Question about KitchenAid Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

None of the control panel works. I used the microwave without difficulty and then about 5 minutes later opened the oven and the display froze and none of the control buttons work or will turn on. The display contains two digital undefinable squiggles on each end and two 7s in the middle.

Kenmore microwave oven doesn't heat food. I had


Make sure that the program controller is working if not check power - step down supply, the pads are responding- if not faulty pads- or the door switches, if the switch contact are not good then it will not trigger the processor to switch on the waveguides. If the lights or fan work without any display or action of program being triggered to start then it can be a possible fault on the main board or the processor. Sometimes insect secretion can short the board and display panel and so the processor can work in such an erratic manner. If so clean, solder and reset the board. Now identify the parts by clicking this link: http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/microwave/a/5/141/identifying-microwave-parts.html

If there is no heating please do not switch on unless you have confirmed the fault. It is possible that the Magnetron is faulty, the temperature cut off is faulty or the main capacitor is short. It is also quite possible that insect can get into the oven and create soft spots. When you switch on these will create a short and make the voltage jump and in the long run damage the magnetron. Check this link to know how a microwave works:

http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/microwave/a/5/1443/how-a-microwave-oven-works.html

So Remove cover after disconnecting , check for dirt/moisture in the cabin, if so wipe clean and dry, check the magnetron and area clean and use an jet air to clean off. Check the wave guide covers, if food had deposited
then it must be checked or replaced. See link:
http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/microwave/a/5/1146/how-to-replace-a-microwave-guide-cover.html

Now keeping clear of the microwave, switch on; use a cup of water inside to test.
If you notice any sparks shut off as the magnetron or the main HT capacitor can be faulty. replace with same type.
If there is heating without any issues, you can use the microwave safely

Ge microwave stopped working and gave a sensor error message. Any ideas


On GE models, "SENSOR ERROR" appears on the display when:
  • Using the sensor feature, the door was opened before steam could be detected. Do not open the door until stream is sensed and time is shown counting down on the display.
  • Steam was not detected in the maximum amount of time. Use Time Cook to heat for more time.
  • The humidity sensor (gas sensor) has failed.
Maybe the controller is "scrambled" and a hard reset will fix it.

Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

There should 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.

Microwave turns on & control panel is frozen. F2&PAN error codes


You have a shorting membrane keypad. 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 leave the door open when it's not in use, and please do not leave it running unattended.

On this model, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame which comes with a new keypad.

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame.

That is a simple do-it-yourself job.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number (KHMS155LWH1 without dashes) from the tag on the oven here.

Turbo vent won't turn off


This is usually caused by a shorted hood thermostat or a shorted triac on the control panel circuit board.

The hood thermostat is usually located on the floor of the microwave chassis behind the control panel. It should read "open" or "infinity" on a continuity or multimeter resistance test.

At our site, we now have a video available showing how to remove a typical control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If the hood thermostat is bad, You can order Samsung parts here.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.

Froze and is non-responsive


If it will not CLEAR, You can try Un-Plugging it from the wall, let it dis-charge for 10min., then try . If you still have the problem, I would think your Control Panel has failed. The Control Panel is like an Electronic Controlled Switch with Pre-Programmed sections and Timers. Replacement is the only option. Sorry!

Maytag Over the Range Microwave


Assuming the entire power line from the breaker to the microwave cord is okay, it's almost certainly a bad connection on the circuit board of the control panel assembly. For reference, we repair these from all over the country for $32.50 postpaid.
