Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
Our ge spacemaker xl 1800 is about 2 1/2 years old. After we are asked to reset the clock (choosing clock, entering 222 then start) the clock is set.
When we try to rerun the microwave, it times out/stops after 2-3 seconds.
Help would be greatly appreciated!
There's a simple fix for this. Unplug the unit. Take off the top grill with 2 screws. Remove the 1 screw that holds the touch pad unit. Lift up on touchpad unit and lift out. Put a piece of aluminum foil inside a large zip lock bag and tape it to the back of the touchpad unit and reassemble. GE put the magnetron to close to the control board causing stray microwaves to interfere with the board. The foil shields it.
