Re: Ikea micro wave whirlpool

F3 usually means a keypad or temperature sensor / thermistor problem.

The fact that you can't use the microwave leads me to believe it's a keypad or control circuit board problem.

If you have the owner's manual that came with the unit, I would suggest you look there for a contact numer to call for service.

Otherwise I would suggest calling the store from which you purchased it.

Please write back with more details if you need further help.

My whirlpool microwave/oven combo is displaying a "DOOR" error message, and the microwave won't work. I have replaced a 20a bus fuse and all 3 door micro switches... It is still displaying the "DOOR"

When microwaves first got popular I used to be a helper with my next door neighbor who fixed them. I does sound like you should have covered it with those switches. If you close the door very slowly, pulling back on the door see if you can hear all 3 switches clicking. You should be able to hear them easily. If you only hear the first 2 try pushing on the door to hear the 3rd. If it will click with pressure on the corners or in the middle then you door is tweaked, possibly from pulling on the door hard to open it or smacking into something on the edge. If you can hear all 3 switches and it still wont start then its going to be the sensor that receives the signal from the switches. I'm not sure how accessible those are on today's models since they make them as disposables now, back then they cost around $500 so they were serviced.

Try2910227 serial ywmh2205xvb-0 model arcing on the back corner were the rack sits.Is there a way to repair this seen is the unit was purchaced in June of 2011.

Yes, take the rack out and recycle it. I do not know why these micro-wave company put racks in the micro wave ovens. You get some insulation on the inside the micro flaking off next the rack.

The mega-tron tube is a very high energy transmitter. The energy will come out of the top inside the micro wave oven in a wave guide. Micro wave energy that generation by the tube is high frequency into Gega Hertz. You have a metal tray in side the micro wave acts like a big capacitor it stores energy in form of heat the next you know it look like Marconi is putting on a lighting display.

Leave the wire tie on a loft of bread and put in you micro wave oven to defrost. The next thing you might see is a load bread burning, instant toast. ----The use of micro wave were invented by the British before WWII. The mega tron tube generation very high frequency radio wave and these wave struck an object 100 miles away some of this beam energy would balance back to a receiver-----You have Radar.... I wish you and your family well being and be careful of micro wave ovens it can burn from inside out. GB you...stewbison

After closing door micro wave turn table continues to turn and light stays on after you open door and take out food.

The problem is most likely caused by a defective door switch, and should be rectified for safety reasons.

Whirlpool MH2155XPS - numbers on the clock display

Normally it's bad connections or "ring cracks" on the connections on the circuit board.

This assumes the display glass is not broken, which would necessitate a new control board.

(Note that a dark spot on the display glass is normal)

And it assumes that the unit was not hit with a surge, or needs other repairs, which we do nationwide for $39.95 in most cases.


Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number with suffix 0, 1, 2, 3, or 4 from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

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

Error code d kenmore model 665.60654 microwave

The letter "d" is indicating the microwave is in a demo/learning feature.
To cancel the "demo" mode press and hold "Kitchen Timer" for 5 seconds. Two tones will sound and the small "d" will disappear from the display.
