The model number would have helped us give you specific advice, but without it we'll give you generic advice and say it may be a door switch issue.

See our help file on door switches here.

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

SOURCE: GE Spacemaker oven keeps flashing "message - hit button for messa

If you have an "options" pad, press that and you should be able to get to the message sub-menu. If not, you may have gotten too much moisture in the key pad when you cleaned it and it will either need to be replaced or might possibly return to normal after drying out completely for a few days

F3 or F4
Open or shorted oven temperature sensor (RTD)

Check sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. Replace oven temperature sensor (RTD) if wiring is ok.

Keep us updated.

SOURCE: My oven won't work. Control

Hi

Error code F1 means that an error with the keypad has occurred. Usually it happens due to loose ribbon cable on the keypad or the electronic control assembly itself going bad. To resolve this issue first, disconnect the power to unit and then gain access to the back of the clock assembly (Electronic Range Control/ERC). Now unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC, it would be a flat wire approx. 1 1/2" to 2" wide and make sure that the cable is not broken and nothing is shorted on the keypad. After this is done insert the cable back and then plug the unit back to check. If the error is still there then the electronic control board should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

We could probably help you if you would repost this with the full model number from the tag in the cooking cavity or elsewhere on the oven.
Excellent job on detailing the symptoms though!
Just be sure to include them in your repost, too.

Hi,i have a lofra max maxima oven and my stove,which i control by touch isnt responsing to me.please is there any solution?


Here is something to try:

This is from Lofra manuals

It's possible to lock the selected functions by keeping the "Key" button pressed . An acoustic

and flashing warning will activate whenever any changes to programmed function are tried to be

made. By activating this function it's possible to switch the Electronic Module off while the

function controls remain active. To deactivate the lock keep the "Key" button pressed a second
time.

If you still have your owners manual look up child lock. If you do not have a manual and the oven door is unlocked I really need a model number.
Thanks,
Kelly

How do I unlock the key pad? The display shows locked and I don't know how it locked.


Here you go.

The Child Lock shuts down the control panel pads to prevent
unintended use of the microwave oven.
When the control is locked, only the Vent Fan and Light pads will
function.
To Lock/Unlock Control: The microwave oven and Timer must
be off. Touch and hold START for 5 seconds until 2 tones sound
and a lock icon appears on the display. Repeat to unlock and
remove the lock icon from display.

My microwave is locked and i dont know how to unlock it


"Locke" meaning the door? or locked meaning the buttons don't work? If it is the buttons then you have the child lock on. Push and hold the "Start" button for 4 to 5 seconds, and it will unlock.
