If you have the kitchen timer set for instance for 10 minutes and it is counting down, and then you want to reheat you coffee for 2 minutes. You would hit either time cook or reheat button and enter 2 minutes ten hit start. The microwave will heat your coffee and show the 2 minute countdown for that. When done it will revert back to what is left on the 10 minute kitchen timer without missing a beat on most microwaves.

Good Afternoon Friend, this is Z. Thank you for your post!
Let's try resetting your microwave by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. It is good to wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on your appliance. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, then it could possibly be a few things: faulty fuse, open thermostat, TCO (thermal cutout), magnetron, a bad connection with the control board or a potential wiring failure. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair your microwave.
