We had a KitchenAid microwave in the house before and all of our other appliances are KitchenAid, so it narrowed it right down when the old one died. (It lasted 12 years). It was also a built in, so we pretty much had to buy the same size, and this is the one that fit the bill. I guess not much has changed in the last 12 years, as it is very similar. I will say it is quieter than the previous one. the buttons seem like you have to push them a bit harder, and when you use the timer it says "end" when done and you have to hit the cancel button to clear it and get the time to show again. Minor, yes, but a bit annoying. Other than that, it works quite well.
I replaces a sharp microwave that had worked great for 16 years. I can only get certain microwaves, as the hole for it is small. I have noticed the sensor cook tends to run hot and long. therefore, food comes out burnt sometimes. Also, the tone at the end has all but muted. it is so soft, I cannot hear it unless I am standing right on top of it.
Kitchen Aid had done a very nice job with this black stainless microwave. Replace the oven and the dishwasher just before buying this unit. Works and looks great. The only negative and it is not just with this unit, however all new microwave feel light / cheap. Time will tell how long this unit lasts.

I expect more from KitchenAid
This microwave looks great and works well. Only drawback is the lifespan of this appliance. This is the THIRD one I have replaced in the past 6 years. We use ours every day and the longest one has lasted has been slightly over two years. I would expect more from a KitchenAid at this price but matches our other appliances.
smaller and louder than the original kitchen aid microwave that this replaced. but we felt we needed to stick with kitchen aid for the uniformity of our kitchen appliance set.
also, be careful to order the correct trim kit. our salesperson ordered one that was too large given the dimensions provided.
A:AnswerThe KCMS185J unit has dimensions HxWxD 13 9/16x18 13/16x23 7/8 and the KMCS1016GSS unit has dimensions 13x17 1/4x21 3/4. I could not find the center opening dimensions of your trim kit but it seems from the microwave dimensions that the KMCS1026GSS has smaller size than your original unit. The new unit should fit but will have extra space around the sides and top where you will be able to see into the opening the trim kit is surrounding.
The other thing you should consider is the finish of the trim kit compared to the finish of the microwave unit you are considering.
A:AnswerWe replaced a built in microwave in the same "hole" used the same trim kit MK2167 - the store could not tell me which kit would fit, so I decided to wait and see it the old one would work. Since it is installed I can only give you the width 21 5/8", the height 11 3/4 " . The depth from the INSIDE back to the outside front looks to be 16". I can't remember the model number of the old microwave since I threw away the booklet, but it is identical to this one. I hope this helps.
A:AnswerCoolquestion, this model Microwave has a 30" trim kit MK2160AS and a 27" trim kit MK2167AS available. Please see the installation instructions for cutout requirements: MK2167AS https://go.aws/2Tu8O34 and MK2160AS https://go.aws/3ciEHEl
