Question about Microwave Ovens
GE Microwave JES1334WD started showing a code -P3- after use this morning. Unplugged for 10 minutes then plugged in. All lights on panel came on then it beeped loudly several times and showed code -P3- again. Owner's manual does not show any codes. The door is firmly closed. The 3-prong plug is in a 3-hole receptacle; no 3-prong to 2-prong adapter is being used. When the panel first lights up there is a CODE on the top line of items. How do you get into the codes? What does a -P3- mean? Thanks for your help. BJ

Are you sure it's not F3? That would be a shorted keypad ("membrane panel").
That's usually not too big a job for a DIYer, but if you'd like, we can do that for $39.95 plus parts.
If you or someone you know decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
One good test is (with power unplugged) to unplug the keypad, then plug the oven back in and see if the error code shows up.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
There should also be a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel. It's very helpful when troubleshooting.
We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
