SOURCE: kenmore elite microwave touch screen stopped working

Same thing happened to us. We just came back from Sears, where we bought another. Just for giggles, my wife suggested unplugging the old one and plugging it back in again. It works now. New one's going back to the store.

SOURCE: G2 touch screen doesn't work any longer

You must remove the vinyl cover from the control panel and wipe down the face underneath it with denatured alcohol. It's pretty tricky depending on your mechanical caliber.
Then clean the inner side of the vinyl cover the same way. Caution don't soak the power unit just dampen a cloth, this goes for the cover also!

SOURCE: my KHHS179LSS-3 will not let you control microwave

I was afraid I needed to replace the microcomputer when my KHHS179L touchpad was unresponsive. I was able to use the ADD A MINUTE feature, so I knew the unit worked. There had been a power outage of less than a minute to my home recently (I was unaware of this until I asked the kids if they had done anything to the microwave). I popped around on fixya.com and really didn't find an easy solution-my favorites. I loaded kitchenaid.com and found the answer in the FAQ's. Although the control lock out icon was NOT LIT-apparently, that power surge locked my controls. By holding the stop button for 5 seconds once and then aagain a second time, miraculously, my touchpad was restored> HOORAY!

KHHS179LSS-3 touch screen has stopped working. When I un-plug it and then plug it back in, I get a "Touch Error" message saying 'Y High Fail 255 95; Y HiLo Pass 255 0; Y Low Fail 255 0; X...


There is no reset other than unplugging the power for a minute then plugging it back in.

If this in under warranty I would contact the manufacturer via the information in your owner's manual for a free repair.

If for some reason you don't still have yours, you can download Kitchenaid / Whirlpool owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

If it's out of warranty, we repair these controllers for $39.95, or you can order an LCD assembly (part number ) from the Pros here or get a refurbished unit from us here.

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

Re: microwave does not heat


Is very unlikely that there could be any other electrical failure since everything else seems to be working.
If you are able to fix it yourself then is way more cheaper just to buy the magnetron.
Click here to find the magnetron.
Before you do any work on this device, please click here to know how to discharge the high voltage capacitor and other safety concerns when working with devices that generate high voltages.
I would say is not worth it to spend more then $100.00 for a 5+ years old microwave.
Good Luck.
