Question about GE Microwave Ovens
After about 5 min of cooking with high moisture item (potato, water, etc)water runs down the back wall from behind micro. Repairman says nothing wrong - Tech Service says normal, turn of exhaust fan. Micro under warranty but no help coming. My thought - bad design - has separate cooling fan but cooling air no longer circulate thru micro cavity on this model - air comes in and goes out on component (touch pad) side only. HELP! Suggestion on how to proceed?

Update: I took it back. After speaking to GE, they said that's just how it is, there is no way to silence or quiet it. I took it back and bought an LG. I love it!

sounds to me like the magnatron has shorted out. i don't know of a way to test them unless you have some high dollar equipment. a continuity test prob wont tell you anything. what reading did you get on the cap when you tested it?

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.
If it's still out, the problem may be on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

SOURCE: my microwave doesnt work
The radiation module built into the microwave has burnt out. The way a microwave works is that the radiation module produces radio waves that make the molecules in your food speed up, and the kinetic energy in the food makes it warm. The sound you hear is a fan cooling off the module and the light is just so you can check the food. Because of the nature of the module, it cannot be replaced and the entire machince needs to be replaced.
