Question about Whirlpool MH2175XS Microwave Oven
We have a Whirlpool microwave model MH2175SXQ-1 made in 2007. The microwave doesn't come on and when you push any button it displays F6 and doesn't do anything else.
I unpluged it this morning and this evening I plugged it back in and it is working again? What is wron?
I'm assuming this is model number MH2175XSQ1.
F6 means the cook power relay on the control circuit board is intermittently shorting.
We regularly repair these controllers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid with a one year guarantee. Details are here.
Or you can order a new control board ("microcomputer" part number W10166798) here for $74.30 plus shipping.
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.
Then you unplug the keypad (as per the photo below), take out the defective board and install the new one.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
Some connectors on the relays may have a lock:
