    I will have to get the model number later...but:

    the display lights up with jibberish at first...then moves to "set clock" but keypad unresponsive.



    Inside light comes on, yes.



    No Humming, no noise at all that I can hear.



    After about a minute of "set clock" then F3 comes on and makes a beeping sound.

    Is the display lit?

    Does the inside light come on when you open the door?

    Is there an unusual buzzing or humming sound coming from behind the keypad when the door is either open or closed?

    Does the code F3 ever appear on the display?

    What is the model number?

    (It will be something like JVM1860WB001, etc.)

F3 on a GE / Hotpoint microwave means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

The keypad is part number WB27X10649.

There should be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

If you would like to have us do this repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs of $69.66 for a total of $109.61.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

When power went off and then came back on, screen on micro wave continually shows demo and I cannot set time


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 and try again.

If it still won't work, then you may have a bad membrane keypad / DP circuit.

If your model is NN-P295SF, the service is here.

Parts can be ordered from Encompass here.

GE 1800 XL not heating, no power, except fan works and clock also


Hello :

It could be bad door switch or loose door switch mount . There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

or it could be problem with the control panel .


good luck .

please rate !

GE spacemaker Power goes off and clock needs resetting


Try going to the breaker box and shutting off the power to the microwave for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, turn back on and set the clock. This fixed my clock and turntable both. Apparently turning off the power resets the software in the clock.

I have a GE Microwave Oven model JE2160. The clock and time are 10 seconds fast per minute.


The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.

Otherwise, the manual may address some settings. You can download GE owner's manuals here.
