Question about Microwave Ovens
You didn't mention your brand or model, but I'd guess that it's a Maytag, Whirlpool, or Kitchenaid, and that your membrane keypad has failed. "F2" is their code for a shorted 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 at least leave the door open.
On some models, the membrane keypad is available as a separate part.
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 find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
If you would like to have us do this repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs nationwide.
On other models, you replace the control panel frame, which has a new keypad already attached. It's a pretty simple do it yourself job. Or we can do that for you, too.
Feel free to contact us directly with your full model number from the tag on the oven.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
