Question about GE Microwave Ovens
Sensor error can mean a variety of conditions... none of which are unit failure.
If you were in the middle of a cooking program (popcorn, reheat, beverage, potato etc...and opened the door - simply close the door and press clear/off.
Is the unit still operational... heating spinning etc. or is it dead?
If this is the case...that would mean that either the magnetron thermostat or the cavity thermostat would be faulty, depending on the model # - but in most cases it would be a thermostat.
If the unit works properly - there is no harm in using it.
If not - a service call is in order to determine the faulty component.
If you have additional concerns - please use the "Continue With this Expert" option so we are connected in the future.
