    I have the same problem - it followed my boiling peanuts on my oven for a 24 hour period. I thought maybe the steam from the boil caused some damage. Let me know if you have a solution!!

    I also have an F3 error code displayed and my microwave will beep intermittently all day and night. Three long beeps. Can you help?

SOURCE: How do you replace intermittent door switch on

Open the Micro door, and remove the air/Vent cover on the top if there is one, Usualy 2 screws on top or the middle of the cover.
Remove the screw holding the Controller board and then you will have access to the door switches 2-3 of them depending on Manif.

Also make sure you have the power unpluged befoe you do any of this.

Good luck!

My microwave oven stop working. buttons will not work and an error code F3 come up on display. Could you tell me what this could be?


F3 is a shorted key you need a new keypad control panel. For the JE2160 series countertop model this should be the part#WB27X10681

My kitchenaide convection oven is displaying the E1 F4 error.


KitchenAid ovens are popular for their classic design and simple user interface. When a problem occurs in the function of a KitchenAid oven, an error code will display on the clock as soon as the malfunction registers in the oven's memory. Each code corresponds to a particular type of malfunction. Most can be corrected by disconnecting the power supply for one minute and then restarting. If the code persists, either replace the indicated part or contact a service center. F0/F1
  • The F0 and F1 codes refer to electrical issues. If the code appears as only two digits, the problem is a transistor failure, so you must replace the electronic range control (ERC). If the code displays four digits, it will read F0-E0, which indicates a failure switching from analog to digital, or F1-E1, which refers to a safety flip-flop. Both problems require the replacement of the ERC.
  • F2/F3/F4
  • The F2, F3 and F4 codes refer to problems with the oven temperature sensor or the keypad. If you see the two-digit F2 code, it means your keypad has shorted and the ERC must be replaced. The four-digit F2-E0 code means that the oven temperature is too high. Test the door lock and the relay operation, and correct as necessary. A two-digit F3 code means an open temperature sensor or thermal fuse, so those parts must be replaced. A four-digit F3-E0, F3-E1, F3-E2 or F3-E3 code or a two-digit F4 code means that either the oven is registering as too hot or the temperature sensor has shorted. Either way, the oven temperature sensor must be replaced.

    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:

    While cleaning it the vent began to open and close and the microwave would not shut the vent down when the keypad was used to end the cycle. Now it only shows F3 on its screen when we try to set it up...


    The "F3" error code means "Shorted key panel (touch pad)". The correction is to replace the key panel aka a membrane switch or a touch pad. The control panel in that case is just a plastic frame.

    Lights turn on and off, keypad is out of control, F3 Code appears in the display.


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

    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 please do not leave it running unattended.

    We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail in about a week or so with a one-year guarantee.

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

    GE Spacemaker JVM1430WDOO2 comes on by itself ~2min and F3 Code after


    This is almost certainly a failing keypad. The F3 code is the giveaway.

    If you want to replace it yourself you can get exploded views and parts here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

    Otherwise, we repair this problem for customers nationwide for $39.95 plus parts, and this keypad runs about $80-85.
