SOURCE: my kitchenaid microwave/convection oven shows "DOOR" on display

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch mount, which are pretty simple problems to fix.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.


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.

If the switch mount is broken, it's usually more economical and safer to add a dab or two of hot glue to the mount to secure the switch. Let it cool for about 30 minutes before using.

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.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, & testing.

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 only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

SOURCE: hi. have a kitchenaid superba dual

Hi jlp140766,

I'd suggest checking the fuse first. To do this you will have to check for a fuse holder on the display area, it would be a circular button piece you can unscrew using a flat screwdriver. If there is none to be found or it is fine, then the thermal cut-out may have gone, which I wouldn't think possible as it is usually triggered by massive heat. To check this, you will have to remove the whole oven, an open it up from the back. Once inside trace the wires to a small boxish piece connected in between 2 wire providing power to the main board. Test if it has continuity with a multimeter. If it does not have continuity, then replace this cut-out with a spare acquired by your nearest appliance spare center.

Hope this helps :-)

If you found this advice helpful, please accept my answer.

I went to the following website but it is not looking good for parts for your microwave. I am guessing from the number of things that are not available anymore, and the very high prices on things that are still available that this must be an old microwave. They might be able to point you in another direction if they do not have your part.

Convection wont work


We could probably help you if you would repost this with the full model number from the tag in the cooking cavity or elsewhere on the oven.
Excellent job on detailing the symptoms though!
Just be sure to include them in your repost, too.

Microwave wont start shows door on display


When it shows a door error and won't start, that's usually a door switch or door switch mount. My help file on door switches is here.

BUT - assuming your model is the KEMS308SSS01,02,03,04, or 05, it is probably the type that has the overdesigned door sensor circuit, as shown in the diagram below:

12_27_2012_8_49_05_pm.jpg

In this case, the other likely culprits (besides the door switch) are the 20A fuse, the 15A fuse, the "cavity TOD ("thermal overload device" - thermal cutout / thermostat) and the magnetron TOD.

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.

It also contains the diagram above.

There's a YouTube video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes. mini_manual_behind_grille_small.jpgdee77f7.jpg

Accessing the oven cavity TOD for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

Door indicator prevents microwave from starting


This is usually an indication of a bad door interlock. Take resistance readings with the power turned off on the primary and secondary interlocks. You will need to remove the control panel to access them. There should be a wiring diagram somewhere inside the control panel to assist you in determining if the interlock is normally OPEN, or normally CLOSED. As you open and close the door the interlock should change states. Additionally, double all your connectors to make sure they are plugged in correctly. I had a similar problem once and it turned out to be a loose connection on one of the interlocks. I hope this helps you.
