Summary: Microwave worked for 4 years then the magnetron, capacitor, diodes, door springs broke down more often than working probably spent close to $2,000 on repairs. Good thing we still have our 20 year old Quasar as a back up. About ready to throw it off the wharf. Stove works OK.
ZERO STARS- Kitchen Aid Combo Oven Nothing but Problems!

Summary: As a customer I bought new 8 years ago. I had to replace the microwave door springs 3 times with repairs costs of $150.00 each. The springs broke again, but we just live with it. The springs are to light duty to hold the heavy door so we don't try to repair any more.
Summary: I purchased this combo in 2008 along with furnishing my entire kitchen in the Kitchen Aid Architect series. The microwave has been out twice ($520.00), and I have only used the convection microwave feature once because it got much too hot!
Summary: First the hinge in the oven door breaks then after five years use the tension spring in the microwave door breaks. To replace it you need to need to take much more than the door apart to get at one screw that holds the door frame onto the door. The screw is above the vent.
Summary: My old microwave by Jenn-Air uglied out before it wore out. 15 years old. Needed a stainless steel update for kitchen. Product looks good. Just wish this new microwave was built to last. Oven seems fine. Will need to switch brands for a future kitchen.
Summary: In reading these horrid reviews, I'm glad that I followed my gut and ordered my convection/microwave and oven as separate components. I was concerned about potential fuse/board issues particularly if I wanted to use both ovens concurrently. Plus, if one died what was I going to do?
Summary: I just read the other reviews and I wish I had read them sooner! I used the self clean feature on my oven last night and now my oven doesn't work. I tried contacting customer service, but they are closed on weekends. I will get more information tomorrow.
Summary: We had an expensive small self cleaning wall oven installed in 2008. First time we used the self clean feature the oven failed. Repair man of many years experience told us he has spoken with the engineers about the problem and there is no solution that allows the user to use the self clean feature.
Summary: First of all, it is extremely stupid to have a convection oven that you cannot set to a temperature and expect it to stay at that temperature, right? That's just intuitive. Well, the idiots at Kitchenaid must think we're all idiots since you have to set the "original recipe" temperature and the...
