    What is your model number?

    Does it always run for a specific amount of time before it stops, or it seemingly random?

The magnetron cooling fan blade is either slipping on the motor shaft or has spun and fallen completely off the shaft. It can be reattached to the shaft as it just slides on. Several well placed drops of 5 minute two-part epoxy from Home Depot or Lowe's dripped into the hole in the fan blade before you slide it back on will insure that it doesn't come off again

Microwave stopped working


Probably a problem with the door latch safety system. This happens every so often with our microwave, which is over 25 years old, and otherwise works perfectly.
If yours is new, it may still be under warranty. If not, there are places that specialize in fixing microwave ovens.
If it is an older, or less expensive oven, it might be time for a new one.

Vent blower won't stop


I had the same problem with the fan not wanting to shut off after the repair. Once I set the clock though I was able to push the button to shut the fan off. So try setting your clock first and see if that helps.

Occasionally, and more frequently now, micro starts to run when the door is opened and stops when the door is closed. it will still operate normally but when you go to take food out, it starts running...


Door switches

If one of the door interlock switches is not switching properly or there is a condensation problem on the sensor control panel, either can cause the turntable/light/oven to come on even though the "Starts" button has not been depressed due to the wiring of the switches.
Check for faulty door switches and/or contaminated actuators.
I hope that helps.

Clock frequently goes blank and needs to be reset


You have a faulty display module due to one or more components leaking. Some models have a seperate display module that can replaced without the complete board having to be replaced. If not, the board needs to be replaced. You need to ask your spares suppliers that have info. on that model.

NN-T774 INVERTER STOPPED WORKING AFTER 4 WEEKS


Check to make sure one of the plastic hooks on the door was not broken off. If both door hook latches are functional then the most likely cause of your problem is one of the latch switches located behind the control panel. These switches will fail if the oven user opens the door frequently BEFORE the cook cycle ends. Always push STOP/RESET before opening any microwave oven door.

GE spacemaker Power goes off and clock needs resetting


Try going to the breaker box and shutting off the power to the microwave for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, turn back on and set the clock. This fixed my clock and turntable both. Apparently turning off the power resets the software in the clock.

Locks up and powers down during use leaves a F2 display on the clock window


Can't tell by pict for sure, IF this is a Microwave that is vented. Is it possible your vent it needs to be cleared. Sounds like possible moisture in the microwave, This would shut it down in the middle of a cycle. The moisture would happen from poor or clogged venting.
