Reset for GE Microwave?

Model # JES1142SJ04
The unit is completely dead. Is there a reset function other than unplugging? That did not work.
Thanks!

There's no other reset function. If a reset (unplugging) does not correct it, it will need to be repaired.

If it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free. GE Customer Service is here.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

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

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

I would suspect a blown fuse or the magnetron;s thermal cutout / thermal fuse.

I have similar problem, unplugged unit before vacation, returned to find that after plugging unit into a working receptacle the unit was completely unresponsive - no power to unit. Never had any problem before. Where are "blown fuse or the magnetron;s thermal cutout / thermal fuse." inside the microwave? Looked on diagrams for parts.

GE microwave model JES1142SJ04 does not work when plugged in


Keep your oven unplugged until you contact GE. Some of their units were having problems and were starting on their own later after the owner had left, causing a fire. Not saying that is the problem, but to be safe, please contact them and Keep it Unplugged until you do.

Will not start making coffee push start after 30 second message on screen err2 model kcm5340bo gerald larsen 1-630-323-3112


This is to do with an error in the warming plate function. You may be able to cure this error by completely unplugging the coffee maker from the mains lead and then plugging it back in and trying to brew. If this does not help I would suggest trying to contact the manufacturer to see if it is still under warranty.

Hope this helps and thank you for usinf FixYa

You have a bad cavity switch. I would guess it is the one behind the vent cover, toward the left side of unit. You would need to remove unit from wall. Remove outer housing to expose cavity switch. You can see it from vent cover, I would test all cavity switches before removing from wall. You should have a diagram of unit folded up behind vent cover towards right side of unit. This tells all workings of unit. Will also tell where all cavity switches are.

Stopped working during microwave function


First unplug the unit.
The problem is most likely caused by the thermistor (thermal resistor) failing. This device is located at the outlet vent and will cut power if the unit over heat or catch fire. All microwaves have it. You can test it with an ohm meter. You can get a new one from an electronics store like Radio Shack.
You will have to remove the cover to get to it.
This unit may also have a fuse inside, I do not know if this is the one you changed, but you can look at it. You didn't give a model number so I could not point you to a diagram.

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.

You may have a bad keypad.

Does the digital display light up at all? Is it completely dead? Are you sure it has power? Have you tried another outlet? If the outlet is good and the unit is completely dead, the internal fuse may have blown. You can try to take the cover off (with the unit unplugged) and look for a blown fuse. Try replacing the fuse with an EXACT fuse of the same rating. Try plugging the unit back in again and see if the unit comes back on. If not, you may have a power supply issue or defective Magnetron.

Please let me know what you find and we'll go from there.

Good Luck,
- Jim
