Kitchenaid vented microwave KHHS179LSS-5 surface light is blinking on and off. Started a couple of weeks ago. Thought I was forgetting to turn the light off but realized it was not me. Went to the...


Press the "Off/Clear' button to cancel anything on the display, and reset the microwave. This is a soft reset and will simply get you out of any program you have started. Press it when the cooking complete reminder appears on the display.
Perform a hard reset. Pull the plug out of the wall power supply, and wait a moment. Plug the microwave back into the wall power supply to reset any anomalies with the microwave's memory. You will need to reset the time of day if you perform a hard reset.
Reset the time of day. Press the "Clock" button, and turn the dial to set the hours. Press the dial to enter. Follow the same procedure for the minutes and a.m. or p.m. Press the "Start" button to start the clock. This should help fix the problem.

I need to reset my Kenmore Elite dishwasher but i don't know how.


follow the below instructions:

Unlock your Kenmore dishwasher control panel by pressing and holding the "Heated Dry" button for four seconds.

Press a series of four buttons in quick succession. Press "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" to instruct your Kenmore dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test

Wait for two minutes while your Kenmore dishwasher runs its diagnostic test.

Press the "Cancel/Drain" button once your dishwasher has completed its diagnostic test. This should reset your dishwasher control panel and stop the "Clean" light from blinking repeatedly.
Good luck.

Microwave not heating, but does count down minutes.

Press clear/reset button and hold 5 seconds. If this doesn't work unplug unit or shut off breaker for 10 seconds.

The fuse will either be good or bad. If it blows, the unit will be "dead".

Assuming electrical outlet voltage is low, I would suspect that your magnetron is failing.

The magnetron usually has a warranty of 5-9 years.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:

You can usually find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number here at the Sears parts site.

Microwave power level

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

If you don't have your owner's manual, you can download it free from GE/Hotpoint.

Please reply back if you need more help.

Assuming this is indeed your correct model number, I did not see any reference to the word "MUTE" in the manual! If you don't have the manual, you can download it in PDF format here: If you actually have a different model number, please reply to this post with your correct model. GE/Hotpoint probably directed you to press the "HELP" key and see if there is a useful option in the help menus. I would suggest diconnecting the power from the oven via the cord or breaker for a few minutes, then plugging it back in. Sometimes they sort of get their brains scrambled and neds a good reset. If that doesn't fix it, I would suspect trouble with your control panel. We repair the control panels for $32.50 nationwide, but your take on typical in-home service and replacement costs are pretty accurate. I would wonder if an excessive amount of moisture may have gotten into the controls... That can happen when you boil on the stove top without having the hood / exhaust fan running. It can also occur if one sprays a cleaner directly on the keypad instead of just wiping it with a soft, damp cloth. But that can often be repaired, too. Once you've digested this information, fel fre to post back and we can take it from there.

Shuts off, must reset clock

Sounds like you could have a fauly control circuit. Something like when you press the pad the processor does not interpret the information correctly and resets itself. Or the power going to this circuit is being interupted. It is VERY dangerous to work inside of a microwave. So you could get an estimate from a repair shop. But those control boards are expensive. Do not attempt to repair this yourself. For your own safety.
