GE Microwave DEMO MODE

Hi, How do you get out of "DEMO MODE" on a GE Spacesmaker XL ? With this feature on, micro doesnt heat. Any ideas? thanks! riken Mine is the JE1590sc and clear doesn't seem to work. Not sure if it's the same demo mode problem but I would like to reset it. I've tried holding clear down for 3 second but nothing. Clear doesn't even stop cooking in progress. I'm worried I'll have to replace the thing for this one button.

Thanks, unplugging it didn't do anything. Everything except that clear button works. I assume I'll need a new button electrical panel. It's not impossible to replace but it seems like a toss-up to put a new $60 part into a 6 year old microwave for something that may work. Too bad there aren't scrap-yard parts for these things. I also hate to toss the thing.

The owner's manual (which can be downloaded here) doesn't show any demo mode, but it may exist.

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.

I have a GE Spacesmaker model #JVM1440BH04 that came on by itself and can't be shut off unless the door is opened. It does not seem to be cooking since nothing heats up unless the cook start buttons are...


The problem is in one of the door switches, "it is defective" this is a highly dangerous situation and should be checked immediately, the microwave oven should unplugged until a appliance repairman looks at it.

My GE doesn't have a Demo mode but say we have a power failure. It won't let me use it until I set the clock.

Try that and see if it helps

Won't heat up


Code "d" means the microwave is in "Demo Mode".
Push and hold the "Kitchen Timer" pad for 5 seconds until you hear two beeps.
If you check carefully, You may also find this info in your user Manual under "Demo/Learning" feature

Can't get Demo Mode Off


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.

Otherwise, you might see if this is addressed in your owner's manual.

If for some reason you don't have your owner's manual, you can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

GE Microwave DEMO MODE


I just bought a condo with a GE Spacemaker Mod# JVM1860SD
that was stuck in demo mode. (This mod# has been replaced by the JVM1870*** series)

I called GE twice in two days, and finally got someone who had the solution (and it worked):

  1. Unplug the unit for at least 30 seconds
  2. Plug the unit back in DO NOT SET THE CLOCK
  3. While the unit is still "booting up" and the display screen is lit with gibberish, HOLD THE POWER LEVEL AND THE ZERO BUTTON for at least 5 seconds.
  4. After 5 seconds, the screen will display "demo mode off"
It messed me up at first because the power level and zero pads don't beep when the unit is booting up... but it worked.
- Again, this is for the GE Spacemaker 1860-1870 series models only - The women who gave me instructions said she had different demo mode unlock methods for the 1400, 3670, 2070 etc... so call GE if you have a different model.
P.S. my model looks like this - the keypad setup is key http://products.geappliances.com/ApplProducts/Dispatcher?REQUEST=SPECPAGE&SKU=JVM1870SK&SITEID=GEA
