MH1150XMT-0 (whirlpool) partially dead control panel

I actually have an MH1150XMT-0, but that model dosen't seem to be available on the site... but anyway...

My control panel is in the process of dieing.. some buttons work, some don't and I can no longer turn on my microwave (I could when it started) but the start button and add minute buttons are now amongst the dead...

Most of the advice I've found here (and elsewhere) is about totally dead controls, not partially...

I'm pretty decent with taking things apart and such, but I can't find a catch or screw on the (apparently) modular panel and I'm afraid to just yank it off and look... any help?

    I have a similar problem, the control panel works intermittently, and when it doesn't it displays an F2 error code. Elsewhere on the net it said F2 indicated a shortcircuit. Can I simply purchase a new control panel and install? How easy is this?

In order, I would suspect:

- it needs a reset
- door switch or door switch mount trouble
- your keypad is failing

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour.

Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it so I can give you some advice on the other two probable causes.

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.

Maytag model mmv4203dw00 is showing a e5 and is dead in the water


Actually it can't be "dead" if a fault code is on the display.

There should 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.

It should tell you what the E5 code means, but I would suspect a defective temperature sensor or control board.

I have an older Whirlpool over the range microwave. 2001 model#MH6150XHQ-1 I went to start it and poof, it went dead. Was it a fuse? If so where are they located and how do I get one for it?

If you don't find your mini-manual, or if you want to look at it before removing the controller, you can download it here (just enter your model number).

Accessing some parts (the cavity thermostats) may require you to pull the oven from the wall and remove the 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.

Microwave Whirpool burned - model #mh6150xhb-0


It may be the fuse, which is usually located behind the grille or 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.

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.

A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

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

If the cavity thermostat needs to be checked or replaced you'll need to pull the oven from the wall.

Lights occasionaly flicker, panel intermittent


So it's dead, but sometimes the inside lights come on? Does the display come and go, too? If so, and power is getting to the board, this is a problem with the control panel assembly, which we repair nationwide for $39.95.
