This is probably a problem on the control panel, which we regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week with a one-year guarantee.

But I'd like to first see the the
"mini-manual" (tech sheet) which should be hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille.

You can scan (at 300 dpi) at least the "schematic diagram" page and e-mail it to me at prototech@usa.net or you can fax it (in "detail" or super fine" mode) toll-free to 866-481-2802.

That way I first can see if anything else you can check might be the problem instead.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Display turn off and the buttons are not clickable


The owner's manual is here. Be sure you have the clock set correctly.

You can also try a hard reset by unplugging the oven for a couple of minutes, plugging it back in, resetting the clock, and trying again.

Hello Our oven (GE Microwave Oven JE2160) is not working, while the touch control panel light is on. I am sure the fuse inside the oven is blown. Can any one help me on: 1. The size of the screw driver /...


If your appliance has absolutely no functions at all, remove it from the mains supply, remove the case, it may be a Torx15 or Allen style screw head, and see where the mains lead goes in to the appliance and follow the cable until you find the main fuse.
ONLY USE THE SAME TYPE AND RATING OF FUSE TO REPLACE IT.

Information on where to aquire a special fuse can be got from the manufacturers web site and browse for dealers.The usual cause of this fuse failure is the door switches are contaminated or sticking. Check the door switches before putting power back on to the appliance.
Hope this helps.

Hi, my problem is with my GE advantium speedcook microwave oven. When using 'speedcook' feature, the oven starts, then there is sparking inside the circuit board area, followed by a loud POP, and this...


  • Select the "Options" menu and adjust the clock display settings if the display is blank. Set the clock if the oven won't start. The clock must be set for the oven to work properly, as oven programming is dependent on the clock.
  • Close the door tightly if the oven won't start. The oven won't start if the door isn't closed. You can identify from the lights whether the oven failing to start is related to the door or to the power supply. If the control panel is illuminated and interior lights are on when you open the oven door, you can be sure the oven is receiving power and any starting problems are due to the door not being closed tightly.
  • Press and hold the "Clear/Off" button if the oven performs strangely. Be sure to hold it for a few seconds. This will reset the GE Advantium.
    But as you mentioned that there is /was a loud noise this is a indication of the unit make any usual noise (groaning, gurgling, etc.?) or was / is it either louder or quieter than normal?It may be as simple as the top door switch or its mount or it may be a bad magnetron or shorted diode.

    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.

    I have a GE Microwave Oven model JE2160. The clock and time are 10 seconds fast per minute.


    The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

    Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.

    Otherwise, the manual may address some settings. You can download GE owner's manuals here.
