Code "F3" is highlighted on Key Panel

F3 usually means a problem with the control panel. There may be a corroded component or a power surge damaged the unit. Sometimes a little water will get into the keypad and cause the problem.

First try unplugging the unit for ten minutes. That may reset error code. (For built-in units, you can try flipping the circuit breaker to off or removing the trim to reach the power cord.)

If that fails, unplug the microwave again. You can remove the vent by unscrewing the top screws. Open the door to get the vent free. Then unscrew another screw to tip the keypad down (push up at the bottom of the panel). Disconnect the wires from the circuit board and remove the screws. Remove the circuit board and the shield behind it. Check over all of the pieces for dirt or signs of corrosion. (Clean gently.) Let everything dry (or use a hairdryer to dry all sides of the components). Then replace the parts in the reverse order. Plug in the microwave and check for the error.

If that fails, replace the control panel. One source for parts is .

I hope this helps. It may be cheaper to replace the microwave.

Microwave error code se

That would be a shorting membrane keypad.
On most of these, 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.

It's actually a pretty easy do it yourself job.

A video is available here 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.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

Mistral microwave MUMW23SS has no heat, light comes on, turntable operates OK, tested the megatron and reading 0.4 ohms, tested the internal fuse this is OK any suggestions

The keypad control board is more than likely the problem, if microwave is less than 7 years old the inverter board has been a source of trouble from time to time. When you consider parts cost it will approach if not exceed the value of a new microwave oven.

Unplug microwave, remove top, go to the right where keypad is located, follow the wire to the circuit board, look for a silver rectangular capacitor and short a screwdriver over the 2 points to remove any remainder of voltage. There should a small fuse clipped in near by, replace with same current rating, assemble before testing, carries lethal voltages when turned on.

The letters "SE" is on

Hi, there are two possibilities. (1)keypad failure and (2) bad connection.

Obviously the easiest thing is to clean the connection. So first take the cover off. Behind the keypad is a circuit board. In addition to a few connections between the circuit board and other parts of the microwave, there is a ribbon connecting the keypad to the circuit board.

Loose the plastic on the connection, pull the ribbon out from the socket.then use a spirit to clean the exposed copper connections. Put every thing back to place then try it

I have a sharp microwave sometimes it works for 10 or 20 seconds and then stops with error ee2, other times it works fine. Today it did the same but stopped with error ee1!

This sounds like a keypad problem, sometimes a short developes in the keypad controller causing all kinds of intermittent problems, on the back is the microprocessor circuit board which controls vital areas of the microwave oven. The cost to repair will be high and consideration should given to looking at a replacement.

I've got a model: JES1036PWH02.....when I plugged the unit in the internal light came on, the screen showed all eights and then in a few seconds shows a "PF" and NONE of the buttons work? How...

The keypad controller is defective, behind it there is the microprocessor ic mounted on a board with several other parts. The whole keypad and circuit board must be replaced, and the cost just for the part will run more than a new microwave.

I need a circuit board for a MH7130XEZ-1

The printed circuit board (PCB) was part number 4359413 then was superseded by part number 8172053.

It looks like it may be no longer available or at least not through usual sources, but sites like and show they can provide it for about $172 to $195.

But depending on the problem, we may be able to repair it with our $39.95 repair service. We repair hundreds on microwave control boards every year.

And we've repaired these.

Control panel not working

Your membrane keypad is failing.

Actually this job on this model can be completed by a do-it-yourselfer (you or a friend) pretty easily and at around $50 or so. Here's how:

You can order the control panel frame assembly, which comes with a new keypad. It's part # 383EW5A231S and it runs $42.73 plus shipping form the Sears parts site.

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.

Plus see this diagram at the Sears site.

Then you would disconnect the keypad strip from the circuit board as shown in the photo below.

After that, you take your circuit board out of the old frame (being careful not to drop or bump it) and put it in the new frame and put it all back together.

If you want to avoid taking out the board, you can order the complete controller assembly instead (frame with keypad and circuit board installed) part # 4781W1M432A for $87.02 plus shipping.

If you're still intimidated, at least watch our video. It's really pretty simple.

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