Question about GE XL1800 1100 Watts Microwave Oven
The letters "F3" keeps flasing on the LCD screen and the microwave beeps 3 times about every 30 seconds. Nothing works. The only way to stop the beeping is to unplug the micro. Please help.
If it's a GE model, F3 will mean a shorted key panel.
(If it's not a GE, please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you).
If you might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
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.
BUT If you would like to have us do this for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.
Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.
We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
