Determined from whirlpool that the f2 display is from the control circuit board. the board's problem is intermittent and needs eventually replacing. not covered by warranty. determined that whirlpool has reduced the warranty for the electronic circuits in its appliances from 5 to 1 year. this is great for consumer confidence in whirlpool. have had trouble with 2 other new whirlpool appliances. probably will not buy another whirlpool appliance.

    Same experience. After only 2 1/2 years, first the Whirlpool microwave went out and about a month later the Whirlpool oven went out. First time in my whole life have i ever had to replace an appliance including washer and dryers. Never will i buy Whirlpool again.

    Same here but you know what they say, what comes around goes around, however; I don't think anyone who works or runs whirlpool will purchase a whirlpool so I am not so sure about that Karma thing. It's not really funny, it is ridiculous, they had so many problems with the one thing that almost everyone will have a problem with (MOISTURE getting around the key pad) it's about impossible that it won't get moisture and living in Florida just adds a little more fun to the equation. I will never buy a whirlpool again in my entire life. I hope others note what is going on and understand that losing money is not something any of us can afford at this time in life. This also happens to GE products and probably any product that uses these electronic key pads. They are not made to be used around water and moisture yet they put these on the things that are most like to get wet. Does anyone feel a bit used? Yes, they stopped the 5 year warranty, they had to fix too many of these pads and at about $225 each it could get expensive THAT Is putting it on yourself by the way. We have replaced our Over with GE so many times we paid more for the keypads than for the oven and they now do not make that size oven so we are not able to find an over that fits our wall that cannot be widened. It's sad to the point of being funny as there is nothing else you can do about it.

Microwave Model # MH1150XMS-3 F2 Error (Short in membrain keypad


"F2" on a Whirlpool means you have a shorted membrane keypad. It's not uncommon for it to be intermittent or partially operable, too.

On some models, you have to peel off the old keypad and stick on a new one.
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. It's here.

On some models, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame assembly which comes with a new keypad.

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame. That is a simple DIY job.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number (with suffix) from the tag on the oven
here.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If you have to replace the frame, you unplug the keypad (as per the photo below) and move the circuit board into your frame.

A code of F2 appears on the LED clock timer - not always, but peridically every 30 seconds or so. I unplugged the unit, for 30 seconds, plugged it back in and it worked for about 20 seconds. Then the key...


Hi,

F2 is a bad keyboard error code. Try this, unplug the unit, open the control panel and disconnect the ribbon cable from the control board, plug back in, if f2 comes back on the board needs replacing, if it does not, then the problem is with the keypad.

Whirlpool microwave hood combination has code f2 on touch panel. Model number: MH-1150xm


The F2 error 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 of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.

On these models, usually the membrane keypad is not available separately, so you would have to order and replace the control panel frame which comes with a new keypad (sometimes called "panl-cntrl").

The part availability and cost will depend on the full model number from the tag on the unit, and it will be one of these:

MH1150XMB0
MH1150XMB1
MH1150XMB2
MH1150XMB3
MH1150XMB4
MH1150XMQ0
MH1150XMQ1
MH1150XMQ2
MH1150XMQ3
MH1150XMQ4
MH1150XMS0
MH1150XMS1
MH1150XMS2
MH1150XMS3
MH1150XMS4
MH1150XMT0
MH1150XMT1
MH1150XMT2
MH1150XMT3
MH1150XMT4

You can order the part and find helpful exploded view diagrams here.

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame. That is a simple do-it-yourself job.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Then you unplug the keypad (as per the photo below) and move the circuit board into your frame.

Locks up and powers down during use leaves a F2 display on the clock window


Can't tell by pict for sure, IF this is a Microwave that is vented. Is it possible your vent it needs to be cleared. Sounds like possible moisture in the microwave, This would shut it down in the middle of a cycle. The moisture would happen from poor or clogged venting.
