Ge pvm2070smss shuts down


It may be a noisy magnetron if the failure occurs in a second or two of hitting "Start" to begin cooking.

See this FixYa solution. even though your model number is different.

Otherwise, if the internal cooling fan is not running when you are cooking, it will shut down after 30-60 seconds or so and stay off until it cools back down.

Powers off immediately after starting


My immediate reaction would be to cut your losses and buy a new unit as sooner or later you will run into a part that is no longer available.

Door won't stay shut, microwave will not start


Contact the maker or Google the model number for "parts"

That part likely will require the unit to be taken apart to replace it.

Kenmore elite microwave 721.80833 stops cooking intermittently


Check the door switches if one is bad it may think the door is being opened and stop the unit from running. If it is from a bad connection it will get worse as it gets hotter while running.

Microwave turns on for 5 seconds, then shuts off. Notice their is a paper cardboard (???) that is screwed into the right side that has a small hole into. Perhaps there is a built in saftery device if this...


To allow us to help you effectively (at no charge), please post a NEW problem to FixYa, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit, as well your symptoms "Microwave turns on for 5 seconds, then shuts off".

Please also not whether the display stays on or shuts off.


The object you're describing is the waveguide cover. It needs to stay clean and secure. If it's damaged, it will need to be replaced.

It provides critical protection for the magnetron.

GE microwave won't turn off


Just checked the GE website. Had the same problem with my 5 year old microwave. GE website says to close and open the door quickly three times. First time I did this it didn't work. Second time I closed the door with some significant force and reopened it more quickly. Worked. Unplugged the microwave, plugged it back in, still fine.

Panasonic microwave oven NN-S960BC/WC begins to operate then stops after about 30 seconds, no warmth, control panel stays on but program ends.


Is it by chance running only 22 seconds before it shuts down?

The 22 seconds is the giveaway. In most cases, this is a problem with the inverter or a bad magnetron.

Due to the lethal voltages used and produced, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.

I would recommend that you contact your nearest Panasonic-authorized servicer. You can find one here.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
