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

    Unfortunately, GE is not showing any parts for this model besides the tray and roller.

    GE Customer Service is here, and maybe they can explain why they haven't made a parts list available to parts distributors yet.

    If we could get parts, we'd be happy to fix it for you or help you do it yourself.

    Please let us know what GE says.

    I asked GE about this, and they said to take it back to where you bought it.
    That's all they said.
    I guess the message here is: don't buy GE.

F3 code


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).

Replace the switch panel to fix the fault.


Hope this helps.

My GE microwave is beeping and the display says F3


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

We would need your model number to give you more specific info, part ordering info, and en estimate if needed.

Simply contact me here with your model number and symptoms for free help.

On some models, the membrane keypad is peeled off and a new one stuck on.

In other models, the plastic frame must be replaced, and it comes with a keypad already installed.

F3 error code ge microwave


No, unfortunately the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part on this model.

You would have to order the control panel frame, which comes with a new keypad already installed.

The part number is WB07X10883 and you can get it for $86.82 here.

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame. That is a simple do-it-yourself job.

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.

Some connectors on the relays may have a lock:

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


Unfortunately, it appears that GE did not make that model to be repaired.

According to the owner's manual, there is a one year warranty.

After that, GE offers no support for it, but they sometimes make exception is people raise heck with Customer Service.

Good luck.

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!!!
