We have recently purchased a Whirlpool Microwave Combo Model #
MH3184XP from the Sears Store here in Riverton, Wyoming. We are building a new home that it will go in. During construction, they got the installation instructions out to see where to put the vent and the instructions got lost. We would appreciate it if we could get new instructions. Also we have never found an owner's manuel. l would appreciate knowing where we could get these things ASAP.

There is a problem with the control pad. The membrane, or surface, of the pad may be broken or damaged somewhere, resulting in the F2 error code. This is common for Whirlpool microwaves.
Press "Stop/Cancel" twice and select a new cook program. Press "Start" to begin. If the error code persists, press "Stop/Cancel" again and unplug the microwave. Wait several minutes and plug it in. If the F2 code appears again, it requires repair.
On this model, this is usually a blown fuse or thermostat.
This model has three fuses, a 20A, a 4A, and a .25A and three cavity thermostats.
should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit
control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is
very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating
our Web site, we have a video
available showing how to remove a typical
over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
Accessing the cavity thermostats for testing and possible replacement will require you to
remove the oven from the wall.
so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have

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 with a one year
