F2 on a Whirlpool microwave means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and please do not leave it running unattended.

Please reply back with your full model number from the tag in or on the unit so we can help you with an estimate or free DIY tips.

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

What doesl f2 mean on the display


The "F2" on a microwave can mean that the touch pad has a problem. Once I saw that message on a stove. The technician told me to press the "stop/cancel" button two times to reset the electronics. That fixed it. The electronics inside the microwave are usually timers and they adjust the strength of the microwaves for cooking. The best thing to do if the stop/cancel trick does not work, is to look at the owner's manual. If there is nothing there referring to that code, then copy the model number from the microwave (usually inside the door panel or sometimes at the back of the unit) and go to the manufacturer's website. Look for support, enter the required information and find out what the code really means.

Many times, it is better to let a professional take care of a repair on a microwave. If you leave something loose or not properly installed, you could endanger your health with microwaves hitting you improperly. Always be careful when working with this type of equipment.

What does F2 mean?


The error code F2 on your GE microwave indicates "Shorted thermal sensor", this condition will occur if a shorted thermal sensor is detected continuously over 5 seconds on convection, combination or roast cooking.
. It takes a minimum of 5 minutes of convection run time before this code will be
displayed. More information on this error code, as well as other error codes, can be found at
http://www.applianceaid.com/micro_faultcodes.html#gemicro

Best of Luck with your microwave.

Kenmore microwave model 63792 displays F2 error message


The F2 error code on your microwave oven is a membrane failure.
It is recommended that you replace the membrane first & if you still have problems to replace the control board.

The microwave is displaying "-F2-" on its screen and will not otherwise work. What do you think the problem is?


It is a bad keyboard error code. Try this, unplugg the unit, open the control panel and disconnect the ribbon cable from the control board, plugg back in, if f2 comes back on the board needs replacing, if it does not, then the problem is with the keypad.
F2 means you have a shorted membrane keypad, which would have to be replaced.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
good luck
dont forget to rate the service......

Error code F2.Q1


Not sure what you mean by "Q1 Touch FMEA" above, but F2 error code indicates a bad keypad or sometimes a bad sensor.

Since it's brand new I would first consult the manual. If you don't have it still, you can download it from the owner center here: http://whirlpool.com/custserv/index.jsp

If you still have trouble, since it's new, it should obviously be under warranty, so I'd contact them (same page as shown above) to get it repaired under warranty.


We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
