I am replacing the Kitchenaid microwave door KHMS145JBT

I am replacing the door for a Kitchenaid KHMS145JBT over the stove top microwave. I have the replacement. I know the key is not from the screw end but probably has something to do with disengaging the hinges. Help?

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.

SOURCE: Broken torsion spring needs to be replaced

There are indeed two springs that "cross" each other, and they must be both be replaced to ensure full strength.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

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

The issue is probably your exhaust fan on your microwave comes on automatically when it detects a certain temperature. Mine does this as well but will turn off automatically after temperature goes down.

Remove the front panel by removing the screws located on the inside of the door (note hold door inplace, since it is heavy and will fall out after screws removed). Unscrew screws located on bottom of plastic retainer (2 each) Remove tension spring. Note 2 are included right and left. Note color of spring on end, different springs for different door types, stainless, black,beige or white. Replace all in reverse order.

I always recommend that you use the vent fan whenever you're cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls and door panels.

You can try to take the unit down and open the cage. Look at the door safety switches and see if they also popped out of place. She might have permanently damaged the door. But don't panic just try what I just explained. Turn off all power first at the breakers.

Will not turn on says door


There are 3 door switches arond the door that can throw up this error but if the 2 fuses are blown also it will throw up this error. You can ohm out any of the fuses or even the door switches but until you repair them it wont work. I have even found both fuses to be blown. If you are nervous about pulling apart your stove make sure whoever does is very familiar with this line of Kitchenaid. Hopefully this helps.

Rattling coming from top grill on Kitchenaid microwave


the gril at the top (above the door) usually comes off with a couple of screws or just pulls off .. on some you have to take the cabinet apart ..... inside you might find a flat filter put in at a slant .. its often a grease and smell filter that contains activated charcoal .. when it gets clogged then it can rattle around as air tries to get around it .. you can replace it or just leave it out ..
