SOURCE: Microwave is beeping with F3
F3 on a GE / Hotpoint microwave means you have a shorted keypad.
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 for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.
Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

there is no easy fix to this units current problem it will need to be looked at by a service tech as the fault is an internal circuit shortout and needs to have the faulty circuit found and then replaced using expensive testing units

The GE problem is with the magnetron being to close to the computer. If your microwave runs for a few seconds to minutes then resets with funny characters on the screen, you can follow these simple instructions to fix it.
* Phillips screwdriver
* Large ziplock baggie
* 1 Unscrew the 2 screws in the top vent grill and remove it.
* 2 Unscrew the 1 screw above the computer keypad, then slide it up to unlock it and it will hinge down, revealing the computer circuit board behind the keypad.
* 3 Put a sheet of foil into the large ziplock bag and seal it up.
* 4 Then tape it to cover the whole circuit board in the back of the computer. You may have to let the wires stick out of the middle of your foil covering. The ziplock is to keep the metal foil from short circuiting anything on the computer, and the foil protects the circuit board from the small amount of leaking microwaves inside.
* 5 Lock the keypad back up and plugin the microwave to test it before screwing everything back together.
the way to keep it from happening again is to use the microwave with more caution.
