Microwave is 16 years old. Replaced it. Service call was going to be half the cost of a new one with no assurance that problem could be fixed once it was diagnosed.

You may need to replace the keypad. I found there was moisture causing the problem when we boiled water on the right side of our stove which is under the keypad. I let the microwave dry out for several days and now only use the left side of stove when we boil water and have not had the problem.

My keypad is nonresponsive. I unplugged the unit once, and was able to reset it and it worked for one heating. 2 hours later the keypad is now unresponsive again. Upon unplugging/replugging it again shows...


The membrane keypad has failed.

On some models, you can replace the membrane keypad. I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

On other models, the keypad is only available as part of the whole control panel frame. It's easier, but a little more expensive.

You may choose to do either yourself, or have it done for you.

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

My microwave GE Profile Spacemaker 2.0 keypad does not work, I unplugged it and reconnected it and it works at times for a while then it stops again.


You have a failing membrane keypad.

To help you further, I would need your brand and the full model number from the tag on the unit.

It's best to repost a new message to FixYa or contact me directly.

The keypad is part number WB27X10721 MEMBRANE KEY PANEL available for $37.09 here (it's $61.50 from GE!).

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.

First of all, you should check the end of the keypad strip for rough white, gray, or green deposits that can sometime interfere with conductivity.

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 disconnect the strip as shown in the photo below and use a soft pencil eraser to gently clean both sides of the end, then reinsert it and try it again.

If that doesn't fix it, and you don't notice any rough white, gray, or green deposits on the circuit board (moisture or mineral deposits) or grease, then your keypad is bad.

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.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

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

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.

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

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

That would almost certainly be a problem on the control circuit board. If the bulbs happen to short / blow out or if they are removed or installed while the microwave is still plugged in, there is often an arc which causes damage to the board. We repair regularly these boards for such problems for $32.50 nationwide.
