Question about Hotpoint Microwave Ovens
Welcome to Fixya
F3 on a GE / Hotpoint microwave means you have a shorting membrane keypad.
Warning: If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.
Please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and please do not leave it running unattended until it is repaired,.
I suggest that you seek assistance to a qualified technician since this is not a DIY job unless you have experience on this kind of problem. Here's the guide on how to replace it. Please proceed with caution.
Thank you for using Fixya!

Hello & Welcome to FixYa
PF error means power failure which is generally caused when the control board inside the unit goes bad. You can try unplugging the unit for 15-30 minutes, if the issue returns then the control board needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
