Question about Microwave Ovens
I'm not familiar with the particular model, but having had a look at the Kitchen Aid website, it would appear that the KMCS1555 series are countertop models, and all appear to have the oven controls on the right-hand side. Is this how your is?
If this is the case, then that is where I would expect to find the magnetron. It is unlikely to be on the other side as the housing does not appear to be big enough to accomodate it.
As for it being under a panel, that is exactly where I would expect to find it. The microwaves cannnot pass through the metal of the oven compartment, so through the plastic panel is the way they get in.
This is what a typical magnetron in a domestic oven looks like:
(Although yours might look different, the clues are the cooling fins and the high-voltage connection)
You might want to have a look inside yourself and see if this is what is behind the panel.
