    Is your model number FMV145?

    If not, what is your model number?

    Are you in the US?

    Is F3 the only code that you see on the display?

    If you unplug the oven, wait about 2 minutes, then plug it back in and set the clock, does the F3 code come back on automatically? How soon?

    Does this code only come on when you press a certain pad? Which pad?

I would think you have a failed keypad.

If you (or someone you know) 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.

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.

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.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

HOTPOINT COUNTERSAVER PLUS RVM 1435 DISPLAY READS F3


"F3" on a GE / Hotpoint microwave means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

On RVM1435-series microwaves, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame assembly which comes with a new keypad.


In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame. That is a simple do-it-yourself job.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number (RVM1435XX###) from the tag on the oven here.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Then you unplug the keypad (as per the photo below) and move the circuit board into your frame.

HELLO. I HAVE A GE MICROWAVE MOD JE1860WB. THE MONITOR READ "F3" CODE. WHAT IS THAT?


Hello,
The F3 code means that the Key panel also called touch pad is shorted. This code usually comes up when when the Microwave detects the shorted panel continuously for over 60seconds.

To correct this error, you have to Replace the key panel also called the touch pad.

Thanks.

We are getting an F3 message on GE JVM1750DM microwave. After turning off power and then back on. It works for a few minutes, but then the F3 message come back ?


Hi

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 moisture

8) After this put the keypad back if its not solved then replace it.

Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

F3 error means that the oven tempeture sensor is open circuit. You will need to replace it.

I have already forewarned you about the voltages inside microwaves. BE SURE TO DISCONNECT THE POWER!!

Hoping you could give me a FixYa for that one :)
