GE Over-the-Stove Profile Microwave

Our GE Profile microwave has started to occasionally stop working after two or three seconds. Display goes blank and the lights on the bottom go out. Then in a couple of seconds the display comes back on. After several cycles of this it will work, sometimes accompanied by a crackling sound for a moment or two. What's wrong and how do I fix it?

Re: GE Over-the-Stove Profile Microwave

GE had a rash of "underperforming" magnetrons on these units. They replace the magnetron, stirrer and high-voltage diode at no charge for parts as long as a GE-authorized service center does the work. Sometimes the unit gets run too long in a failing state and the waveguide and chassis of the oven get damaged. To see if yours is covered, see this bulletin: Otherwise, you need to contact GE Customer Relations at 1-800-386-1215 as soon as possible and tell them your problem and they will put you in touch with a local authorized servicer.

Microwave stopping

That's a bad magnetron. In this case, it will be intermittent until it goes out completely.

You have a 5 to 9-year warranty on the magnetron. See your manual for that.

Demo Mode

Unplug the microwave for at least 3 minutes, then plug it back in, and BEFORE SETTING THE CLOCK, press and hold power level and start for three seconds. This should flash "demo mode off". Set the clock as normal. Enjoy!
