That model should be KHMS2050SS0, KHMS2050SS1, or KHMS2050SS2, I think.

We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid with a one year guarantee.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan, cooling fan, turntable, and/or inside light operation, too.

Details of our service are at our Web site.

Feel free to contact me directly with your brand, full model number and symptoms for more information.

Got switched off suddenly and all panel lights got off

The main fuse is inside the cabinet near where the power cord enters. When everything goes dead all of a sudden, 99.9% of the time it's the fuse.

Everything works on the microwave, the fan, the lights, the clock except it will not cook. You press start and it runs for a split second then cuts off. If you press popcorn it says error door open.

It sounds like a fuse. With the door fuse blown it will cause the microwave to not operate all all. It is a small thing to swap over. Its a bit like a car fuse. There will be a few different ones but all have a different purpose. Not sure if you are handy or a local electrical handyman can do the job.

Need to replace door handle for Kitchenaid over-the-range microwave, Model: KHMS2050SSS - 0

You usually get better search results by leaving off any dashes or spaces in a model number.
Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screw(s) you need to remove.
Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

In some cases, you then have to gently rotate the handle to unlock it.

You can find helpful literature and exploded view diagrams with part numbers here and you can order parts from the Pros here.

A brand new KHMS2050SS operates very noisy even on a lowest vent setting. A technician came and replaced a blow motor, did not help. When I was checking it in the store the vent worked very quietly.

i bet the store was a very big room? so the sound it makes was lost in all the empty space,,
your kitchen its not nothing like as big so the noise sounds like a jet engine runing over head! and i bet its in a very tight hole in the wall too,
