F3 means - Shorted key panel (touch pad) and it occur when a shorted key panel is detected continuously over 60 seconds. In this case the key panel should be replaced. Good luck !

I was also getting F3 error code on GE spacemaker xl 1800. After reading prior post about possible faulty keypad, I unplugging and touching each of the keys on the control panel. After touching most of the individual keys, the problem solved itself. Back to having a working micro. Thanks for the help!
