How do i fix keypad


Keypads will flash when new oven or when disconnected and setting are lost. First try setting the clock
  • push CLOCK--enter numbers--push CLOCK to see if keypad becomes operational.
If not, unplug, replug and try again. As for "fixing" keypad ....that is not likely to be the problem and even it it were, keypads are not user repairable. For further info, dial the the factory customer support phone number.

F3 keeps showing on the oven screen cannot do any functions


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

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.

On some GE models, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame assembly which comes with a new keypad.

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

Feel free to contact me via our site (and please mention your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

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

The screen says - F3 - and none of the buttons work


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

In some cases, you would need to replace the keypad itself.

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

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame. That is a simple do-it-yourself job.

I have LG over the range microwave and the keypad will not let me enter 0's. Such as 2:00 minutes cooking time. I can enter 2:25 but the keypad will not accept 0's.


Its just a problem with that button on the touch pad, gonna have to take panel off and check the connections could be a burnt wire or broke wire.

Kenmore 80823 cannot enter anything on keypad. Keypad has power.


Is it possible that some spray cleaner accidentally got into the controls?

Direct spraying of cleaners on the keypad and steam from the cooktop can damage the controls.

I always recommend that you spray non-ammonia cleaner on a soft cloth (not a paper towel which can scratch) and gently wipe the keypad.

And I always recommend that you use the vent fan when cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls.

If it does not dry out over time, it may need to be manually dried or blown out.

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 at the Sears parts site.

But Sears parts can usually be obtained for far less here by entering either the part or model number.

A full Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########

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.

Microwave keypad issue


You have a failed membrane keypad.

Most of the time, this is an economical fix. But shockingly, this keypad runs a whopping $110!

Microwave not working


It may help us to give the brand and model, but it sounds like you have a failing keypad.

We have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Essentially you unplug the oven from the wall outlet, and remove the control panel assembly as per the instructions at the site linked above.

There should also be a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel. It's very helpful when troubleshooting.

Then unplug the keypad from the circuit board, heat up the keypad from the front with a hair dryer, then peel the old keypad off. You have to make sure all the old adhesive is off.

Then peel the backing paper from the new keypad and carefully press the new keypad in place. You need to be precise - you cannot apply it, peel it off, then reapply it.

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

The Keypad stopped working


I suspect you atually have a bad keypad, but apparently GE decided to send you some free gifts? Wow. Sell them on eBay if they're not needed. *grin*

Replacing the keypad is usually a pretty easy job for a DIYer.

In many cases, it may be caused by steam or grease, but it may also just be a failure over time. I always recommend that you use the vent fan whenever you're cooking on the stove top. That helps keep steam, grease and heat away from the microwave controls.

Your keypad or control board may have moisture or grease on them, but your keypad (membrane switch) is likely going bad.
