F3 is typically a shorted touch pad switch.. You may need to replace it or remove it and check it for abnormalities...

My GE Microwave JES1344SK is showing the code -F3- on the digital screen and it beep three times every 30 second, the microwave won't start and any of the fuctions is working I need some help on t


An F3 code means that the touch pad has a short. The touch pad needs to be replaced. If you purchased the microwave new, get your receipt and the unit serial number and contact GE for the repair (1-800-GE-CARES). See http://repair.geappliances.com/ to find a repair center near you. There is a one-year parts and labor warranty on this part. You will need to get the unit to the GE Repair center at your own expense. (I'm assuming that the unit wasn't shorted by a lightning strike or other disaster.)

I hope this helps.

Microwave display flashing & beeping.


You have a failed membrane keypad.

On this model, GE doesn't make any parts available except the tray and the roller.

If it's in warranty, they will exchange or repair it.

It it's out of warranty, you're out of luck.

I'd advise you to contact GE Customer Service in case they may be able to help you.

Microwave shows F3


microwave quits working and F3 comes up on the readout - along with a series of beeps - pressing any of the buttons on the touchpad does nothing - The F3 stays there and beeps intermittently

Micro beeps 3 times with "F3" flashing on LCD screen. Nothing works.


If it's a GE model, F3 will mean a shorted key panel.

(If it's not a GE, please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you).

If you might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

BUT If you would like to have us do this for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.
