Question about KitchenAid KHMS155LSS 1000 Watts Microwave Oven
I get a F2 on my microwave display model # KHMS155LSS-4. Every few minutes it beeps and it doesn't heat up. Lights come on and tray turns.
F2 on this model means you have a shorting
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.
On this model, the membrane keypad is available already mounted on a new control panel frame. It runs a little more, but saves a lot of time consuming and aggravating work.
In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame.
At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
Then you remove a few more screws and disconnect the wires.
It is part # AP3673562 (same as 8205018) and runs $80.97 + shipping here.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

The solution posted here is a life-saver! I mean that it was a sinch to install and saved me a $75 diagnostic fee (simply for the service man to come in and tell me that it is an F2 error code and that the keypad is bad). Then on the phone they proceeded to say it was $125 per hour minimum charge to install plus the price of the $108 (8205018) keypad. Basically this page saved me $200 and I had the keypad delivered to my house and I installed it in about 15 minutes. MANY THANKS!

Tips for a great answer:
Whirlpool is conducting a safety recall on the Kitchenaid KHMS155L series (and similar models under other brand names) that display the F2 code or have been observed self-starting. Other symptoms may be additional codes or unintelligible info being displayed, and failure to execute the command entered into the control pad. To obtain free replacement of the control panel, call Ava at Whirlpool: 1-866-640-7146, extension 6337. She will want your complete model and serial numbers and a phone number and address where you can be reached. She will arrange for A & E Factory Service to contact you to set up an appointment to come out and replace the control panel at no cost to you.
