After setting all controls, to warm up some
some leftovers, my wife pushed the start button and the entire front panel went black. I checked the circuit breaker to the unit, but it was not tripped. Is there a fuse inside of the unit ( WE do not have a repair manual ) ?
I know what you mean. I was cooking with this appliance tonight and suddenly it displayed an f-3 code. My advantium oven is less than 8 months old. Not sure how this happened or how to fix the problem. In order to sleep tonight (the constant beeping) I had to shut power off at the breaker pannel. Is this representative of the the type of quality that GE stands for???? I am sooo frustrated. I cook with my advantium oven all the time and love the dual abilities of this appliance. Like I said this is brand new and to have the f-3 code which apparently (from what I read) is a failed key pad. I am very dissapointed and am begining to think about pulling my stock from this company!

Pushing two buttons at the same time is a method worth trying. Maybe the timer button and the button next to it and while holding those two in, push the + or - buttons which would set the time and place it in manual mode rather than auto. Pushing a couple of buttons at the same time seems to be the approach on various devices
Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.You didnt have to change the computer you need to replace the control panel. The control panel is the whole front piece which has the touch membrane on it. This is common on these units.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..
This blank display is a common control board problem. If the buttons beep when pressed, then the control board is getting adequate power. If the buttons beep.. and your oven light still turns on when the oven door is open.. this a text book control board failure. We at Fixyourboard.com can solve this problem for you, and back the remanufacture with a two year warranty.
HI, unfortunately, it is not just dirt, this is a faulty touch pad that is combined with the control board. most touch pads are separate parts that are clipped in front of the circuit board but, in this case, the touch pad and control board are one piece.
You will need to replace the entire control board in this case. the touch pad is faulty.
Shut the breaker off to the oven first. Frame around mircowave is a snapped on front. Removing allows access to two screws under control panal. Must actually pull entire unit out about 9 inches to access top of control area to remove access panel. Once front control panel is removed and top is opened, easy access to what you need to get to. Carefully write down color coding of wires before removing any of them. Remove old power supply board and display and reconnect. Reverse process. A bit of work but if you watch the disassembly process carefully, pretty easy.
check your power connections at the junction box, the unit for the clock is only pulling an amp at the most, but when you try to use the ove your putting the electrial connections under a load and if not tight or right will cut off the display and main cpu unit
there is a loose connection somewhere
Atlanta...sounds like you may have a power supply problem or the panel is bad. Cut the power, open the unit up and see if there is a fuse in there or a reset. No good? Then replace the circuit board. They just, well, die sometime. Happened to my microwave. Some units may be available remanufactured. Look around on the web.
most of the time a simple fix....
you have to trick the door lock mech into cycling through the cleaning process (takes about 20 seconds)
PrintRange - “LOCKED DOOR” flashes in the display
If “LOCKED DOOR” is flashing in the display of your range or oven, and the self-clean cycle has not been selected, follow the steps below to reset your control:
With the door open, locate the door jamb switch on the face of the oven. It will look like a small black post or dowel.
Push it in until the oven cavity light goes off, indicating that the oven believes the door is closed.
While you hold the door jamb switch in this position, complete the following steps.
Press the Clean pad, wait 10 seconds.
When the cycle initiates, press the clear/off or cancel pad immediately to cancel it.
Wait 10 seconds for the display to clear.
The door should unlock and there should not be a need for service.
Press the Clean pad.
Close the door.
Slide the latch to lock the door.
Hit the cancel button immediately.
Unlock the door.
If the above does not correct the situation, a service technician will need to check your cooking product. To obtain in or out of warranty repair on Major Appliances, you may call 1-800-GE-CARES (800-432-2737) or schedule service online.
