Question about KitchenAid KBMS1454R Microwave Oven
RE: clock flickers and it shuts off and comes back on while trying to cooking things. it does this repeatedly
RE: while running it turns on, off, on........off....on, off. It does heat things, but takes longer, obviously, so I don't think its the magnetron tube being that it does heat. The display blinks a little bit also. Have 12 kids and NEED a working microwave!!!! Any help? Thanks SO much!- bcdkbbgbw
Had Kitchenaid repair look at it and they said cavity thermostat..replaced it, worked fine. 4 months later...same problem!!

Your magnetron is leaking and needs to be replaced.

Tips for a great answer:
If the microwave runs for a few seconds and then shuts off, a door switch might have failed intermittently. Check each of the door switches for any signs of overheating, arcing, or burning. Also check each of them for continuity. Replace any of the switches that is visibly damaged or that only has continuity intermittently
the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the touchpad and
control panel might be defective. There are several other components
that can cause this problem, be sure to check any other components
before replacing this board.
the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the touchpad might be
at fault. This is not common. Generally speaking, if the microwave
display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but
some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.
the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the thermostat might
be defective. Watch our video on testing thermostat
