Since it's less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

I have a GE sensor microwave oven. Tried to heat food and sensor eror came on. Everything is running even the timer but no sound but the timer is running. Cant this be reset pls help


HELLO.

This is the solution to reset your microwave.

1 Pressing the clock button will display the time. You can also use this to know what time it is while cooking.

1. Set the clock by pressing the "Clock" button.

2. Turning the dial on the GE sensor microwave oven will display the hour of the day. Once you have found the correct hour, press the dial in.

3. Again, turn the dial to set the minutes of the day. When this is completed, you will need to press the dial in again on the GE sensor microwave oven.

4. When the time and minutes are set, turn the dial again for a.m. or p.m. Then you will need to press the dial in to save the settings.

5. Press the "Start" button to allow the clock to begin on the GE sensor microwave oven.

Thanks.

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 .

please rate !

My new (less than 7 months old) JVM1540 microwave just quit. It was working multipLe times earlier today. The main breaker does not show as being 'tripped' and appears to be working. Help..??


Take the microwave back to where you got it, whatever is going on it should still be covered under warranty. it may just be a fuse but a warranty is a warranty. Make sure to take your manual with you just in case they give you any ****. Warranty is located on pg. 15?

Ge spacemaker model # jvm16505ho1 won't stay running


I have the same problem. It was/is a wiring issue behind the key pad. I unplugged the microwave and took the vent and key pad covers off - heed all warnings. Using leather gloves and needle-noze pliers, I removed the wire ties and reposition the wires. I also checked the plastic connectors for looseness. It's currently working, but for how long who knows. Mine is 3+ years old. I will never by another GE product.

I suggest you don't tackle yourself as the capacitor can hold thousands of volts even w/ the unit unplugged. Be careful.
