Westinghouse 688 electric oven - grill works, oven doesn't, really annoying

There's 2 little buttons on the oven - the left hand one is pushed in and can't get it out. The real estate's solution is to set the time and the oven will work!! [easy if you know how to set the time] I have tried pushing 'all 2' buttons and fiddled, but can't set the time and so oven still doesn't work. Grill works fine. Please, any idea's would be great. Can't find manual online anywhere.

Is it possible that some spray cleaner accidentally got into the controls?

Direct spraying of cleaners on the keypad and steam from the cooktop can damage the controls.

I always recommend that users spray the cleaner on a soft cloth (not on the keypad itself) then wipe the control panel off.

Also, I always recommend non-ammonia cleaners since ammonia can crack and damage plastic.

SOURCE: Microwave not heating up

Check the door switch, when it is faulty the oven will turn on but turntable, fan and magnetron wont operate.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts.

You can also order from MicrowaveSvc , they also provide parts.

SOURCE: microwave not working but oven and grill do

Test the high voltage capacitor, the rectifier diode.or the magnetron.

The diode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, even if power is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.

All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.

Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.

Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts.

GE Profile microwave remove top grill


1. Unplug power.
2. Remove two screws holding grille, either on top of the front edge of the outer case or in the grille itself.
3. The grille should lift right out. In not, you may need to pull it to the left about 1/4".

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

Light replacement


Hi, Remove the 2 screws in the grille, the grille pulls straight out (with the door open is a little easier). Then above the light is a cover plate which is removed by the two screws on the plastic frame. You will see a little tab that allows you to lift that cover plate out gaining access to that bulb. As always you should be safe and turn off the power before you repair any electrical device. Good Luck!

Cannot remove the front grill of GE Micro to replace filter


I have a new ge 1540 and needed to remove the grill to install the charcoal filter.

After removing the two screws on top, you need to slide the grill about 1/2" to the left. Then the grill will wiggle loose and can be removed.

Buttons for light and fan


I had the same problem with the three buttons pushed in.  Here's how I fixed it:
1. turned off power at breaker or pulled plug 2. Unscrewed two screws on top of unit 3. Removed exhaust vent cover/grill by sliding it to the left and out 4. Unscrewed single screw above LCD control panel 5. Removed control panel assembly by sliding it up and out and rested it on a box so wires wouldn't pull out 6. The control board behind the three buttons had dislodged from the clips 7. Secured the control board with the clips and added a little superglue to clips and extra foam padding to keep it from moving. 8. Screwed the control panel back in, powered up, and tested 9. Reattached the exhaust vent and screwed it back in
