Hi Joe,
Since 6 gage wire is heavier duty (thicker) than 8 gage, it will be more than sufficient to supply the oven. I'm not an electrician, per se, but have obtained permits to add wiring to additions years ago, so I know some things. The important issue is to check to make sure it meets or exceeds code, for insurance purposes, and you can verify that your wiring meets code by calling the permit people in your area, just to be safe. Any electrical contractor in your area should be able to verify this.
I think you'll be fine.

The power is on to my Kitchen Aid microwave convection oven, but the microwave will not heat up? Any ideas as to how I can fix this?


It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

Lightbulb burned out for microwave model # KHMS 1850SSS-0 Kitchen Aid Where can I purchase a replacement? Thank you, Carrie


Most home improvement stores and even some Walmarts/Chain grocery stores/Ace Hardware carry replacements. You will need to remove the cover from the microwave oven on most models unless your bulb is inside a protective cover inside the actual oven. Take the bulb with you when you go to make certain of a proper match. Be certain to unplug the oven if you need to remove the cover in any case.

Burned out bulb on Kitchen Aid Microwave Model KBMC140


You will need to remove the oven from the wall and remove the outer cover.

If for some reason you don't have yours, you can download your owner's manual and installation instructions free from this page.

You can also find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

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

You should be able to get one from a home center or local appliance parts store.

If you order it online (from the link above) it is part # 4375348.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Code F6, E0, "Communication Error"


Hi. this code represents a key pad or control board malfunction. you will have to make sure the key pad or control panel connectors are connected tightly and securely. If the wires and connectors are secure, the actual control board may be faulty and you will need to replace it at this point.
