I would suspect the fuse, the magnetron's thermal cutout / thermostat, or the oven cavity thermal cutout / thermostat.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If you don't find yours, or if you want to look at it without disassembling the oven, you can download it here (just enter your model number).

Accessing some components (especially the oven cavity thermostat) for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall and take off the outer cover.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download Kitchenaid owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

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.

Advantium readout flashing


I would say it is a sign of trouble.

Not to say that it's catastrophic, but on these models part can be pretty expensive.

Dead microwave


Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

Please write back with your brand and model number if you need further help.
