If it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty and the the manufacturer will fix it free.

They may want you to carry it in to the shop, or they may provide in-home service, depending on the terms of your warranty, found in your owner's manual.

GE Customer Service is here and they should be able to give you info on the nearest GE-authorized servicer.

While you're waiting to get that sorted out, you can check to be sure the outlet is fine.

If so, and it's still dead, i
t may be the fuse, which is usually located behind the grille or on the floor of the oven behind the control panel or between the door switches.

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

There should also be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

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

When door open light flashes and relays clicking. unplugged and waited reset still does same action


This could be an error code indicating a bad primary door switch, bad cavity thermal protector, or a bad fuse.

It would depend on the brand of oven.

We have a Mr Coffee 10 cup thermal programmable coffee maker COF FTTX95-1 The clean light is blinking and I can't figure out what else to do. HELP!


When the clean light is blinking it is saying that the tubes are blocked up with mineral deposits. If you waited until the light in blinking then it is going to take some time for a vinegar clean to work.

Just put vinegar where you normally put the water, and let it perk about 1/3 of the water through, and then shut it off for 30 minutes. Then restart and let it perk another 1/3 through. Let set for 30 minutes. Then let it complete the cycle.

Take a look at the output vinegar, if there is a lot of chunks in it, strain it using a coffee filter and then reuse the same vinegar and do it again. Keep repeating until the light is out and the vinegar no longer get the chunks.

The microwave shuts off after 10 minutes and takes 30 minutes to come back on. Help!!!


It indicates the magnetron is getting to hot "that heats the food" when that happens the thermal fuse opens to protect the magnetron from over heating and shuts it down and waits until it is cooler before it resets. The other problem could be the fan not working or not properly that blows on the magnetron, it helps keeps the temperature regulated so it can run hard. If it turns out the fan is fine, then the magnetron is slowly breaking down until it becomes unusable, which means it will need to be replaced "pricey" or buy new "probably cheaper"

When pushed, the 30 sec button says 3 minutes. none of the display buttons work.


Have you inadvertently programmed your microwave for "autostart"?
Your model microwave has the ability to be programmed to go on at any given time of the day/night, even when you're not home so that you can have a defrosted and cooked meal waiting for you when you get in.
I know that if you hit the 30 sec button or the minute button when your micro is programmed to autostart it will tell you the time that it's programmed to autostart or the amount of time that's left for it continue cooking.

Have you tried unplugging it for a few minutes?
This should clear it's memory and then all you'll have to do is set the time on the regular clock if you want.

Here's where you can download and read your owners manual for further instructions on how to use the autostart feature and everything else:

Microwave Problem:


It may have overheated. Wait 30 minutes and try again. I suggest contacting the manufacturer for repair or replacement. This unit is essentially new and should not do this.
