Customer: replied 2 years ago.
it resembles the part number 10 ferrite #w10252581 but there appears to be 3 of those and this only has 2 and those look cylindrical with flat on both edges and my burnt out part is cylindrical flat on one end but bullet shaped on the other it also doesn't appear to come from the same area where I extracted the part it was just right of overhead center in the steel channel leading to the side where all the electrical parts are

Hello,
My name isXXXXX have been an appliance tech for more than 15 years and I will be helping you today. That part you removed is not replaceable. When that part becomes burnt chances are the magnetron is also damaged. But that is in the waveguide channel and it becomes loose and the bare metal is exposed and then the magnetron waves all get directed to the bare metal causing the burn marks. I see this happen on this model allot. You can not repair the microwave when this happens! Your best bet is to call kitchenaid and let them know your unit burnt up inside the wave guide channel. I hope this helps..
