The door handles on most appliances, like outside cars & truck handles, are secured with screws from inside the door.
You will need to take the door completely apart to tighten the screws. This may be a very hard job, as it needs to be reassembled as well. God bless your efforts.

Sounds like you have one or more faulty micro-switches for the door. They are not expensive to get, but your service center will likely charge you a lot to fix it. If you are handy, you can pull the case off and replace them yourself.

It may be what I call the "overdesigned door circuit," as shown in the attached drawing.

Could be an open internal fuse

Erratic behavior sometimes occurs when microwaves are not plugged into grounded outlets. Make sure it is actually grounded. If so, you might have a defective control panel.

The magnetron is supposed to read nearly zero ohms across the two terminals. You are measuring the resistance of the filiament/heater/cathode of the tube. Activity in the magnetron occurs when the heated electrons are emitted from the cathode, pass through the magnetic field, swirl about, bounce in and out of indentations (vanes) in the tube, and finally land on the plate (antenna). The resistance from the cathode to the plate should be infinite. If not, you probably have a bad tube. Or, if there is continuity between the heater and the case, then you have a shorted tube.

What eventually happens to most vacuum tubes is that the cathode (filiament in this case) becomes coated with a material which inhibits the launching of electrons into the tube. When the flow becomes too low, oscillation ceases, and you have no microwave output. Sometimes they reach the threshold, but do no cross over quickly. Then you have a magnetron that is intermittent for a while.

It may be the oil in the popcorn---do you own one of the covers that go inside to cover so food does not splatter?

KitchenAid... | Answered on May 18, 2016


Look for a small cover on the outside of the cabinet in the place where the bulb is. They are usually secured with a single *****. It is the only part of a microwave oven that is consumer serviceable! Remove the cover and unscrew the bulb, replace and refix the cover.

your manual is here but doesn't mention the bulb

I have never heard of that happening before. I think you need to ask Kitchenaid direct. Once the machine is off and dead, it should stay quiet until you press a button or open the door.

The door handle can easily be replaced on MOST microwave ovens by removing the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to access and replace the door handle:


http://www.fixya.com/support/r3696942-microwave_oven_door_handle_replacement


The average cost for a replacement handle usually runs about $20 - $40. Replacements may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided.

The part number for the model number you provided varies depending on color, so make sure you order the correct one for your oven. You can view an exploded view of your microwave door here:

The door handle is a simple repair that can be done with the door in place, or with the door removed. You do not have to uninstall the oven if this is an over the range model.


If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you
