remove the control panel assembly.

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

In this model, there is one fuse (20A) and two thermostats which can be defective, any of which will render the oven dead.

Dead meaning no display, no light when you open the door, and no response when you press a pad on the keypad.

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.

I have a copy in my files if you don't find yours.

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