Broken Display KCMS145JSS-1

I have a 4-year old KCMS145JSS-1 microwave with a broken display. Some segments work, but most do not. If I remember what time I entered all functions seem to work fine. Do I need a new control panel? Is there a diagram to assist dis/re-assembly? I have done quite a bit of repair work and minor electronics but never on a microwave. Any help you can offer will be appreciated!!

My under cabinet microwave is not working correctly.


The possible reasons are: 1) The high voltage transformer is broken, 2) The magnetron is broken.

For the 1st problem, no power can be applied to the turntable.
For the 2nd problem, the magnetron is broken with no microwave can be issued.

No lights - Acts Like It Has No Power At All


see the diagram and pictorial and proceed with common sense:
1) test the fuse for open or band contact with VOM,see the diagram attached how to do it
2)check the switch door hook or door release button,when they are broken they do not touch the switch, and will NOT start. test for open
see the diagram

Previous homeowner turned off GE Spacesaver 2.0 microwave display and now we can't turn it back on. Tried directions given to press option button 5 times then #1 to turn display back on. Doesn't...


I was not aware you could turn off the display, maybe it is just a bad display and you need to replace the board??!!
Ive been repairing Microwaves for 37 years. i do not remember seeing one where you could just turn off the display.

Sharp microwave 1200 watts keypad showing


Not a complete answer, but may help describe problem: Our R-510B should be the same except for color, and for several years it has intermittently messed up its display. The left side two segments on the units digit won't light up. So a digit 8, without the two vertical bars on the left, comes out as a letter E reversed left to right. Any digit that uses the two left segments (traditionally labelled segments E and F when talking about 7-segment displays) comes out wrong. Every thing else works fine. I can't tell if this is your problem.
This is almost surely a bad contact at the interface between the LCD display panel and the PC board: Typically there is a "squishy" conductive strip that connects them, and I expect grease has gotten in there. If so careful disassembly and cleaning with a mild solvent should fix it. Since we can live with it, and it usually fixes itself in a few weeks, I have not got around to taking it apart.

Broken Microwaive Door


I'm assuming your correct model number is KCMS145JSS? You have a broken "release lever", part number AP3033332. It's reference number 7 on the exploded view diagram found here: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/sect/4/g/4/4g4rya32jj.gif You can order it by part number from Appliance Parts Pros here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 If needed, you can download the owner's manual and installation guide here: http://www.kitchenaid.com/custserv/literature_search_results.jsp?searchTerm=kcms145jss If you need further help, please follow up. I appreciate your rating of this answer.
