Mine too! I solved it, and hopefully you can too. I hit the clear/off button and held it down for several seconds with the door opened and closed. It cleared it up and it works again, hopefully forever.

HOW DO I CHANGE OUT THE TOUCHPAD FOR JNM1731DPBB


I'd suggest you contact Matt Fadorsen at eM-Ka Ventures in Chesterland, Ohio. He just repaired my GE keypad on a Model JVM2070CH02 microwave (GE doesn't make just the membrane keypad available--you have to purchase the entire control panel ($548.00 through a local parts distributor). Matt's turnaround from the time I removed the keypad to the time I re-installed it was only 8 days--and it only cost me $100, which included the return shipping. I'm sold on Matt!

My GE microwave is beeping and the display says F3


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

We would need your model number to give you more specific info, part ordering info, and en estimate if needed.

Simply contact me here with your model number and symptoms for free help.

On some models, the membrane keypad is peeled off and a new one stuck on.

In other models, the plastic frame must be replaced, and it comes with a keypad already installed.

What does the F3 alert indicate for a GE JES1238WH001?


F3 is a shorted keypad. Unfortunately you need to replace your touch pad to correct the issue. This can happen sometimes from moisture getting into the keypad from boiling water, or it can happen for no reason at all.

Sorry there is no parts available for the microwave.

Good Luck please rate 4 thumbs up and please leave a testimonial

Have a GE model JVM1430 that has error code of F-3


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

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open.

On these 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.

It is usually called the "Control panel asm" in the parts list (ref # 105 on the exploded view) .

You simply move your circuit board into the new frame. That is a simple do-it-yourself job.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

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:

GE JVM1540 keypad only works for some buttons


Membrane keypads are not very durable, and do fail after a relatively short time.

The only method is to replace them as a spare part.
