Okay, thank you for that.

You have a failed membrane keypad, but on this model, it is not available separately.

You would need to order the control panel assembly, part # WB56X10817, which you can get here for far less than GE charges.

It costs more than just a membrane would, but is much simpler to replace.

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 your circuit board from the old frame and install it in the new frame.

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 cooking unattended.

On this model, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame assembly which comes with a new keypad.

It's actually a pretty easy do it yourself job.

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 numbers to order are shown below by color you can get it here.

8185288 Biscuit
8185287 Black
8204739 Stainless

SOURCE: no display on microwave touchpad for ge Model JKP62G

The GE JKP62G Microwave / Oven combination has an internal fuse behind the control panel for the microwave. The oven will operate but the microwave will be totally dead (no light, no clock). Turn off the breaker for the oven at the fuse box (30 Amp double breaker). In order to replace the fuse you will have to open the door to the microwave, remove the two screws (Torx) from the front control panel (located on the left edge of the control panel), wiggle the panel to the left (there are two metal tabs that stick into the metal frame of the microwave on the right of the panel) and then tilt the panel down from the top. There is a metal bracket that holds the control panel to the microwave at the bottom (don't remove it). Look towards the top of the microwave inside the area behind the control panel and you will see a 15 Amp screw in fuse. Replace the fuse and that should fix your problem.

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.

If it still will not accept key input, your membrane keypad has failed.

Depending on your specific model number, the membrane keypad may be available separately, or you may have to order the control panel frame, which comes with a new keypad.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

My Samsung SMH2117s microwave light is blinking constantly when plugged in and won't turn on. Does anyone know what this could mean is broken?


The controller may be glitched. I would suggest unplugging it for 2 minutes, then trying again.

If it still fails, there may be an issue with a door switch or door switch mount.

If it's still under warranty, contact Samsung for help. The support page for your microwave is here. The SMH2117S owner's manual is here.

If it's not under warranty, see my help files:

For more free DIY and other help & advice, feel free to contact me via my site.

Please include FULL model number*, FCC ID number*, + detailed symptom information. (* on the tag in the cooking cavity or around the door frame or the control frame or on the back)

I have the SE code on my Samsung microwave. I have replaced the touch pad but the code remains. Any further advice? What is the purpose of the second tail on the pad; not the one that goes into the plug...


Hello & Welcome to FixYa
SE or 5E means shorted keypad and to solve this problem the keypad needs replacement, if it has already been replaced then it is better to replace the ribbon cable connecting the board. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Same thing happened to us. We just came back from Sears, where we bought another. Just for giggles, my wife suggested unplugging the old one and plugging it back in again. It works now. New one's going back to the store.
