Question about GE Monogram ZE2160SF Convection / Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Microwave stops working after 2-4 minutes

The clock keeps counting down but the fan, light and microwave stop working. If I try to use it later, it works fine again as long as I don't use it more than 2-4 minutes at a time.

    I can hear the main fan running during the first 2-4 minutes. When the microwave shuts down, everything but the timer stops. If the magnatron is bad, would it restart each time again?

    Thanks.

Either the circulation fan that cools the magnatron is bad,or the magnatron is bad itself.

    yes it would--but once it overheats it wont start back up until it cools down.the main fan you hear isnt the fan for the magnatron.it sits on the magnatron itself.

Our microwave, a (built in cabinet with venting), will tend to shut itself down if we cook something longer than, say, 8 minutes straight. No power, lights on panel out. Then a few minutes later i


Not enough venting. Imagine putting your hair dryer on full and putting it that cabinet. Would your venting keep it cool? Your microwave oven uses about the same current

I have a Jvm1090aw. After using the convection oven the microwave will not function. Is this a moisture sensor or?


I have a jvm1090aw microwave oven and for some reason it just stopped working. It will still count down the timer but it won't light up and turn on. Also there is a small microwave icon flashing at the bottom right of the screen. Any ideas? Today I tested it again and started it for 30 seconds. The first 8-10 seconds nothing but silent counting down then it turned on for the last 20 seconds. It then turned on again when I tried it immediately after that but nothing 5 minutes later.

Frigidaire microwave doesn't work


Don't have a fix for your problem, but my Frigidaire microhood just did the exact same thing--about the same age, started cooking some food and it worked for a few minutes and then just stopped--time kept going, light stayed on, but turn table stopped and fan noise cut out. I tried it a few more times and it seemed to fade in and out and then stopped trying.

I PUT A POTATO IN FOR 6 MIN. AND AFTER ABOUT 2 MIN. IT SHUTS DOWN AND A MIN OR SO LATER IT STARTS UP AGAIN ,BUT THE TIME STILL COUNTS DOWN AND THE TURNTABLE IS STILL TURNING, AND YESTERDAY I HAD TO UNPLUG...


it sounds like it is overheating. but if only stops for a minute or so dont know if that would be enough time to cool off.When you start it up can you hear the fan running? does it keep running when it shuts down? if it's not running then thats the problem If the fan is running and shuts down when it shuts down then try shaking the door when you start it up the next time or you can try it the first time just to eliminate it being a faulty interlock switch. let me know about what you find about these two ideas.

Magic Chef won't work - clock works


Does the fan run?
If not, it's a control board fault.
If it does run, it's probably a high voltage problem.

JVM1190 wont cook


You have a blown actuator. This is the device that creates the microwaves that cook the food. The cost of one of these will be as much as a new unit.

No heating, no clock, no timer, otherwise fine!


One of your door interlock switches is defective . I would suggest having it repaired by a qualified repair tech in your area.
