Common replacement parts for KitchenAid countertop microwaves
High-limit thermostat. The high-limit thermostat detects a short circuit or fire inside the microwave cabinet and shuts down the microwave to prevent injury. This component should be replaced a by a service technician because opening the microwave cabinet to replace the high-limit thermostat exposes you to a high-voltage capacitor that can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave power cord is unplugged from the wall outlet.
Cavity light bulb. The cavity light bulb illuminates the inside cavity of the microwave when you open the microwave door and when the microwave is cooking.
Cooking tray. The cooking tray holds foods being cooked inside the microwave cavity and rotates to cook foods evenly.
Turntable motor. The turntable motor rotates the cooking tray so foods cook evenly inside the microwave.
