Question about Microwave Ovens
Upper oven keeps giving F3 message
Are quasar temperature probes still available? I have an old Microwave that requires a probe as when we try to cook with the probe all we get is FFFF on the display. I am told that Panasonic do not make the probes any more.

This code means you have a bad temperature sensor or thermal fuse, or a fault in the wiring harness to or from one of them.

Tips for a great answer:
Control displaying F3 E0:
There may be a problem with the Oven Temperature Sensor, or the associated wiring.
Power unit down by turning off the circuit breaker(s) for one (1) minute.
Power unit up by turning on the circuit breaker(s).
Monitor the oven for one (1) minute to ensure the error code does not display again.
Verify oven operation.

F3 error in your GE microwave
means that the keypad/touchpad is bad and should be replaced. However, before
replacing it you can follow these step by step instructions to clean the
touchpad assembly and see if it works:
1) Unplug microwave
2) Remove two small screws from upper face plate
3) Remove screw on upper side of control panel
4) Life panel and pull out
5) Identify flat tape-like harness connecting circuit card to keypad
6) Wipe down harness with an all-purpose wipe
7) Use hairdryer to dry remaining leftover moisture
8) After this put the keypad back
if its not solved then replace it.
Hope this helps...please post back
for further assistance.
