    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.


    If you still need help, please reply back with your full model number from the tag on the unit so we can help you.

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.

Please note that FixYa is not currently notifying us Experts when Clarification Requests are answered.

To allow us to help you effectively (at no charge), please post a
NEW problem to FixYa, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit, and your symptoms "F3".

Or feel free to contact me directly (and please include your full model number from the tag in or on the unit) for a free estimate and free tips & do-it-yourself advice, and/or an estimate.

Your membrane keypad has failed.

On this model, the membrane keypad is available as part of the control panel frame assembly which comes with a new keypad.

Replacing this is actually a pretty easy do it yourself job.

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.

Next, disconnect the keypad strip as shown in the photo below, then remove the screws that hold your circuit board in the old frame.

Then carefully (since the display is made of glass) move your circuit board to the new frame, and reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.

The part number to order is 8205018 and you can get it here for $107.05 plus shipping.

You can also find helpful exploded view diagrams at that link. Just enter your model number as KHMS155LSS4 without the dash.

Your membrane keypad has failed. I'm guessing it's giving an error code of F2 also?

Unlock frigidaire microwave model FFMV164LSA


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you are trying to unlock your Frigidaire microwave, model# FFMV164LSA. This has two different meanings to me. First, if the door is locked and will not come open, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician. Secondly, the control lock is on. If the control lock is on, you will need to press and hold down the "Stop/Cancel" button for 3-5 seconds, to unlock it. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your microwave status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Forgot my childproof code now i cant use my microwave how can i get a new one


Many microwave CHILD LOCK features are activated / disabled by repeatedly pressing one of the function buttons or by holding it down for about 5 seconds.

Try pressing the STOP / CANCEL button 3 or 4 times in a row to see if you can the CHILD LOCK off.

If that doesn't work, also try holding down that button down for 5 seconds.

Try these same two procedures on some of the other buttons as well like the TIMER button, or the START button, or the CLOCK button.

Your best bet however would be to include the brand and model number with your question next time and then we will be able to locate the exact instructions for you.

I hope this was helpful.

Good luck and take care.

Joe.

I held CANCEL key too long and now the microwave is Locked. How do I unlock it?


Press and hold the Clear/Off button for about 3 seconds again. This toggles the Child Lock.

I hope this helps.

(I used the model given above to check if the toggle command was the same or different from the lock command. If your microwave is a different model, try pressing the CANCEL button for about 3 seconds.)

How do I unlock the child lock on my Panasonic Genius Microwave?


March 2009 press the function key,select option #5, select option#2. This should take it out of child lock. If this doesn't work enclose your model number and I will try to look up the manual


Or, press "Cancel" three times to clear the (child) lock.
You set the lock by pressing "Start" three times.
