Question about KitchenAid Microwave Ovens
The starting capacitor will be on the circuit board. You need to remove the control panel to see it.

I am beginning to suspect that you have a failing relay on the control cirucit board. It may have arced and gotten carbon deposits on the contacts, reducing the conductivity. This means less current flow and reduced or non-existent fan action.
After you've checked all this, feel free to contact me about a possible repair. We could have you send us the control panel assembly and the new hood fan so we can analyze and repair it. The second link above takes you to our site.

It's better to reply back instead of starting a new thread.
Unplugging it for a while and then plugging it back in is how you reset it.
I put in a message to Whirlpool technical to see if they can tell me what this code is. I'll reply back when I find out.

The F2 H2 error code refers to a faulty hood/light switch. This is a combonation board located just behind the buttons on the left panel. The part number for the switch board is 8206049. Since the screws holding this left panel on are only accessable with the door of the microwave removed, I would recommend this repair to be done by a profressional repair person.
