F3 is a keypad error,

F3Shorted key panel (touch pad), will occur if a shorted key panel is detected continuously over 60 seconds Replace key panel (touch pad)
o fix the issue you would need to replace the keypad, the part number is, this is a very expensive part, it runs around $179.00, you can order it at the following link most of the time people replace the microwave rather than replace this part because it's so expensive, but that's entirely up to you.
