• ** REMEMBER! **The microwave can still shock you even unplugged!!

    ALWAYS discharge the high-voltage capacitor first if you even think your hands will come close to any HIGH VOLTAGE components.

    Jeff mentions this: Anything in the high voltage ( magnetron, capacitor, diode, wires to and from ):
    ...Use a metal ( not the shiny chrome type ) screw driver with a insulated handle to short across ( touch both at the same time ) the terminals of the high voltage capacitor to discharge it.

KEMS309BSS00 Kitchenaid Microwave/Oven F6E8 Code

KitchenAid microwave oven combo with F6E8 area code. During my inspection of all the wiring, I found the 20 amp fuse, failed. I also found one of the interlock switch is on the right side was failed as well. I have replaced both a 20 amp fuse and the interlock switch. I reconnected power at the junction box exactly the way it was prior to an installation. Now when I switch the breaker on it immediately trips.

Jake can you find the tech sheet for this please?
