Unit does not work after power outage.

After a power outage the microwave does not operate other than the fan and light in the oven when the door is opened. The unit was unplugged and plugged in again as per the manual with no change. There is no response at the panel from any input on any buttons.

    After learning of my options I then consuted the net to determine the approximate cost of parts and I was able to determine whether or not to have the unit repaired. When I called a repair technician I was able to speak with him knowledgably.

That means that either the control board, or the magnetron inside the microwave had been damaged by the power surge.

Call a qualified technician for repair, or call the service number listed on the owner manual for factory repair or warranty services.

GE Front Load Washer has no power after a power outage. Main breaker has been reset and we have unplugged the unit from the wall. Door is still locked and no lights come on at all.

there could be a fuse in the control board that you can look at
other than that get in a technician as the unit could be damaged from the power surge

We load our machine and start it. After about two minutes it sends an error message door and stops operating even though the door is firmly shut. What is wrong and what can we do?

Sounds like the door switch or motherboard is faulty. Try testing the door switch by disconnecting and splicing the wires from door together to read as door being closed. If it still errors then you have a malfunctioning motherboard. I have seen malfunctioning units that were operating near certain elctronics, and or overhead lights, same happened with ovens near airports. Try keeping all other devices and lights off and test unit, sounds weird, but I have seen many weird instances.
