Question about KitchenAid KBHC109J Convection/Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Microwave/Convection Oven has mind of its own: turns to Crisp mode on its own.

I have a KitchenAid built-in high speed microwave/convection oven. All of a sudden, and on its own, the oven's display panel shows the "crisp" function and starts beeping, as if I pressed that button. We hit cancel; the clock comes back on; then it goes to the Crisp mode again, with lots of beeps. Had to flip the breaker to stop it; came back on did the same. For now, we've just hit the breaker to turn it off. Is this a touchpad defect? Can those be replaced, if it is?

Yes this is a touchpad issue. As you have noted the crisp button is stuck and this is the cause of this. You can try removing the keypad and push up the pressed button. If its jammed then replacing it is the only way.

What is convection cookong


A convection microwave is a combination of a standard microwave oven and a convection oven. It allows food cooked in the convection microwave to be cooked quickly, yet come out browned or crisped as in a convection oven. However, most cakes cannot be baked in a microwave oven - only those without an open grain structure, such as brownies. There are microwaves which contain electric browning baking elements. A true convection microwave has a high velocity forced air fan to circulate the hot air uniformly.

My kitchenaid microwave will not heat in microwave mode. In fact the turntable starts and stops and the display blinks intermittenly. In convection oven mode everything works fine - It heats, turntabl


The magnetron is the main part that gives out microwaves to heat the food. As the convection bit is working this points towards the microwave bits.
The magnetron has a main diode, fuse and transformer to run the microwave bit, any of these could be faulty. A word of warning though, there are extremely high voltages inside microwaves, even when unplugged in the main capacitor. Also to repair this section you will need to be a fully qualified engineer to even order parts for this.
