F2 on this model means you have a shorting membrane keypad.

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!

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.

F2 means you have a shorting membrane keypad. 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 of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.

This is actually a simple do-it-yourself job. 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.

Next, disconnect the strip as shown in the photo below, then remove the screws that hold your circuit board in the old frame.

Then carefully (since the display is made of glass) move your circuit board to the new frame, and reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.

The part number to order is W10306627 (formerly 8205018) and you can get it here for $107.05 plus shipping.

You can also find helpful exploded view diagrams at that link.

Microwave will turn on by itself and display PAN on screen.


Does everything come on by itself or is it just a fan that comes on? If so, is it a convection oven?

Microwave is beeping, lock comes on, F2, just keeps beeping by itself


F2 on a KitchenAid mike usually means a Keypad short. Beware if it is a KHMS155LSS, it can self start on its own with a KeyPad short. A real stunning defect.

The F2 error code on your microwave oven is a membrane failure.
It is recommended that you replace the membrane first & if you still have problems to replace the control board.
