An F3 error code indicates that the keypad for the control panel is bad
or has a short. This will cause the microwave to beep continuously after
the set clock message appears.
On many models of
microwave oven means a problem with the touch panel, (tact switches).

F3 error in your GE microwave
means that the keypad/touchpad is bad and should be replaced. However, before
replacing it you can follow these step by step instructions to clean the
touchpad assembly and see if it works:
1) Unplug microwave 2) Remove two small screws from upper face plate 3) Remove screw on upper side of control panel 4) Life panel and pull out 5) Identify flat tape-like harness connecting
circuit card to keypad 6) Wipe down harness with an all-purpose wipe 7) Use hairdryer to dry remaining leftover
8) After this put the keypad back
if its not solved then replace it.

it's less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty.
I'd suggest returning it to the dealer or contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free. For more

The error code F3 indicates an oven sensor problem. The oven sensor is most likely the failed part. The oven sensor probe must have the correct resistance readings at specific temperatures. When the electronic range control (ERC) cannot identify the correct resistance of the oven sensor or the resistance is way out of specs F3 will display.
I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your oven.
