Have a GE Spacemaker (Model # JVM1650SH05). Microwave works for a few minutes then displays "F3" code. How can you tell if the Touchpad or Control Board is bad? When it is working for those few minutes,...


Hi,

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



Part number WB07X10959 this part can run over 100 bucks. If you shop around you could get a good price.


Good Luck

F3 code


An F3 error code indicates that the keypad for the control panel is bad or has a short. This will cause the microwave to beep continuously after the set clock message appears.
On many models of microwave oven means a problem with the touch panel, (tact switches).

Replace the switch panel to fix the fault.


Hope this helps.

Microwave won't turn on code say's "F3"


The F3 error code for a GE microwave means the control is sensing a stuck or shorted key. Try pushing every button multiple times and do it firmly.

Hold a blowdryer in the corner of the keypad then slowly move it down as you peel it back (but not off). Take a sponge with the tiniest bit of dish soap and run it over both the sticky part (back of the circuits) and the place it is stuck to. Blowdry this til touchably dry and then reapply the kaypad face. Wait about 10 minutes until you plug in again for it to cool off.

If that doens't work, UNPLUG the unit and try to gain access to the electronic control board. If you can there may be a ribbon cable you can unplug from the board and try wiping the end of the cable hard between your thumb and index finger then wipe with a paper towel and reinsert the ribbon cable. May work but more than likely you will need to replace the touchpad.

What does f3 mean in the window of a GE microwave


Code F3 is for 'shorted touch pad panel'.

However, this is not always the case.

Try the following;
Press (and hold) the Clear/Power button to reset the microwave and turned it off. Press it again to turn the microwave back on. set the clock. If the touch pach panel is okey, your microwave should work with no problem.
