Hi,
F2 indicates a failure in the touch key pad. The part number for the keypad is 4393916 for white, 4393917 for black and 4393918 for almond color.

The part runs about $77.00. It can be replaced by removing the upper grille, then removing the one screw on top of the touch pad.

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

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

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.

A code of F2 appears on the LED clock timer - not always, but peridically every 30 seconds or so. I unplugged the unit, for 30 seconds, plugged it back in and it worked for about 20 seconds. Then the key...


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.

1. Unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
2. Replace the user interface board (UIB).
3. Replace the door control assembly.

Many of the error codes may be solved by power cycling: unplug microwave oven or
disconnect power. After one minute, plug in microwave oven or reconnect power.

i found this info on a tech sheet hope this helps, let me know how it goes... some of those electronics had 5 year parts warranty i would check that out....Also u might be better of buying a new one if its out of warranrty as some of those boards are expensive, obvioulsy unplug unit first try to reset it self.

F2 Error


F2 is a membrane switch error.

1. Unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
2. Replace membrane switch.
3. If problem persists, replace electronic control.
4. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
5. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power.

The answer to your question is YES. I would venture to say the PART is - but not the labor. You would need to read your warranty to confirm.

Whirpool microwave


check the operation of the micro switches on the lock motor. that they are open when they should be and closed when they should be. often they need to be cleaned or replaced.
if this doesnt help re post there is some board work to do, i would suggest a tech do this part though. always unplug range when you work on them! If you are good at electronics and stuff and would like to do it yourself then contact me for further support!
