How do you turn off the turntable in a GE profile microwave


Some models have this option available (we would need to know your model number) but otherwise the only way would be to take apart the microwave and unplug the turntable motor, which I only recommend is done by a licensed technician. Give GE a call for more info at 1-877-959-8688.

Where can I get another GE Sensor Microwave oven #JE 186oWH 04


The likely problem with the turntable is a bad turntable motor. If your microwave is JE1860WH, the motor is part 6549W1S017A, and is available here: http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/search/part/312564/126487 . Other parts for the microwave is http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/microwaves/ge/je1860wh.html .

Unfortunately, I do not know of any source for this model.

I hope the parts source will help with your current microwave problem.

That's probably a shorted relay on the control circuit board.

Turn off the breaker in your electric box and then turn it back on, to see if the controls reset. see if that helps. Otherwise you may have to leave the door open until you can have a repair person check out your microwave.
Check out the manufacturers web site, and see if you unit has a recall.
Good luck.

Ge microwave OTR model HVM1750SM1SS turns itself on


There is a Web site dedicated to this issue. I am aware of a suit involving other older models.

You have a shorting membrane keypad.

If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.


So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.

That rule is even more important in this case.

On this model, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame assembly which comes with a new keypad.

It's actually a pretty easy do it yourself job.

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.

Next, disconnect the strip as shown in the photo below, then remove the screws that hold your circuit board in the old frame.

Then carefully (since the display is made of glass) move your circuit board to the new frame, and reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.

The part number to order is WB07X11056 and you can get it here for $130.51 plus shipping. (That compares to $189.75 direct form GE)

You can also find helpful exploded view diagrams at that link.

Microwave will suddenly turn on, then give "F3" reading


F3 on a GE / Hotpoint microwave means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

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.

If you would like to have us do this repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs nationwide.

But please note that for some GE models, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame assembly which comes with a new keypad.

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame.
That is a simple do-it-yourself job.

Either way, we can let you know what your options and costs would be and send you other helpful info.

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.

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

GE Microwave displaying --F3--


F3 on a GE / Hotpoint microwave means you have a shorting keypad / controls.

There's a chance it can come on by itself and run unattended, which can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open.

On this model, the keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to replace the entire controller assembly.

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.

Then you disconnect the wires and install the new controller.

You can order part number WB07X10903 here for $114.37 (compare that to $174.75 direct from GE!).
