When started unit "runs" then throws a f2 code and seemingly does not heat

    The
    first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a
    minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.



    If that doesn't work,
    leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes. Then let us know if the hard
    reset does not fix it.


    There
    should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit
    behind the
    control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is
    very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.


    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.


    The mini-manual will have a list of codes and will tell you what F2 means in this model.

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.

The "HUMM" indicates a breakdown in the High Voltage Side. The loud "POP" was the breakdown. You have only four Components in the High Voltage side.

1. High Voltage Transformer. You can eliminate this as the problem. Why? If it was the problem it would have blown the line fuse, and would have given off a burned transformer smell.
2. High Voltage Diode. Usually will Burn or Pop when shorted, but will then OPEN the Circuit and there is no "HUMM".
3. High Voltage Capacitor.This is the Silver Can with the two terminals on top. It can SHORT internaly between the plates (the two terminals) and give the "HUMM".
4. Magnetron. This is my number one suspect. A SHORTED Magnetron.

The light bulb already works, so this isn't the problem.

This is usually inverter trouble, but it may be the magnetron, controller, wiring, etc.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

To find helpful exploded view diagrams and get part numbers, you can just enter your full model number at the Sears parts site.

SOURCE: Kenmore microwave model 63792 displays F2 error message

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.

Hi,

F2 is a bad keyboard error code. Try this, unplug the unit, open the control panel and disconnect the ribbon cable from the control board, plug back in, if f2 comes back on the board needs replacing, if it does not, then the problem is with the keypad.

F2 is appearing on microwave and its not working


F2 on a Whirlpool microwave means you have a shorted 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.

Please note that FixYa is not currently notifying us Experts when Clarification Requests are answered.

F2 code on display - microwave does not heat


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.
