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.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

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.

If you would like to have us do this for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

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

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.

I have a Kenmore over the stove microwave model #66560652000. Working fine the night before, came in from work yesterday and it was beeping 3 short beeps on the screen was sim auto enter: time them...


You have a shorting 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.

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.

You can order parts by entering your part number here.

These are the part numbers by color:

8205638 SWITCH, MEMBRANE WHITE
8183551 SWITCH, MEMBRANE BLACK
8183552 SWITCH, MEMBRANE BISCUIT
8183553 SWITCH, MEMBRANE ALMOND

If you would like to have us do this repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs nationwide.

For this model, the keypad would run an additional $75.

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.

It's actually a pretty easy 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.

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

Then carefully (since the display is made of glass) move your circuit board to the new frame, and reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.

The part number to order is 8205031 (formerly 8204739) and you can get it here for $140.37 plus shipping.

You can also find helpful exploded view diagrams at that link.
