Question about Whirlpool Kitchen Ranges

Display reads F2

After removing control console glass to clean and then reinstalling the console glass, the electronic display reads F2. What do I need to do - not in troubleshooting area of manual. The range was bought in 1997.

    I did turn off the power to the range for a long time and when I turned it back on F2 was once again in the electronic display. It will not let me set the clock, use the timer, etc - none of the controls on the keypad work.

Have you tried a hard reset and left unit powered off for few hours?

    F2 - E0

    Shorted keypad (also called touch pad)


    1. Check keypad connector for firm connection (keypad connects to control
    board).

    2. Press CANCEL. If error code returns after 60 seconds, replace keypad
    (also called touch pad or membrane switch). Some models incorporate keypad
    in to control board as one unit. In this case, replace control board (also
    called ERC or clock).

The time display numbers are very dim and I can hardly read them.


There are two main causes for this dimming:

1. Dust & other particle buildup on the front of the display glass and the rear of the display window. This can be cleaned.

Cleaning the display is easy, but you need to be careful so you don't break the glass.

First you would unplug the microwave or turn off its breaker.

Then see the video here that shows you how to remove your control panel assembly in less than 5 minutes.

Next, disconnect the keypad strip as shown in the photo below, then remove the screws that hold your circuit board in the plastic frame.

6c2e7e2.jpg
Then carefully (since the display is made of glass) remove your circuit board.

Using a soft cloth (since paper towels can scratch) lightly dampened with non-ammonia cleaner (since ammonia can damage some polycarbonate plastics), gently wipe off the front of the glass.

Then gently wipe off the back side of the plastic display window in the plastic control panel frame.

Reassemble, reinstall, and power it up, and it should be brighter, sometimes a whole lot brighter!

If that does not brighten it up enough, then...

2. Your vacuum display tube is wearing out and either the VFD display tube or the whole control circuit board must be replaced, depending on your model number, which you didn't mention.

If you'll contact me with your model number, I can give you an estimate and free do it yourself info.

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

F2 code


Hi, F2 code on the Kenmore indicates a problem with either of the control board and the user interface board. Run the console and indicators diagnostic test mode to find out.

Console and Indicators Diagnostic Test Mode Activation
  1. While in standby mode press the following button sequence within four seconds: SOIL LEVEL>WASH RINSE TEMP>SOIL LEVEL>WASH RINSE TEMP
  2. Press START within five seconds when "dt" shows on the display. All indicators in display are lit and "88" is displayed.
  3. Press START again. The two-digit display and the status indicators turn off while all other indicators remain lit.
  4. Press START again. The two-digit display and the status indicators turn on while all other indicators remain lit.
  5. Rotate the WASH CYCLE selector back and forth. The indicators will switch on an off.
  6. Press the buttons to check the functions. The indicators switch on and off and a beeping sound will be heard when a button is pressed.
  7. Press STOP or POWER button to exit diagnostic test mode.
  8. If no indicators light up or if no beeping sound is heard when a button is pressed or if some buttons do not light up indicators when pressed, check the control board, the user interface board, and the connection between them.
  • Unplug the machine.
  • Remove the three screws on the back of the console.
  • Lift the console off the cabinet.
  • The control board is located on the right side of the console viewed from the front of the machine. Disconnect the middle wiring harness connector on the right side of the control board near the pressure transducer hose.
  • Clean the connector and the terminals thoroughly with brush and alcohol.
  • Reconnect and disconnect the connector several times.
  • Reinstall the console and reconnect power.
  • If the problem is not resolved, replace the user interface board.
  • If the problem is still not resolved with the replacement of the user interface board, replace the control board. You may also replace both board at the same time and keep the old good board as a spare.
Take care

The brightness of the display panel on the GE XL1800 is so dull I cannot even read it. How do you increase brightness?


There are two main causes for this:

- Dust & other particle buildup on the front of the display gass and the rear of the display window. This can be cleaned.

- Your vacuum display tube is wearing out and the control circuti board must be replaced.

Cleaning the display is easy, but you need to be careful so you don't break the glass.

First you would unplug the microwave or turn off its breaker.

Then see the video here that shows you how to remove your control panel assembly in less than 5 minutes.

Next, disconnect the keypad strip as shown in the photo below, then remove the screws that hold your circuit board in the plastic frame.

Then carefully (since the display is made of glass) remove your circuit board.

Using a soft cloth (since paper towels can scratch) lightly dampened with non-ammonia cleaner (since ammonia can damage some polycarbonate plastics), gently wipe off the front of the glass.

Then gently wipe off the back side of the plastic display window in the plastic control panel frame.

Reassemble, reinstall, and power it up, and it should be brighter, sometimes a whole lot brighter!

If that does not brighten it up enough, then you will need to replace the entire circuit board, since the display tube on this brand is not available as a separate part.

You can use the disassembly instructions above, and the board can be ordered by entering the full model number from the tag in or on your unit here.

For those with other brands, or whose model does not show up there, see this page for tips to finding helpful exploded views and ordering appliance parts and accessories.

mommaT, the code has to do with the keypad, key held down too long or stuck or shorted keypad. Have someone remove the key pad ribbon cable from the control board and clean the ends with an eraser. If that doesn't do it, you may need a new keypad. Catriver..post back
