SOURCE: Trouble shoot
F3 indicates a failure of the keypad.
The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.
If that doesn't take care of it, you'll need a new keypad, and this is not too hard for a DIYer.

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