1996 KitchenAid Microwave Model# KHMS105ESB-0 shuts off periodically

More than 75% we go to use our microwave the power is not on. We have to jostle/slightly bang the control panel to get the power back. When the power does come back the LED reads all eight's   888 88.

First, do not leave this machine plugged in until it is serviced. If this is a KHMS155LSS, there is a very high probability that you have a keypad short. This defect can cause the machine to start on its own at ANYTIME; while you are on vacation or at work or at night while you are sleeping etc. Contact Whirlpool Customer Service and ask for Safety Dept immediately. They will most likely send A&E (Sears) out to fix it. Although they will fix the problem, if the keypad fails again, the underlying logic self start defect is still present. You should be under warranty if it is above model. Please be polite, insistent, but polite. With KitchenAid's pathetic quality in recent years, their customer service reps get more then an earful. Also, please go to the Consumer Product Safety Commision website at and post a Report Unsafe Products report. This will help get this model recalled before someone loses their home or life. I almost had a fire this past Monday, Labor Day, 9/7/09 when my machine self started at 3 AM with a package of bacon left in it to thaw at room temp for the morning. What a smokey mess. Chinese made garbage. Shame on Whirlpool. Long live Hobart!, please buy back KitchenAid and bring back the lost quality.

Fuse blows immediately when start button is pressed

It sounds like the high voltage capacitor.

You first need to be sure the unit is unplugged from the wall.

Assuming the HV cap is shorted, there wouldn't be any need to discharge it (*grin*) but it's good practice. Once you do that, you can remove the leads and ohm it out. That will tell the tale.

If that's not it, then it may be a bad high voltage transformer. *
