SOURCE: have a ge spacemaker xl1800 - f3 error

I had the same problem. I removed the grill and opened the control panel as I read an answer from "GENE" on APP (Appliance Pros) that this indicated a short in the circuit board (TouchPad). I was going to replace the faulty circuit board but when I opened the control panel there it was......One wire harness had just came unplugged!! I plugged it in, reassembled and the microwave works again!

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!!!

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:

SOURCE: F3 error GE Spacemaker XL 1800: Model JVM1851CD.

F3 on a GE / Hotpoint microwave means you have a shorted membrane keypad (aka membrane switch).

If and when an 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 of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.

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 find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

If you would like to have us do this repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs nationwide.

Either way, we can let you know what your options and costs would be and send you other helpful info.

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 full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

Error code F3


On a GE, F3 means that you have a shorted pad on the keypad.

This is not too hard a job for a do-it-yourselfer, but if you'd like, we do this job for $39.95 plus parts nationwide.

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

There is also a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel. It's very helpful when troubleshooting.
