The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour.

If that doesn't fix it, you have a failing keypad.

That part is not available separately, so you would have to order the control panel assembly, which includes the plastic frame with the keypad already mounted on it.

While GE charges $175.25 for this, you can get it for only $109.26 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.

GE Sensor Microwave model JES1456wf001 error code F3....how do we fix . Microwave comes on when plugged in and then reads to set clock and then it rings several times and we get an F3 code


F3 is a shorted key pad. To prove this, unplug the ribbon cable of the key pad from the control board and this symptom should go away when you plug the AC cord back into the wall. BE CAREFUL!!!

Key pad stop working


HI. this will happen over time if the microwave is used heavily and if it is over three years old. this key pad is attached to a smart board that you will need to replace. replacing the smart board will fix this issue.

Control locked


If yours is a GE JVM1640 or similar GE model, here's what the owner's manual says:

To lock or unlock the
controls, press and hold
CLEAR/OFF for about
three seconds. When the
control panel is locked,
an “L” will be displayed
to the extreme right.
