Question about Microwave Ovens
My advantium ove n is beeping with a read out that says F3 . It beeps every 30 seconds and none of the contrl buttons work. HELP!
F3 means a shorted keypad. Is it possible that some spray cleaner got onto or into the controls?
I always recommend that instead users spray cleaner on a soft cloth then wipe the control panel.
Also, I always recommend non-ammonia cleaners since ammonia can crack and damage plastic.
Otherwise, the spray can get into the controls and lock it up or make it act odd.
If it does not dry out over time, it may need to be manually dried or blown out.
Othwrwise, the keypad may be damaged or worn out, or control unit may be damaged.
Some people replace them or have us do it.
