F3H means you have a failing humidity sensor, but the first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

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.

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.

If you don't find yours, or if you want to look at it without disassembling the oven, you can usually download it here.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Started with lights on ceiling left side three tube replaced tubes replaced board now getting f3h code


You may not get an answer because your question is very confusing. You are asking about a Microwave and talking about lights on the ceiling which appears to be a florescent which you replaced 3 tubes on, but then you mention a board and a f3h? None of this really makes any sense to me. Maybe someone else may be able to understand but I cannot. Please elaborate in detail.

Whirlpool Gold Accuwave wont heat


Hi, there are three issues that will cause a no heat situation in a microwave. these issue are a failed Magnetron, busted cut-off fuse and, failed diode.

I recommend checking all these area that are located inside the microwave for faults.

The most common issue will be a failed Magnetron.

The diode and, fuse will be located on the noise filter assembly.

Error code F3H on model GH5184XP


F3H is a humidity sensor error.

You may be able to clear the error by unplugging the oven for a couple of minutes. Then plug it back in, reset the clock and try again.

If it still has the error after a reset, please write back so we can give you another suggestion.

Microwave troubleshooting


I found the fix to the F3H error on another site. Just turn the power to the microwave off for ~2 minutes at the circuit breaker, and then turn it back on. Microwave will start working again then.
