Microwave shows F3

Microwave quits working and F3 comes up on the readout - along with a series of beeps - pressing any of the buttons on the touchpad does nothing -  The F3 stays there and beeps intermittently.

GE Spacemaker JVM1450AA001 started beeping then said to enter the time, which I couldn't enter because none of the panel buttons work, and is now showing F3 code? Sounds like the touch pad pa


Yeah, I think you're right, sounds like a shorted touchpad to me. Can you fix it? I don't know. You will have to disconnect and re-connect quite a few cables and connectors from the control panel. If you've never done that kind of work before, then I would not recommend that you try; it would be all too easy to damage something (like pulling a wire out of a connector, or inserting it wrong.

Out of no where I get and F3 error messaGE AND A BEEP BEEP BEEP the model # is JES1036WF001


Hi

F3 error in your GE microwave means that the keypad/touchpad is bad and should be replaced. However, before replacing it you can follow these step by step instructions to clean the touchpad assembly and see if it works:

1) Unplug microwave
2) Remove two small screws from upper face plate
3) Remove screw on upper side of control panel
4) Life panel and pull out
5) Identify flat tape-like harness connecting circuit card to keypad
6) Wipe down harness with an all-purpose wipe
7) Use hairdryer to dry remaining leftover moisture

8) After this put the keypad back if its not solved then replace it.

Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

I have the KitchenAid microwave oven model KBHC109. For the past few weeks the microwave has been beeping on its own. Sometimes it seems as though we are pressing buttons when we aren't and sometimes...


I am sorry but this is usually the signs your touchpad is going out and the part alone retails for a lil over $300.00. You know your needs better than anyone but in my home we would just keep dealing with it untill it drove us crazy, or quit being usable. Basically the buttons you press are worn and making contact without being pressed.

F3 is a shorted key you need a new keypad control panel. For the JE2160 series countertop model this should be the part#WB27X10681

The touchpad on my microwave has quit working.


possibly a stuck button which would mean a replacement pad, do the buttons bleep when you push them do some work and others dont its quite common normally its the start button or the cancel which goes(due to constant pushing) and it causes the error alternatively its a possible logic board fault which is far more expensive to replace!

Microwave/Convection Oven has mind of its own: turns to Crisp mode on its own.


Yes this is a touchpad issue. As you have noted the crisp button is stuck and this is the cause of this. You can try removing the keypad and push up the pressed button. If its jammed then replacing it is the only way.

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!

Microwave


F3 occurs if the controller detects a key shorted for more than 60 seconds. Luckily, on this model, the "keypanel" as it's called is available as a separate part. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety & disassembly info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering the model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 The "keypanel" is shown as reference number 44 on that exploded view.
