Hi DIBARTRK

First, try resetting the unit by completely diconnecting from the power for 10 mins. Then reconnect. If it still does the same thing, then it has develpoped a fault and will need to be looked at by a Service Guy.

Microwaves have very dangerous voltages inside, and I do not reccomend that you attempt to fix it yourself. What brand is it and where in the world are you... let meknow and I can find a repair center near to you. :)

    Did you try to reset the appliance?

    F3 error means that the oven tempeture sensor is open circuit. You will need to replace it.

    I have already forewarned you about the voltages inside microwaves. BE SURE TO DISCONNECT THE POWER!!

    Hoping you could give me a FixYa for that one :)

I don't know why my microwaves keep beeping and starts the Exhaust Fan automatically every 5 mins. The display says F-3. Please help me with the problem I'll appreciate.


F-3 is usually for the temperature sensor being faulty. What you need most likely is to replace the temperature sensor. This would explain why your microwave oven exhaust fan keeps going off, because your temperature sensor is telling it that it is overheating even though it isn't.

My microwave keeps beeping when plugged in and shows a F3 code on the screen. What can be done for this?


Possibly a sensor error.
There is a temperature sensor that is giving the wrong voltage to the control panel.

Our Microwave keeps running and won't stop. It is


The fan you hear is probably the magnetron cooling fan and that, and the light, are probably both controlled by the electronics board that controls everything else. You might inquire online at Maytag or the Sears parts department to determine the cost of a replacement board but I suspect it will either not be available at all or cost 3/4 of a new microwave.

Tappan microwave


I think the membrane/button for the number 4 is stuck or broken. Due to the nature of a microwave my advice would be to entrust the work to a competant technician. Hope this helps.

Keeps beeping and shows F3 but keypad not working


Ya what the ????
Not shure what to tell you, first I would see if leaving unplug for a day would solve your problem, to me sound like main board is defective, also try by opening the door a closing it a couple of time, just in cass a switch is jam open.
