I just bought a condo with a GE Spacemaker Mod# JVM1860SD
that was stuck in demo mode. (This mod# has been replaced by the JVM1870*** series)

I called GE twice in two days, and finally got someone who had the solution (and it worked):

  1. Unplug the unit for at least 30 seconds
  2. Plug the unit back in DO NOT SET THE CLOCK
  3. While the unit is still "booting up" and the display screen is lit with gibberish, HOLD THE POWER LEVEL AND THE ZERO BUTTON for at least 5 seconds.
  4. After 5 seconds, the screen will display "demo mode off"
It messed me up at first because the power level and zero pads don't beep when the unit is booting up... but it worked.
- Again, this is for the GE Spacemaker 1860-1870 series models only - The women who gave me instructions said she had different demo mode unlock methods for the 1400, 3670, 2070 etc... so call GE if you have a different model.
P.S. my model looks like this - the keypad setup is key http://products.geappliances.com/ApplProducts/Dispatcher?REQUEST=SPECPAGE&SKU=JVM1870SK&SITEID=GEA

For GE Microwave model#: JVM2070CH02

if stuck in demo mode:

  • turn the microwave off or flip the circuit breakers for 30 seconds to turn microwave off.
  • plug back in or flip the circuit breakers back on
  • hold down the help button and the boost button down at the same time for 3-5 seconds.
  • keep holding them down until the demo mode turns off.

Press and hold the Clear/Off button for three seconds - this may solve the problem. If "controls locked" comes up in the display just press and hold Clear/Off for three seconds again. If this doesn't work, you could try the same procedure with all the other buttons in turn, most each one will turn on/off a special feature, hopefully one being the demo mode. I couldn't find any info about the demo mode specifically - maybe you might have more luck follow this link for the user manuals http://products.geappliances.com/ProdContent/Dispatcher?REQUEST=SKUOBJECTS&DOCUMENT=Use%20and%20Care%20Manual&SKU=SCA2000BAA and this for the installation guide http://genet.geappliances.com/DocSearch/Dispatcher?REQUEST=SEARCHWITHURLCONNECTION - which also contain service centre contact details Hope this helps :)

I have a GE Spacesmaker model #JVM1440BH04 that came on by itself and can't be shut off unless the door is opened. It does not seem to be cooking since nothing heats up unless the cook start buttons are...


The problem is in one of the door switches, "it is defective" this is a highly dangerous situation and should be checked immediately, the microwave oven should unplugged until a appliance repairman looks at it.

Won't heat up


Code "d" means the microwave is in "Demo Mode".
Push and hold the "Kitchen Timer" pad for 5 seconds until you hear two beeps.
If you check carefully, You may also find this info in your user Manual under "Demo/Learning" feature

It says demo mode and there is no heat, everything else works


Have you checked your manual to see how to get out of demo mode? Since it is still in demo mode, you won't be able to use it for anything else. If you don't have the manual, go to GE's website and download the manual there. Also, you can check their site for Support and look for troubleshooting.

Can't get Demo Mode Off


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.

Otherwise, you might see if this is addressed in your owner's manual.

If for some reason you don't have your owner's manual, you can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

GE Microwave DEMO MODE


The owner's manual (which can be downloaded here) doesn't show any demo mode, but it may exist.

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.
