either the high voltage diode,capacitor,or the magnetron tube is dead shorted,remove the leads off the magnetron tube,but check the diode and capacitor with an ohmmeter to check these for a shorted condition before trying a new fuse,if it builds high voltage then its the mag tube

Hi, concerning your microwave. The wrap around case on this unit has to be removed to get to the light bulb. Be sure the microw. is unplugged. Hope this helps.

The first step is to be sure it's unplugged from the wall outlet. I have critical safety & disassembly info at my site, but in a nutshell: - If it's an over the range design and has a grille across the top, that will have to be removed. It will have one or more screws and/or clips. Then you remove the now visible screw at the top of the control panel frame, then lift up and forward. Don't pull hard on the wires. If you disconnect them, mark them exactly, and look out for locking connectors - don't force them. You can then see the door "hooks" and get the door open. (If it's a counter-top design that's built in, it will need to come out the wall and have the outer cover removed).

Yes, unless a technician may have removed it during a previous service. It should be located behind the controller assembly, sometimes in a small envelope.

At my Web site, I have a video showing you how to remove a typical microwave controller in about 5 minutes.

if you have other questions, please feel free to contact me directly by email through the Web site or at pupista@gmail.com

Yes, it is probably a bad relay. Usually appliance techs just replace the whole control board, because those relays can be hard to find and buy.

Yes, it is most likely a bad relay on the control board.

Hi Jill, what the screen indicates is that the door is not closed
There are a number of internal contacts that have to be closed for the microwave to work
If any of them are wrong, they can give you that information.
Depending on the brand there may be between 2 or 3 contacts in the door area that generate that warning
Indicate brand, model and type of equipment you are commenting on, in order to find the best possible solution
I wait your answer
Regards Franco Dosil

Hola Jill, lo que te indica la pantalla es que la puerta no esta cerrada
Hay una serie de contactos internos que tienen que estar cerrados para que el microondas funcione
Si alguno de ellos esta mal puede darte esa informacion
Derpendiendo de la marca pueda haber entre 2 o 3 contactos en la zona de la puerta que generan ese aviso
Indica marca, modelo y tipo de equipo del que estas comentando, para poder encontrar la mejor soluci?n posible
Espero tu respuesta
Saludos Franco Dosil

There are interlocks and micro-switches to prevent accidental running with the door open. The issue with the lock is preventing operation. You need to have it professionally serviced.

For the KitchenAid microwave, model: KHMS2050SSS2 I found that i did not have to remove the screw. what i did was loosen the screw as much as it would go before getting tight again.(hard to screw) then on the bottom end of the door hinge (lying on its side) i pryed the bottom hinge off its mount. (with flat head screwdriver) from there i was able to get at the screws to separate the black surrounding stuff from the outside door... then finally i could get inside to get at the door panel controls. I noticed a whole bunch of condensation and on the back of the touch panel (electrical board).. i will replace that part as I think that is the culprit as to why the keys get pressed randomly, beeping randomly and wonkiness :)
