HI,

The F2 Error code means the oven has detected an excess temperature condition. Most often this is due to a bad temperature sensor - the sensor costs about $75 from an online repair site.
How to remove and replace the temperature sensor. In most GE ovens, when you open the door, you'll see the rod-shaped temperature sensor sticking out of the back wall at the upper left. It's about six inches long and a bit more than 1/8" in diameter, held in place with two screws.

Turn off the circuit breaker (built-in ovens) or unplug the range before attempting the replacement.

The replacement sensor will come with instructions, but basically it's a matter of removing the sensor, pulling out the wires to where they are connected and disconnecting them. You may have to snip. The replacement sensor will come with high-temp wire nuts to hold the new connection. Polarity doesn't matter; it's a straight resistance thermocouple. Hook it up, be sure you poke the connections back far enough so that they're on the other side of the thermal insulation and not resting against the back of the oven.


Hope this information helps.

God Bless.

What doesl f2 mean on the display

The "F2" on a microwave can mean that the touch pad has a problem. Once I saw that message on a stove. The technician told me to press the "stop/cancel" button two times to reset the electronics. That fixed it. The electronics inside the microwave are usually timers and they adjust the strength of the microwaves for cooking. The best thing to do if the stop/cancel trick does not work, is to look at the owner's manual. If there is nothing there referring to that code, then copy the model number from the microwave (usually inside the door panel or sometimes at the back of the unit) and go to the manufacturer's website. Look for support, enter the required information and find out what the code really means.

Many times, it is better to let a professional take care of a repair on a microwave. If you leave something loose or not properly installed, you could endanger your health with microwaves hitting you improperly. Always be careful when working with this type of equipment.

My kitchenaide convection oven is displaying the E1 F4 error.

KitchenAid ovens are popular for their classic design and simple user interface. When a problem occurs in the function of a KitchenAid oven, an error code will display on the clock as soon as the malfunction registers in the oven's memory. Each code corresponds to a particular type of malfunction. Most can be corrected by disconnecting the power supply for one minute and then restarting. If the code persists, either replace the indicated part or contact a service center. F0/F1
  • The F0 and F1 codes refer to electrical issues. If the code appears as only two digits, the problem is a transistor failure, so you must replace the electronic range control (ERC). If the code displays four digits, it will read F0-E0, which indicates a failure switching from analog to digital, or F1-E1, which refers to a safety flip-flop. Both problems require the replacement of the ERC.
  • F2/F3/F4
  • The F2, F3 and F4 codes refer to problems with the oven temperature sensor or the keypad. If you see the two-digit F2 code, it means your keypad has shorted and the ERC must be replaced. The four-digit F2-E0 code means that the oven temperature is too high. Test the door lock and the relay operation, and correct as necessary. A two-digit F3 code means an open temperature sensor or thermal fuse, so those parts must be replaced. A four-digit F3-E0, F3-E1, F3-E2 or F3-E3 code or a two-digit F4 code means that either the oven is registering as too hot or the temperature sensor has shorted. Either way, the oven temperature sensor must be replaced.

    I have a one touch microwave & have misplaced the manual. The code F2 keeps coming up on the display. What does this mean?

    F2 on a Whirlpool microwave means you have a shorted 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 please do not leave it running unattended.

    Please reply back with your full model number from the tag in or on the unit so we can help you with an estimate or free DIY tips.

    Will not operate. displays f2

    F2 means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

    On some models, you can get the membrane keypad replaced by a servicer or your can do it yourself, but on some models, you would have to order a new control panel frame which comes with a new keypad.

    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.

    63792 reports F2 error as well

    An F2 error on these is a shorted keypad (either the main keypad or the transparent one in front of the tocuh screen). In some cases, this is a pretty easy do-it-yourself repair. Please contact me for an estimate and DIY tips.

    NOTE: The FixYa system is not currently notifying me when folks reply to my posts, so please contact me directly for FREE help & do-it-yourself advice.

    The microwave is displaying "-F2-" on its screen and will not otherwise work. What do you think the problem is?

    It is a bad keyboard error code. Try this, unplugg the unit, open the control panel and disconnect the ribbon cable from the control board, plugg back in, if f2 comes back on the board needs replacing, if it does not, then the problem is with the keypad.
    F2 means you have a shorted membrane keypad, which would have to be replaced.

    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.

    There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
    good luck
    dont forget to rate the service......

    Model mh1150xms3 displays F2 and touchpad stops working

    F2 on a Whirlpool microwave means you have a shorted 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 please do not leave it cooking unattended.

    On this model, 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.

    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 numbers to order are shown below by color you can get it here.

    8185286 White
    8185288 Biscuit
    8185287 Black
    8204739 Stainless

    My over the stove whirlpool microwave shuts off and keypad will not work shows F2 on the display... pressing of door sometimes makes it come back on

    sounds like the door interlock switch or the linkage on the door that activates the switches. Don't know your knowledge, you get to them by opening the control panel, if it's over 5 years old I wouldn't put any money in it, I imnagine it's made by Samsung in Korea.

    F2 code on display - microwave does not heat

    F2 on this model means 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 please do not leave it running unattended.

    On this model, the membrane keypad is available already mounted on a new control panel frame. It runs a little more, but saves a lot of time consuming and aggravating work.

    In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame.


    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 remove a few more screws and disconnect the wires.

    It is part # AP3673562 (same as 8205018) and runs $80.97 + shipping here.

    Kenmore microwave

    If this has a controller that runs a microwave and an oven, then the problem F2 means a temperature related fault such as a bad temp sensor / thermostat or a defect in the control board. If it's just a microwave, then the problem is likely a failing keypad. In many cases, those can be replaced economically. If you repost with your exact model number (62622 is not a complete model number) then we can advise you further and more specifically.
