Hi and Welcome to Just Answer,
Ok, let's take a look at this;

 

 

That is a error code for a bad keypad, unfortunately I can't find a part for you, so I think it will be cheaper to replace the microwave

Expert:  Michael L....JA Appliance Repairman replied 8 years ago.

I will post the answer again from above

F3 error code means the keypad failed.

There is no replacement part.

So in my opionion it would be best to replace the microwave then to have it repaired.
