Question about KitchenAid KHMS155LSS 1000 Watts Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Kitchenaid model:KHMS105B microwave hood combination

Dear sirs,
this unit is 12 years old but always worked fine untill yesterday. when it was turned on it was normal for 5 seconds then it started to make shorting noise and the grease under the unit started to burn, luckily my wife saw able to put it out with no resulting damage.
I was wondering if the grease came in contact with the microwave lamp or the lamp went bad is the problem.
question #1 can this be repaired and Question #2 if the lamp can be replaced (if thats' the problem) and #3 does it pay to replace the unit because of it's age thank you for your help!

Hi alan,

it sounds like the transformer is bad, which makes this easy, time for a new one. 12yrs is a good age for a microwave, average life is about 8-10 yrs!

Powers off immediately after starting


My immediate reaction would be to cut your losses and buy a new unit as sooner or later you will run into a part that is no longer available.

Light, fan and timer work but microwave does not


Microwaves are pretty much a non repair item. It will cost you more to fix than it would to replace.

It sounds like there may be a blown fuse. The back of the mw oven will have to be removed to check. Some ovens only have a thermal fuse and not a traditional glass fuse. If that is the case you should call a technician to repair it unless you know how to use a soldering iron.
