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.

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

Get rid of it and buy a new one. This sounds like a dangerous item to continue to use.

Go to Kitchenaid's web site and see if you can order replacement accessories. If not, try contacting their support group. Usually, if you search for:

Make Model replacement parts

you will find web sites that carry the item you seek.

You either have an intermittent or defective door switch, or the latch assembly is not activating the switches properly.

Fixya does not sell replacement indoor touch controls. Try a local appliance parts supplier.
