When heating a liquid in my microwave I forgot to remove the top off the bottle and it of course exploded with such force that the door blew open! NOW IT DOES NOT WORK AT ALL. Is it safe to assume that it will no longer work>

Yeah., the magnatron most likely went bad.
You would probably be investing about half the ammount a new microwave would cost to repair the one you have.

Door open button won't work on KitchenAid microwave model YKCMS135H


Page 3 of the exploded view here shows the door open parts 24510L and 250201 (or 23551B if your full model number is YKCMS135HSS).

What look like part numbers seem to be reference numbers.

For further help you will need to contact Kitchenaid Canada here.

How do i remove the door panel to repair the latch head mechanism


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) that demonstrates how it's done.

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

Microwave blew up after cooking an egg


Yes the internal fuse will have blown. I would also think the door latch switches and monitor switch will also need re adjustment

Fuse in Microwave blew , now starts running when door is opened


You have one or more defective door switches, or the door switch mount is loose or damaged. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

Wasn't heating food ... Now won't turn on.


We have critical safety information, door switch information, and disassembly information at our site. You can access it through our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk The purpose of the middle "monitor" door switch is to blow the fuse if the upper or lower switch gets activated with the door open. So you'll also need a fuse now, certainly. You may have originally just had a bad door switch, but there also may be a problem in the high voltage section. Most typically a bad connection at the magnetron or a bad magnetron. You can find exploded views of the microwave and affordably order parts here http://tinyurl.com/gv383 Or you can order parts from Sears via http://www3.sears.com
