Question about Microwave Ovens
I have a 9 year old GE SpacesaverXL Microwave Oven (JVM1450BA01). It has stopped heating, displays "Sensor Error" near end of cooking time, makes a low growling sound when turned on and leaves a funny odor in the air if I turn it on?
Should I replace the Magnatron or just get a new oven?
On GE models, "SENSOR ERROR" appears on the display when:
The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.
If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.
