I'm having no success with finding out precisely which part number I need to repair this unit. the microwave appears to run for about 20 seconds, then stops with a fault code of F1E5. 

 

The main oven unit works fine.

 

Multiple sources recommend replacing the control/ERC board, but the parts breakdowns I've found show multiple "control" boards. I've already tried OEM #s W10412514 and W10518560 with no change in symptoms.

 

I seek enlightenment.  :confused:

SUGGESTED CORRECTIVE ACTION PROCEDURE
NOTE: Cycle power (unplug oven or disconnect power, then wait 10 seconds before powering On) before starting any test. After powering on, wait 1 minute then verify that the failure appears again.
PROCEDURE: Before proceeding, press CANCEL>CANCEL>START to enter the Diagnostics Mode.
1. Enter the Fault Display Reset menu to verify the error code.
2. Make sure that door switch works properly: when door is open, microwave light is on; when door is closed, microwave light is off. Be sure that Sabbath Mode is disabled during this check. To deactivate an enabled Sabbath Mode, press LOWER OVEN CANCEL.
3. Unplug oven or disconnect power.
4. Check the following connections on Microwave
Appliance Manager:
a. Relay 4903
b. Connector P8
5. Check the following connections on Microwave Inverter:
a. CN701 b. CN702 c. CN703
6. If the door works properly and all connections are OK, replace the Microwave Oven Appliance Manager.
7. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
8. Plug in oven or reconnect power.
9. To check if the error code is still present, start a
cooking function in the microwave oven and wait
1 minute to check if the error appears. If error remains, then go to Step 10.
10. Unplug oven or disconnect power and replace the Microwave Inverter.
11. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
12. Plug in oven or reconnect power.
13. To check if the error code is still present, start a cooking function in the microwave oven and wait
1 minute to check if the error appears. If error remains, then go to Step 14.
14. Unplug oven or disconnect power and replace the magnetron.
15. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
16. Plug in oven or reconnect power.
17. Verify operation is normal. Re-enter the Diagnostics
Mode and complete checks

4. Check the following connections on Microwave
Appliance Manager:
a. Relay 4903
b. Connector P8

 

If that's the "main board" you referenced in your next post, there is no P8 connector (though there's a place for one), and I cannot identify a Relay 4903. At any rate, I've already replaced that board with no change in the symptoms.

 

All connectors have been checked and reseated multiple times.

 

Looks like the inverter is my next step. Thanks!

Yep, that did the trick!  Unit is working fine now.  :thumbsup:

 

I'm so old, I can remember when a couple-hundred dollar board was worth something to the manufacturer for a factory rebuild. Guess those days are long gone?  :sad:
