    Eric, seems you have it under control, knowing that the board replacement is optional, since your device is still functioning. Let us know your decision on this.

Will not power up after power outage


it contains two fuses one of 10 Amps and other for 500mA.
Replace 10Amps fuse with same type and rating.Best thing is to take this fuse and show it to the sale person of electronic shop.
Before you touch any parts of the microwave oven please disconnect the mains power chord and never touch the main power capacitor as this contains very high voltage even after disconnection.

Whirlpool GH5184XPS Microwave Oven F7 error, trips circuit breaker


Check the high voltage capacitor, it normally shorts, "discharge with screwdriver" unhook one side and set meter to ohms. Check high voltage diode tied into one side of the capacitor, "unhook from chassis ground" set meter to ohms and check for short, sometimes cracks, "must be replaced" If the diode is open meter does not have enough forward bias to check.

KHHS179LSS-3 touch screen has stopped working. When I un-plug it and then plug it back in, I get a "Touch Error" message saying 'Y High Fail 255 95; Y HiLo Pass 255 0; Y Low Fail 255 0; X...


There is no reset other than unplugging the power for a minute then plugging it back in.

If this in under warranty I would contact the manufacturer via the information in your owner's manual for a free repair.

If for some reason you don't still have yours, you can download Kitchenaid / Whirlpool owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

If it's out of warranty, we repair these controllers for $39.95, or you can order an LCD assembly (part number ) from the Pros here or get a refurbished unit from us here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

66993 pizza oven microwave oven combo pizza oven not heating error code f1 microwave part works


Hello, please use the chart to determine which stove you have. You will have to look at the model number. The first 3 numbers will be the series on the chart. In most cases an F1 error would require replacement of the electronic control. This part is commonly refered to as an EOC or ERC. However this type of repair is usually reserved for repair specialists.

KENMORE Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes – 362 Series (General Electric)
F1 = Stuck Touch Pad Key - Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC).

KENMORE - 911 Series (General Electric/Roper)
F0-F1-FF = Failed transistor in Electronic Range Control (ERC).

KENMORE Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes- 665 Series (Whirlpool)
F1-E0 EPROM Error - Electronic Range Control (ERC).
F1-E1 EPROM Error - Electronic Range Control (ERC).
F1-E2 U/L ERC Errors - Electronic Range Control (ERC).
F1-E3 Fuel Type Fail

Kill power 30 seconds-Cancel-Start/Enter-5 seconds-Should see “E” for electric-
“9” for gas-If code changes again-replace Electronic Range Control (ERC).

KENMORE - 790 Series Electronic Oven Control (Frigidaire)
F1 = Shorted Touch Pad = Electronic Range Control (EOC) Internal check sum error.
Runaway Temp = Replace Electronic Oven Control (EOC).

Kill power 30 seconds - if error returns - replace Electronic Oven Control (EOC).

Thanks

My KHHS179LSS-3 will not let you control microwave from touch screen un pluged unit plug back in touch error high fail low fail appears on screen


I was afraid I needed to replace the microcomputer when my KHHS179L touchpad was unresponsive. I was able to use the ADD A MINUTE feature, so I knew the unit worked. There had been a power outage of less than a minute to my home recently (I was unaware of this until I asked the kids if they had done anything to the microwave). I popped around on fixya.com and really didn't find an easy solution-my favorites. I loaded kitchenaid.com and found the answer in the FAQ's. Although the control lock out icon was NOT LIT-apparently, that power surge locked my controls. By holding the stop button for 5 seconds once and then aagain a second time, miraculously, my touchpad was restored> HOORAY!

Model #mh7130xe made grinding noise then in line fuse blew


Did you replace the fuse yet?

Did the new one blow?

If so, and if it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If so, and if if it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

If the new one did not blow, and the microwave still makes a growling or grinding noise, but does not heat, you probably have a shorted high voltage diode or a bad magnetron.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:

http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html (if it is NOT shorted, it's probably fine)
http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/cap_test.html
http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/mag_test.html
http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/xformer.html

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

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

Error Code


I would recheck the control board installtion that you made, as well as verify that you got the correct replacement. Also the board may contain static sensitive componets so you might want to make sure you are grounded when handleing the control panel. Good luck
