MY GE SPACEMAKER MICROWAVE CUT OF AFTER ABOUT 5 TO 10 SECONDS

WHEN I TURN ON THE MICROWAVE THE DISPLAY IS FLICKERING FROM BRIGHT TO DIM. IT RUNS A VERY SHORT TIME FORM 2 TO 30 SECONDS, BUT MOST TIMES JUST AFTER A BOUT 5 SECONDS IT CUTS OFF AND I HAVE TO RESET THE CLOCK TO START IT AGAIN. IT WAS FIRST ONCE IN A WHILE NOW IT IS CONSTANT. I WAS THINKING A WEEK POWER SUPPLY, BUT I DID NOT SEE ONE ON THE WIRING DIAGRAM. FUSE IS GOOD. NOTHING OBVIOUS BROKEN OR BURNED. SO CAN YOU GIVE ME SOME IDEA WHAT IT MIGHT BEE?

My GE White Spacemaker Microwave just stopped heating-you hear the motor running but the light inside grows bright to dim by a few watts while going thru any cycle of heating. Any answers?


The magnetron has probably failed, there are also two other parts that can be a factor, the high voltage capacitor and diode, the high voltage is generated by these items which in turn heat the food.

Microwave starts and runs 2 seconds and stops. Display is jibberish. After resetting date and time, it will again run 2 seconds and then shuts down again.

Surface lights are not turning off and stay on Bright. Any thoughts on how to fix this?


Unfortunately they are controlled by the circuit board and it is not repairable. The board will have to be replaced.Depending on age of unit you should call manufacturer and see what they say < might repair free>

Ge spacemaker runs but wont heat


Hi, there are three issues that will cause a no heat situation in a microwave. these issue are a failed Magnetron, busted cut-off fuse and, failed diode.

I recommend checking all these area that are located inside the microwave for faults.

The most common issue will be a failed Magnetron.

The diode and, fuse will be located on the noise filter assembly.

Ge spacemaker II microwave. sensor error lite comes on


Sounds to me like you have a bad magnetron tube. Call GE Factory Service as there is either a 5 or 10 year parts warranty. Or schedule a service call online at www.geappliances.com
