Question about KitchenAid KBMC140H Convection Microwave Oven

2 Answers

Crisp display The crisp display suddenly showed on my microwave touch pad display, with beeping sounds. Pushing cancel would reset it for a short while. Cycling the circuit breaker for a short while produced the same result. Cycling the CB off for 10-15 min seems to have resolved it, but is this the start of a larger problem?

I am having the same problem with mine also.. doing the exact same thing. They keep replacing the keypad, but the problem keeps surfacing. In fact, did it last night.

Microwave was beeping a single beep once in awhile now nothing happens but the clock still works

A lot of the time when that happens the touch pad is bad and may have a colappsed air pocket on a pad. ( it makes the unit think you are pushing a pad ) The only way to fix it is to replace it (the touch panel) . Did you see any numbers coming up in the display. Like if the 3 pad was bad and making it beep it may have been showing a 3 in the display,. Always possible it could be a bad main board. But most commonly I have found it to be the touch panel. Try to unplug it and then plug it back in and try to set the clock. when you do, try each number pad and see if they all work. See if any feel different.

Lock function reset for model JMV8208BAS

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

The owner's manual is online here and it covers the child lock:

To set the child lock.
Touch and hold
ENTER/START
pad more than 3
seconds. CHILD
LOCK ON will
appear in the display
window with two
beeps.

To cancel the child
lock.
Touch and hold
ENTER/START
pad more than 3
seconds. LOCKED
will disappear and
you hear two beeps.

Ewave panel is on lock

As per the owner's manual:

The oven operation can be locked to prevent the microwave from accidentally being turned on. All oven functions can be locked.

To Set: Touch and hold the CANCEL/OFF Pad for three seconds. The Display shows “LOCKED” and the oven beeps.

To Cancel: Touch and hold the CANCEL/OFF Pad for three seconds. “LOCKED” disappears from the Display and the oven beeps.

If this does not work, then try a hard reset: Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If it still fails, you probably have a problem with the controller.

We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so with a one-year guarantee. It may cost a little more if you need parts, such as a new keypad.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

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

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.

It's displaying "lock" and The keypad is not responding.

1. Touch the "CANCEL" pad. 2. Touch and hold the "0" (zero) pad until the word "LOCK" disappears from the display and a single beep is heard. The microwave is locked the same way. You can download a manual similar to your model here: http://tinyurl.com/vpxss
