SOURCE: GE Microwave displaying --F3--

F3 on a GE / Hotpoint microwave means you have a shorting keypad / controls.

There's a chance it can come on by itself and run unattended, which can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open.

On this model, the keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to replace the entire controller assembly.

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.

Then you disconnect the wires and install the new controller.

You can order part number WB07X10903 here for $114.37 (compare that to $174.75 direct from GE!).

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

Washer won't drain


DIAGNOSTIC MODE
To enter diagnostic mode follow the steps below.
1. Turn the power on at the power point but off at the machine.
2. Press and hold WASH TEMPERATURE SETTING DOWN and then press POWER until the
machine gives 2 short beeps and lights up.
3. Release the buttons after the beeps as the beeps indicate diagnostic mode has been entered.
4.1 Last Fault Data
When in diagnostic mode the last fault can be found by pressing the SPIN SPEED UP or DOWN
buttons until the HOLD and SLOW lights are illuminated. Binary can then be read from the wash
progress lights.
4.2 Drain Pump Test
MW Washer
When in diagnostic mode press SMART TOUCH CYCLES to activate the drain pump. To
deactivate the pump, press SMART TOUCH CYCLES again.
GW Washer
When in diagnostic mode press REGULAR to activate the drain pump. To deactivate the pump,
press REGULAR again.

4.3 Water Valve Test
The water valves can be activated in diagnostic mode by pushing WASH TEMPERATURE SETTING UP to activate the Hot Valve and WASH TEMPERATURE SETTING DOWN to activate
the Cold valve as with previous models.
Pressing each button once will activate the valve. To de-activate valve press the same button
again. This is also good to use when installing machines as it takes the shock out of the fittings
and seals and allows checking for leaks on the inlet hoses, both machine end and tap or super-tub
end.
Caution: Do not leave the machine unattended when either or both valves are operating

I have a Defiant Electronic deadbolt from home Depot. model G1X2D01. ive lost the manual and i need to delete some old codes from it.


Snap off the back cover (opposite where you punch the numbers) by pinching the sides and pulling off. Do not press a pen or anything into the small light, you do not need too. Just pinch and yank off cover. You will see a small light and beside it is a small SET button by the batteries, it is labelled.. Press this Set button for 2 seconds. The red LED will light on the front code side and beep twice to indicate you are in programming mode. Enter your current code that you want to change (factory set is 12345) and then press the button that looks like a little lock on the keypad. Enter the digits "10" and press the lock button again. Enter the new code (must be six digits) and then press the lock button again. The red light should go on continously for 10 seconds. The code should be effective.
Note: if you have problems like we did, you can also remove one battery and press the "set" button simulataneously when you reinsert the battery. This resets the factory code of 12345. Then you can start over. For some reason our old code was only 4 digits, but it would not let us reprogram a 4 digit code. It didn't work until we did a 6 digit new code.

How to take my viper remoter off vabration. a where can i find the manual for the viper remoter


To enter programming mode Press the Program button on the back of the remote or hold the four remote control buttons on the front of the remote simultaneously until one long beep is heard. Programming Mode has now been entered.

I held the black button down untill it beeped and then reset the entry codes (they were compromised). Since then it beeps after an unlock code is entered, then it beeps a few times and will not respond to...


ok -- so you know about the black re-set button ( that saves me some time ),,
1. push and hold the black button untill it beeps 3 times -
2. enter your new code,, 4 to 8 digits and then press the 'LOCK' button.
it should now be programmed to your new code.
now if you want to add more codes to the lock -- just push the black button twice and enter next code and hit the ' LOCK ' button,,, this will store the next code.
make sure you test the lock several times so you do not get locked out.
also -- change your battery once or twice a year ( depending on use ) to be sure it never dies.
now the reason it does not respond to button function is because it goes into lock down mode after about 3 tries,, this is a security function of the lock,,, before you try the re-program - let the lock sit idle for 5 minutes or so,, also just to make sure the lock does not get over excited - remove the battery and let sit for a few more minutes,, ( this is just a extra step that I do out in the field whenever I encounter this problem ) --- and yes I am a locksmith.
best of luck to you,, if you have anymore troubles - please write me back here and I will do my best to walk you through it.
have a great night,

How to turn light on the python 990 remote?


If you just want the LCD backlit turned on, press and hold the program button on the back of the remote until the remote gives a long tone, that indicates that you've entered programming mode. Then within 5 seconds of entering programming mode press the the unlock button. The remote will beep once for backlight on and twice for backlight off. In the "on" setting your backlight will turn on each time a button on the remote is pressed. It will run down your battery faster though. It's the same for both the 990 and the 950 remotes.
