Question about Whirlpool Microwave Ovens

Microwave oven panel starting beeping from and doesn't work

The microwave was off and it starting beeping from 1 to 10 for several times. Then it stopped and "F2" showed on the panel. I couldn't press any numbers and it doesn't work. I unplugged it for a while. When I plugged it back it it let me put the time on the clock and then it started with the beeping again.

You either have a shorted keypad or another problem with the control panel assembly.

We regularly repair these control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week with a one-year guarantee.

Direct spraying of cleaners on the keypad and steam from the cooktop can damage the controls.

Always spray non-ammonia cleaner on a soft cloth (not a paper towel which can scratch) and gently wipe the keypad.

Always use the vent fan when cooking on the stove top to keep steam and grease out of the controls.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

1. Microwave noise 2. keyboard and beeping


Make sure oven is plugged into a grounded outlet, and that the outlet is actually grounded.
Although extremely rare, I have seen ovens where insects were walking on the back side of a control panel, and causing problems. Could also just be some sort of electronic failure.

Microwave will not start when time is entered and start is pushed


You got it! One of the door switches is not activating. Take a look at the door itself first. There should be two tabs that stick out. These tabs will engage in the holes near the control panel. If the door does not have a broken tab then the problem is behind the control panel on one of the switches. There are 3 switches back there.

Unplug the power cord, it is usually in the cabinet above the microwave oven. Then take the grille off the top, the screws for the grille are on the top of the unit facing down. With the grill off you will see the one screw on top of the control panel, remove that screw and lift up and out on the control panel this will give you access to view the switches and test them with an ohmmeter.

My GE microwave started running by it's self. It first said 3.5oz and would not stop until door was opened. then it started beeping and wouldn't stop until door was opened. we unplug hoping it would reset...


It sounds as if you key pad is sticking. PF means that there is an input power problem but could be caused by the sticking keypad.. As far as the unit starting bu itself, the only thing that can cause that is the keypad.. Try running your fingers flat across the panel several times both vertically and horizontally and see if the pad malfunction clears. It will probably repeat in the future but you could get lucky and have a one time instance. The keypad itself is just a bit over $75.00 if it has failed. Good luck.

Avanti microwave. Panel not working, alot of beeping.


sounds like a panel issue for sure.
if the microwave is over 5 yrs old I would recommend replacing it
newer microwaves use far less power than before.
and they are not too expensive

What does -F6- code stand for?


F6 means a problem in the control circuit board.
Try unplugging the microwave with the door open, then plug it back.
Try the solution that you find here, if it does not work the panel must be replaced.

Microwave beeps, error codes display and keypad stops working


It sound like you have a bad keypad or controls.

Is it possible that moisture from the sponge is getting into the controls?

You might contact the manufacturer to see if there might be a recall. I've seen keypad recalls in the past.

Anytime the keypad is suspected of coming on by itself, the oven should be unplugged when not in use.

Whirlpool RMC275PD microwave won't start


I would first suggest unplugging the oven for a few minutes to give it a reset. On Whirlpool brand microwaves, you will hear a series of beeps when you hit START if one of the following is true: - the control panel is not programmed correctly - the door is not shut - there is a problem with the door latch system - there is a problem with the control panel If you do not have your owner's manual, you can download it here: http://www.whirlpool.com/custserv/literature_search_results.jsp?searchTerm=RMC275PD#literror It doesn't sound like the control panel is locked. When the control panel lock is activated, you will see "Loc" and a lock symbol in the display and only the clock, timer, and oven light will operate. If that does not solve the problem, then you have oneof the other problems as listed above. If you need further help, please reply / add a comment here.
