We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

We regularly replace these.

You can send your KOT-151S control panel assembly to us to install a new membrane keypad. The cost would be $64.95.

Or you can order an entire control panel assembly (plastic frame, stainless trim piece, keypad, and control circuit board) for $88.85, which includes return shipping.

SOURCE: model mh2175xst-0 The control panel with touch pad

This can be a sticker that glues to the panel and it is possible that the touch pad glue had come off.
You need to refix this to the panel if this seems to come off.

Hi, I have a Maytag stove and unfortunately have lost my manual. In the last couple of days there has been an alarm going off with F1 appearing on the display panel. Once at 5:30 am and at 1:00 am. Could...


With Maytag Ovens the F1 error means Defective touch pad or clock (ERC). This simple test will help determine whether the ERC (Electronic Range Control or Clock) or the touch pad is defective when F1 error code is present. (If you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself you need to arrange a repair technician to look at it for you)

1. Disconnect power to the range (unplug the range power cord or turn the power off to the range at the circuit breaker). It is very important that the power to the range has been disconnected, so please double check before continuing.
2. Gain access inside the control panel.
3. Disconnect the touch pad (also called keypad or membrane switch) ribbon from the ERC.
4. Make sure there are no lose wires, or anything else that may cause a short when power is turned back on. Assemble the control panel back the way it was.
5. Turn the power back on.
6. Wait for at least one hour to see if the F1 code comes back (usually accompanied by a beeping sound).
7. If F1 comes back, replace the ERC. If it does not, replace the touch pad.

Regards, Kat (please leave feedback, thanks)

Fan on microwave


The "hood fan thermal cutout" is designed to turn on the hood vent exhaust fan if the stove top temperature gets too high.

If that fan comes on and stays on, the hood fan thermal cutout may have shorted, needing to be replaced, or its driving relay on the control board may be shorted.

If that's the case, we regularly repair such control panel assemblies nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

You can find the Frigidaire manual that may help you here.

I have a Kichenaid microwave Model # KCMS145JSS-1 No lights, no readout, completly dead. Power source checked and o.k. Any thoughts?


I would suspect the fuse, the magnetron's thermal cutout / thermostat, or the oven cavity thermal cutout / thermostat.

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.

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 don't find yours, or if you want to look at it without disassembling the oven, you can download it here (just enter your model number).

Accessing some components (especially the oven cavity thermostat) for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall and take off the outer cover.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download Kitchenaid owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

Touch pad doesn't work


ut the tech sheet did mention that intermittent F7 problems are usually caused by poor connections. So I pulled the ribbon connector off the control board and cleaned the copper connectors using a pink pencil eraser. That whupped that puppy! But then I went out on another service call, same oven, different house. The pink pencil eraser trick didn't work on this one so I had to apply some of that famous Samurai gray matter. To identify the problem on this one, I cut power to the range and disconnected the ribbon connector that connected the touch pad to the electronic range control (ERC) board. Then I re-applied power and let it sit that way for 24 hours after which the customer was instructed to call me and report on the error code status of the oven. If no error code was reported, I knew the touch pad was the problem. If, on the other hand, the F7 error code came back, then I knew the (ERC) was the culprit. In this case, the error code did not come back during the test period and, using my keen, Vulcan-like powers of deduction, concluded that the touch pad was defective. I replaced the touch pad and problem solved!

Kenmore over the range microwave quit working 665.61639100


My bet is that the unit overheated and the magnetron is equipped with a thermal cutout (TCO or thermal fuse) and it blew,
protecting the magnetron.

If it runs dry, it will overheat.

But a microwave can be dead for many reasons.

It may be the fuse, which is usually located on the floor of the oven behind the control panel or between the door switches.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO) / thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the magnetron thermostat to open.

Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

When checking thermostats, if it has a hood fan thermostat, that should read open, as opposed to the others, which should read closed.

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

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

If it goes dead or blows the breaker (or GFI) when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

If it's intermittent or random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or a loose fuse holder, or even an intermittent fuse.

You should do a continuity test on the fuse while it's in the holder (with the microwave unplugged, of course) then turn the fuse by hand or take it out and put it back in, then test it again.

If you remove the fuse, then press the meter leads against the ends, it can allow internal contact to be made and make a bad fuse appear to be good.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

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.

If you do end up needing to take it down from the wall, you can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.
