Question about Hotpoint JE740WY/GY Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Microwave works fine, but the LED display is not working

The LED display on my GE JE740WY is not working, but all other functions are fine. Is this likely to be the main PCB, the display, a power supply, or something else? Thanks!

    A hard reset -- even after waiting an hour -- does not fix the problem. The display worked fine and then just stopped working all at once; it didn't fade over time.

    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 please let us know if the hard reset does not fix it, and my next question would be:

    Did the display work fine, then just stop working one day or has it gradually faded over time?

Sounds as though you'll have to replace it again. There isn't much else it can be. Is there a chance that the house is not well grounded? Lighting and the such can do this.
given the cost of parts....Look to price shop a new one before fixing this one.

Microwave was working fine. Suddenly stopped.


First thing to try is to check the power point.
If there is power there, but still no activity when you turn it on, no display no lights, it will need to be taken in for service. Sorry for the bad news but hopefully it's just the circuit breaker for your power point.
