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

Unfortunately, that part is not cataloged for this model.

In fact, the parts catalog says it you have problems with this model, you must return it to the place of purchase!

Not very helpful, but please don't kill the messenger! *grin*

You might try contacting GE to see if they will help.

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.

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.
