SOURCE: Error code F2.Q1
Not sure what you mean by "Q1 Touch FMEA" above, but F2 error code indicates a bad keypad or sometimes a bad sensor.
Since it's brand new I would first consult the manual. If you don't have it still, you can download it from the owner center here: http://whirlpool.com/custserv/index.jsp
If you still have trouble, since it's new, it should obviously be under warranty, so I'd contact them (same page as shown above) to get it repaired under warranty.

F2 during the cleaning cycle will occur when the oven control senses an oven temperature above 915F-930F
If actual over temperature condition occurred: Look for welded relay contacts. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).
If no over temperature condition occurred: Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective. Check door lock switches.
Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit , not actual oven temperature.
**((The fans will continue to run if the control has been damaged, due to the high heat))

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.
On this model, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame assembly which comes with a new keypad.
It's actually a pretty easy do it yourself job.
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.
Next, disconnect the strip as shown in the photo below, then remove the screws that hold your circuit board in the old frame.
Then carefully (since the display is made of glass) move your circuit board to the new frame, and reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.
The part number to order is 8205031 (formerly 8204739) and you can get it here for $140.37 plus shipping.
You can also find helpful exploded view diagrams at that link.

F2.Q1 Not reading keypad
1. Unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
2. Replace the user interface board (UIB).
3. Replace the door control assembly.
4. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
5. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power.
Many of the error codes may be solved by power cycling: unplug microwave oven or
disconnect power. After one minute, plug in microwave oven or reconnect power.
i found this info on a tech sheet hope this helps, let me know how it goes... some of those electronics had 5 year parts warranty i would check that out....Also u might be better of buying a new one if its out of warranrty as some of those boards are expensive, obvioulsy unplug unit first try to reset it self.

Well I found three all same series... If it's occasional I'd leave it 'till was always on? Anyway .....
F2 - E0 Shorted keypad Replace Electronic Range Control/Clock (ERC)
F2 Oven temperature sensor shorted Replace oven temperature sensor
F2 Temperature runaway detected (Bake/Broil: 600 - 700 F; Clean: 930 - 1000 degrees F). Sounds alarm and resets to non-cook mode. Check relay board for stuck contacts. Check oven temperature sensor for normal room temperature resistance (1085-1097 ohms at 75 degrees F). Check sensor wiring connectors for a loose or high resistance connection. Check electronic range control (also called clock or ERC) functions Replace relay board if necessary. Replace oven temperature sensor if other components check normal. If failure repeats, replace electronic range control (also called clock or ERC)
