Question about Whirlpool Microwave Ovens
Your actual model number from the tag on the oven will be WMH1163XVB0, WMH1163XVB1, or WMH1163XVB2.
You have a failed membrane keypad.
On these 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 do-it-yourself job.
Here are the part numbers, depending on color:
Panel Assy, Control - Includes Lens and Membrane Switch
part number color
W10315775 Universal Silver
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering the part number or your full model number 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.
Then you unplug the keypad (as per the photo below) and move the circuit board into your frame.
