KitchenAid Microwave Ovens - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
Would I find the wiring Schematic inside my KitchenAid YKMLS311HBS Microwave?
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 firstname.lastname@example.org

KITCHENAID MICRO/OVEN COMBO, EVERYTHING WORKS (CLOCK, TIMER, LIGHTS, OVEN) EXCEPT THE MICROWAVE. IF I TRY TO USE THE MICROWAVE I GET A "DOOR" MESSAGE DOOR IS CLOSED BUT IT ONLY BEEPS AND SAYS DOOR.
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

Code F6, E0, "Communication Error"
Hi. this code represents a key pad or control board malfunction. you will have to make sure the key pad or control panel connectors are connected tightly and securely. If the wires and connectors are secure, the actual control board may be faulty and you will need to replace it at this point.

Kitchenaid microwave oven KBMC140HSO
I started having the same problem with my KBMC140HSSO. You cannot see the error codes without disassembling the control panel (the codes are on another display that covered by the front panel). After doing so I found the error code to be F2, E3 which is "Key held down too long, or key shorted". I am ordering a replacement keypad and will report back if this fixes the problem.

Need to Replace Door Handle for KitchenAid Over Range Microwave Hood Combo KHMS147KSS
Chances are the door panels separate as shown in the photo I have attached below.
Panel replacement can usually be done without removing the door from the microwave.
In cases where it is felt that door removal is necessary, I recommend detaching the door from the hinges.
I generally do not advise removing the hinges from the microwave.
Whenever the hinges are removed, great care must be taken to put them back in the very same position they were in.
Failure to do so can cause microwave leakage, which can cause risk of skin burns, fire, and disruption of nearby electronic devices.

How do I remove door on KitchenAid microwave YKHMS2050SS-2 in order to replace the CTRL-ELEC control card inside the door?
For the KitchenAid microwave, model:
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 :)
