Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
Unit changing modes spontaneously - becoming unusable and dangerous.
The microwave unit is installed above the stove and suffers from overheating, especially if there is a lot of steam. The unit dates from 2007 and we had the same repair in 2014. The steam kills the electronic control board which is in the door of the microwave. The symptoms were spontaneous switching between operating modes, which had become annoying and dangerous. The steps to open/replace are: Find a cardboard box that matches the open space below and wedge it in tightly as a support for the insert in the front door. The insert comes out with a few visible screws and “invisible” tabs along the top and bottom (5 each). Pry the thin metal housing open to release the tabs, using clothespins to hold it open at each location so the whole side comes out at once. Lay the control panel onto the support box taking care to not stress the 6-wire cable at the bottom of the side hinge. Unscrew the plastic covering over the control panel. Unplug the wiring harness on the board, using needle nose pliers to pull carefully out. There may be a release barb to squeeze. Remember to clean the inside of the window before reassembling.

I keep getting this msg: F9.Q touch communication. I’ve cut power off at the breaker and unplugged trying to do a hard reset. Unfortunately, the keypad works sporadically but still receive said msg. Is this the part i need to fix this issue?Thanks in advance!
For model number GH7208XRQ1

Hello Kim, Thank you for the question. The F9 Error code generally means there was a power surge and it may have shorted the relay board. Normally the Board, PartSelect Number: PS11745310 will need to be replaced. Thank you for your inquiry, good luck with this repair!

Do you have any instructions on how to replace this board? (part# 8206602) looks like i need to remove the door assembly to get to it. Note: Display lights up but none of the touch functions respond. Got an f9.Q error code before the display quit functioning completely. Display would flicker on and off during use for the previous week. Thank you

HOW DO YOU REMOVE TOUCH PAD FOR REPLACEMENT
For model number JE2160SF01
PartSelect logo
Hi Steve, Thank you for your question. This repair is not difficult and will give you a general idea on how to install the electronic control board. Before you begin this repair, unplug the microwave from the electrical outlet and use a Phillips head screwdriver to unthread the mounting screws securing the grill. With the screws removed, open the microwave door and slide the grill to the left to remove it. Then remove the control panel mounting screw. Next, lift the control panel up to detach it. Note the orientation of the wires connected to the back of the control board and depress the locking tabs if necessary to disconnect the wires. Then use a screwdriver to remove the screw securing the grounding wire and set the panel on a sturdy surface. Next, release the ribbon connector attached to the electronic control board and unthread the screws securing the electronic control board to the housing and remove the board. Prepare the new control board for installation by removing the protective coverings. Then make sure the switch cable is inserted through the hole in the control panel housing and then place the electronic control board into the housing. Follow the steps in reverse. Plug the microwave back in and your microwave should now work for you. We hope this helps! Good luck with the repair!
