I have kitchenaid microwave model 1857 wss it was working perfectly the night before and when in the morning I came to kitchen the microwave looked the it lost its power although I check all of the circut...


SEEING AS HOW YOU USED IT THE NIGHT BEFORE, THE PROBLEM SEEMS TO BE THAT YOU MAY HAVE BLOWN A FUSE OR A THERMAL CUT OUT (TCO) THERE ARE SEVERAL DIFFERENT FUSES IN THIS MICROWAVE. IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN SALVAGING THE MICROWAVE BECAUSE YOU LIKE IT, I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND CALLING A TRAINED PROFESSIONAL TO FIX THIS UNIT BECAUSE THIS UNIT IS HIGH VOLTAGE WHEN IT'S RUNNING AND HAS VERY HIGH POTENTIAL TO KILL YOU. BE VERY SAFE WHILE INSPECTING ANY FUSE FOR CONTINUITY (0OHMS OF RESISTANCE ON YOUR METER.) NOTE THAT SOME THERMOSTATS IN THIS UNIT LOOK LIKE TCOS.

Kitchen aid microwave Kcms185j is arcing on the inside ceiling when popping popcorn, but normal when frying bacon?


It may be the oil in the popcorn---do you own one of the covers that go inside to cover so food does not splatter?

The power is on to my Kitchen Aid microwave convection oven, but the microwave will not heat up? Any ideas as to how I can fix this?


It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

My maytag over the oven microwave just died;


most likely the power supply in the microwave is gone. the microwave die probably it is over the oven. heat from the stove cause the microwave to heat up and cold off more than it is on the counter.
counter microwave has fan and air slot in the rear. it keep the motor and microwave cool, and there nothing else to keep it hot. but the over the oven, the only ventalation is from the top. and with the added heat from the stove top and oven.

Power out on Whirlpool over-the-stove microwave


Yes, There are fuses inside the keyboard panel. I would have to take a look at the manual for the specific model you have to identify the easiest way to check the fuse.
Before you go that far check above the hood and see if you can locate the plug end of the microwave. Most installations have a dedicated receptacle above the exhaust vent and microwave. It is usually a space too small for good storage so most housewives store small items and cookbooks in this space. It is usually the culprit for a microwave suddenly going out without someone placing metal inside the oven and heating it.
Heating a metal object or operating a microwave for an extended time will usually blow the fuse.

Can't pop popcorn well


It's 850 Watts, 0.9 cu ft.

That's enough for popcorn, but a magnetron does lose power once it starts to age.

The figure I've heard is an average life expectancy of 2000 hours for a magnetron.

Two "Band-Aid" suggestions for better exposure and more even heating:

1. Place the popcorn bag on top of an upside-down paper plate.

2. Place the bag off-center instead of dead center. Placing food in the center of the turntable is not as efficient as placing it off-center.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Was using microwave to pop quite a few bags of pop corn to feed birds. Microwave is hot to the top to the touch. lights on the front of the microwave are not lit up, no power. WALL RECEPTCALE is active.


Plug fuse may have blown. Replace that first or test.
Internal temperature trip may have cut out (if present)
Microwave generator (magnatron) may have failed.
Internal power supply may have failed due to moisture.

Very likely this machine is dead.
Save energy - and cash, by feeding birds stale bread and raw seed and corn.
Hopefully the next microwave oven will last longer.

The cost of repair may be more than the cost of replacement. Ask your nearest repair shop how much to replace the microwave unit, and check the power supply.

Sorry I can't offer a quick fix for you.

My microwave has stopped working and switched on suddenly!!


Sounds just like a bad door switch or door switch mount. Probably the upper one. Safety info, disassembly tips, and door switch test and replacement info are all available at our Web site. See http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
