GE microwave: start button doesn't work.

Control panel of GE microwave countertop oven JE-69 got damp from sponge. Heat and dowel pressing has removed moisture and all buttons work now except the all important "start". button. Have applied suction from vacuum, heat from hair dryer and waited for dry-out. Is start controlled with an SCR or relay, are there fuses I should check inside? Unit assembled April 1987, Louisville.

Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

That's probably a failed door switch or door switch mount.

It's a pretty simple do it yourself fix. See this helpful file on door switches.

You can find handy exploded views and order parts by model number here.

But if your cooktop lights failed recently, you have a damaged control circuit board, which we can usually repair for $39.95. Details are here.

The description of the sound lead to burn of the high voltage diode part no 50. Alsoafter this the fuse will also blow out part no 47 at the parts diagram.
In anycase their will need also diagnostic to confirm the diode and fuse or any other parts.

How do you stop, reset or change the remaining time on the Timer on the GE JES1142 microwave? Pressing Clear/Off does nothing. Do you just have to wait for the timer to run out? Manuel is wrong even on how...


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

I have a Miele h5080bm microwave oven. How can I clean the grease of the roof and sides of the microwave?


You can put a microwave safe bowl of water in the oven and heat it to boiling, stop the microwave, then leave the bowl of water in the oven for about 10 to 15 minutes. The steam will loosen the dirt and grease and then it can be wiped with a damp sponge. More stubborn grease my need dish soap on the sponge and a little more elbow grease. Rinse it well with a clean sponge or dish cloth and warm water.

It sounds like you may have a shorted cook relay on the control circuit board which can be repaired simply and inexpensively.

A YouTube video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes, is here.

Control panel on GE Profile Spacemaker microwave not working


You are right the control panel is very expensive, you can try the filter to see if you can get it working, but I must admit a new microwave oven sounds appealing.

Microwave works perfectly but does not heat


Sadly your microwave has done it's last cooking. The mechanism you need to make it cook again would cost you more than a replacement microwave.

Deep hard core cleaning


From GEAppliances.com: Microwave - Cleaning Recommendations To minimize the possibility of electric shock, unplug the microwave from the power supply before attempting any maintenance or cleaning. Spills and spatters clean up easily with a damp, soapy paper towel or sponge. It is best to clean soil as soon as it appears. Baking soda and water may also be used. If the food has cooked onto the interior, heat one cup of water on full power for three minutes. The heat and steam help to soften the food. After the three minutes, allow five additional minutes stand time then clean as usual. A non-abrasive scrubbing pad cleaner works well for stubborn stains. You may use mild dish washing liquid or cleaners specifically listed for cleaning interiors of microwave ovens such as MicroBryte® (wx10x3030) or Microwave Oven Magic®. We do not recommend using other detergent based cleaners because they can cause the plastic parts to crack. You may purchase microwave interior cleaner by calling our parts department at 1-800-626-2002, on-line from GE Parts or from your local grocer. For stainless steel interiors of microwave/convection models, we recommend a plastic, soap-filled scouring pad. Rubbing gently with this pad will help remove soil. For the door surfaces (both interior and exterior) We recommend you use only mild, non-abrasive soaps, or detergents applied with a sponge, or soft cloth. For the control panel Wipe with a soft, damp cloth. Dry immediately with a soft cloth. Do not spray any solution directly onto the controls Important: Commercial Oven Cleaners, abrasive cleaners, or cleaners containing ammonia or bleach (can make the plastic brittle) should not be used on any part of the microwave. -- From me - Maybe local restaurants in your area would have some tips? Otherwise, try a Google search for keywords: cleaning stainless steel oven
