    Same model, same problem. It was manufactured 9/05. I am very upset and scared that even after we repair it that it will happen again when I am not at home and catch on fire. There were Kitchenaid microwave recalls in 2001 because of 7 houses catching on fire. WHAT SHOULD I DO? Does anyone know of a recall on this mode: KHMS155L? Kitchenaid will pay for minor repair but I have to pay parts and it will probably occur multiple times.

hi,
The F2 code is a keyboard failure. Since it's intermittent I would check for a loose wire/connection. open the control panel and reset the ribbon cable on the circuit board....


thank you,

Not sure what you mean by "Q1 Touch FMEA" above, but F2 error code indicates a bad keypad or sometimes a bad sensor.

Since it's brand new I would first consult the manual. If you don't have it still, you can download it from the owner center here: http://whirlpool.com/custserv/index.jsp

If you still have trouble, since it's new, it should obviously be under warranty, so I'd contact them (same page as shown above) to get it repaired under warranty.


We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: kitchenaids microwave error message F2.Q1. What to

F2.Q1 Not reading keypad
inputs
1. Unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
2. Replace the user interface board (UIB).
3. Replace the door control assembly.
4. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
5. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power.

Many of the error codes may be solved by power cycling: unplug microwave oven or
disconnect power. After one minute, plug in microwave oven or reconnect power.

i found this info on a tech sheet hope this helps, let me know how it goes... some of those electronics had 5 year parts warranty i would check that out....Also u might be better of buying a new one if its out of warranrty as some of those boards are expensive, obvioulsy unplug unit first try to reset it self.

SOURCE: error message on a whirlpool microwave oven

Hi,

The F2 H2 error code refers to a faulty hood/light switch. This is a combonation board located just behind the buttons on the left panel. The part number for the switch board is 8206049. Since the screws holding this left panel on are only accessable with the door of the microwave removed, I would recommend this repair to be done by a profressional repair person.

The F2 error code on your microwave oven is a membrane failure.
It is recommended that you replace the membrane first & if you still have problems to replace the control board.

Error code F2


Per the tech sheets (page 8), "F2" error code means "Keyboard failure". Recommended by the manufacturer to replace the touch panel first and, if it would not solve the problem, then the control board has to be replaced too. Not the best recommendation but we have to follow it.

- The part number for the touch panel (aka a membrane switch) is AP3130765

- The part number for the control board AP3130764

Here are the break down diagrams for the Kitchen Aid microwave Model KHMS155LSS4

Error code F2


The error code "F2" that appears on your KitchenAid microwave refers to a keyboard failure/short on the front button panel or loose keypad connector

Attempt the following to clear error:
Check keypad connector for firm connection.
Press "Cancel" after the error code is noted, if error code returns after 60 seconds, replace keypad ( also called touch pad or membrane switch ).

Best of Luck with the microwave.

It's better to reply back instead of starting a new thread.

Unplugging it for a while and then plugging it back in is how you reset it.

I put in a message to Whirlpool technical to see if they can tell me what this code is. I'll reply back when I find out.
