Intermitant Stop - Start
Hi, my kitchenaid microwave, once started, sometimes starts, stops then restarts...multiple times. It's like it has an electrical short. Also, the clock is losing about three minutes / day, so I think electricity may be getting cut off momentarily, as well?
The microwave cooks fairly normal, but just with fits and starts! Thanks for your help.

I don't work on microwaves, but I'll see if Jeff can help you.

Not overly familier with this style....many of these or not up here with me.
Kicking in and out....one would/should check things in the main power.....house wire ( something loose ), plug/outlet, line filter, fuse/fuse holder ( inside the unit ), cold solder joint on the board, etc.
I found a Tech sheet manual on line.
