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.

F3 means shorted key panel. You get prompted with F3 error if a short on key panel is detected for over 60 seconds.

Test key panel wiring and eventually replace key panel.

Enter the model number on one of two websites below to get parts and diagrams for your appliance:
