F3 error in your GE microwave
means that the keypad/touchpad is bad and should be replaced. However, before
replacing it you can follow these step by step instructions to clean the
touchpad assembly and see if it works:
1) Unplug microwave
2) Remove two small screws from upper face plate
3) Remove screw on upper side of control panel
4) Life panel and pull out
5) Identify flat tape-like harness connecting circuit card to keypad
6) Wipe down harness with an all-purpose wipe
7) Use hairdryer to dry remaining leftover moisture
8) After this put the keypad back
if its not solved then replace it.
Hope this helps...please post back
for further assistance.
