That's something we do for $39.95 but 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

F3 error code ge microwave


No, unfortunately the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part on this model.

You would have to order the control panel frame, which comes with a new keypad already installed.

The part number is WB07X10883 and you can get it for $86.82 here.

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.

Then you unplug the keypad (as per the photo below) and move the circuit board into your frame.

Some connectors on the relays may have a lock:

F3 means shorted key panel. You get prompted with F3 error if a short on key panel is detected for over 60 seconds.

Test key panel wiring and eventually replace key panel.

Microwave key pad stopped working


Okay, thank you for that.

You have a failed membrane keypad, but on this model, it is not available separately.

You would need to order the control panel assembly, part # WB56X10817, which you can get here for far less than GE charges.

It costs more than just a membrane would, but is much simpler to replace.

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.

Then you remove your circuit board from the old frame and install it in the new frame.

GE JVM1190 control pad


It is not your key panel, but the magnetron inside the microwave that is causing you the problem. The reason it does not short out on defrost or convection is because it is not drawing as much current through the magnetron to short out.
