After researching online, I found that I needed the turntable drive coupling, part#PS993087. when I went to your site it showed the same part but the part number had changed but said it would fit my microwave. Well, I was really surprised and happy when the part I received 3 days after I placed the order, with normal shipping,fit perfectly and now my turn table in my microwave works. I have marked this site a a favorite and will use it I'm sure soon. Being a single women and having to figure out how to fix the things on a small buget, I'm learning a lot and have a lot of respect for men that know how to do all the repair stuff. Thanks so much, I have been able to mark this off my list of things to fix. Have a nice day. Cj- age, 58

Loud buzzing noise and no heat.

PartSelect website indicated replacing the high voltage power supply diode is the solution for "no heat" 99% of the time, but the diode was OK. There is more info at the website concerning the case of "loud buzzing and no heat" indicating the magnetron needs to be replaced. As an electrical engineer with knowledge of microwave components, this was also my best guess. However, getting to the magnetron is not the easiest job, but it's not impossible. You also have to be careful to bleed off any charge stored on the high voltage power supply capacitor. Luckily, I found my KitchenAid service manual tucked away inside the unit since I couldn't find it online.

I just looked at the broken one to see where it broke and looked at the microwave. I realized that there were two screws that were supposed to hold the vent grill along with 3 slots on the bottom. I inserted the slots on the bottom into the preset spaces for them, lined up the top with the two screws and screwed them into place. Checked to make sure the screws were not too tight and that was it. New vent grill in place and ready to go.

I called the repair/parts number to make sure I had correct parts and the young lady instructed me as to the size of the serving tray; within 48 hours we had the VERY carefully wrapped carton opened and back in the microwave, working perfectly. Thank you. We'll recommend you to our friends!

The door ordered was exactly what I needed to replace the old one, however, removing the old door and installing the new one required breaking down the microwave oven. Without the knowledge and tools to accomplish this I had to call a kitchen aid repair service. The labor cost was $160 and considering the complexity of the work it was worth it.
