I have a kitchenaid oven # KEBC107KSS03. When I set the temp to 400 the buzzer goes off saying the temp has reached the desired temp, the temp is only 250 and will take another 20-30min to reach 400.

thanks for your reply

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.

How to change light bulb in microwave?


Found this post on another fixya-type site: below is the link..
Here's a repeat of Kai's instructions so you don't have to scroll down. I just replaced mine and it was a snap. Just a few Phillips screws and a few tugs. No need to pull the unit completely out as you can access the bulb after it's about half way. No need to disconnect any wiring harness except pulling the bulb out of its socket. I used the 10w (G4 12V) replacement bulb from Home Depot at $6. The light is a bit brighter but there've been no problems with fuses.


1) Turn off power to the unit
2) Open the lower oven door
3) Remove the side trim screws and pull the trims down and out.
4) Remove 2 screws on the sides of the control panel.
5) Open the Microwave door. Remove the 3 screws on the Air Vent Plastic Cover on top of the microwave. You can then remove the Air Vent Cover by pushing the control panel up and pull out slightly at the bottom.
6) Remove the 4 screws on the Air Vent Plastic Cover on top of the lower oven and remove the Air Vent Cover. (You may have to remove the left under side bracket of the Microwave door temporarily just for the Air Vent Cover to clear the screw of the bracket. Re-secure the side bracket of the Microwave door panel as the front panel may fall)
7) Remove the 2 screws which held the Microwave unit in place behind the Air Vent Cover on step 6.
8) Wiggle the Microwave unit out about half way to expose the light bulb unit on top center
9) Wiring to the Control Panel will prevent you from pulling the Microwave unit out any further. And you don't want to do that as the unit may fall. Space is cramped, but working carefully with pliers you should be able to release the springs which held down the light bulb unit and change the bulb.

This KitchenAid combination wall oven and microwave unit was purchased in 2002. Except for having to replace a fuse in 2004, it worked fine until the microwave started acting up recently. In September...


Good Question. I work on all brands of appliances, and I swear by KitchenAid-Whirlpool appliances. That being said, I do not recommend oven-microwave combinations, because the ovens will last 30 to 40 years, but the microwaves start having major repairs from 6-10 years on. I would bite the bullet and put in a separate Panasonic microwave (with an inverter) and a seperate KitchenAid Oven. You also need to install a 2000 Joule or higher surge protector, for your microwave oven. Panasonic microwave ovens are better than the KitcheAid ovens at this time.
I would suspect that the touch panel-control board failure may have been caused by the repairman, just because the timing is a little too close to the mag repair. No way to tell you for sure, and I myself have had control board failures the same day that we changed a light bulb, so anything is possible. Usually a factory defect is going to show up before 8 years. In the last 4 years in the greater Seattle area, 70 - 80% of our business is from power surges hitting the electonics in the different appliances, so this could also have been what has caused your repairs. On a 240 volt Oven, the only way to protect it from power surges is to have a whole-house surge protector installed on your house electrical panel. You still need to have individual surge protectors, above 2000 joules, for your appliances that are 120 volts. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Need to replace light bulb in kitchen aid microwave


KitchenAid wants $58 for the replacement bulb. I bought it for $1.99 from www.lightbulbsdirect.com and it works just fine. The Item number is Q5G412V. It is a halogen 5-watt, 12-volt bipen G-4. Replacing the bulb requires some dismantling of the microwave. At first I was nervous about removing so many parts to get to the bulb but in the end it really wasn't so bad. The only tool I needed was a Phillips screwdriver. I surfed the net a eventually found instructions left by a friendly Blogger that guided me through the whole process. KitchenAid engineers were so STUPID when they designed this microwave. It takes two hours to replace a bulb that should take 5 minutes. Oddly enough, replacing the bulb in the normal oven below the microwave oven is a piece of cake.

Burnt out light bulb in microwave


well it is an absolute nightmare changing the light bulb in the microwave. you have to basically remove the microwave from the rest of the appliance to get to the light after remove panels and other parts. if you intend on doing this take your time. best solution is to have a repair do it that way if it doesn't work he/she is liable not you. best of luck
