When the fuse blows in the microwave oven, it is often caused by a bad door switch. Sometimes food build up will clog it, or becomes defective, the only way to fix it is have it replaced.

Error code F2


Per the tech sheets (page 8), "F2" error code means "Keyboard failure". Recommended by the manufacturer to replace the touch panel first and, if it would not solve the problem, then the control board has to be replaced too. Not the best recommendation but we have to follow it.

- The part number for the touch panel (aka a membrane switch) is AP3130765

- The part number for the control board AP3130764

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.

I have kitchenaid microwave model 1857 wss it was working perfectly the night before and when in the morning I came to kitchen the microwave looked the it lost its power although I check all of the circut...


SEEING AS HOW YOU USED IT THE NIGHT BEFORE, THE PROBLEM SEEMS TO BE THAT YOU MAY HAVE BLOWN A FUSE OR A THERMAL CUT OUT (TCO) THERE ARE SEVERAL DIFFERENT FUSES IN THIS MICROWAVE. IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN SALVAGING THE MICROWAVE BECAUSE YOU LIKE IT, I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND CALLING A TRAINED PROFESSIONAL TO FIX THIS UNIT BECAUSE THIS UNIT IS HIGH VOLTAGE WHEN IT'S RUNNING AND HAS VERY HIGH POTENTIAL TO KILL YOU. BE VERY SAFE WHILE INSPECTING ANY FUSE FOR CONTINUITY (0OHMS OF RESISTANCE ON YOUR METER.) NOTE THAT SOME THERMOSTATS IN THIS UNIT LOOK LIKE TCOS.

I have kitchen aid microwave modelkcms185jss starts runs fine but does not heat food at all.


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.
I hope I answer your problem.

My microwave oven keeps tripping the circuit breaker.i replaced the outlet that it plugs into but it still trips it. is there an internal fuse in the oven that may be bad?


If a fuse inside had blown, that would definitely reduce the current flow rather than trip the breaker.
I have replaced several breakers over the years; they no longer last forever.
Try your Amana on a different circuit, not in the kitchen; if that other circuit likes the oven, the breaker is bad. If the alternate circuit breaker also trips, then you have not a blown fuse in the Amana but rather a shorted component inside and repairing the oven will likely cost about the same as replacing it.

Dead microwave!


Hi Kevin

If your microwave oven doesn't seem to work at all, check these:
Fuses Usually, when your microwave oven doesn't work it all, the internal fuse (thermal fuse) is blown. This fuse protects both you and the oven. When it blows, you need to have a qualified appliance repair technician replace it.

Door switch If the fuse isn't the problem, check the door hooks and the door-release button. When these are broken, the door switch doesn't activate, so the oven can't work.

If still you are unable to diagnose the issue then it is recommended to call a local repair center for this to get fixed as Microwave usually have high voltage even when it is turned off.

Please do rate the solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
