KitchenAid 1200 W Microwave Oven - 1.6 cu ft - Stainless Steel is rated 1.3 out of 5 by 175.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Touch Pad and numbers stopped working. Do Not Buy. I have owned this microwave for only 2-3 yrs and the Touch Pad has failed after very light use. The Start button and half of the numbers stopped working. No parts available. I was urged not to buy a Kitchen Aid because of the Touchpad failures but I thought I would give it a chance since it matched our other Kitchen Aid appliances. This was a mistake. After complaining to Kitchen Aid they offered me 15% off a new Whirlpool or Kitchen Aid but I have found from reviews both have the same issue. Not impressed and I will likely will be switching brands. I wish Kitchen Aid would offer more knowing how poor this microwave is.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Touchpad stopped working I am disappointed with our KitchenAid microwave that is only 2 years old. Started by just one number not working now 2 rows of buttons have stopped. Definitely won't recommend this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Defective product Add me to the list. Our microwave was installed in our new home in Dec 2018. The touchpad and LCD have been failing; at first it was just the “number” buttons, but now the START button does not function, rendering the whole microwave useless, after only 20 months of usage. Online research indicates Kitchen Aid have no replacement parts to address the issue. This means the microwave is a throw-away, after 20 months usage. This product is defective and should not be on the market. Given the consistent message in these reviews, what is Kitchen Aid doing ?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from control panel problems Our microwave is less than 3 years old and the clock and some of the buttons have stopped working. I was advised by customer service that they do not offer replacement parts. The unit, basically, if it stops working is a "throw away." Given the price I expected better from Kitchenaid. Very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do better KitchenAid! On my second microwave. First one I had to replace the touch panel twice due to buttons not working. 3rd breakage decided to buy a new one instead. Then had to buy a new surround as you changed the measurements just enough that I couldn’t use the one I had! Now the panel on the new machine is also not working. Same as many other reviews here. Absolutely ridiculous!! My cheap microwave that we’ve had for 10+ years that I use in the basement still works fine and was a fraction of the cost.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible product I gave this product one star, only because less wasn't an option. Like just about every other disgruntled user on the internet, we have a microwave that is less than 2.5 years old, and it's stopped working. First the digital clock started having issues with some of the "bars" of the numbers disappearing. Now, today, the start button doesn't work so the microwave is useless. Sadly, with the trim kit, my only option is to replace with the same microwave which is clearly defective in design, as every review has the same problem(s). Avoid this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So Disappointed with This Microwave - I bought this microwave along with new KitchenAid major kitchen appliances in spring 2019 for a cottage property. The touchpad failed in less than 2 years despite limited usage. I took it to our repair shop and was told that KitchenAid does not supply replacement parts. I called KitchenAid and was told that they are not obligated to supply parts - message was too bad, so sad, you need to buy another microwave. Looks like I am not the only customer who has experienced this issue based on 85% 1 star reviews that I found on this site. I cannot believe that this Brand would sell such a sub quality product. I have have purchased microwaves from much lower cost brands that are still working after many years. Very disappointed in the product and the lack of care from their customer service representatives.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Touchpad stopped working We bought two of these microwaves and have had nothing but problems with one of them. It began with the digital clock not entirely showing so we couldn't tell the time to the point where now the touch pad does not work so the whole unit is useless. I see many others are having the same problem. I'm just waiting for the second microwave to go. We purchased over $26,000 of Kitchen Aid appliances and this worries me that the rest of them will start to go after a couple years.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible experience I'm very upset that the Kitchen Aid microwave we purchased with all of our Kitchen Aid appliances has stopped working after 2.5 years. I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing because many consumers have reported the same issues after only a few years! Last year, the digital clock started having issues with some of the "bars" of the numbers disappearing. Then, the start button stopped working on and off and now it won't work at all, so the microwave is useless. Sadly, with the trim kit, it has been a challenge to find a microwave in the same dimensions. I called Kitchen Aid and they can't even recommend another model and offered to give me 15% off the same microwave, which is obsurd. This item should have been recalled!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Control panel, start button does not work! The most important button "Start" has stopped working on my microwave from Kitchen aid YKCMS 1655BSO. So it is useless without a Start button. I see all the reviews have the same problem it is a common issue!!! Start button stops working on the panel. Obviously it should be worked out with this model and it shouldn't be purchased.I have a trim kit specially bought for this, with a cut out in the cabinetry, and now I am stuck? I don't want to buy another KitchenAid! Nor do I want to add to the landfill, our poor environment is suffering enough! What should I do, except not recommend it to anyone?!?!?!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Product We purchased this microwave for our cottage, where it had limited seasonal use. After 3 yrs the touch pad stopped functioning and it became useless. I called customer service. They were friendly but advised the product has a one year warranty and is basically disposable. Given how little it was used before it failed completely, I would not recommend this product.
Date published: 2020-08-28
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Touchpad Failed - Another KitchenAid Problem! The touchpad on our KitchenAid microwave has failed. Since renovating our kitchen with all KitchenAid appliances, we have experienced numerous failures, including leaks from the dishwasher, problems with the ice-maker in the fridge, and even failed parts on an expensive blender. The continual need to repair these items is extremely frustrating.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stopped working after only 2 years We've been loyal Kitchen Aid customers for many years. We purchased this microwave to go with the rest of our kitchen's Kitchen Aid appliances. The microwave began behaving erratically several months ago and today stopped working altogether. Like others have stated, there does not appear to be a way to fix it. Very disappointed in this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Embarrassing for KitchenAid Had mine for 2 years, our whole kitchen is KitchenAid. Was a replacement for basically a similar model that stopped working after 6 years when the control panel buttons stopped responding. Imagine my surprise when a couple days ago the display started having problems and then the control panel 5, 0 and START button stopped working altogether. Just like many reviews on here. Clearly a problem with these control panels when this many people are having the same issue. How about some help for your loyal customers KitchenAid?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works fine until it does not (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) This is now our third purchase of the same microwave. Unfortunately, this microwave was specifically installed for our custom cabinets. It lasts about 2-3 years then no longer works. So disappointing. When we purchased this last microwave in December we were told that this model will now be discontinued. We had to purchase otherwise it would have cost us a ton of money to get kitchen cabinet company to come in and readjust the cabinet. Not a happy customer. Its like holding our breath waiting for this last purchase to stop working!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) This microwave is a replacement for the KitchenAid model that crapped out after only three years. Apparently most models don’t have “serviceable” parts.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Open Door Button Broke in Half Model YKMCS101GS1 purchased in 2019. The open door button broke quite a while ago. Before I buy any old appliance I read these reviews. I wondered if Kitchenaid does anything about it. I could not get through to a real person nor could I get anywhere with the chat line. Hence, I am writing this review. We can still operate the microwave but the appliance guy told me today to get rid of it. By the way the appliance man had to come and repair the hinges on my Kitchenaid induction stove. Took forever to get parts and pay him to fix it. I love the stove but not if it is unusable plus repairman cost $$$. It is also the same vintage 2019 so definitely not old. I thought I was getting quality products.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Start button stopped working We got this microwave with our newly built home 2 years ago. Everything about this microwave is great except the start button stopped working properly and looking at reviews this seems to be a common issue. Bought the trim kit along with it as well. Pretty disappointed as I’ve never had this issue with much older microwaves.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from LCD Control Panel Stopped Working Been using this microwave sparingly since finishing a cottage kitchen reno in March 2018. It's been used a few times a month, if that. The numbers stopped displaying properly just after the one year mark. Now the START button does not function rendering the microwave unusable. Making matters worse is that we bought the matching trim kit which is now unusable as well.
Date published: 2020-09-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buttons WILL fail Everyone is talking about the same issue. Don't make the same mistake, if you are checking reviews before buying, you are smarter than I was, so don't buy it!
Date published: 2022-10-21
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Durability With No Chance of Repair I bought this microwave as part of a Kitchenaid appliance package as part of a significant kitchen renovation in March 2019. On July 3, 2022, the start button stopped responding on the keypad. I can press all the other buttons, just not the start. I talked to a Kitchenaid representative and was told that other than the turntable ring and glass plate, that Kitchenaid did not make any other replacement parts for this microwave. I can't believe that they are still selling this model. I guess that I will have to throw it out and the matching Kitchenaid trim-kit that I bought.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Microwave in Landfill after Two Year Use (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) Not impressed with my microwave that only lasted 2 years and parts are not made available to fix. As the enclosure was a specific size with the trim kit I had to repurchase the same model. It is totally offensive that KitchenAid makes disposable appliances and doesn't seem to care about the environment.
Date published: 2021-10-12
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Built To Last I've had this microwave for a little over 2 years and has already kicked the bucket. First, the display lost parts of its illumination so we couldn't read the time. Then just recently, the start button stopped working, rendering it useless. This also appears to be a common issue with this microwave (a friend of mine had the same issue, and have seen other reviews commenting the same). When it did work.. the button to open the door is quite stiff, and sounds quite clunky/loud when opening and closing. So much so that I avoided using it when trying to be quiet in the house. The timer sound is also unpleasantly loud and not customizable. Overall, for the high price of this microwave, it is not worth it, as its not built to last, and even when it did work, I didn't love it. Note - While researching for a new microwave, it appears the Whirlpool version of this microwave has the same display/start button issue. Buyer beware!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Microwave Product I bought this Microwave model # YKMCSIOl6GS and Trim Kit to go with the rest of my Kitchen Aid products, the first microwave lasted a month Kitchen Aid replaced it and now this replacement lasted roughly 28 months. Half of the time display isn't working, and when you press Start it has a mind of its own !! Over priced junk !

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Touchpad stopped working I know why this microwave has so many bad reviews now! The touchpad on my microwave has failed as well. With the cost for an out of warranty repair, I might as well buy a cheaper, but MORE RELIABLE microwave. Terrible product for a high price. Buy a different microwave!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t Buy This Microwave! I bought this 3 1/2 years ago and the start button does not work anymore, along with some other buttons.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Makes for a Great Disposable Microwave? Microwave lasted for just over two years. LED's ended up burning out (got past that) then the buttons started failing (ohhh no....). This made for an interesting game until the "start" button ended up failing. This round goes to you KitchenAid
