H95, H97, H98 or H99 mean that there's a problem with your inverter, magnetron, or digital programming circuit.

Due to the lethal voltages used and produced in inverters, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.

My Panosonic dimension 4 microwave has started but a "refer to user instructions before use" message up. It still works fine but do you know why it's doing this??

It should only do this after it has lost power and then regained power. Are you unplugging the device in between uses or using a surge protector/power strip switch to turn off the power between uses?
It is just a reminder to new users that they should refer to the manual. It is not reporting that there is anything amiss with the device.

Emerson mw8119sbm power and light is on key pad doesn't work

I can't tell without more exploration what may be the cause, but 1st let's start fresh. Reset the MW by unplugging and replugging the unit. Then set up the clock, etc by following the manual. For reference, go to for instructions. There are many interlock micro-switches that must all work when the door is closed. Take one step at a time, then come back.

What does the code (SE) on a whirlpool microwave mean.locks up and will not reset unless you unplug it

I believe SE means shorted keyboard. You would have to replace the keyboard, which is usually part of the control console.

When I open microwave oven door . close the door again light comes on an plate spins an wont stop unless I unplug it

Inside the door latch, is a safety feature, that prevents the microwave from operating unless the door is closed. This feature can easily become faulty, or even come with the fault already causing the microwave to constantly operate whenever the door is closed.

Microwaves can be very dangerous in regard to holding HEAPS of voltage within the unit. I recommend getting yourself a new microwave, as attempting repairs on any of the modern units can, more often than not, be far more costly then the price of a new one.

Hope this helps.

Hi sharp microwave R-33ST 900w was used to defrost now won't heat anything up how do I change settings back?

It should default to the highest power setting.

If not, you can reset it by unplugging the power for a minute or two, plugging it back in, and setting the clock.

Otherwise, refer to your owner's manual.

I have LG lmhm2017st microwave and some times the buttons won't work but now it inputs 11:11 start all by it self over and over again . If I leave it unplugged for a few minutes it will start to work...

If you have warranty use it asp, from the description the problem is in the keypad "membrane shorting" or the microprocessor control board is becoming intermittent, it will get to the point and stop functioning.

Panasonic microwave S333 just stopped suddenly. I see on the internet that this has happened to others after about 2 yrs use. Any solution suggestion is appreciated.

Did it show an error code in the display?
If it showed H-98 or similar the magnetron has failed.
It is not a customer repairable item. Take it or have an Authorised Panasonic service centre look at it.

GE Microwave JES1334WD Code -P3-

Are you sure it's not F3? That would be a shorted keypad ("membrane panel").

That's usually not too big a job for a DIYer, but if you'd like, we can do that for $39.95 plus parts.

If you or someone you know decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:

One good test is (with power unplugged) to unplug the keypad, then plug the oven back in and see if the error code shows up.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here:

There should also be a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel. It's very helpful when troubleshooting.
