Behind the right front corner faceplate is a bag with the tech support info.
I used this and went through all the troubleshooting and got to the power inverter board. This board has the 2 red wires out of it that go to the magnetron. Instead of replacing the whole inverter module , I examined all the components on it. I found that there are 2 high voltage rectifier diodes attached to the transformer and 1 of them was not testing good. The diodes are UXC2B diodes.. Just clipped out the bad one and soldered in a new one.
Hope this helps..

My Whirlpool had the same problem (F7). I removed the keyboard assembly, revealing the relay board behind it. I wiggled each of the relays and found one that was loose. I unscrewed the relay board and inspected the solder joints on the other side. Two pins of the loose relay had broken solder joints. I resoldered the joints and re assembled the microwave. It has been working fine since the repair.

Is that F7 or just 7?

F7 would indicate a bad keypad or a problem on the control board.

Being only 2 months old, I would contact Whirlpool customer service for support here: http://whirlpool.com/custserv/index.jsp

Microwave plate turner keeps spinning even with door closed and microwave turned off


My microwave is doing this as well; It's a frigidaire model #FGMV154CLFA.

After using the microwave part (it is also convection), the light stays on in the microwave and the turner keeps turning.

And I've only used the convection part of my microwave a couple times and I'm not sure if I was successful. While trying to cook something in convection mode, I pressed convection, then pressed the temp i wanted, then convection, then keyed in the time I wanted the item to cook. The microwave started and the timer started counting down but the countdown stopped with 8 minutes left? I left it alone to see what would happen and it never finished so I restarted the process again.

PS..I've never gotten an error code

What is the se code that comes up on the oven, and it wount work? How can we fix this error code?


Hi longislandlu,

SE stands for "Sensor Error". This appears if the keypad is held down for longer than 10 seconds but if not held down this means that your humidity sensor has shorted and needs to be replaced. You will need to uninstall the entire unit and remove the outer shell to access the sensor that needs to be replaced. It will be mounted somewhere around one of the vent on the cavity of the microwave. You may contact Sears for the replacement part at 1-800-252-1698; M-F 6:30 AM-10:30 PM - Sat 7:00 AM-9:30 PM - Sun 7:30 AM-9:30 PM - All times Central.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

What does F2 mean?


The error code F2 on your GE microwave indicates "Shorted thermal sensor", this condition will occur if a shorted thermal sensor is detected continuously over 5 seconds on convection, combination or roast cooking.
. It takes a minimum of 5 minutes of convection run time before this code will be
displayed. More information on this error code, as well as other error codes, can be found at
http://www.applianceaid.com/micro_faultcodes.html#gemicro

Best of Luck with your microwave.

Its got a code coming up saying f7


Most F7 codes are saying the keypad is sticking. Try running your fingers flat up and down across the keypad then horizontally multiple times and see if the F7 code clears. You cna verify this if you unplug the unit and then plug it back in. There should be a pause of about 16 seconds then the F7 code will appear if it is in fact a keypad problem.

Code F6, E0, "Communication Error"


Hi. this code represents a key pad or control board malfunction. you will have to make sure the key pad or control panel connectors are connected tightly and securely. If the wires and connectors are secure, the actual control board may be faulty and you will need to replace it at this point.

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.
