SOURCE: error message on a whirlpool microwave oven

Hi,

The F2 H2 error code refers to a faulty hood/light switch. This is a combonation board located just behind the buttons on the left panel. The part number for the switch board is 8206049. Since the screws holding this left panel on are only accessable with the door of the microwave removed, I would recommend this repair to be done by a profressional repair person.

SOURCE: A code of F2 appears on the LED clock timer - not

Hi,

F2 is a bad keyboard error code. Try this, unplug the unit, open the control panel and disconnect the ribbon cable from the control board, plug back in, if f2 comes back on the board needs replacing, if it does not, then the problem is with the keypad.

Error code F2


Per the tech sheets (page 8), "F2" error code means "Keyboard failure". Recommended by the manufacturer to replace the touch panel first and, if it would not solve the problem, then the control board has to be replaced too. Not the best recommendation but we have to follow it.

- The part number for the touch panel (aka a membrane switch) is AP3130765

- The part number for the control board AP3130764

Here are the break down diagrams for the Kitchen Aid microwave Model KHMS155LSS4

Shows SE and not working


The SE error indicates a short in the key panel. You can try resetting the microwave by unplugging it (or turning off the circuit breaker). Leave it off for a minute or so. If the code recurs, check if the microwave is under warranty. If it is still covered by the warranty, contact Samsung for repairs. If it is out of warranty, decide if it is worth sending the microwave in for repairs. (You'll have to pay a fee for diagnosing the problem; that will be applied to the actual repairs if you have the unit fixed.)

I hope this helps.

Whirlpool mircowave model MH3184XP the display reads F2



There is a problem with the control pad. The membrane, or surface, of the pad may be broken or damaged somewhere, resulting in the F2 error code. This is common for Whirlpool microwaves.


Press "Stop/Cancel" twice and select a new cook program. Press "Start" to begin.

If the error code persists, press "Stop/Cancel" again and unplug the microwave. Wait several minutes and plug it in. If the F2 code appears again, it requires repair.


Replacement membranes can be found online


http://www.appliancepartspros.com/whirlpool-panel-asy-control-8205376-ap3775860.html


but the internals of a microwave are dangerous, having high voltages even when unplugged. With the cost of parts and labour from a service tech, you may be best buying a new oven.

Whirlpool Microvave Vent Model GH7208XRQ


It's better to reply back instead of starting a new thread.

Unplugging it for a while and then plugging it back in is how you reset it.

I put in a message to Whirlpool technical to see if they can tell me what this code is. I'll reply back when I find out.
