Question about KitchenAid KHHS179LSS Convection / Microwave Oven
Hey guys....our kitchenaid microwave will shut off automatically about 5 sec after pushing "add minute".....beeps with a morse code like pattern, then magically turns back on. Tonight....same thing happened, but instead of turning back on - the display showed a little man jumping around with the words "no main"..... I had to unplug for a few minutes - then it worked again when I plugged it back in. What's going on???
It sounds like you may have a loose fuse holder or an intermittent part such as one of the thermostats, such as the one mounted on the magnetron.
One thing to try is to cook on the lowest power setting or defrost to see if it runs longer or fails more quickly.
If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.
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.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
