    You hit that one right on the head. Better to have called them because it was just under a year and they're going to warranty it. Can't thank you enough Ray!!!! Are these tough to install?



    Thanks again

    Hi Pat..



    As I said before, follow the instructions carefully with the new pad. (I assume you have already ordered it) If you have problems with installation, call for technical assistance at 800 432 2737. Have your information in front of you when you call.

Whirlpool mircowave model MH3184XP the display reads F2



There is a problem with the control pad. The membrane, or surface, of the pad may be broken or damaged somewhere, resulting in the F2 error code. This is common for Whirlpool microwaves.


Press "Stop/Cancel" twice and select a new cook program. Press "Start" to begin.

If the error code persists, press "Stop/Cancel" again and unplug the microwave. Wait several minutes and plug it in. If the F2 code appears again, it requires repair.


Replacement membranes can be found online

but the internals of a microwave are dangerous, having high voltages even when unplugged. With the cost of parts and labour from a service tech, you may be best buying a new oven.

Touch pad not working properly


That sounds like the interface controller which is just a little computer chip that cotrols everything and watches the signals from the touchpad is having problems. Usually these will behave like this and then just stop so your touchpad is totally dead. It may take out the time displays as well.

If you have warrenty from GE or the store it will be covered. If you are not covered then it can cost about the same or more as a new microwave as they will have to replace the board. Check your warrenty's, then check the repair cost and check replacement costs. Usually a new microwave is the cheapest.

GE spacemaker HVM1540DNWW. After I cleaned touchscreen the buttons don't work anymore. i unplugged it for a while, still only get "press clock" message


Take a hair dryer in low / no heat setting or a plain old fan and let it blow on the keypad for a while. Do not let the key pad get overly warm. You got a bit of moisture in the pad membrane and the goal here is to evaporate the moisture. It may take longer than you think to evaporate the moisture. If you let the moisture stay in the membrane too long it will cause corrosion and the key pad will NOT be usable.

Controlpanel flashes f 3


You have a faulty keypad. You could probably special order this part from a local appliance parts supply store for 50-60$ or purchase a new microwave.

While cleaning it the vent began to open and close and the microwave would not shut the vent down when the keypad was used to end the cycle. Now it only shows F3 on its screen when we try to set it up...


The "F3" error code means "Shorted key panel (touch pad)". The correction is to replace the key panel aka a membrane switch or a touch pad. The control panel in that case is just a plastic frame.

please rate this help to keep us online

Microwave shows F2 on display with controls non functional


HI. this is a code that represents a failed key pad or touch pad membrane board. replacing this failed touch pad will fix this issue. This touch pad board is separate from the actual control board.

The ''stop/clear'' and ''clock'' setting feature quit working. Everything else is fine.


This is either a defective touch pad membrane or the entire main control board is not functioning correctly. many times, the unit will have a separate touch control but, most newer models will have the touch pad integrated together with the main assembly. In this case, replace the main touch control assembly.

Touch pad does not work, clocke does, nothing else works


Hi this will happen when the touch pad circuits become unstable and damaged, due to abundant usage or , old age.

simply replacing the touch pad will fix this issue.
