Question about KitchenAid KHMS155LSS 1000 Watts Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Where can we get de-installation instructions?

The service contract we have with Kitchenaid requires us to take the microwave down off the wall so that the technician can replace parts. How much does this weigh? We have no instructions to remove it. Could we have an installation manual for this model?

It's likely a failed fuse or TCO (thermal cutout / thermostat)
Yours should have a "mini-manual" (technical sheet) hidden either behind the grille or control panel. It's very helpful in locating and testing components.
There is a video here here showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
Accessing some components (especially the oven cavity thermostat) for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall and take off the outer cover.

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

You can find exploded views and installation instructions here and your can order Kitchenaid parts from The Pros here.

How do you change the bulb in a Kitchenaid microwave Model KBMC140HSS03


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

To replace the light bulb first remove the screws located on the vent grill at the top of the microwave, tilt the grill back and then pull away to remove. After this open the light cover , you have to remove the screws so that you can discard the old light bulb and then replace it with a new one. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I have a kichenaid microwave#khms155lss-4 my son put a stainless steel bowl in it and i dosen't work help its only 3 years old


It's most likely a blown magnetron thermostat, but you should also check the fuse and the oven cavity thermostat.

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.

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

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

Changing microwave light bulb


Check the owner's manual to see if yours is a model which allows access to the lights without pulling it down from the wall.

Accessing the lights on some models will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

Most bulbs can be matched up at hardware stores, home improvement centers, and places like Wal-Mart or even large grocery stores.

Many use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

Kitchenaid microwave bulb


You can download the owner's manual and installation instructions here.

You can also download the parts manual here. It has handy exploded views. The bulb is shown on page 5 and is ref # 75.

You will need these instructions, because to replace the bulb, you will need to pull the microwave down from the wall mount and remove its cover.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

And it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

Once it's out of the wall, the outer cover (wrapper) will need to be removed, just as you'll need to do on a counter top model.

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (such as a T20H type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

If you don't find a replacement locally, check here.

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

Microwave bulb replacement


The oven will need to come down from the wall so the outer cover can be taken off. Then you'll see the light socket(s).

It's recommend due to the weight and awkwardness of the oven that two people do this job.

If you don't still have your installation instructions, you can download them here, but you should use you full model number, as opposed to the base KEM378.

This uses a fairly common halogen bulb, but I'm not sure of the wattage. It should be marked on the bulb or on a tag near the reflector.

You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.
