I have a GE microwave JVM150DM2WW that doesnt do anything i was heating something up and it just stoped lights nouthing works


The main circuit board quit working. Replace unit. ITs cheaper to replace this unit than to repair it. By the time you invest the parts/labor for repair, you are over half way to a new unit w/warranty.

Starts constant beeping with F3 on the screen


I thought I was helping my daughter out by clenaing her kitchen, well the inside of her microwave was pretty bad and very hard to clean so I was a spray to loosen up the crusted on food. In doing so it started beeping and flashing F3 and now we can't get it to do anything. How do we saolve this?

F3 flashing on display screen..no buttons work!


I have the same problem. However when I unplug the microwave from the wall outlet, let it sit for 10 seconds, then weird codes appear on the top line. Reset the clock and it shold work just fine.

Spacemaker beeping loud and f3 message driving us crazy


The error code F3 indicates an oven sensor problem. The oven sensor is most likely the failed part. The oven sensor probe must have the correct resistance readings at specific temperatures. When the electronic range control (ERC) cannot identify the correct resistance of the oven sensor or the resistance is way out of specs F3 will display.
I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your oven.

Microwave shows F3


microwave quits working and F3 comes up on the readout - along with a series of beeps - pressing any of the buttons on the touchpad does nothing - The F3 stays there and beeps intermittently

I have a Tappon Microwave model FMV151F. The screen reads -SE-. It will not do anything. What does this mean.


Our 17 year old Tappan Microwave Model # 564878 quit heating. Everything else works. Hard reset did not remedy the problem. Any suggestions?

My microwave


Hello,

I’ve read through your problem in an attempt to find a solution to my own similar issue with my microwave oven. Other solutions (like unplug appliance overnight and reconnect to power source the next morning) did not work for my appliance.

Just as I was about to call it quits and go out to purchase a new microwave; I gave it one last try. This time, instead of pressing any and every single button on the keypad, I decided to press BOTH the "Stop/Clear" AND "Start" buttons AT THE SAME TIME. . . . . Voilà! This worked for me, but sadly, it's now May-2008 and I'm pretty sure your own microwave is long gone, since your posting appears to have been quite some time ago. Well, hopefully others that stumble through these pages with similar issues may find some assistance with my approach. Oh, and btw. . .I got this idea (which worked) from remembering the instructions on how to reset my cellphone. Many thanks, ~paul
