Question about KitchenAid KHMS145KSS Microwave Oven
Unit is only a couple of years old. Worked fine until recently. Displays clock and then randomly turns on reads: PAN and counts down from 3 minutes and then continiously beeps to the point I have to disconnect the unit...Any suggestions. Couldn't find anything in the manaul?
From the owner's manual found here or here:
"Touch PAN HEAT once. Pan will preheat for 3 minutes."
Sounds like it's doing it on its own due to a failing keypad.
If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.
If you would like to have us do this for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.
Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.
We're happy to help you and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
