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.

Got switched off suddenly and all panel lights got off


The main fuse is inside the cabinet near where the power cord enters. When everything goes dead all of a sudden, 99.9% of the time it's the fuse.

I have kitchenaid microwave model 1857 wss it was working perfectly the night before and when in the morning I came to kitchen the microwave looked the it lost its power although I check all of the circut...


SEEING AS HOW YOU USED IT THE NIGHT BEFORE, THE PROBLEM SEEMS TO BE THAT YOU MAY HAVE BLOWN A FUSE OR A THERMAL CUT OUT (TCO) THERE ARE SEVERAL DIFFERENT FUSES IN THIS MICROWAVE. IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN SALVAGING THE MICROWAVE BECAUSE YOU LIKE IT, I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND CALLING A TRAINED PROFESSIONAL TO FIX THIS UNIT BECAUSE THIS UNIT IS HIGH VOLTAGE WHEN IT'S RUNNING AND HAS VERY HIGH POTENTIAL TO KILL YOU. BE VERY SAFE WHILE INSPECTING ANY FUSE FOR CONTINUITY (0OHMS OF RESISTANCE ON YOUR METER.) NOTE THAT SOME THERMOSTATS IN THIS UNIT LOOK LIKE TCOS.

Have a 12 year old kitchenaid Superba stainless steel built in microwave. I suddenly stopped and "door' lights up on display. Door is shut hear clicking by left side may be a latch issue. How do you fix?


Hi - it is 12 yrs old so parts may not be available for it.

If its a door problem, then its really a door latch switch or switches that has failed. Time involved in removing case, then switches then checking them all then finding replacements at ?? cost is uneconomic.
Please consider getting a new machine - probably use less power, have more features and work a darn sight better than this old one.

KitchenAid KHHS179lss, fried magnitron?


If your magnetron was shorted, the unit would not heat at all.

The sound of a shorted magnetron is usually a loud hum-- but no or very little smell and no smoke.

Components in the High Voltage section -capacitor, diode- give problems if they short out.

Khmc107b (not a bt): lost power, won't start again


The most likely causes are an open thermostat on your magnetron or the internal fuse. You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your base model number (without the suffix) here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 The fuse is shown on diagram 5 and the thermostat on the magnetron is on diagram 8. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety and disassembly info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
