Hotpoint RVM1435W Display goes haywire and flickers letters and numbers then shuts off. Sometimes it just keeps the fan running and the keypad doesnt work so we have to unplug it.

Sadly, we hear of this over and over.

This is usually due to a defective or loose magnetron causing electrical interference and disruption in the control circuit board.

If your magnetron was recently replaced, it may have loose mounting nuts or bolts or the wire mesh RF gasket was not installed or got pinched.

It may also need a new high-voltage diode and stirrer, and the cavity may be affected.

The parts kit (that GE used to pay for) is part # WB27X10489 and is shown in the photo here:

"SE" error means you have a shorted membrane keypad.
On this model, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so the control panel frame assembly (which comes with a new keypad) would have to be ordered and replaced.

It's actually a pretty simple DIY repair.

The frame assembly is part number W10258190 and you can get it for $67.98 (subject to change) from the Pros here. You can also order the thermostat (part number WB27X10567 ) from them.

Their is a video here showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Then you unplug the keypad as per the photo below.

Some connectors on the relays have a lock:

HOTPOINT COUNTERSAVER PLUS RVM 1435 DISPLAY READS F3


"F3" on a GE / Hotpoint microwave means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

On RVM1435-series microwaves, 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.


In this case, you simply 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 (RVM1435XX###) from the tag on the oven here.

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 unplug the keypad (as per the photo below) and move the circuit board into your frame.

My GE microwave is beeping and the display says F3


F3 on a GE / Hotpoint microwave means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

We would need your model number to give you more specific info, part ordering info, and en estimate if needed.

Simply contact me here with your model number and symptoms for free help.

On some models, the membrane keypad is peeled off and a new one stuck on.

In other models, the plastic frame must be replaced, and it comes with a keypad already installed.

Model# rvm1435bj01 microwaves display pf & f3


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!)

Possible door adjustment problem


Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

Or you can return it for replacement.

I would not suggest trying to fix this yourself since it's under warranty.

F3 Error on Display


F3 on a GE / Hotpoint microwave means you have a shorted keypad.

Direct spraying of cleaners on the keypad and steam from the cooktop can damage the controls.

Always spray non-ammonia cleaner on a soft cloth (not a paper towel which can scratch) and gently wipe the keypad.

If it will not successfully dry out, it will need to be repaired.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

If you would like to have us do this for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.
