I don't know of anyway to repair the keypad. Usually replacement (of the keypad/control console) is the only option. But you might want to remove the ribbon cable that connects the keypad to the control board behind it, clean it with a degreaser (like Fantastic or 409), dry it, and re-insert it, and then try again. (Remember to unplug the microwave oven first before you try that!)
The Keypad is either faulty, or disconnected. Open the case, and remove the screws, holding the outer shell on. Inside, there should be a small board that covers the Keypad. Check to see if there is a ribbon cable, or some other type of connection going from the board to another part of the microwave. If all of the wires are connected, then you will probably need to replace the keypad.
TOUCH PANEL & MICROCOMPUTER BOARD TEST FOR WHIRLPOOL....
The microwave oven may be provided with a self diagnostic routine that can be operated
through the touch pad keyboard. To enter the self-diagnostic routine:
1.While pressing the CANCEL keypad: a) Open the oven door. b) Unplug the microwave oven for 2-seconds and plug it back in. c) Release the CANCEL keypad and close the oven door. You will see the following display.
CHART NOTE: The humidity sensor test results will appear on the display after 8-seconds.If the tests are successful, "OK " will be displayed. If one or more of the tests fail, "ERR " will be displayed.. 2.When a keypad is pressed, a number according to the test chart will be displayed. When no keypad is pressed, a blank "O" (square) is displayed...
POWER FAILURE & FAILURE CODES Power Failure: After a power failure, the WELCOME screen will be displayed.
F2 Keyboard Failure: Refer to the Tech Sheet and conduct a touch panel continuity test.
F3 Humidity Sensor Failure: Refer to the Tech Sheet and test the sensor.
F6 Microwave Relay Failure: Check the microwave relay.
F7 Microcomputer Board Failure: Change the microcomputer board.
My Kenmore Elite microwave (don't have the model number in front of me) also mysteriously locked its own keypad (we were sitting in an adjacent room, heard a strange beep, and got up to find the LED reading "Locked."). I pressed and held down the Stop/Clear button for ~10 seconds and it returned to normal.
I couldn't find those exact trouble codes, but a common problem is when the controller gets damp, either from steam rising from the cooktop or someone spraying cleaner directly on the keypad.
Cleaners should always be sprayed on a soft cloth, then wipe the keypad with the cloth.
Also, GE / Samsung codes of F1, F2 and F3 may be the same since Samsung makes GE microwaves.
Those would mean trouble with the temperature sensor, keypad, or control panel.
Assuming your control panel is clean and dry, it may be time to call for service.
If this has a controller that runs a microwave and an oven, then the problem F2 means a temperature related fault such as a bad temp sensor / thermostat or a defect in the control board.
If it's just a microwave, then the problem is likely a failing keypad. In many cases, those can be replaced economically.
If you repost with your exact model number (62622 is not a complete model number) then we can advise you further and more specifically.
