GE Blt In Microwave runs but NO SOUND and shows NO SOUND on control panel
1996 GE Turntable Microwave. Works perfectly except if you would set timer NO sound or NO beep when it shuts off. Or when you hit "Clear" , again NO sound. On the window that shows time remaining to cook, etc, it also says NO SOUND.
Easy fix? Why do I feel it's not. Thanks!!!!

Re: GE Blt In Microwave runs but NO SOUND and shows NO...
A 1996 microwave that is still operating at all is the exception rather than the rule..It is possible to resolve the beeper problem but the costs associated with it probably aren't worth it. To get >11 years use from a microwave without major component failure is great.. I would just live with it.... (Your call)

I'll presume you can program it ( set the length of time you want to cook) Does the timer count down? Does the turntable ( if you have one) turn? If everything else seems to work properly and it just doesn't cook more then likely the magnetron is bad
The turntable system
consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers,
and the tray.
You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should
sound when you rotate it by hand.
yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate
or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or
replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover
of the oven.
You can usually find
helpful exploded view diagrams and order
entering your full model number here.
should also be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit
control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is
very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
our Web site, we have a video
available showing how to remove a typical
over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

on the bottom of most units you can get to the turntable motor with some side cutters,cut the joins. pull the little flap off and there is your motor run a current through it to see if it turns(how much will say on the motor) if not turning there is your problem
