Door Switch on Kitchenaid Combo Wall Oven

The microwave on my Kitchenaid KEMS377GBS3 combo wall oven won't start, complaining that the microwave door is open. Everything else works. This started happening about the time power was restored after a neighborhood outage, so I suspect the microcomputer board rather than the door microswitch. Question is, how do I disassemble to check the switch and get access to the board? It's not obvious how to do this. Can this be done w/o removing the oven, and is there a repair manual I can get that shows how? Many thanks.

SOURCE: KitchenAid Wall and Microwave Oven Combo - KEMS308SSS

After using the microwave for a month, the amount of time to heat has increased significantly. For example, 1 cup water now takes 3 minutes to reach 158 deg and 4 min-40 sec to reach boiling (212 deg)
This model KEMS308SSS02 was installed in July 2008 in a new condo. It was never used until Feb. 2011 when we moved in as the first owners.
Any advice would be appreciated.

Eecrolux combination wall oven / microwave is in demo mode model# ew30mc65jb


Good Morning Rolf, thanks for your post!

Based off the information you have provided your Electrolux wall oven/microwave combination is stuck in demo mode. The best way to remove demo mode from your wall oven/microwave combo is to hold the oven light button and the on/off keys at the same time and you should be able to toggle in and out of demo mode. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

We put our KitchenAid oven onto self cleaning mode, now the display is blank and the door will not unlock. It has been over 15 hours, and the oven is cool. How do we reset it?


Hello,

Is this a built in wall oven or a freestanding oven/range combo?

If its a wall oven the problem is going to be a high limit thermostat that went out. If it is a older model the high limit t-stat has a red reset button that can be pushed and power will be restored to controls. If it is newer once the high limit goes out it needs to be replaced. Now heres the tricky part on wall ovens, the high limit thermostat is inside control panel and it needs to be taken apart to get to that t-stat and that can be a problem trying to get it pulled out enough to get to control panel with the door being able to open. On that i wish you luck

Thier is also a high limit on the freestanding range its going to behind the back panel and easier to get it since your not dealing with something built into a cabinet

Good Luck,
Gene

I have a Whirlpool double oven GMC305PRS01 when you turn on the oven it appears to me making all the right move IE it goes into pre heat and starts counting down but the elements are not getting hot.

Whirlpool Wall oven/microwave combo unit Door message
Does anyone know where the 15 amp fuse is? I replaced the 20amp fuse and it worked for a minute or two and then I opened the door and I blew my circuit breaker. I reset my circuit breaker, replaced the 20 amp fuse and now all I get is the Door message. I also noticed that it fused the outside switch on the right side of the door so I had to open the switch up and un-fuse it. This is for a whirlpool GMC305PRS01 Wall Oven/microwave combo unit.

Also if anyone could tell me the correct position the wire is supposed to be hooked up on the switches? I had someone help me take the switch out and they unhooked the wires and now we aren't sure how they are supposed to be hooked up. My light on the microwave doesn't work either. Is it possible the bulb blew when the fuse blew?

take the trim off of the microwave and on the top of the oven on the right side all the way in the back there should be a reset button just like a surge protector.

KitchenAid Wall and Microwave Oven Combo - KEMS308SSS


Have had this oven for 8 years. At least three times, usually after using the clean cycle in the main oven, the latch mechanism has broke and the oven door will not open. In March they installed a 'new design' to prevent this. It's seven months later, and it broke again. Has anyone had similar experiences? How did you resolve?

lendebr is right...
Same problem here on combo microwave and convection oven. The hinges are a horribly wimpy design. Jenn air has a replacement part thats helps..but the replacment hinges will do the same thing in very short order. 1 month after I fixed ours my sister in law opened the oven door and let go of the door when it was about 2/3 open and that was all it took to tweak the new hinges so the door doesnt close all the way again. i should have clued in when the girl at Jenn air sent me three sets of replacement hinges. I thought it was a mistake..turns out she knew it wasnt going to fix it permanently.
The moral is that Jenn air appliances are POS and I will not ever buy anything from the again..But I will tell everyone I possibly can not to buy anything from them.
