Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Nice Until it wasn't

Vane28 6/25/2019

After about a year it started malfunctioning. When the door is closed and time is set it will not start. You have to open and close the door till it catches just right. Now the bottom to open the door doesn't even work you basically have to pry the door open.

Only lasted 2 years - started sparking!

APG1970 6/12/2019

Bought this microwave along with an entire suite of KitchenAid appliances for a new construction home. Not even two years later the microwave sparks and was told it needs a new magnetron. Read some of the other reviews and you'll see the same problem. Cost for the service call, plus parts, plus labor = way more than it's worth to fix it. And of course it's out of warranty. WHAT A COMPLETE DISAPPOINTMENT!!! This appliance costs way too much ($500!!!) to replace every few years! I know plenty of people that have microwaves still working after 10+ years. Terrible quality. Terrible value. Not what I expected out of this brand. Would not recommend this.

Broke

Innovative 4/4/2019

It was working fine for occasional dinner warmups for couple years until it did not. Suddenly for no apparent reason it did not start anymore. It is completely dead and not responding.

ann v 3/7/2019

Have had this unit about 18 months. The open and close button is barely working. I have to push it differently than I did when the unit was new. I'm afraid it is going to break when I have food in the unit and I won't be able to open the door and get the food out. Has anyone else had this issue?

Door malfunctioned within two years of purchase

rp4315 7/30/2018

The microwave has stopped working. When we close the door, the panel lights up momentarily but switches off right away. Looks like the mechanism to indicate that the door is closed has gone bad. If you look at various reviews, you'll find numerous issues with the door. Don't buy this unit!

Microwave cooks well but exterior quality lacking

Crawdad 2/19/2018

This microwave was installed new on November 14, 2017. It cooks well and has many cooking modes that are nice to have. Our only complaint is the quality of the exterior. The finish has already worn off the button you push to open the door and is very noticeable. Also the keypad buttons have to be pressed quite hard to respond so I'm afraid they may not last too long. We're seniors with no children at home so the microwave hasn't been used a lot.

Not like my old microwave!

ChristinaJJ 10/16/2017

This was one of 4 major appliances we purchased for our kitchen remodel. I expected better. The push for the door to open doesn't work 1 out of 5 times. When you close the door 1 out of 4 times it somehow clears the clock & you have to reset. The first 2-3x we thought perhaps our hand is hitting the clock button but that isn't the case. Not very impressed.

Touch pad hard to use

This microwave was installed in a new home that we purchased. The touch pad takes an extreme amount of pressure to get them to work. My next step is contacting the appliance store where it was purchased.

9/14/2017

the microwave starting sparking and when we called an appliance repairman out to fix it he said he could fix it but kitchenaid doesn't sell the replacement parts that he needed. so now i have to go buy a new microwave. also, the repairman said that it was a problem with the microwave, not anything that i did wrong to cause the microwave to spark.

Would not recomment!

7/19/2017

I have recently had two of these microwaves installed, the second because the mechanism to open the door didn't always work. I have to try 3 or 4 times to get the door to open. It was replaced with another one, and the door wouldn't open on the the new one. Also, the clock doesn't work. The microwave obviously has a design problem that needs to be fixed, All the other features were great though.

7/18/2017

Replaced older Kitchen Aid which could not be repaired due to unavailable parts. Door button difficult to push. Turntable does not remain stationary if needed. Touch pad difficult to read due to little contrast in color. Plastic surround instead of metal. Liked my older version better overall.

Throw-away Microwave from KitchenAid (KCMS2255BSS)!

7/4/2017

Our builder installed a new KitchenAid KCMS2255BSS above the oven in our Kitchen. Three years later, that Microwave doesn't work anymore due to a malfunctioning relay/circuit-board! (It thinks that door is open when its closed and vice versa; door hinge itself was tested and found to be OK with voltage output, relay/circuit-board that that the hinge connects to with wires is the culprit). We have been paying for Home Warranty Services (that also cover home appliances) and those guys told us that the KitchenAid Microwave builder put (Model# KCMS2255BSS and serial# XV41900173), is a Microwave that even KitchenAid doesn't cover under warranty after the 1st year of purchase! KitchenAid has no parts to be replaced for that Model# (other than turn table) after the 1st year and recommends buying a new one after 1st year! What a waste!

Not great, but not bad

5/16/2017

We bought this to replace our previous KitchenAid microwave that was rusting out. We had limited choices to select from since we use this as a built in. The microwave itself works fine. The button to open the door does not work well. You have to push the button and lift up on the microwave door to open the door. You cannot just push the button and the door open. I had read reviews about this issue and it was valid. The clock display light does not match our other KitchenAid products (its a brighter/lighter blue). But we are getting used to it. We ended up using the nice trim kit that came with our first microwave that is actually stainless steel instead of using the plastic trim kit we purchased to go with this microwave.

This microwave will compliment any kitchen. We just built our new home and went with the top of the line commercial kitchen appliances. We looked at all the top brands. This was by far the highest rated for the 2.2 cu ft and 1200 watts. We use it for basically all types of cooking from boiling water, cooking vegetables and meats.
