Question about Microwave Ovens
I need to take down our Kitchen Aid microwave (model KHMS155LWH) which is wall mounted above our stove/oven in order to replace the cabinets. The microwave is still pretty new (3 yrs) so I'd like to reuse it. What is the best way to detach it from the wall plate. I remember it being difficult to get on there when it was installed. I have a wall mounted Whirlpool Microwave Hood Combination Model MH1150XM over my stove and need to take it down to remount higher up to accommodate my new stove

Is there a wall behind where the microwave is to fit?
Most of these ship with a mounting plate and instructions for mounting to the wall. In fact, the wall bracket carries about 1/2 the weight, and the overhead cabinets carry the other half. The plates come with a good set of instructions for how to install.
Whirlpool is sending you to a distributor because they have to watch liability in this litigous world we live in..

You have a shorting
membrane keypad. If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.
So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and please do not leave it running unattended.
On this model, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame which comes with a new keypad.
In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame.
That is a simple do-it-yourself job.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number (KHMS155LWH1 without dashes) from the tag on the oven here.
At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
