Cool Microwave starts then stops and restarts
Model Number: khms147hwh0   Brand: Kitchen Aid   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have an older Kitchen Aid microwave that mounts above the range. It will run fine and then stop and the light goes out. If I push on the door handle the light will come back on and I can restart it. The two catches on the door itself seem to be ok. I am not sure which parts to replace on the switch side and can not find a good repair manuel?

Mike,

You may not have to change any parts,

It may be as simple as cleaning and adjusting the door switch bracket, so the door switches activate properly.

Here are the instructions for accessing the switch and cam assemblies, so you can make the adjustments.
*** Be very careful, there are several high voltage components inside the control compartment, you could get hurt ***


1. Unplug microwave oven or disconnect
power.
2. You shouldn't need to do this step
3. Remove the two screws from the front air vent, pull forward, and remove the vent from the oven.
4. Remove the top screw from the control panel. Open the oven door, lift the panel, unhook the side latching tabs from the slots, and tilt the panel forward.
3.
To remove the monitor interlock switch:

a) Open the microwave oven door.
b) Place the blade of a standard screwdriver between one of the pins and the
locking tab.
c) While pulling out on the switch, pry up on the locking tab so that it clears the switch.
d) Repeat the previous step for the other pin and locking tab, and slide the switch off the holder pins.
e) Press down on the locking tabs, and disconnect the red and white wires from the switch terminals.
4.
To remove the primary or secondary
interlock switch:

a) Open the microwave oven door.
b) Remove the screw from the front of the chassis for the switch you are removing.
c) Depending on the switch you are removing,rotate the switch holder locking
cam in the direction of the arrow. This will unlock the switch holder from
the chassis.
d) Remove the primary or secondary inter-lock switch holder from the
oven.
