36" KitchenAid microwave has been beeping for no reason. It's like someone is going to use it and it changes the display. Happened in the middle of the night. I cleared it, but it keeps happening

Erratic behavior sometimes occurs when microwaves are not plugged into grounded outlets. Make sure it is actually grounded. If so, you might have a defective control panel.

How do I replace bulb in kitchenaid 155LSS microwave

The cover has to come off the microwave to access the bulb. There are several screws around the back and sides. Remove these and the cover should lift off, revealing the bulb. For your own safety, make sure that the microwave has been unplugged from the outlet for several hours before attempting this repair.

What this simply mean is that there has been a lose of wire from wiring connection which have brig up with the door of the oven what you are to do to solve this problem first of all trace the wire connection from the main power supply down to the control panel i.e the control unit .

2).Remove your microwave door will allows you to quickly clean out any accumulated food or grease. This also makes it easy to get to all the crumbs and debris around the door hinges. While you have the door off its hinges, examine the plastic panel and glass window for signs of damage. Make sure you install a replacement door that is designed for your brand of microwave to ensure that it will fit correctly.

jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Instructions and material needed bellow

(Phillips screwdriver (if necessary), Flathead screwdriver or putty knife)
  1. Remove the power cord from the electrical outlet and move your microwave onto a workbench or sturdy table. For cabinet-mounted microwaves, pry off the decorative grills or front panels and remove the mounting screws. You should then be able to slide the microwave out of its mounting bracket.
  2. Open the microwave door and remove the glass tray. Use a flathead screwdriver or putty knife to pry off the plastic cover on the inside of the door. Work around the edge of the glass until the cover slips free.
  3. Remove the door by pulling the mounting pins out of the hinges at the top and bottom. You may need an assistant to steady the door so you can have both hands free to work with the pins.

My kitchenaid microwave


I have the same model in my home only mine is black rather than stainless. The problem you are encountering is most likely due to a fuse that has blown internally in the unit. Before having it looked at be sure you have power to the wall outlet that the microwave is plugged into. The outlet is usually in the cabinet above the microwave, simply unplug the microwave and plug a lamp or other appliance to verify it is 'live'. If the outlet is live the repair for the fuse may be a done from the front if you have a bit of patients and basic knowledge of electricity. I would recomment calling a service company to make all repairs on this paticular unit as it can be very tricky. Let me know I can help further.

No power

No power at all? ... gotta ask, assuming it is a counter top model...if you plug something else into the outlet does it work? That way 'we' know there is power getting to the unit. If something else works in the outlet, (assumng a 2 outlet receptical in the wall) plug the microwave into the same outlet as the other item that worked. If still no power, you probably blew the internal fuse in the microwave.

That said, they are there for a reason, chances are there is another problem in the unit that needs to be fixed. An appliance repair man reently told me they are only expected to live 5 or so years anymore... pitiful....

KitchenAid Microwave Model KhhS179L

First I would be sure the outlet is okay. You could try plugging a lamp into that outlet and wiggling the plug to be sure it's okay.

Otherwise, it may be a bad internal connection causing a power loss, or it has a problem with the keypad or control board.
