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.

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

I have this crepes n things pan from nordic ware. The inside of the pan is divided with a smaller inner ring -much like a bundt pan. How do you make a crepe in it or do I use the outside of the pan and dip...


Heat the pan rings side down. When heated, dip the flat side into a tray of crepe batter and return to the heat. It makes marvelously thin tasty crepes and you don't need to turn them over.

I have a 12inch cooking pan. stainless steel nonstick. cannot use. non stick surface is comming off.


Howdy, unfortunately, when that happens it is the end of the service life of the pan. If it is a recent purchase, and you feel its a warranty issue, we would be happy to find the contact information of the company for you. If this is the case, please hook us up with the make and mode and we will get going on it for you.

If it is an older pan, there is no safe or practical recoating treatment available.

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?

Microwave turns on & control panel is frozen. F2&PAN error codes


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 not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame which comes with a new keypad.

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame.

That is a simple do-it-yourself job.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number (KHMS155LWH1 without dashes) from the tag on the oven here.

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.

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

Turns on randomly Reads: PAN and then counts down from 3 minutes


From the owner's manual found here or here:

"Touch PAN HEAT once. Pan will preheat for 3 minutes."

Sounds like it's doing it on its own due to a failing 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.

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