Question about GE JVM1440 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Beeping and P3 shows

The microwave will start beeping and the code P3 will appear or it will say that the power level cannot be changed at this time. Some time it will say the power level is 10 and cannot be changed. I have never tried to change the power level. This will come on in the middle of the night and sometimes be going intermittently for hours. Other times it will not happen for a couple of weeks. HELP, PLEASE.

I would assume that trouble code is F3?

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

If the oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and please do not leave it running unattended.

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 repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

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.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your model number) for more information & help.

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

Hamilton beach microwave change power level hp-p100n30al-s3 how do I do that? I pushed the power level button and only beeps does nothing to it


Hit power level button then number 1 through 10. Most have 10 power levels. 1 is extremely low. 3 is usually defrost, 5 would be half power and so on.

I have Emerson Microwave #mw8999sv which has the Express Cook option- cooking 1 - 6 minutes. How do I cook for 1 minute 30 seconds, etc.? Thank you.


The owner's manual is here. On page 10 we find:

COOKING IN ONE STAGE
1. Press the POWER button; the Microwave and High
Cook indicators will light and “PL 10” will light in the
display.
2. Press the POWER button different times to set the
desired power; the display will show the percentage
you chose. If selecting power level 70%-10%, the
Low Cook indicator will light instead of the High
Cook indicator.
3. Press number keys to set the desired cooking time.
OPERATION(CONTINUED)
4. Press the START/+30SEC. button to start cooking;
the Microwave and one of the Cook indicators will
blink and the display will countdown the remaining
cooking time in minutes and seconds. It will beep
five times when cooking is completed.

Is it like someone is pushing the Power or Power Level pad?

If so, I would say your keypad is failing with a shorted Power (or Power Level) pad.

If you might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved. It's at http://www.microwavedisplay.com/keypad_replacement.pdf

GE Microwave JES1334WD Code -P3-


Are you sure it's not F3? That would be a shorted keypad ("membrane panel").

That's usually not too big a job for a DIYer, but if you'd like, we can do that for $39.95 plus parts.

If you or someone you know decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

One good test is (with power unplugged) to unplug the keypad, then plug the oven back in and see if the error code shows up.

It looks like you would enter the cooking time then press POWER 1 to 10 times. Once = 100%, twice = 90%, thrice = 80%, and so on, and "PL#" will appear in the display where "#" is the selected power level. On some models, twice = 80% and thrice = 60%, etc. and "80%", or "60%", etc., will appear in the display. Then press START. Did that do it?
