Whirlpool Microwave F2Q1 Error Code
« on: April 15, 2008, 09:57:53 PM »

Model # GH7208XRY1, this unit started displaying an error message F2Q1 intermittently and would require it to be unplugged to get it to work again. The error message indicates a problem with either the touch pad (which is part of the glass door) or the user interface board (which is behind the glass door) or even a loose connection. Either way, the door must be disassembled to work on it. As long as all the cabling is connected and the ribbon cable is clean, it's a bit of a toss up which of the two components is causing the nuisance failure, but my personal experience points to the UIB having changed a handful of these already. Replaced the user interface board and now the unit is back up and running just fine.
