Question about Hotpoint Microwave Ovens
F3 on a GE / Hotpoint
microwave means you have a shorted membrane keypad.
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.
On this model, 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.
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 keypad strip as shown in the attached photo.
Next, move your circuit board into the new frame. That is a simple do-it-yourself job.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
The control panel frame assembly with keypad is part number WB07X10874 and you can get it for $75.98 here. (Compare that to $120.75 from GE!)
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
