Question about KitchenAid KHMS2040BSS Stainless Steel Microwave Hood Combination Oven - KHMS2040BSS
Previous microwave cooked items like pizza more evenly. If I leave frozen items like pizza/stouffer's mac and cheese in long enough to heat center, the edges are burned.
You may find the old unit was lower watts so took longer & cooked/heated better all the way through. a way to fix this is lower temp settings or pause and stir the food to help heat it up more even.

SOURCE: Stopped heating food
usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount
(which are pretty simple problems to fix) or occasionally a problem on
the control panel.
Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.
There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.
The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.
Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.
One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.
