    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.

My Panasonic Over the range microwave Model NN-H264SF front touch pad don't get any beep plus i cannot put any number so microwave don't work. If range get over heat microwave exhaust fan get activated...

it needs to be repaired others have had the same problem.
here's one review...
liked this product very much, until it died after a little under 1.5 years. I brought it to a repair center recommended by Panasonic. They quoted me a parts-and-labor price of around $125 to fix the thing. The repair included a new membrane pad (the buttons on the front), new fuse, and new fuse holder.

The repair center told me they've been instructed by Panasonic to replace all old fuse holders with newer, better ones. Apparently, the original fuse holder was somewhat defective, causing the fuse to burn out. I don't know if this bears any relation as to why a relatively new membrane pad might have gone bad, but it's certainly annoying for a device costing several hundred dollars.

I've got a badly scratched touchpad membrance from abrasive sponge - lesson learned the hard way. Anyways, how do I replace the touch pad membrane on a Kenmore Microwave Model # 721.80049700? I&

I am not familiar with that specific model but typically touch pads either come as an assembly or as just the membrane that has a peel off paper on the back that covers a sticky layer that sticks onto the metal frame inside your unit. If that is the case, you have to remove the old touch pad and take a screw driver or a knife and start at one end and lift it off of the frame, once peeled off, clean the metal frame with laquer thinner to remove the old adhesive, make sure it is dried completely and then take off the protective paper of the new pad and stick it to the frame. If it is a plastic frame you CANNOT use a solvent like laquer thinner as it will melt the plastic frame and destroy it. On those I tend to just drag a razor blade across the surface until I feel it is clean enough to mount the new one. You could use alcohol to clean it. Or possibly mineral spirits. You jsut want it to be perfectly clean and grease free

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.

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.
