Obsolete Keypad/Touchpanel Unresponsive or Causing E1F2? Don’t Scrap Your Whirlpool/KitchenAid Oven

Are you having trouble finding a keypad for your Whirlpool/KitchenAid  oven?  Don’t worry, we have a new keypad solution.  This page discusses an option that will keep you from having to replacing an oven which can cost thousands of dollars.

For $300 or less, you can have functionality restored to your oven with a custom built keypad.  Most parts for Whirlpool/KitchenAid ovens are available for a very long time but the touch pad seems to be an exception to this.  The control panel is made of a sealed membrane switch that wears out over time.  Once this part fails, the oven can become unresponsive, beep randomly or throw error codes like E1F2. Applianceboards can custom build new, more robust, membrane switches that stick right onto your original panel.

Defrost, Condenser, Temperature, or Other Problems in KSS, KSC and other Whirlpool/KitchenAid/Kenmore/JennAir/Maytag Refrigerators

Time for another quality blog from FixYourBoard.com!

Whirlpool Corporation and its subsidiaries have made heavy use of this control board in their refrigerators, but now it is failing at a high rate after just having been obsoleted.  Lists of relevant part numbers and model numbers are available at the end of this article.

Your refrigerator may seem fine some or most of the time, but you get a sense that it’s on the way out – intermittent operation of various features, drooping temperature, etc.  This is likely because the power supply on its control board is failing.  Other common failures due to this board are that the condenser fan won’t run and the defrost heater doesn’t work.  The objective of this blog is to help you identify if the control board is the source of your refrigerator’s problems.     If you determine the board is bad, be sure to visit www.FixYourBoard.com to send it in for repair and get it back good as new – at a fraction of the cost of buying a new part or model!

You’ll want to have DC voltmeter handy.

The built-in refrigerators usually house the control board in the top of the unit, and it is relatively easy to access from the front side.  You can always reference www.appliancepartspros.com with your model number to see where the board goes in the unit.  We recommend that you cut the breaker to your appliance before taking it apart so as to minimize the risk of seriously harming yourself or the appliance through electrical shorts.  Once you have access to the board and can comfortably probe it with your voltmeter, be sure to keep all the connections in place and throw the breaker back on.  Below is an image of the control board with highlights of the necessary measurements.  Your board will still have all the wires connected, but you can still stick your meter probes down into the sockets alongside the wires.

The first thing to do,  is measure the DC voltage across pins 9 and 11 on the P7 wiring connector.  The meter should read right around 12VDC.

Now, on the main control panel, press and hold the filter reset button and then immediately press and hold the power button.   Holding both in simultaneously for few seconds should send the refrigerator into Service Diagnostic Mode.  Press the ‘temperature scroll up’ button until you are in Mode 4.  Repeat the above measurement.

If either the first or second measurements yield a reading less than 11.5 VDC, the power supply circuit in the control board has definitely failed and needs to be repaired.  Go to www.FixYourBoard.com, click on the ‘How To Ship’ tab, print out the shipping form, and send it in!

How to Remove an Oven Control Board

If you own an oven, chances are at some point you will need to access the electronics behind the control panel.  Doing it yourself can save you some money and is easy to do on most ovens.  Regardless of what you may hear, the control boards on all appliances are repairable.  Many times, control board repair is the only option because they are obsolete or no longer available from the manufacturer.  A good example of a repair service company is www.FixYourBoard.com.

This posting shows the basic steps for removing a control board from a built-in electric Whirlpool model .  A similar process applies to Kitchenaid, GE, Thermador, Dacor, Jennair and many others. This process is just as easy on most other oven brands and once you do it, you will be glad you tackled the job.  All you usually need is a screw driver and a refreshing drink.  This post covers the basic steps that one should follow.

1.  Turn Off Power to Oven

This is the single most important step.  This is for your safety and to protect the electronics of the oven.  Removing power ensures that no wires will be shorted to other metal parts.   This is done with the circuit breaker.  Find the right one and make sure it turns off all lights in the oven and control panel.

2.  Remove Mounting Hardware

Front View Screw Locations

Side view of screws holding control panel

This whirlpool has mounting screws for the support brackets on the sides of the oven door.  These can be removed by opening the door and removing the holding screws.

3.  Take Notes and Pictures

Now, the control panel should be loose and you can pull it out to see what is behind the control panel.  This is great time to take some notes and pictures.  This is quick to do and you will glad you did once it is time to re-install the control board.

Behind Front Touchpad

In most cases as in this one, you will see the control board attached to the front panel.  Again, before you remove the control board from the panel or disconnect any wires, it is recommended that you take some snapshots before going any further.

Once the connections are removed and the control board is free, all you have to do is wrap it with some cushioning and put it in a box.  Most control boards will be fixed, tested and returned to your door step within a week.
