F2 on a KitchenAid mike usually means a Keypad short. Beware if it is a KHMS155LSS, it can self start on its own with a KeyPad short. A real stunning defect.

    First, do not leave this machine plugged in until it is serviced. If this is a KHMS155LSS, there is a very high probability that you have a keypad short. This defect can cause the machine to start on its own at ANYTIME; at night, while you are away, at work etc.

    Contact Whirlpool Customer Service and ask for Safety Dept immediately. They will most likely send A&E (Sears) out to fix it. Although they will fix the problem, if the keypad fails again, the underlying self start logic defect is still present. You should be under warranty if it is above model. Please be polite, insistent, but polite. With KitchenAid's pathetic quality in recent years, their customer service reps get more then an earful.

    Also, please go to the Consumer Product Safety Commision website at www.cpsc.gov and post a Report Unsafe Products report. This will help get this model recalled before someone loses their home or life.

    I almost had a fire this past Monday, Labor Day, 9/7/09 when my machine self started at 3 AM with a package of bacon left in it to thaw at room temp for the morning. What a smokey mess.

    Chinese made garbage. Shame on Whirlpool. Long live Hobart!, please buy back KitchenAid and bring back the lost quality.

Frigidaire microwave oven model # ffmv162lba seems frozen, pushing buttons does nothing


I have the exact same microwave and had the same issue with it having locked itself. I held the Stop button for 5 seconds and it unlocked itself with a beep. That was easy!

Keeps beeping shows F2


F2 means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

NOTE: 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 of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.

On these models, the membrane keypad is not available separately, so you'd have to order and replace the control panel frame, which comes with a new keypad already installed.

This is a simple do it yourself job.

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

Your actual model number from the tag weill be one of these: KHMS155LSS0 KHMS155LSS1 KHMS155LSS2 KHMS155LSS3 KHMS155LSS4

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 unplug the keypad (as per the photo below) and move the circuit board into your frame.

Ge Microwave model JVM1650SH05 Error code F3. Microwave turns on by itself and keeps beeping


F3 on a GE / Hotpoint 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 of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.

The easiest and quickest way to repair this yourself (it's easy) is to order a new control panel frame, which comes with a new keypad.

You can also find helpful exploded view diagrams at that link.

Microwave beeping and F2 error code


hi,
The F2 code is a keyboard failure. Since it's intermittent I would check for a loose wire/connection. open the control panel and reset the ribbon cable on the circuit board....


thank you,

Microwave will turn on by itself and display PAN on screen.


Does everything come on by itself or is it just a fan that comes on? If so, is it a convection oven?

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.
