Question about Whirlpool Microwave Ovens
The problem is either within the main control or the keypad. If I were a betting man my money would be on the keypad.
To test first UNPLUG THE POWER CORD.
If you take the control panel down you will see a 'ribbon' cable that comes from the keypad and plugs into the control. On the end of the ribbon are connectors that you can test with an ohmmeter while pressing a button. You can use the matrix below to see what reading you should get. For example when pressing the start key you will get a reading from terminal 3 to terminal 12 of under 1000 ohms. If the reading is other than that the keypad is bad, if the reading is good then the control is bad.
To test the keypad you need to test it when it is in the failed mode.
The part number for the keypad is 8172132 and is $51.65
The part number for the control is 8184747 and is $134.58
