Been cursed with the 666's

I woke up this morning with a constant beeping in my kitchen. I walked in to find out that it was my microwave beeping 66:66 on it. I tried to reset thinking one of my kids was playing with the microwave and none of the keys would work. So i then unplugged it and plugged it back in. All of a sudden the 6's started beeping back onto the screen. I ended up unplugging the microwave all together and got my holy water. I thought i had been cursed and started blessing the whole kitchen. Later when i got home i plugged back in the microwave and after 2 minutes the 6's started beeping on the screen again. I then jumped online and was relieved to see that i wasn't the only chefmate microwave owner to have this problem. It seems that after about a year you will end up having the same curse! I was reading all the post and LMFAO!

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

The beeper will not shut off on my advantium 120 m/w


Is there a code "F3" in the display too?

That would mean the key panel (part number WB27X10467 key PCB assembly) is shorted.

The service manual is here if you or someone you know want to check it out and possibly do the work.

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.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

Whirlpool Microwave Hood Combination MH3184XPS-0 (October 2004), for no reason at all, this morning keeps beeping and running the power setting down from 10 to 1, and just keeps doing it in rapid sequence....


Ours just started doing this exact same thing this past Friday - 12/11/09. What's going on? The cook power just starts beeping all by itself and going from 10 down to 1 over and over again. It may stop momentarily, but then starts again within a minute or so - it's constant until we unplug it. We plug it back in and within a few minutes it starts doing it again. What gives?

Starts constant beeping with F3 on the screen


I thought I was helping my daughter out by clenaing her kitchen, well the inside of her microwave was pretty bad and very hard to clean so I was a spray to loosen up the crusted on food. In doing so it started beeping and flashing F3 and now we can't get it to do anything. How do we saolve this?

POSSESSED MICROWAVE!


wow.......... an exorcism may be in order.......Sadly your microwave circuitry is malfunctioning which is a costly repair. I would seriously consider trashing that possessed unit and purchasing a new one. the new ones are greener too, use quite a bit less electricity

Outlet works but the microwave is dead, no power at all.


I had a similar problem with my Whirlpool microwave. I replaced a fuse (after reading posts in this forum) and it's working again.  I'm not sure how similar your model is, but in my case it was an in-line fuse in a wire leading down from the main fuse in the upper right corner behind the control panel.

Chefmate microwave oven won't start, only flashes numbers.


Well I had the same problem. It made me start unplugging a microwave when it wasn't in use, which is always a plus.
When it does the whole 6666 thing, press 5 and then stop/reset. It usually allows me to input what I want after that.
Good luck people.

My Microwave flickers and buzzes


This problem normaly happens when the door is not closed properly for a long time and flashing and buzzing starts to give user a indication for same. Allthough it is not risky as microwave oven has safty door switches wich does not allow oven to operate while door is open. Take care and close the door properly before you leave kitchen..

Starting by itself


Time for a service call. Should not turn on by itself at any cause. Circuit board is my guess. May be cheaper/easier to get new microwave. My first one lasted about 15 yrs--and the circuit board (touchpad) died. Bought new microwave oven.
