Is the warranty still valid?
Is there a recall on the model you have?

Typically the problem you describe is a problem with the motor brushes or you were mixing more material than the mixer was designed to mix and the internal thermal link failed.
The mixer is too young to develop this problem without abuse of a material flaw.
If there is no recall on it and the warranty has expired your best bet is to buy a new mixer. Repair cost will typically exceed the cost of a new on if it was a cheap model costing less than $50.00.

How to make a cake in koryo microwave oven KMC2323


Pinched this off the internet . Method Baking a Whole Cake in the Microwave.
  1. 1 Mix your cake batter. In a large bowl, combine 3/4 cup softened butter or margarine with 3/4 cup sugar and 2/3 cup flour. Stir together with a spoon or rubber spatula.
    • You can use regular flour if you don't have self-rising, but you cake will end up more like a brownie in texture.
  2. 2 Add in the rest of your ingredients. Pour in 3 tablespoons of milk. Crack in 3 medium eggs, and add 1 teaspoon of baking powder and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
    • You can use whole, fat free, 2%, or whatever type of milk you prefer.
  3. 12Edit step 3 Flavor your cake. For a chocolate cake, add 1/3 cup cocoa powder. For a vanilla cake, add another teaspoon of vanilla extract.
  4. 13Edit step 4 Mix together. Stir well with a fork or use an electric mixer to mix for about 4-5 minutes or until smooth. If you have a food processor, you can also add all of your ingredients to the food processor for about 60 seconds to mix instead.
  5. 5 Spoon your cake batter into a microwave safe dish. This is very important! Never use a metal baking pan for microwave baking.
    • A shallow dish will probably give you the best results.
  6. 6 Bake your cake. Cook your cake in the microwave for 3-4 minutes on full power. The cake will bubble and puff in the microwave just as it would in the oven, and just as it starts to set (it'll still be jiggly), it's done.[2]
    • Check to see if your cake is baked by sticking a toothpick straight down into the center. Your toothpick should come out clean. If there is gooey cake reside on the toothpick, put your cake back in the microwave and cook it in 1 minute increments until done.
    • Take care not to overcook. If you microwave your cake for too long, it will dry out.

After 5 years of service, there could have been a magnetron failure but the door interlock (latch) could have failed which would acccount for the turntable failure.

I have GE Profile microwave model PVM1870SM1SS and last week while running, suddently it shut off. There is no power, display buttons and stopped running. Please advise.


From the description a major part has failed, the magnetron is suspect because it suddenly shut down in cycle, if the unit is less than 7 years old it probably has a inverter board and tends to fail, also there is the possibility the keypad control board has stopped working. The microwave in my opinion is worth getting checked out and repaired, but it will be expensive.

it's possible the brushes on the motor are burned out. Are there 2 screw holes on the sides? You should have one on either side that look like a flathead screwdriver would fit in them? If so, inside those chambers are the brushes and springs for your motor. You can try replacing them. You should be able to order replacement brushes based on your model number(found on the bottom of your mixer). Let me know if that helps.

Have a 12 year old kitchenaid Superba stainless steel built in microwave. I suddenly stopped and "door' lights up on display. Door is shut hear clicking by left side may be a latch issue. How do you fix?


Hi - it is 12 yrs old so parts may not be available for it.

If its a door problem, then its really a door latch switch or switches that has failed. Time involved in removing case, then switches then checking them all then finding replacements at ?? cost is uneconomic.
Please consider getting a new machine - probably use less power, have more features and work a darn sight better than this old one.
