Question about KitchenAid KHMS155LSS 1000 Watts Microwave Oven

1 Answer

My Kitchenaid KHMS 155LSS-4 makes a clicking noise upon starting for about three seconds, then will act like its heating but will not heat. The noise repeats itself every 20 seconds. It did this when I first got it, then stopped, and now has started again 2 years later. It has to be some sort of setting?

Is there any fault code displayed on the display, such as F6?

I would first suggest checking the door switches and mounts.

If they are good, I would suspect the control board. We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so with a one-year guarantee.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

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.

If you don't find yours, or if you want to look at it without disassembling the oven, you can download it here.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

Lights on, timer going, but not heating, no whirring sound & turntable not turning


KITCHENAID are a budget make despite what you paid. it is better to buy a company that specialises in microwave ovens rather that a company that buys cheaply made products in China or Taiwan and badges them. As you know KitchinAid is a company that does all sorts of kitchen gadgets and utensils. Toshiba and Panasonic are the brand leaders. GE are long established.

The problem with yours sounds like a safety interlock problem. Every microwave has about 4 safety switches attached to the door so that it is impossible for the unit to be run with the door open. They are small micro-switches that are adjusted like a hair trigger so that as soon as the door moves, power cuts. If it is the switch, it is a cheap fix, if it is the Magnetron, it isn't, so diagnosis is needed by a reputable company. You can't take it apart as they use security screws because of the dangers of cooking yourself and the high voltages in the capacitor, and poisonous Beryllium in the magnetron. Your call on fixing or buying new.

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.

KitchenAid KCMS1555RSS stopped heating. Everthing else works, full display works, time counts down, turntable rotates, light comes on, etc. but no heat. makes loud hum. Magnatron? Cost to replace? Unit is...


If it is making a loud noise, check the diode and magnetron for damage.
BEWARE OF LETHAL VOLTAGES!
The fault may be just the diode and a reasonable cost will be involved. If it is the magnetron, depending upon where you purchase one from will command the price.
Hope that helps.
