No, sadly the WES series ovens were made for the rock bottom market, and GE does not make any parts available for them except the turntable and turntable support.

If it's under warranty, you can return it to Walmart.

If not, it's off to the dump.

Sorry to bear bad news.

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

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.

Heard on news of fires even when off


That's usually form shorted or shorting keypads.

What to look out for is is you get an F3 error on your keypad (assuming you have a GE - the code is different on other brands).

Direct spraying of cleaners on the keypad and steam from the cooktop can damage the controls or short the keypad.

I always recommend that you spray non-ammonia cleaner on a soft cloth (not a paper towel which can scratch) and gently wipe the keypad.

And I always recommend that you use the vent fan when cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls.

Or just to be safe, you can just leave the oven's door open at night or actually any time you're not using the oven..

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

I report from owner manual.

F3 means : Short circuit on key panel (your touch pad).
You get F3 error if a shorted key panel is detected for more than 60 seconds.
Solution: . Replace key panel (touch pad).

Try first unpluggign power cord for five minutes.

If you think that the problem may had been caused by water inside the keypad you can try using an hairdryer on the keypad, taking care not to melt the keypad plastic.
If that does not work, then replace the keypad.

You can buy replacements here. or Order GE Microwave Ovens Parts Here
