KHHS179LSS-3 touch screen has stopped working. When I un-plug it and then plug it back in, I get a "Touch Error" message saying 'Y High Fail 255 95; Y HiLo Pass 255 0; Y Low Fail 255 0; X...


There is no reset other than unplugging the power for a minute then plugging it back in.

If this in under warranty I would contact the manufacturer via the information in your owner's manual for a free repair.

If for some reason you don't still have yours, you can download Kitchenaid / Whirlpool owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

If it's out of warranty, we repair these controllers for $39.95, or you can order an LCD assembly (part number ) from the Pros here or get a refurbished unit from us here.

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

Some moisture has probably made its way into the touch pad. You might try heating it a little with a blow dryer on low heat to try and dry up the moisture inside the touch pad or just unplug it for a day or so and see if it will dry up on its own. If it does not start working the touch pad would need to be replaced. Hope that helps.

Touchpad is not working


Hello :

If touch pad has gotten wet, then allow to dry for several days. Avoid spraying cleaning liquid near touch pad.
Check for insect infestation. Insects (cockroaches most frequently) will appear under clear surface of touch pad or under readout window; they like the warmth of the circuit boards.
Place window mesh over vent to keep insects out.

good luck .

HI. Kindly, unplug the unit for five minutes. this will drain all power, and reset the main board. Once the five minutes have passed, simply plug the unit back into the power outlet. If the error continues, the touch pad should be replaced asap.

What error message is it showing? What is your model?

F3 on a GE / Hotpoint microwave means you have a shorted keypad.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

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

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

If you would like to have us do this for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.
