KitchenAid KEHC379JBL4 Combo wall oven microwave trouble

14 February 2013 - 08:09 AM

I bought this combo wall unit new back in 2002. The microwave portion stopped heating food and started emitting a bad smell like burning wiring or electronics. It also does not sound normal when you try to run it. There are no error codes and the bottom convection oven works fine. Any help would be appreciated.

First off I believe I know the cause of the failure. An ice cube got stuck in the dispenser and caused the ice cubes to begin melting. Once the cube that had things jammed melted enough to fall out the ice refroze as a solid block. When I went to get ice the motor was jammed by the ice and something burned up. The question is was it the switch pack or the motor? I tested voltage at the motor on pins 5 and 7 and get 115 but when I test at pins 1 and 2 the voltage spikes up to about 80 and quickly drops to almost 0. Also I can hear a faint whine from the motor when it spikes to 80 but sound is gone almost instantly. I also tested pins one and 2 on the switch pack and get the same results with it spiking to 80 and dropping instantly. Not sure if I need a switch pack or motor or something else?
