Question about Microwave Ovens
GE Microwave Spacemaker JVM1430BD002. Microwave starts turning the lights on and off, keypad is out of manual control and we are unable to use our MW. When we disconnect it for some time and connect it again, we can use it for a short period of time and then the problem starts again. There is a code F3 appearing in the display.
F3 on a GE / Hotpoint
microwave means you have a shorted membrane keypad.
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 please do not leave it running unattended.
We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail in about a week or so with a one-year guarantee.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for pricing and more information & help.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
