My keypad says it is shorted. Do I need to buy the control panel or motherboard?
Answer Robert, You'll need the control panel WB56X10824, or at least that's where you need to start. Based on your post information, and the fact that the control panel is more exposed to the environment and usage, it is more susceptible to failure than the control board.
I need to replace the control panel on my microwave. Does this panel snap on in some manner or is it secured with screws that i cannot see without dismantling the whole cover assembly?
To remove the control panel to replace it you would need to remove 3 screws at the top of the microwave that holds the vent grill in place. Once the screws are removed you will then remove the grill. There will be a screw holding the control panel in place remove the screw and lift and pull out.
