    Hi - Ours does this too!! But then every so often it works fine. Driving us crazy. Service call is $100.....would like to fix it ourselves. Could it have anything to do with the vents, filters?

    My microwave shuts off in about 2-10 seconds and ask to have the clock reset, Every once and a while it will go past the first ten seconds and works, but has gotten worse.

    I replaced the Magnatron Tube and the HV diode, Stirrer this made the oven run for a second and clock remains set. Still will not cook I think I should have went with the posters repair of the HV Capacitor. I could not get it to spark or discharge with several attempts. I will replace it next and hope this is the fix. The kit I bought above is a updated fix for these models, got it on Ebay from the Appliance Doctor for $85.00

    Same as everybody else's. Except when I remove controll panel and run microwave it seems to run just fine. It seems like some wiring would be loose, but I am unable to locate the problem.

  • tottogalli Apr 21, 2009

    Set clock and date , try to start and it shuts off also. I see 2 possible problems, the magnetron and the voltage regulator. Looks like the magnetron is covered for 10 years. Can anyone confirm if the problem is from the magnetron or the regulator? thanks!

I found an envelope with troubleshooting info inside the microwave on the left side behind the front vent. A troubleshooting flowchart was included which indicates that this problem is caused by the high voltage capacitor. I got mine out pretty easy and ordered one from appliancepartspros.com for $55 (which includes expedited shipping. I hope this info helps.

Microwave shuts off after a few seconds


We are all in the same boat. It is very annoying. I think it is a sensor tripping.

Timer Shuts off after 5 seconds


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

Is it 5 seconds or 5 minutes? The difference coulsd be important, but either could indicate a bad magnetron.

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

Please write back with more details if you need further help.

I tried a solution posted on another posting http://www.fixya.com/support/t242480-stops_cooking by placing the conductive plastic behind the control panel and it worked.

Shuts off, must reset clock


Sounds like you could have a fauly control circuit. Something like when you press the pad the processor does not interpret the information correctly and resets itself. Or the power going to this circuit is being interupted. It is VERY dangerous to work inside of a microwave. So you could get an estimate from a repair shop. But those control boards are expensive. Do not attempt to repair this yourself. For your own safety.

Shorting out


Sounds like the units main elecrtonic control board. You can contact your local parts house for the parts as they should have them or call GE at the #b in the owners manual. I must advise you that there is a very hi voltage inside these microwaves so you must have some know how on working on large appliace and if not PLEASE seek a pro to assit you in this repair. Good Luck
