We have a kitchenaid KBMC140 microwave. It just started beeping for no reason and now none of the controls works. The clock is showing but we even cut the circuit and still nothing. Any ideas?

Just replaced the touchpad in my microwave and the problem is solved. Evidently, the buttons where out over time.

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.

Microwave starts beeping and then locks up. We unplug and when we plug back in works and then when done cooking starts beeping and locks up. The last time I used today I did not reset the clock and it has...


You have a shorting membrane keypad.

NOTE: If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.


So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or at least leave the door open when it's not in use, and of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.

On this model (
KHMS155LSS3), the membrane keypad comes on the complete control panel frame assembly.

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame. That is a simple do-it-yourself job.

It is part number 8205018 and you can get it from the Pros here for $108.80.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

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.

Then you unplug the keypad (as per the photo below) and move the circuit board into your frame.

Some connectors on the relays may have a lock:

Hi there, I've just moved into a new apartment and the Samsung Timesaver microwave seemed to be working fine yesterday, but it has been beeping at odd times for no reason. I turned the power off to stop...


Hi, this is usually a bad touchpad. The way to tell for sure is to kill power to the unit, take the control panel down and unplug the ribbon connector that connects touchpanel to the clock. Put it back together and reapply power. The clock will just sit there blinking and, obviously, the buttons won't work, either. if the beeping stops, then the touch panel is bad. And If it still beeps, then you have a bad clock.

Burned out bulb on Kitchen Aid Microwave Model KBMC140


You will need to remove the oven from the wall and remove the outer cover.

If for some reason you don't have yours, you can download your owner's manual and installation instructions free from this page.

You can also find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

These models use halogen lamps. You must not touch halogen types with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

You should be able to get one from a home center or local appliance parts store.

If you order it online (from the link above) it is part # 4375348.

Microwave/Convection Oven has mind of its own: turns to Crisp mode on its own.


Yes this is a touchpad issue. As you have noted the crisp button is stuck and this is the cause of this. You can try removing the keypad and push up the pressed button. If its jammed then replacing it is the only way.

I have a Kitchenaid Microwave model KHMS155LSS-2. The microwave will begin beeping (when not in use) and the clock will then flash to indicate it needs to be set. However, it will not allow me to reset it....


F2 on a Kitchenaid microwave means you have a shorted keypad.

You have a failed keypad.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

You can usually 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.

If you would like to have us do this for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

MICROWAVE CONTROL


The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.
