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

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: How do you replace the fuse in a microwave oven.

Be sure the oven is unplugged or the breaker is off.

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.

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.

If you don't find yours, or if you want to look at it without disassembling the oven, you can download it here.

You can also find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

Let us know if we can help further.

SOURCE: Burned out bulb on Kitchen Aid Microwave Model KBMC140

You will need to remove the oven from the wall and remove the outer cover.

If for some reason you don't have yours, you can download your owner's manual and installation instructions free from this page.

You can also find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

These models use halogen lamps. You must not touch halogen types with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

You should be able to get one from a home center or local appliance parts store.

If you order it online (from the link above) it is part # 4375348.

SOURCE: kitchen aid microwave model# khms 147 hss-1 runs but doesnt heat

Your problem is your mag tube (Magnatron) you can go to www.partsselect.com and your part number is PS2352604. Their price is $123.44. I work on micro waves myself and have found that if one isn't a built in over the stove like yours, they are not worth repairing because you can buy one cheaper. If this unit is not real old and you can replace this parts yourself it might be worth fixing bit if you are going to have it repaired, it might be cheaper to replace it. Good luck.

P.S. If you open this unit up. Make sure you bleed the capacitor off, this is one that will knock the _ _ _ out of you if you ground it by touching it. Bleed it by using screw driver to short capacitor to ground or case.

SOURCE: How to replace light bulb

Hello, W/D here.

Sorry it took so long to get back to you, the internet crashed, and I had to look at a few things, just to be sure.
It turns out that your oven lamp replacement is very close to an Advantium lamp replacement.
You have to remove the microwave from the wall cabinet, and remove the sheet metal surround. Then, you can access the bulb for replacement. The part # for the bulb is # 4375348 (whirlpool). These are available at Lowe's, H/Depot, or any appliance parts supply store.

I have an Advantium, and after two replacements, I cut a hole in the sheet metal, and fitted a metal "peep-hole" somewhat larger than I needed to get to the screws holding the bulb, and I screwed the cover plate down to the sheet metal. The result was that I wound up being able to slide the microwave out about 6" and change the bulb as opposed to having to remove the entire microwave from the cabinet holding it.
Hope that this is just what you needed.
Respectfully yours, --W/D--
Please feel free to rate this solution! Thanks.

Kitchen Aid microwave KHMS105EWH-0: I started to heat a cup of coffee, it momentarily interrupted power to the kitchen, fluorescent lamps went out, then slowly came back on. More below.


Because of the loud snap you are hearing, my guess is you have something shorting out in the high voltage section of the microwave. I'm surprised it is not blowing the internal microwave fuse yet. Average repair cost depending of what part it going bad is approximately $150 to $200. Considering the age of your micro my suggestion is put the money towards a new one.

Kitchen aid microwave oven makes louder than usual humming noise and does not heat


That would likely be a shorted high voltage diode or failed magnetron.

Does not heat food means a problem on magnetron tube and fuse blown in high voltage area. Have it replaced and it will heat again.
