Put the electric plug on a brand new Haier wicrowave into the electriticy and nothing lights up, nothing happens at all


you changed the plug on a new microwave? Why? You should have just taken it back on warranty and exchanged it..

Microwave display flashing & beeping.


You have a failed membrane keypad.

On this model, GE doesn't make any parts available except the tray and the roller.

If it's in warranty, they will exchange or repair it.

It it's out of warranty, you're out of luck.

I'd advise you to contact GE Customer Service in case they may be able to help you.

My two year old Frigidaire Microwave suddenly stopped cooking. All of the buttons work. The lights, the fan, the timer, and even the cooking timer operate. It's just that the light goes on and the timer...


Check the plug. If the vault is 110v or 220v etc.

If the plug seems to be right, but still not
working, you should buy a new one
with a good name brand you can trust.
It's better than paying for repairs and future repairs.

NO POWER, POPPED CIRCUIT


Two possible causes.

First (and most likely) the circuit is being overloaded. This kitchen circuit may be shared with another appliance (like the refrigerator) which is drawing enough power when both are running to trip the breaker. A Typical kitchen circuit is 20 amp with #12 wiring. So an 1800 watt microwave might draw 13 or 14 amps while a fridge compressor kicking in can surpass 7 amps before it levels off. If this is an older home the kitchen may have a 15 amp circuit with #14 wiring. If the circuit is a 20 amp you will have to split the appliances onto separate circuits. (Under code a kitchen must have a minimum of 2 separate appliance circuits). If it is a 15 amp you might be able to split them as well or may be looking up upgrading the breaker and the wiring from 15amp #14 to 20 amp #12 (but you could still have the same problem).

The other possibility is a short or loose connection. If splitting appliances onto their own circuits doesn't fix this you would probably want an electrician to come in and check for other underlying causes which could represent a fire hazard.

Hope this helps.

Fan and light constantly on


which fan? the exhaust fan or the control board cooling fan? the cooling fan is controlled by a thermostat just behind the control panel. it turns the fan to protect the board from overheating.
