Question about Westpoint TV-201 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Bought a GE Spacemaker microwave when it is on

Bought a GE Spacemaker microwave . The new microwave when in operation causes interference with the reception on our TV. We have Direct TV service. The previous microwave did not cause this problem. Does anybody have any idea how to correct this problem and could it cause other problems such as possible fire or damage to any other electricial applicances.

Thanks,
Joe

First, check your owner's manual. It should address interference issues.

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

Also check with Direct TV customer service to see what they recommend.

Microwaves manufactured after a specific date are required by the FCC to have a noise filter built in.

You can contact GE customer service to see if yours has one.
GE Customer Service is here.

If not, you may be stuck unless the dealer will let you exchange it for a newer model.

Removed my wall mounted microwave and could not get the microwave off the wall bracket. I now have some holes where the toggle bolts were. Will this interfere with the new installation


It's impossible to say without knowing the old model number and the new model number.

But since you posted under GE, I'll assume that's your brand.

In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. or a fault that is shutting the system down for safety reasons You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

GE Spacemaker microwave oven - Sensor error


Hello :

Many models of the GE microwave have sensors that can detect humidity from the foods you are cooking. This allows the microwave to make adjustments to the power levels used to cook your food. If "Sensor Error" appears, you should either press "Clear" to cancel the mode or leave the food in the appliance longer to give the microwave more time to detect the food.

Press "Time Cook" to manually enter the time if you receive an error message when trying to use the "Sensor Reheat" mode of your GE microwave. The error message may be caused by the food item being too large or too small to detect
..


good luck .

Reset clock, ge spacemaker xl1800 times out after 2-3 seconds


There's a simple fix for this. Unplug the unit. Take off the top grill with 2 screws. Remove the 1 screw that holds the touch pad unit. Lift up on touchpad unit and lift out. Put a piece of aluminum foil inside a large zip lock bag and tape it to the back of the touchpad unit and reassemble. GE put the magnetron to close to the control board causing stray microwaves to interfere with the board. The foil shields it.

Microwave is not turning


Probably the turntable motor has failed.

Has anything ever spilled down in the the floor of the oven?

As long as it's not due to an external cause, it has a one year warranty.

BREAKING MICROWAVE SAFE DISHES


I would recommend having it looked at. Sounds like the magnetron or the maser is malfunctioning and not operating within it limits which could be potentially dangerous.

GE Spacemaker Microwave


This is usually due to a defective or failing magnetron.

When failing, they can emit interference that disrupts the control circuit, or if it has a thermostat on the magnetron, that will disconnect the power until it cools down.

You can save about $50-75 if you remove it from the wall and take it to a GE-authorized servicer. You can find one by calling GE Appliance Service 1-800-848-7620.

Removing it from the wall is ideally a 2-person job and you should have your installation instructions handy. If not, you should be able to find them here: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/

If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
