Asked by: Anne
Anne, I believe that you have two different units getting confused somehow. The KCMS1655 unit has a black background behind the numbers pad. The KMCS1016 unit has a white numbers pad. They are generally the same size and power and use the same trim kit if you are installing them in the wall/cabinet. The display LEDs differ in tint, if this is important to you in matching other existing products. CD

Customer Reviews

1.6 cu. ft. Countertop Microwave in White is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 153.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Clock display stopped working after 1 year. Number buttons stopped working soon after. We had to ... Clock display stopped working after 1 year. Number buttons stopped working soon after. We had to use the 30 second option if we want to use the microwave for any reason. Right at the 2 year mark, everything stopped working. A quick google search shows I'm far from the only one with the same experience. Very very poor quality. I called KitchenAid customer service. They are no help, even lied about the manufactured date - told me it was manufactured in February 2016 when the microwave itself says it was manufactured in October 2016. They told me they offer no service or parts on the model - which to me means they have so many issues with this model that it would be too much trouble for them to offer any help. They did let me know that our builder had purchased a 1 year extended warranty but that has conveniently expired a month ago and now they can do nothing. BUT if i'm willing to buy a new one, they'll give me a 6 month extension on the 1 year warranty for free! Wow, they must think I'm an idiot. I had always thought KitchenAid was "high end" kitchen appliances. No, they are just garbage appliances with high end prices.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Depth in specs is incorrect, should be 18" Can't accurately rate the model because KA is in the process of exchanging with no hassle due to nonfunctioning power button. Do want to alert KA and buyers that the actual depth is 18" due to bulge at the back which my prior model did not have. Also, the plug is a straight in plug vs a side plug which can make a difference in your measurements. Formerly owned KCMS1555RSS2, and the door is much stiffer on the new model. I've had a few "door" messages as well when the door was fully closed. This unit seems to require longer time settings and the colon between the hour and minutes flashes continuously, which is unusual. I've only had the unit a short time and use has been limited due to the power button failure so I can't really be sure, whether I just haven't adjusted to the "feel" of the new unit, have a unit with more than one problem or if I just don't like the new model as much as my old one. Primary concern is alerting all to the depth being inaccurate which resulted in having to have an electrician move the outlet in the built in cabinet for a better fit. Prior post on the other 213/4 " model was in error. Hopefully, KA will take it down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Attractive and functional, but will it last? We got this microwave to replace one that failed after 10 years. Unfortunately, the old size and model was discontinued and this does not have the great appearance and solid feeling our last one did. We give it 4 stars because it fits and it cooks quickly. We're hesitant to rate it higher than that because of the comments of the opener latch that fails. Ours does not open smoothly. One has to press it hard, and suddenly it gives. There is no smoothness or ease of pressure to the opening mechanism. Perhaps this is just a quirk that will continue for the next 10 years, or it's a sign of a poorly designed latch. So it just gets 4 stars. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Seems to work ok, but there is no menu to make adjustments, like tones. I don't need/want any tones on my microwave, and even though it is advertised as being able to turn the tones off, there are no instructions to do so. After 2 phone calls to customer support and 50 minutes later (!), I STILL don't have an answer. Customer service policy is that they won't call someone back after they've researched the problem so you have to stay on the phone for a ridiculous amount of time. What sort of policy is that? Will not buy another KitchenAid product after this experience. There are lots of other options out there!!!

Button to open the door is so stiff I expect it to break within a few months. My old KitchenAid microwave button broke, but at least it was 9 years old. KitchenAid does not support this product for any replacement parts, so you are outta' luck if anything breaks. (I was hoping to buy some replacement buttons proactively, but no, they don't even list this microwave on their parts web site.) They also make sure that your replacement microwave won't fit in your old microwave trim kit. They even make sure the new trim kit (you know, the one that replaces your old 100% stainless steel insert kit with a plastic one) you have to purchase won't fit in your cabinet. My current replacement cost me over $3,000 because I had to completely replace a cabinet due to these greedy decisions of Maytag/KitchenAid and now the button to open the door barely works? Think of the landfills that are full of functional KitchenAid appliances, needing only one small $10 replacement part. Environmental watch dogs really need to get down on Maytag and KitchenAid.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poorer quality than earlier model. Noisy. I had a similar K.A. Microwave that died after 15 years. I had great service from the old one so replaced with closest available. Bought the trim kit for the new model. Labelled correctly, but neither kit nor micro had needed screwholes shown in instructions. Am trying to make it work, but trim kit doesn’t allow door to fully open. Also, the new micro is much noisier than the old one and sounds tinny when door closes. My kitchen is all this brand, but standards appear to have changed. Lots of money to spend for disappointment. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks great! I bought it about two months ago for our kitchen remodel. It has great power and good features. One recommendation I have is the push button on the front should be swapped out for a traditional kitchenAid pull handle (like the over-stove models). The push button is a bit “cheap feeling” when pressed. The rolling ring under the glass turn-table was broken right out of the box. It was definitely a molding defect (broke at the nit line). The appliance store replaced it -no questions! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Problem on the horizon with door latch The microwave was recently installed and already the door latch button is not feeling right. When I depress the button to open the door it doesn’t always catch and I have to work at getting the door to open. I can tell that it will totally fail soon. No problems with the microwave functions but if I can’t open the door the unit is obviously useless. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
