That would be "CS", which means low current sense.

CS Current Sense

Current Sense - Indicates control is sensing low current
(Amp) draw. Check components which would allow unit
to run but produce no heat or low heat. Current sense
circuit is active only when using pre-programmed pads.
Time Entry feature will by-pass current sense circuit.
Red wire from cavity T.C.O. must be routed through
current sense loop on H.V. Board.
Possible Causes:
1. Interlock switch (contacts 2 & 3).
2. Open thermal cut-out (magnetron).
3. Open/loose wire.
4. Power relay.
5. H.V. Board.
6. Magnetron.
7. Diode.
8. Capacitor.
9. Transformer.
10.Triac.

Getting a F-5 code on my microwave 721.80829500


The F5 error code indicates a humidity sensor failure. I recommend having the humidity sensor checked & replaced if needed.

Code f 7


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. It should cover an F7 error code.

A video is available here showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This may help:

F7 Error Code On Microwave Ovens With Inverter Board
MODELS: GH9177XL, GH9185XL, MH9180XL, MH7155XMS, & KHHS178L for example

An F7 error code could be an inverter board failure. Anything else that prevents microwave energy may also cause an F7 error, and must be checked. The technician should perform the following procedure to test for an F7 error code:

1. Check the magnetron.
2. Check the magnetron TCO (it should be closed).
3. Check the 3 interlock switches.
4. Check the harness wiring.
5. Check the electronic controls.
6. Check the inverter board.

Model number 721 82364200. Code F9 continues to show up. Seems to be connected to clock. Works intermitting. Makes a noise when working but is very inconsistent. Not sure what to do.


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

The F9 error code indicates an inverter failure. If you continue to receive the F9 error code after unplugging the unit for 5 minutes, the control system assembly may need to be replaced.

Note : Microwaves are not good do-it-yourself projects. Microwaves are inherently dangerous to service. Internal capacitors can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is unplugged. A microwave radiation leakage test must be performed on the unit following any repair.

Microwave is beeping even though everything has been cancelled. We already tried unplugging to reset....still beeps.


Chances are you have a shorting membrane keypad. It's very common.

Ever had the F3 error?

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.

Microwave Ultrawave with Hood fan


You are right. f4 means shorted oven temperature sensor (RTD). Check sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. Replace oven temperature sensor (RTD) if wiring is ok.
