    I suspect this is a shorting membrane keypad, but when does it occur?

    When or after you try to cook with the microwave?

    After you cook on the stove top?

SOURCE: What does an error code of F-9 mean on a Kenmore

The F9 error code indicates a failed inverter. If resetting the unit does not help you will need to have the inverter & harness checked.

This can sometimes by caused by a power surge or glitch through the electrical lines.
You can sometimes clear this fault by completely unplugging the microwave for 1 minute.
Plug it back in and see if the fault code returns.
If it does, then you have an internal component failure that will need to be serviced by a technician.
Microwaves must be serviced by technicians due to the inherent dangers involved in repairing these appliances.
Internal capacitors can retain a lethal electrical charge even though the unit is completely unplugged.
A microwave radiation leakage test must be performed on the unit following any internal component repair.

It does not ALWAYS indicate a inverter control board problem however in other brands/models.
LG's service manual (for an example) suggests the f-9 code could be due to line voltage, magnetron, inverter module, "Relay2", or a loose connection between door/magnetron/control pcb.
Other indications might help narrow down these choices before having to pull out your multimeter and crack open the microwave case.
For example, if the microwave works, but heats slowly, then the troubleshooting manual narrows your choices down to magnetron or line voltage problems, and pretty much rules out the other possibilities.

On a GE or Hotpoint, it usually means the keypad is defective. On some other brands, it means there's a sensor error.

My kitchenaide convection oven is displaying the E1 F4 error.


KitchenAid ovens are popular for their classic design and simple user interface. When a problem occurs in the function of a KitchenAid oven, an error code will display on the clock as soon as the malfunction registers in the oven's memory. Each code corresponds to a particular type of malfunction. Most can be corrected by disconnecting the power supply for one minute and then restarting. If the code persists, either replace the indicated part or contact a service center. F0/F1
  • The F0 and F1 codes refer to electrical issues. If the code appears as only two digits, the problem is a transistor failure, so you must replace the electronic range control (ERC). If the code displays four digits, it will read F0-E0, which indicates a failure switching from analog to digital, or F1-E1, which refers to a safety flip-flop. Both problems require the replacement of the ERC.
  • F2/F3/F4
  • The F2, F3 and F4 codes refer to problems with the oven temperature sensor or the keypad. If you see the two-digit F2 code, it means your keypad has shorted and the ERC must be replaced. The four-digit F2-E0 code means that the oven temperature is too high. Test the door lock and the relay operation, and correct as necessary. A two-digit F3 code means an open temperature sensor or thermal fuse, so those parts must be replaced. A four-digit F3-E0, F3-E1, F3-E2 or F3-E3 code or a two-digit F4 code means that either the oven is registering as too hot or the temperature sensor has shorted. Either way, the oven temperature sensor must be replaced.

    My AEG Micromat_Combi microwave has started coming up with an E14 error message, have you any ideas please.


    The motor opening some air valve is probably stuck. See "AEG “micromat_combi 635” halts with error E14. What to do?" at http://appliancewiz.com/questions/47/aeg-micromatcombi-635-halts-with-error-e14-what-to-do for some images and instructions.

    ENLIGHTENMENT ON AN ERROR CODE


    The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

    Otherwise, your best bet is to contact AEG customer service here:
    http://www.aeg-electrolux.co.uk/node137.asp

    I'd bet that customer service will not know the meaning of the code (if it's not in your owner's manual) and they will steer you to a service center.

    The service center will probably not tell you what the code means, preferring instead to repair it for you.

    Good luck.

    Microwave


    From Samsung support: "If your microwave is displaying E1, E4, or E5, there may be an issue with the gas sensor. For an E1 error, press the Cancel button and check on the food."

    Otherwise, you may have a failing sensor.

    ERROR CODE E 63 COMES ON AFTER 2 MINUTES ON SAMSUNG MICROWAVE


    Some models are equipped with a sensor that can automatically adjust the oven's heating time based on the amount of steam in the oven.  If your microwave is displaying E1, E4, or E5, there may be an issue with the gas sensor. For an E1 error, press the Cancel button and check on the food.

    If the message is either ERROR or E-6, it indicates a mechanical fault.

    For all error indications, try unplugging the microwave from the outlet for at least ten minutes and then plug it back in. If the error persists, the microwave may require service. Please use our ASC Locater to find your nearest Authorzied Service Center
