Hi again,

For some reason I could no longer view your responses. In any case, your described problem indicates that the faulty part is the control panel assembly, would look like the image here and would be available from this firm.

Hope this be of help. Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

F3 - ( shorted key panel ), will occur if a shorted key panel is detected continuously over 60 seconds.
Note: It will take a minimum of 1 minute of run time before the F code will be displayed.

I have a GE SpacemakerXL Microwave Oven Model JVM1340. The pad is unresponmsive. When pluged in I get a line of eights and then get the message F 3.


Thanks for the opportunity to help! To see if this fault can be cleared, do the following:

  1. If your unit is plugged into an *outlet (most times, this is located over your microwave in small cupboards).
  2. If it is, unplug the cord and wait about 30 seconds.
  3. Plug your microwave back in and see if the panel now works.
  4. Go through all the initial setups such as setting the time.
  5. If the fault does not reappear, then you are good to go. If the fault reappears, you will have to call service or replace the product.
*If your unit is hardwired, find the circuit breaker and turn it off for 30 seconds, then turn the power back on.

If you find my assistance helpful, please rate my service. Thanks for using FixYa.com

Works but no heat


Possibly a blown fuse inside, or a defective magnatron. If you decide to open the unit, please unplug it first!
