In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man.
Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

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.
