Your membrane keypad has failed. I'm guessing it's giving an error code of F2 also?

On the KHMS155LSS# models, the membrane keypad is available as part of the control panel frame assembly which comes with a new keypad.

Replacing this is 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 keypad 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.

You can get the control panel assembly here.

You can also find helpful exploded view diagrams at that link.

Just enter your model number (as KHMS155LSS# for example where # is the last digit) without the dash.

Frigidaire microwave ffmv164lsa constant beeping, with little symbol to the top left hand side of the clock displaying with the beep. Keypad not responding to presses. Unplugged the unit the problem r


Hey JT Tai, I appreciate your post!
The symbol at the top left hand side of your display could be child lock symbol or vent symbol. If it is the child lock you should be able to press and hold the stop/cancel button down for 3 seconds to release the child lock.

If the light is on for the vent I would seek assistance from a professional for proper diagnosis and repair to be completed on your microwave. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Cannot unlock Frigidaire microwave using Stop button..help


You don't say what model you have. Many models have an interlock. I would put the model number into google and look for parts. You should find a picture of the locking mechanism. From there it may be possible to determine the cause.

Lock function reset for model JMV8208BAS


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

The owner's manual is online here and it covers the child lock:

To set the child lock.
Touch and hold
ENTER/START
pad more than 3
seconds. CHILD
LOCK ON will
appear in the display
window with two
beeps.

To cancel the child
lock.
Touch and hold
ENTER/START
pad more than 3
seconds. LOCKED
will disappear and
you hear two beeps.

The Child Lock is on.

Your owner's manual covers it. If for some reason you don't have yours, you can download it free here.

CHILD LOCK
You may lock the control panel to prevent the microwave from being accidentally started or used by children.

Example: To set the child lock.
1. Touch STOP/CLEAR.
2. Touch and hold START more than 4 seconds. LOCKED will appear in the display window with two beeps.

Example: To cancel the child lock.
1. Touch and hold START more than 4 seconds. LOCKED will disappear and you hear two beeps. At this time the oven is ready.

Ewave panel is on lock


As per the owner's manual:

The oven operation can be locked to prevent the microwave from accidentally being turned on. All oven functions can be locked.

To Set: Touch and hold the CANCEL/OFF Pad for three seconds. The Display shows “LOCKED” and the oven beeps.

To Cancel: Touch and hold the CANCEL/OFF Pad for three seconds. “LOCKED” disappears from the Display and the oven beeps.

If this does not work, then try a hard reset: Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If it still fails, you probably have a problem with the controller.

We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so with a one-year guarantee. It may cost a little more if you need parts, such as a new keypad.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

It sounds like you press STOP two or three times to lock it. Maybe that (or another key) will unlock it.

The lock / unlock procedure will be covered in your owner's manual.

Or you can try a hard reset - unplug it from the wall for one minute, then plug it back in and try again.

If you don't have your manual, you can get one here. (Enter your model number without any spaces)
