SOURCE: Kenmore microwave

If this has a controller that runs a microwave and an oven, then the problem F2 means a temperature related fault such as a bad temp sensor / thermostat or a defect in the control board. If it's just a microwave, then the problem is likely a failing keypad. In many cases, those can be replaced economically. If you repost with your exact model number (62622 is not a complete model number) then we can advise you further and more specifically.

SOURCE: Kenmore microwave - unresponsive keypad

Repaired the unresponsive keypad on my older Kenmore (model 721.68100): Unplug. Remove integral cover for top and sides which is held in place by 5 metal screws. The cover then slides toward the rear. Unplug two connectors to back of keypad and clean them (I used contact spray cleaner). Some of the components retain a charge even when unplugged.

Mine too! I solved it, and hopefully you can too. I hit the clear/off button and held it down for several seconds with the door opened and closed. It cleared it up and it works again, hopefully forever.

How do I fix the key pad of a Kenmore microwave model 401.80084700?


I don't know of anyway to repair the keypad. Usually replacement (of the keypad/control console) is the only option. But you might want to remove the ribbon cable that connects the keypad to the control board behind it, clean it with a degreaser (like Fantastic or 409), dry it, and re-insert it, and then try again. (Remember to unplug the microwave oven first before you try that!)

Kenmore Microwave automatically starts popping popcorn


If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and please do not leave it running unattended.

You have a shorting membrane keypad.

On some models, you have to peel off the old one and replace it.

On some models, you remove your controller and move your ciruit boar dinto a new frame with a keypad already installed.

FixYa is not currently notifying us when Clarification Requests are answered, so please contact me directly with your full model number from the tag on / in the unit and color so we can help you with free do-it-yourself tips and/or an estimate.

A full Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########

Kenmore microwave model number 401.80084700 Displaying -SE-/-5E-


-SE- error means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.

There are three ways you can get it fixed:

DE34-00178X SWITCH MEMBRANE $20.30
ref#53 membrane keypad
take yours off as in the video at our site, peel the old keypad off as in this handy guide with pictures , clean the surface, stick on the new keypad
order by part number here
(We can do this job for you for a total of $70.25, but as you can see, the other two options are more practical and economical)

DE94-01647A ASY CONTROL PANEL $39.01
ref#66 control panel frame with keypad
take yours off as in the video at our site, disconnect the keypad strip as shown here, move your circuit board to the new frame, reinstall
order by part number here

DE94-01648A ASY CONTROL, BOX $58.12
ref#59 complete control panel assembly with frame, keypad and circuit board
take yours off as in the video at our site, then install the new one
order by part number here

If these parts are not in stock, they should be available in about a week or so.

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

Some control panel buttons don't work


You need to replace the touch pad assy. Moisture gets up around the contacts and, it doesn't take much to short them out. Some will work, others will not. Eventually, others will fail, leaving it inoperable. Recommend fixing ASAP
