F3 on a GE / Hotpoint microwave means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

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

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.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

If you would like to have us do this repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs nationwide.

But please note that for 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.

To see if this is the case for your model, enter your full model number* here.

I have a GE Spacemaker XL1800 Adora Microwave (manufactured in 2004) and the light bulb went out but I can't located it to replace it. Where is it located? Thanks


If it is meant to be user replaceable, then your owner's manual will cover it.

If not, then you may need to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

Either way, you can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, & testing.

GE Profile Spacemaker XL1800 The microwave runs, the lights come on, timers goes, but it does not heat/cook and it makes a loud buzzing sound.What is wrong with it,and can I repair or trouble shoot it?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If it’s a loud hum/buzz sound then 90% it’s usually a bad magnetron and other times it’s a bad high voltage diode. However, from what you have described it seems to be the magnetron. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Have a ge spacemaker xl1800 - f3 error


I had the same problem. I removed the grill and opened the control panel as I read an answer from "GENE" on APP (Appliance Pros) that this indicated a short in the circuit board (TouchPad). I was going to replace the faulty circuit board but when I opened the control panel there it was......One wire harness had just came unplugged!! I plugged it in, reassembled and the microwave works again!

F3 usually means a keypad or temperature sensor / thermistor problem.

The fact that you can't use the microwave leads me to believe it's a keypad or control circuit board problem.

If you have the owner's manual that came with the unit, I would suggest you look there for a contact numer to call for service.

Otherwise I would suggest calling the store from which you purchased it.

Please write back with more details if you need further help.
