Question about GE XL1800 1100 Watts Microwave Oven
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.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
