Jenn-Air built in oven Model W188-C, Serial # 210764UC approx 1987
About one half cup of water spilled from the microwave into the vent holes at the top of the wall oven. Immediately after, all the lights in the electonic panel were flashing. There is little or no activity on the right panel where the numbers are and where the start/cancel pads are. Most of the water fell to the right. I got the digital clock working, but now it wont stay on. The only message on the panel is now DOOR. Please help.

For basic cleaning, use a non-abrasive cleanser or detergent and water. Clean the oven frame, oven door outside of the gasket and the gap in the gasket. (Don't clean the gasket.) With a damp sponge (with detergent if needed), wipe up any spills in the oven. (Sugary or acidic spillovers could damage the porcelain.) Wipe up any grease that spilled in the oven. Wipe the control panel with a damp cloth then dry. Clean the oven door with detergent and water. Clean the window or glass with detergent and water or glass cleaner. Use care to keep the water from seeping behind the window.
Next if you want to do a self-cleaning cycle. Remove the oven racks, the broiler pan and any other pans or items that are in the oven. Close the oven door. Press the Clean pad and then press Autoset(0) button to get the length of time to run the cleaning cycle. Press 2 or 4 to shorten or lengthen the cleaning cycle. After 5 seconds the door will lock and the cleaning cycle will begin. The door will remain locked until after the oven cools down (at least an hour after the cycle ends). Wipe up any white ash after the oven door unlocks. If you want the cleaning cycle to be delayed, press the Stop pad within 5 seconds of setting the length of the cleaning cycle. Use the number pads to set the time that you want the oven to end the cleaning cycle. (Make sure that it is later in the day with sufficient time to run the cleaning cycle.)
No you don't need to vent outdoors, and YES all you need is a electrical supply.
**I will add however, allow for an air cushion around the unit when it's installed in the wall as well as a vent or small gap with maybe a custom grill at the top. One of the most common service calls I get for self clean built in ovens is reseting or replacing safety thermostat's.
Hope that helps
Good Luck :)
F2 on most jenn-air ranges/wall ovens indicates a fault in the oven sensor or relay board. I'd first check the sensor, (part # 12001655) it should ohm out at approx. 1100ohm @ room temp. If it is OK, it's probably a faulty "broil" relay and suggest replacing the power relay board.
The board (usually seperate from the clock and just behind it), on earlier model jenn-air/magic chef/norge/maytag etc. where known to burn up. part # VO4100260. double check those numbers with your model number at your local parts depot or service provider, those are just the most common for maytag built units.
This is an older (Mfgr. May, 1987) microwave oven. Functions perfectly, works an looks good to this day, just no light inside. I searched a couple of websites looking for parts for this unit and appliancepartspros.com provided schematics of the product that I own. From those drawings, it was determined that the microwave oven will have to be slid out of the cabinet above the built-in oven in order to change a $2.37, 40W light bulb. Just a handfull of scrws retaining the oven and exhaust baffles and I'll get it out (onmce the New Year's Eve hangover disappears). The engineer who designed a system like this must have been on an Acid Trip. I haven't looked closely at newer microwave ovens, but I'd have to believe changing a crummy light bulb would have to be made easier than this during the preliminary engineering phase of design.
