Customer Question
I have a GE...

I have a GE built in oven and after a while it beeps and F3 comes up on the screen.What is the problem?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Just a min.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes but it is in a house I rent so I have no idea how old it is.I looked for a model number and there is none.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

It does this everytime we try to bake in it.

The F3 means you have a shorting membrane keypad. You will need to replace the touchpad on the unit to fix that issue. That is common and you can order one with the complete model number from searspartsdirect.com
