Question about Westinghouse Microwave Ovens

Open Question

I have a Westinghouse Microwave Model WMW18109 which was manufactured in March 2001. It was manufactured for K-Mart. It was given to me used by a friend of my son, thus I have no manual. Child Lock somehow has been set and my microwave is totally disabled. How do I disable the Child Lock? Thank You, Lynda

SOURCE: Galanz Microwave Oven - Unable to disable child lock

Galanz's website seems to be useless. I tried finding information but kept being told "no data available." So while I can't tell you where to find the manual, here's something to try. Most microwaves get put into lock by pressing and holding one of the buttons for longer than normal, or by pressing one of the buttons several times in a row. Some ovens use the TIMER button. It won't be one of the number keys, but one of the function buttons. So start with a button, press and hold it for at least 5 seconds before you let go. If nothing happens then try another button. If that doesn't solve the problem, then try pressing each function key several times before moving on to the next one. If that still doesn't get it going, maybe a store in your area that sells Galanz will take a look at the book for you. The process should be the same for any similar model.

I have a GE Spacemaker microwave, Model #JVM140H 002, manufactured March, 1990. Sometimes when it is cooking, it switches to a "timer" mode. Other times, I cannot get it to cook - it just goes to...


The problem is in the keypad controller, the microprocessor is mounted on a circuit board along with other parts behind the keypad. Now if this can be repaired it will come down to the availability of a replacement keypad module, you would need to check with the manufacture to see if they carry any stock and price. There might be a possibility that a appliance repairman or tv technician may be able to repair the module if replacement is not available.

I need a manual for a GE turntable microwave oven, manufactured in March 2002, model # JES636WD001.


Go to geappliances.com and click on the "Service and Support" link. Under the drop down menu, locate "Owner's Manuals and Installation Instructions". Type in your model number and your Owner's Manual is available in .pdf (Adobe) format. Save a copy to your PC, or print one out.

NOTE: Before you ask...Although your microwave carries the GE logo, it is manufactured by Hotpoint.

I hope this helps you.

Inside white porcelain paint has defects


It should be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

It's normally enamel on sheet metal, not porcelain.

New Microwavbe that will not work.


Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

It should have a one year warranty, right? If so, Westinghouse should take care of it for you.
