Question about GE Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Microwave was completely off when we got up this morning

WE used the microwave at dinner time this morning the unit was completely dead. The breaker is on and the outlet has power. Is there a fuse to check somewhere, and where is it located? I have never had a problem with it and of course it is the only manual I can't find anywhere.

This often is a stuck or faulty door switch and it has blown the interior microwave fuse.

Dead ge microwave


magnetrons work only when the unit is cooking
it smells like an insulation from overheating wire so could be a fuse and failing transformer
take it in for a proper diagnosis and quote but if it is over 2 years old the cost to repair could be more than a replacement unit

My maytag microwave blew the ciruit breaker a several times last night. I reset the circuit breaker each time. Then the last time, I reset the circuit breaker and the microwave did not get power back....


If there's no other appliance on that circuit, then please stop trying to use the microwave. You could be dealing with a dead short, and those sometimes leave people,,,DEAD!

I would be really cautious about trying to use it anymore without checking it first for a direct short.

You need to allow the circuit breaker more time to reset, flip to off and give it 2 minutes, then turn it back on. You should feel the distinctive click, as well as hear it if it's working properly.

Circuit breakers can go bad after repeated failures within a circuit.

The outlet could also be damaged now, but normally it's the circuit breaker getting too hot with repeated failures.

If there are a number of other items on the same circuit, then try the microwave in a plug that you know has no other items being used at the same time, preferably while wearing heavy duty leather insulating gloves to protect yourself from any possible shock. If the circuit breaker blows, you've got a possible electrical short within the microwave.
Good luck!

JVM187osk04 - it would not heat up christmas dinner, then all the lights went out. I assume it got too hot, and has breaker that needs to be tripped back.


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

no their is no breaker on the unit. if you have no lights at all, try the circuit breaker on your home.

if thats ok, you have a major board failure.

My Advantium over is approximately 9 years old. I heated up broccoli last night for dinner and then it just went out. There is completely no light on showing the time and I checked the breaker switch. Do...


check the wall socket to make sure you have electricity to the plug. Secondly then check to see of the appliance "fuse" has blown, simple repair. If not, you have a costly serious issue.

Entered time, pushed start, nothing happened. Circuit breakers are o.k. Unit is only two years old.


If the oven is completely dead I would be looking at the internal monitor fuse, the most likely cause for this to blow is a poorly adjusted interlock switch.

Hope this helps

Danby 1000 Watt Microwave is completely dead. Just stopped working right after heating up a dinner.


you may have just blown a fuse inside the microwave or the transformer inside has now failed and will need replacing but it will need to be looked at to see what exactly happened
