ALL BUTTONS DO NOT WORK AND THERE ARE RANDOM BEEPS - HOW DO I RESET THE WHOLE KEYBOARD?


It's not possible to reset it. You have a failing membrane keypad, and the only solution is to replace the keypad.

Since you didn't post the full model number with suffix, I can't give you a step-by-step answer, but I should be able to cover it all for you.

On some models, you order just the keypad itself. I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

On other models, you order the control panel frame assembly, which comes with a new keypad already mounted on it. This costs more, but it's much easier.

There is a YouTube video here showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Then carefully detach the membrane keypad strip:

Some connectors have a lock.

Then you remove your board (carefully since the display is made of glass) then place your board in the new frame.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

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

Error code F2


The error code "F2" that appears on your KitchenAid microwave refers to a keyboard failure/short on the front button panel or loose keypad connector

Attempt the following to clear error:
Check keypad connector for firm connection.
Press "Cancel" after the error code is noted, if error code returns after 60 seconds, replace keypad ( also called touch pad or membrane switch ).

Best of Luck with the microwave.

Starts by itself. beeps constantly when on. locks up in pan mode


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.

On many Kitchenaid models, the keypad is not available as a separate part and you have to order the plastic control panel frame / subassembly (depending on model number) which comes with a new keypad.

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

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 do-it-yourself job.

Then you unplug the keypad (as per the photo below) and move the circuit board into your frame.

If you would like us to replace your keypad for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part cost, or you can buy the part and send it in with your controller.

This is an over the range microwave if I guess correctly. ( I couldn't find the model at KitcheAid)

The computer board is no longer sealed and has gotten wet from steam coming off of food being cooked below it. You need the computer control board replaced. My parent's GE over the range microwave had similar problems a couple times.

Microwave is beeping, lock comes on, F2, just keeps beeping by itself


F2 on a KitchenAid mike usually means a Keypad short. Beware if it is a KHMS155LSS, it can self start on its own with a KeyPad short. A real stunning defect.

Kitchenaid always shows "CLOCK SET", I think keypad is STUCK


F2 on a newer Whirlpool / Kitchenaid microwaves means you have 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 leave the door open when it's not in use, and please do not leave it running unattended.

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 repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

But please note that for some models, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame which comes with a new keypad.

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.

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.
