    You have to reset the clock. It doesn't go completely dead. It would work intermittently, but now it does this every time.

    When it does, does it go dead (no display, no beeps when keys pressed) or does it reset so you have to set the clock?

Sadly, we hear of this over and over.

This is due to a defective or loose magnetron causing electrical interference and disruption in the control circuit board.

If your magnetron was recently replaced, it may have loose mounting nuts or bolts or maybe the wire mesh RF gasket was not installed or got pinched.

It may also need a new high-voltage diode and stirrer, and the cavity may be affected.

Details are in their bulletin here. Even if your model is not on the list, the same problem can occur, requiring a kit. The parts kit is similar to this one.

(Your model may use a different kit - this is shown for illustration purposes only).

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

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.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years) but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.

They may send you a replacement magnetron. GE Customer Service is here.

Got a short at or in the switch assembly that is causing this and unit would have to be unpowered and checked to see if one or both switches are bad.

My control panel has locked and I can't unlock it.


If this is a GE Spacemaker model, you can lock or unlock the controls of the oven by pressing and holding the CLEAR/OFF button for 3 to 5 seconds. If this is not a GE Spacemaker, please post back with your correct MODEL NUMBER. I hope this information helps you.

GE Spacemaker shuts off after a few seconds and asks for the clock to be reset


Ge Spacemaker comes on ok but after a few seconds the noise level goes up significantly and it does not heat. It keeps running until the time runs out but it doesn't heat.

Cuts out everytime you put food in, any mode any food, then displays sensor on panel displayed. May run for a few seconds then cuts again Rob.


Hi there,

It could be either the magnetron thermostat or the cavity thermostat would be faulty, depending on the microwave but in most cases it would be a thermostat.
First of all you can try cutting the power to the unit for 5 minutes, then retry it.
Call 800-626-2005 GE costumer care You will probably need to provide your serial number when you call so be sure you have that ready.

Good Luck!!

Thanks
