Mmmm it's so easy,
First disconect the power, take the cover off, moslitly there would be 5 screws and two tab's on the top.
inside on the right hand side the magnetron it's a sylver box measuring about 4 in x 4 in x 5 in. It will have a plasic cover moslitly that would have to be remove first then on the magnetron there is 4 crews and one connector.
It should fall downard after.
If you have a power supply after the secondary , that may also be your problem.

Regards

Bob

SOURCE: My Ge SpaceMaker XL1800 Microwave Oven won't power on any more.

1.Check power outlet for working.
2.If it is than you have broken fuse inside the m/w.
3. To change the fuse you have to disconnect the power to m/w, take the upper grill off, take the screw on top of control panel, lift the control panel up and removed. The 20 Am fuse located behind this panel.

SOURCE: have a ge spacemaker xl1800 - f3 error

I had the same problem. I removed the grill and opened the control panel as I read an answer from "GENE" on APP (Appliance Pros) that this indicated a short in the circuit board (TouchPad). I was going to replace the faulty circuit board but when I opened the control panel there it was......One wire harness had just came unplugged!! I plugged it in, reassembled and the microwave works again!

Have a GE Spacemaker (Model # JVM1650SH05). Microwave works for a few minutes then displays "F3" code. How can you tell if the Touchpad or Control Board is bad? When it is working for those few minutes,...


Hi,

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



Part number WB07X10959 this part can run over 100 bucks. If you shop around you could get a good price.


Good Luck

GE JVM1440SH001 f3 error


see the commentaries and repair:
F3--Shorted key panel(touch pad), will occur if a shorted key panel is detected continuously over 60 seconds.
test the following:
1. Door is not closed (some models).
2. You waited to long (open and close door to wake it up).
3. Controller is confused (pull plug for a minute or two to reset).
4. Defective interlock switches.
5. Faulty controller or its power supply.
6. Touchpad or controller board contaminated by overenthusiastic cleaning.
7. Defective/damaged touchpad.

GE Profile Spacemaker xl 1800 JVM1860SD. Touchpad has stopped working.When power is turned on -get error message F3


F3 means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

The keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order a control panel frame assembly, which comes with a new keypad on it.

Whether your model number is JVM1860SD001 or JVM1860SD002, the part number is WB07X10474 and a link to various suppliers is here.

They're not making these anymore, so order while supplies last.

This is a simple DIY job.

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 you unplug the keypad (as per the photo below) and carefully move your circuit board into the new frame.

Some connectors on the relays have a lock:
