OVEN WOULD SOMETIME COME ON BY ITSELF AND POPCORN WOULD BE IN THE DISPLAY OTHER TIMES IT WOULD JUST READ SENSOR ERROR
This is usually due to a shorted keypad, and this can be very dangerous, with the potential of starting a fire. Until it is fixed, please leave your microwave unplugged when you are not using it!
If it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty.
I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free. GE Customer Service is here. If it's not in warranty, and if you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved. You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here. There
should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the
control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is
very helpful when troubleshooting & testing. If you would like to have us do this for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs. Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help. We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer. William E. Miller email@example.com http://www.microwavedisplay.com

There is no replacement keypad available for this model. If it truly is a fire hazard, replace the unit.

Microwave doesn't work
Sounds like you have a faulty control panel. I would use a meter and test the power from the control board to the magnetron and circuit board. Chances are the control panel is faulty

GE Spacemaker microwave oven - Sensor error
.. Many models of the GE microwave have sensors that can detect humidity from the foods you are cooking. This allows the microwave to make adjustments to the power levels used to cook your food. If "Sensor Error" appears, you should either press "Clear" to cancel the mode or leave the food in the appliance longer to give the microwave more time to detect the food. Press "Time Cook" to manually enter the time if you receive an error message when trying to use the "Sensor Reheat" mode of your GE microwave. The error message may be caused by the food item being too large or too small to detect
good luck .
