SOURCE: My GE Profile Microwave/Convection Oven stopped working.

Chances are that the thermostat / thermal cutout / T.C.O. (whichever it uses) has opened.

This can happen when the magnetron overheats, either due to it's failing, or if the internal cooling fan is not working.

It may also that be the 15- or 20A ceramic line fuse or the oven cavity thermostat / thermal cutout / T.C.O. (whichever it uses) has opened.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

You should be able to get the fuse from a home center or local appliance parts store.

Accessing some components for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

Auto Cook not working


If autocook is not working and everything else it, there is an issue with the sensor in the oven that detects the steam, The emission of steam is what triggers that unit to shut off. If it wont cook on any settings then the issue is with the microwave generator not putting out enough power. This could be from a lot of things.

I have a kenmore microwave/convection oven model 721.64289300. The microwave stopped heating up but the convection works fine. Is this repairable.


I would suspect you have a failed cook relay on the control circuit board, but that can be economically repaired.

Details are here, along with a disassembly video.

I worked for a place that repairs appliances and rule of thumb is if a microwave sparks dont bother trying to fix it just replace it.Microwaves work with so many watts sparks could mean a resister is shot witch could be very dangerous and if it stopped functioning thats probably the case.

Microwave plate turner keeps spinning even with door closed and microwave turned off


My microwave is doing this as well; It's a frigidaire model #FGMV154CLFA.

After using the microwave part (it is also convection), the light stays on in the microwave and the turner keeps turning.

And I've only used the convection part of my microwave a couple times and I'm not sure if I was successful. While trying to cook something in convection mode, I pressed convection, then pressed the temp i wanted, then convection, then keyed in the time I wanted the item to cook. The microwave started and the timer started counting down but the countdown stopped with 8 minutes left? I left it alone to see what would happen and it never finished so I restarted the process again.

PS..I've never gotten an error code

R9H84B Sharp Microwave Convection from 6-6-1997, power stopped and turntable stopped. Light works and sounds like the power is working but nothing gets hot.


Is this the unit with the door that swings down like a conventional oven?? I think it is. This sounds like a door switch but could be a magnetron or cook relay on the control PCB.
