Slats, on each side of the top consol there is a clip. Slide a putty knife under each end and push on the clip. The top should pop up. From there you should be able to see how the end caps are removed so you can replace the touchpad panel. Catriver...post back.

GE Microwave keypad partially working


You have a failing membrane keypad.

On some models you can order just the membrane keypad. It's more work, but it's cheaper.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

On other models, you have to order the control panel frame which comes with a new keypad already on it.

A YouTube video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes, is here.

Some connectors have a lock.

You can order GE parts from Sears hereimage-4235112-10659157 and the site should have helpful exploded views.

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

Replacing the keypad


A full model number would be very helpful, but since you've not posted it, we have to just give generic advice.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

If on your model you have to order the separate membrane keypad, here is a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

If you can order the control panel frame with a keypad already installed, it's much simpler.

In this second case, at our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Once the controller assembly is loose from the oven, you need to remove the keypad strip, then take your board out of the old frame and put it in the new one.

You have a failing membrane keypad.

On some models, you have to replaced the keypad separately.

I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

On other models, you can replace the whole control panel frame, which comes with a new keypad already installed.

You can also get details there if you need more help with the repair.

Code f2E3


It appears that this code is a code for "keypad spill" so it somehow may have gotten liquid inside the keypad. It may be as simple as removing the face panel and wiping clean the keypad and putting it together, or you may end up needing to purchase an entire keypad and installing.

Garage keypad not working. Installed new battery, reset code and it worked once.


You normally would not have to reset the code after replacing the battery. It remembers the code. I think you have a bad keypad or maybe the battery or battery connection is bad. Even a new battery can be faulty at times.

Read-out shows F3


On a GE microwave, "F3" means a bad membrane keypad.

You can order a membrane keypad here and install it yourself according to this handy illustrated guide, or we can install it for you.

If the keypad is not available separately, you can order a control panel frame assembly here, which comes with a new keypad already installed.

But since this was posted under Jenn-Air, that confuses the issue. If yours is a Jenn-Sir, please post a new help request here on FixYa and include the full model number from the tag, or contact us for a free estimate and tips.

Tricky touch pad on Sharp R530 es microwave oven


There are two options here:

1. Order a new control panel frame which has the keypad, trim piece and door button already installed and swap your control boards into it.

The original part number FPNLCB346MRK0 has been replaced by part # FPNLCB346MRK0B and it runs $58.28 plus shipping.

2. Disassemble your control panel frame, peel off the old keypad and stick a new one on.

Even though the keypad alone runs only $35.66, this job takes a lot of time and labor.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace just the keypad yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

Whichever option you choose, we have the service manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

You will need the
free Acrobat Reader to view or print it in case you don't have it already.

Sounds like a failing or wet keypad or *maybe* the controller.

Is it possible that some spray cleaner accidentally got into the controls?

I always recommend that users spray the cleaner on a soft cloth (not on the keypad itself) then wipe the control panel off.

Also, I always recommend non-ammonia cleaners since ammonia can crack and damage plastic.

Otherwise, the spray can get into the controls and lock it up or make it act odd.

If it does not dry out over time, it may need to be manually dried or blown out.

The keypad may be damaged or worn out, or control unit may be damaged.

This can usually be fixed economically, but please look over this response and then I'd be happy to help further.

Please rely back to this thread if possible when leaving replies.
