Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I have a microwave unit separate from my oven unit. After I replaced the microwave plate with a dinner plate (because it broke) the following happened after a few weeks: The micro wave suddenly did not heat anything, although the dials/buttons work and these buttons on a panel also direct the temperature, etc. of the oven below, which works fine. What could have caused the sudden loss of the micro waves ability to heat? By the way, these are "built ins which came with our home about 5 years ago. You help is appreciated

Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part (such as a shorted diode)

Can you remove the microwave separately without removing the complete oven/microwave unit? KEMS307DWH4 KitchenAid Wall Oven/Microwave combo unit


Hello Richard;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service technician.

Your microwave is in a separate housing than your oven. You need to remove the border stripping holding the micro wave in the wall, then lift up in the front and pull out.

Go into the following website, put in your model number which is on a label after you open the microwave door.

You did not tell me what the problem is. Please advise so I can help you further.

Register sharp product


There was probably a defect in the glass plate. You have had it such a short time, I would return it to the store with your receipt and exchange it.

The microwave in my microwave/wall oven combination broke. The controls for each unit are separate, and I can still use the oven. I am told that I have to replace the entire unit rather than simply...


Please post a new help request with your full model number from the tag on or in the unit, as well as detailed symptoms letting us know exactly what the unit is doing wrong or not doing.

Hi My microwave broked the plate. How I can resolved this ,I need do buy another microwave or they sells plates separately ? And if sells were I can buy?


You can get to buy the plates separately , in fact you can many of them if you can get support from any repair/service shops as many microwaves are scrapped if there is a high estimate.
Make sure you take the center slot of the plate to confirm the fittings.

The renter threw the tray to adapt the microwave to convection oven. I need to know where and how much a new one costs?


Are you talking about the black round pan? I don't think I have any other parts in my Advantium for speed cooking or convection. I occasionally just use an oven safe dinner plate. Sorry I can't help with replacement parts.

We had this problem. It was installed improperly - to recirculate instead of to vent.
