Hello & Welcome to FixYa

It means that the door is not closing properly or the door switch has gone bad and needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Kitchen aide microwave fan won't turn off.


Check the door switches to make sure all contacts are opening and closing. You could also have a power relay with the contacts stuck in the closed position.

Why won't my interior microwave light turn off and my microwave won't start?


It sounds to me that your door switches aren't working.Your oven is protected by a couple of switches that engage when you open or close the door.They control a couple of safety features and also your interior light.One of them seems defective.

Hi!! My Kitchen Aid superba microwave oven says door and the door seems to work okay. Any suggestions?


the micro switch is probably faulty which tells the machine the door is actually closed or open. this would need replacing which means pulling the unit apart.
hope this helps

Microwave not heating every time...


You seem to be having a problem with the interlock device. when you close the microwave door it is supposed to hit a series of 3 switches to tell the microwave every thing is safe and able to run. you may want to take the control panel off and make sure those switches are ok. usually out of the 3 switches top and bottom should be open middle should be closed. you could check with the continuity side of your electric meter.

Let me know if you have any questions before rating me.

The door of my Kitchen Aid Microwave YKCMS1555RSS wouldn't open because the plastic prods that push open the latch had worn down. The oven was otherwise functional. I inserted some plastic knobs to extend...


The door latch heads (prods) are not making proper contact with the door switches, so it will not work right.

The latch heads need to be replaced.
