SOURCE: kitchenaid model KHHS179LSS Microwave oven handle replacement

There is a pin holding the door on upper right hand corner of the door. Holding the door in the open position, lift up on the door a little and remove the pin. The door will come off. There are two screws on the edges of the door on the end where the handle is located. Remove the screws. Now, Take a slim screw driver, and carefully pry between the inside door panel and the ourside door panel starting at the end where the door handle is. Lift the inside of the door out. The opposite end of the inside door panel will come out last. Believe me, this works. Getting it back together is a little bit different, but it snaps back together without using tools. Just put the inside of the door back by laying it down with the handle side down after you have replaced the handle of course. Now, pushing in on the inside of the door panel starting on the handle side, start with lining up the panel and push gently. It will go back into place much much easier than it comes out.

SOURCE: replace the buttons on a kitchenaid microwave Khhs179lss-5

First, you need to uninstall the microwave (MW) from the cabinet by removing the screws that hold it in place at the top. Open the cabinet doors above the MW to locate the screws.
You will need someone to help you at this point in removing the screws and dropping the MW down. Be sure and unplug the MW before you remove the screws.
Next, you need to take the cover/shell off by locating and removing screws A/R. They are mostly across the back and side bottom.
From there on out, you should be able to methodically find and locate the various fasteners that will get to the button pad.

Khhs179lss touch pad replacement not working


If by "touchpad" you mean the touch screen (LCD assembly), those and their connecting strips are very fragile.
If the screen is not lighting after reinstallation, I would first check to be sure the white 3-wire cable is properly plugged back into the lower power board.
If it is, and everything is connected correctly, then you may have received a defective touch screen (LCD assembly) and would need to return it for replacement.
Again, these units are very delicate and the connectors are finicky.
I have an unedited video that shows you how to remove the LCD assembly. It would be useful in reassembly as well.
It is here:

Touch pad is loose at the top. The upper choices don't respond to touch. The bottom choices will respond. How do you reattach the pad?


I would think that the touch pad will need replacing.

If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers for spare part supplies and Driver downloads as required.

Just Google the manufacturer's name and follow the links. Make certain you are directed to the manufacturer's web site as some search engines direct you to other sites and they charge for the information that is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

Microwave exaust fan starts on its own


There's a humidity sensor in this microwave oven that turns on the fan automatically if it senses an excess amount of humidity (steam from cooking for example) to possibly protect humidity or moisture from building up inside the unit.

My KHHS179LSS-3 will not let you control microwave from touch screen un pluged unit plug back in touch error high fail low fail appears on screen


I was afraid I needed to replace the microcomputer when my KHHS179L touchpad was unresponsive. I was able to use the ADD A MINUTE feature, so I knew the unit worked. There had been a power outage of less than a minute to my home recently (I was unaware of this until I asked the kids if they had done anything to the microwave). I popped around on fixya.com and really didn't find an easy solution-my favorites. I loaded kitchenaid.com and found the answer in the FAQ's. Although the control lock out icon was NOT LIT-apparently, that power surge locked my controls. By holding the stop button for 5 seconds once and then aagain a second time, miraculously, my touchpad was restored> HOORAY!

Touch pad on microwave doesn't work


HI, since this happen before and it suddenly fixed itself, i don't think its major. i recommend checking the ribbons for a tight fit. theses connection ribbons may be lose or partiality separated form the control board, in return, causing this fault. you can accesses the ribbons by removing the backcover of this unit. if the ribbons are in good condition, i recommend replacing the touch pad membrane.

KitchenAid KHHS179lss, fried magnitron?


If your magnetron was shorted, the unit would not heat at all.

The sound of a shorted magnetron is usually a loud hum-- but no or very little smell and no smoke.

Components in the High Voltage section -capacitor, diode- give problems if they short out.
