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.

How do i remove the halogen light in my micowave


I have a similar Kitchen Aid model. The little light inside my unit also went out. I called Kitchen Aid and they scheduled a tech to come out to change it. He said the only way to get to it is to pull the unit out from the wall (it's a built in unit). $150.00 bucks later I had a light for about another year before it burned out too. Needless to say, the heck with it, I don't need the light that bad.

Display panel (right side) on Kitchen Aid microwave reads "Lost Communications Err F6EO." The microwave does not work but the oven below the microwave does. The panel on the left side displays the clock...


The first thing I would do is a hard reset (simply unplugging it for a couple of minutes) if that has not been done already.

Then one would need to retrieve the technical sheet (mini-manual) found behind the control panel assembly.

If you don't find your mini-manual, or if you want to look at it before removing the controller, you can download it here. Just enter your model number from the tag on your unit.

If a reset won't fix it, I would bet there is a loose connection where one of the boards connects to another, or some contamination from grease or steam, etc., at one of those connectors.

A lot of time one can unplug then reconnect the connector, and that will clean it. Or one can unplug the connector and clean the contacts with a soft pencil eraser.
