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.

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.

Hotpoint microwave only works a few seconds then shows all 8s in the display


Sounds like its time for a new microwave

You can probably buy a new one cheaper then fixing the old one

Most controls that display 888 something is shorted out on the controller.

Have you tried unplugging it for 5 minutes and plugging back in?

My NN-T994SFR Panasonic Microwave shuts off after 1 second.


My unit shuts off after about 2 seconds. It seems like it tries to go, but it sounds like it stops working and then 1 or 2 more seconds run off and it shuts down. Then you hit start again and it lights up inside and then shuts down. It's only about 2 or 3 years old.Any solutions?

I have a Hotpoint Counter Saver Plus Microwave model RVM1435wd. The turntable does not rotate. How can I fix it?


If your turntable is not going around you may have one of two problems: the coupler under the glass tray may be worn and in need of replacement or the turntable motor needs to be replaced. Hope this helps.

Hotpoint Counter Saver Microwave not working


Please do not try to service. its dangerous to play with the internal parts of a Micro Wave. Most counter tops are pretty inexpensive buy a new one if the warranty is out.

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.
