Don't try to fix this yourself, faulty microwaves should be repaired professionaly or replaced.

My microwave is 25 years old, will it be working to maximum efficiency


If all the settings work and the door closes ok . why throw it out ?. It may not be quite as efficient power wise as a brand new one. the few cents extra to run it against the price of a new one, I would stay with old faithful.

It doesn't heat anymore. About 5 years old only.


Check the door safety switch. When they go bad, they oven doesn't know if the door is closed or not. Find them inside on the side opposite the hinge. They go bad because we (read "you and me" open the door with the oven running and that cooks the contacts on these little switches.

Microwave runs but does not heat food either with sensor or manual timing. Occasionall will displasy 'SENSOR ERROR'. Have closed door and pressed CLEAR/OFF per manual instructions, but still does not...


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.

INFO: On GE models, "SENSOR ERROR" appears on the display when:
  • Using the sensor feature, the door was opened before steam could be detected. Do not open the door until stream is sensed and time is shown counting down on the display.
  • Steam was not detected in the maximum amount of time. Use Time Cook to heat for more time.
If the reset didn't fix it:

When you hit Start to cook, do the inside light and turntable come on?

Any unusual noises?

Is it louder or quieter than usual?

Do you have the model number?

These answers will help me judge whether it's in the high voltage section (magnetron, transformer, or diode) or the control section (door switch or control board relay or connection).

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Sensor Error, Funny Smell and Noise


On GE models, "SENSOR ERROR" appears on the display when:
  • Using the sensor feature, the door was opened before steam could be detected. Do not open the door until stream is sensed and time is shown counting down on the display.
  • Steam was not detected in the maximum amount of time. Use Time Cook to heat for more time.
If none of these conditions apply to your situation, then you may have a defective sensor and/or magnetron.

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.

Microwave oven turns off


It could be an overheating magnetron. There is a thermostat inside (mounted to the side of the magnetron) which senses excessive heat and opens up, disconnecting the power to the oven. If that's the case, unplugging it and plugging it back in will not fix it. It will come back on by itself after it cools down. That's another indication that it might be a thermostat kicking out. You might try to further characterize the failure: - happens only when cooking on full power? - also happens when cooking on a low power level? - shuts down every time you use it? - only shuts down after XX amount of time cooking? Once you characterize it more, I can make further suggestions. It may also be a bad connection on the control panel.
