Question about GE Microwave Ovens
I have a GE countertop microwave (model # JES1334WD) built in Aug. 2002. It will not work and is showing "F3" on the display. Is it repairable, or worth repairing? Or is it dead? Thanks for your help!
F3 on a GE means you have a shorted membrane keypad.
There are two ways to fix this model, either replace the membrane keypad which is a lot of work (handy guide with pictures) or to replace the complete controller.
It's probably not going to be economical even to repair it yourself if you or a friend want to. It depends on the model:
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.
I looked up parts prices for the -02 verison.
ref # 38 part number WB27X10554 membrane keypad $69.71 here (compared to $112.50 direct from GE!)
ref # 42 part number WB07X11076 complete controller assembly $131.01 here (compared to $196.25 direct from GE!)
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
