F3 occurs if the controller detects a key shorted for more than 60 seconds. Luckily, on this model, the "keypanel" as it's called is available as a separate part. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety & disassembly info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering the model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 The "keypanel" is shown as reference number 44 on that exploded view.

SOURCE: Unkown Beeping During Calls

It is hard to tell if this conference phone is installed on a PBX or not? "At meetings" tends to make me believe that it is. Beeping can come from a few sources. If a call is being recorded it is necessary to provide a beep tone so that the parties on the line know that they are being recorded. This is a FCC requirement. You can ask the other party if they are recording the call. Beeping can come from call waiting. It is recommended to turn call waiting off unless you are bridging incoming calls. If a call is on hold you will get a beeping tone. You can check by pressing the flash button and see if there is a second call. If so hangup and your original call should return normally.

F3 on a GE microwave indicates a defective keypad.

The keypad is a thin plastic membrane type that is glued to the plastic control panel frame.

If none or only some of the pads are working, there may be some foreign substance on the circuit board, the keypad connection, or inside the layers of the keypad, the latter of which cannot be repaired.

Trouble is sometimes due to spray cleaner being sprayed directly onto the keypad. Cleaner should be sprayed on the cloth first, then use the cloth to wipe the keypad clean.

Never use an ammonia-based cleaner on plastic as the ammonia can attack and crack it.

A handy person can remove the control panel frame and see if there's any liquid inside on or behind the panel. If so, it is possible to dry it out, but often that does not work.

Another thing is to unlpug the power at the mains for several seconds. Plug it back in and see if it works. A reset may do it.

At power-up, the display should flash or show a text message. If not, a key may be stuck due to a foreign substance or a defective keypad.

If certain keys are not working, there may be some foreign substance at the point where the green or blue plastic strip from the keypad plugs into the circuit board.

To check that, see our critical safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site. You'll find a link to our site in our
listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

1. Be sure the oven is disconnected from the power line while you are taking it apart.

2. The keypad connection is the green or blue translucent plastic strip that plugs into a connector near the edge of the board.

3. There are two tiny tabs (one on each side) of the connector that you can gently pull up on to unlock the connector.

4. Then the keypad strip will lift out. Clean both sides of the end of the strip with a pencil eraser or alcohol-based cleaner if you like, but do not use ammonia-based cleaner. Dry the end of the strip.

5. Put the keypad strip back in, making sure both sides are down fully.

6. While holding the strip down, push the connector back down to lock it.

7. Try the keys again with the door closed.

I have GE JVM1540DN1BB microwawe. It beeps all the time and says "keypad sorted" and service needed. The beep sound is annoying and it beeps every 30 seconds


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Touchpad and Control Panel If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad and control panel assembly are probably defective
Touchpad If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad might be at fault. Generally speaking, if the display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.
User Control and Display Board If the microwave buttons don't work the main control board is most likely defective and will need to be replaced.

Main Control Board If the microwave buttons don't work the main control board is most likely defective and will need to be replaced.

Frigidaire microwave has annoying beep, can it be turned off? model no. FFMV162LQA


The only way to stop the beeping is to push the cancel button then immediately open the door. This is the only microwave Ive ever encountered that doesn't stop the beeping when you either open the door or push the cancel button. To make it even more irritating, the beeps are VERY loud and long. Here is a short you tube video posted by someone who recorded this loud and long beeping I am referring to. https://youtu.be/pDq7LTpPNTY

When the microwave is finished cooking how can I change the beeping so it only goes off once instead of4 times? That drives me crazy and is so annoying. Thanks, Susan


Hi, you cannot change how the microwave oven beeps after it cooking. You can confirm this by going through the user manual yourself....

How do I stop the beep when food is ready (it beeps if you don't remove at the food after intervals)? Sharp R-340


I too have Sharp microwave that constantly beeps at approximately one minute intervals if the food you have been heating isn't removed. It is loud, persistent and extremely annoying. I've opened the machine to try and find the loud speaker but cannot find it (it could be built in to the circuitry?). Any help on this would be appreciated. It's a very unfortunate design flaw on what is otherwise a very good and easy to use microwave.

GE xl 1800 beep


The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.
