F-3 means shorted touch panel pad. In order to attempt clearing the code yourself, please follow the steps below:

  1. Press CLEAR/OFF or CANCEL.
  2. Program control again.
  3. If the fault code appears again, disconnect power to the microwave for 30 seconds.
  4. Program the cooking function again.
  5. IF it comes back up you should change out the panel hope that helps, good luck

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: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

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 and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: The F3 code keeps coming on with a beeping sound

F3 means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

If it's under warranty, you should be able to get it fixed free.

The "C" in the model number means it's made for the Canadian market, and contacting GE Canada seems to be impossible for us here in the States.

So you'll need to contact GE via the info in your owner's manual.

If it's out of warranty, it's best to replace it, GE does not make parts available for JES-series microwaves.

One assumes they're meant to be thrown away when they fail out warranty.

Please don't kill the messenger... :)

SOURCE: F3 error GE Spacemaker XL 1800: Model JVM1851CD.

F3 on a GE / Hotpoint microwave means you have a shorted membrane keypad (aka membrane switch).

If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.

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

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.

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

Either way, we can let you know what your options and costs would be and send you other helpful info.

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.

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.

GE JES2150MRSA f3 code microwave turns on by itself,beeps out of control starts cooking by itself f3 is a control panel error


"F3" means you have a shorting membrane keypad.

Looking at the parts list for model JES2150MRSA, only the glass turntable and turntable support are listed, so it appears this is one of those unsupported "doorbuster" models.

If it's still in warranty, it can be exchanged. If not, it should be disposed of.

F3 code


An F3 error code indicates that the keypad for the control panel is bad or has a short. This will cause the microwave to beep continuously after the set clock message appears.
On many models of microwave oven means a problem with the touch panel, (tact switches).

Replace the switch panel to fix the fault.


Hope this helps.

Key pad lockout and load beeps


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

Since it's a basic counter top microwave, this may not be worth repair when you consider the cost of a new comparable unit.

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.

The part number of your keypad is
WB27X10624 and you can get it here for $51.37 plus shipping.

Good luck!

What does f3 mean in the window of a GE microwave


Code F3 is for 'shorted touch pad panel'.

However, this is not always the case.

Try the following;
Press (and hold) the Clear/Power button to reset the microwave and turned it off. Press it again to turn the microwave back on. set the clock. If the touch pach panel is okey, your microwave should work with no problem.
