Kitchenaid microwave not heat

The Microwave Runs But Does Not Heat Anything I have a Kitchenaid microwave/ convection oven combo Model KEMS308sss000. The microwave top unit runs but does not heat anything. The bottom oven works just fine as well as the convection part of the microwave. Can you tell me what might possible be wrong with the microwave? Also what is the warranty on the unit and the parts? Also, can you suggest parts that we should replace to see if we can get it to work? Thank you! Rena

I'm guessing the model number would be KEMS308GSS0.

In some cases, this is a glitch that can be cured by unplugging it for 1 minutes, then resetting the clock.

In other case, it may be a bad keypad (membrane switch) or control board.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Likely takes a torx wrench or some other special star tool to open it.

Could be a bad relay a bad mag tube or a bad timmer or a bad door switch. Needs to be trouble shooted. You have to get it open and check the fuses and test the voltage on the pri transformer first.

My Kitchenaid combo convection/mw works on convect but has a loud humming and no heat on microwave.


A loud humming noise in microwave mode will usually be a shorted high voltage diode or bad magnetron.

Microwave won't heat for first minute - starts working normally after that.


The magnetron may be defective. You can replace the magnetron, there is no other possibility.

Perhaps the "repairman" should take another look at it. A lot of microwave ovens have an aerial that directs the energy out to the load or food to be heated.
Maybe...maybe not but worth a look behind the waveguide cover I would say.

Does not heat. It would sometimes cook and sometimes not, until it quit cooking altogether


Sounds like the magnetron shorted out. This is the part that heats the food. Unfortunately, this part is almost more cost than a new microwave so I would recommend just getting a new microwave. If you would rather try replacing this part, you can order a new one from repairclinic.com and find one by searching with your model number. Let me know if you need anything else.

Sounds like a classic bad door switch or switch holder.
