Question about Microwave Ovens
Actually, that's not a full Kenmore model number.
If you'll check the tag on the unit, it should be 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########.
But the 665 prefix means it's made for Whirlpool for Kenmore and so F2 would mean a shorting membrane keypad.
In some models, the membrane keypad is available separately. This is a bit of a job.
In others, it is not, but the frame can be replaced, and it comes with a new keypad, and is a pretty easy do it yourself job.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please include your full model number from the tag in or on the unit) for a free estimate and free tips & do-it-yourself advice.

F6 appears to be a relay failure on the main board, but it may be a door switch or door switch mount.
This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.
Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.
There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door hooks latch when you close the door.
The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.
Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. Other times, it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.
