Sometimes my interior microwave light does not come on, when this happens and I insert a heating time then press start nothing happens and a error message says open and close door then press start. This continues over and over, if I unplug the unit and plug it back in then sometimes the light comes on and it works. Do you know what is causing this? Thanks, Mike
For model number KHMS2040BSS0

Hi Mike, Thank you for your question. If the light inside your microwave is not turning on, the issue may be with the door switches. If they are malfunctioning or if they are out of alignment, then this would prevent the lights from turning on and the microwave from working correctly. You will need to inspect and test the switches to see if they are working. We have included a link where you may find information on how to check them. We hope this helps! If you have any questions, please let us know.

I am getting a message to change / clean the filters however I do not know if mine has a charcoal filter to change out or to just clean the grease filter. When I remove the grease filter I do not see anything resembling a charcoal filter. Can you help me?
For model number KHMS2040BSS0
PartSelect logo
Hello Nancy, thank you for your inquiry. The charcoal filter compatible with your model is part number PS1871363. You may follow the following steps to access the charcoal filter: use a Phillips head screwdriver to unthread the screws securing the front grill. With the screws removed, open the microwave oven door, slide the grill to the left, and lift it up to remove. This will allow you to access the charcoal filter. You may need to change or clean the filter to fix the issue. We hope this solves your problem!

light bult needed to be replaced
The nightmare was that this microwave is installed under the cabinet....in order to get to the light bulb I had to pull out my stove then squeeze into the space between the stove and counter....my old microwave light bult was much easier to change.....Shame on Whirlpool for making this so difficult.....must be a better way to cover the light bulb so that we do not need a screwdriver to remove the door to get to the light bulb

While attempting to get some from the cabinet above my microwave, a guest accidently pulled on the top grill vent and caused the plastic screw tap to crack and break leaving the grill vent hanging.
I first went back Lowe's where I purchased my microwave in the hopes they would help in the ordering of the grill vent for my mircrowave. They advised me that they do not order parts and gave me a card of a company to call to order the part. I called the number on the card and was left on hold for 20 minutes then instead of helping me with the part I needed they proceeded to set up an appointment for someone in my local area to come to my home, order the part the later install. I knew that it was just 2 screws and bottom snaps to install and I didn't want to wait a week for someone to come to my home. I then went direct to the Whirlpool web-site and found "Partselect.com". I was unable to match my model# even though my microwave was only 13 months old but knew it was probably interchangeable with another so I then called "Partselect.com" and was just amazed at how helpful and knowledgeable the gentleman on the other end was. He found my part and was very patient in describing it to me to assure that it was the correct one. I was on the phone less than 10 minutes with him. The part came in 3 days and was the correct part:) It took me less than 5 minutes to gently snap the 2 bottom tabs in and screw in the left and right tabs on top. Thank you so much "Partselect.com" for making what could have been a timely and expensive part replacement be so very simply and inexpensive.
