On a GE, F3 usually means a shorted keypad. We replace these for customers nationwide for $39.95 plus parts.

If you might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved. It's at http://www.microwavedisplay.com/keypad_replacement.pdf

Neff - reduce the beeps


I notice you did not list the make and model, but in general they beep 3 to 4 times or more, it is not uncommon for some to give more. If you have your owners manual there might be a option offered, or contact the manufacture and talk to customer support and the technical department for a possible solution.

F3 on a GE / Hotpoint microwave means you have a shorted membrane keypad. It can be intermittent.

On some models, the keypad can be replaced as a separate part.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

But on some GE models, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame assembly which comes with a new keypad.

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame. That is a simple do-it-yourself job.

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.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Feel free to contact me
directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

KitchenAid kemc308kss0 Micro/Oven Combo Microwave: At the end of any cycle there is a four-tone beep that will continue to beep until KINGDOM COME until you either a. open the door b. press cancel. That is...


From page 7 of your owner's manual:

All Tones (combination oven models only)

All of the above tones are preset on, but can be turned off.
To Turn Off/On: Touch and hold STOP TIME for 5 seconds. A
tone will sound and “Snd oFF” will appear on the lower oven
display for 3 seconds. Repeat to change back to “Snd on.”

Tone Volume

The volume is preset at high, but can be changed to low.

To Change: Touch and hold the number pad “7” for 5 seconds. A
tone will sound and “Snd Lo” will appear on the lower oven
display for 3 seconds. Repeat to change back to “Snd HI.”

REMINDER TONES

The Timer and Timed Cooking reminder tones are preset on, but
can be turned off. Reminder tones do not include end-of-cycle
tones. On combination oven models, if “All Tones” have been
turned off, the reminder tones cannot be independently turned
on.

Timer

To Turn Tones Off/On: Touch and hold TIMER SET • START until
a tone sounds. Repeat to turn back on.

Timed Cooking (combination oven models only)

To Turn Tones Off/On: Touch and hold COOK TIME until a tone
sounds and the lower oven display returns to inactive mode

11-30-2010 I need the user manual of Amana Mictowave model RS560W . Kindly assist. Thanks. Rgds Alon Felz The real problem: After heating the food (in a certain time selected), a beep sound should be heard...


In order to solve the problem this is what I did (with a help of Mr. Hilik
@ www.microgal.co.il)
1. Unplug the power cable 220Vac from the wall outlet.
2. Make sure or the clock led is "off" and screen is dark
3. Plug again the power cable 220Vac
4. Nothing comes "on" on the led screen
5. press on the digit "zero" (0) and you hear a beep signal
6. Take a glass filled with water press on the digits "1" and then "0" and
then "start"
7. After 10 seconds the beep signal will come on again.
8. Note: this kind a phenomena appears after voltage cut off when there
is a need to lift up again the handle on the voltage breakers . FYI.

How do you turn the beep off?


Finally worked out how to do this today! I don't know what model you've got (I don't know what one I've got - it's built in and we've lost the manual) but try pressing the START button for six seconds. This should change the default from 30 beeps to 3 beeps. Bliss.

F-3 means shorted touch panel pad. In order to attempt clearing the code yourself, please follow the steps below:

  1. Press CLEAR/OFF or CANCEL.
  2. Program control again.
  3. If the fault code appears again, disconnect power to the microwave for 30 seconds.
  4. Program the cooking function again.
  5. IF it comes back up you should change out the panel hope that helps, good luck
