GE JVM1850 1000 Watts Microwave Oven ProblemGE JVM1850 1000 Watts Microwave Oven Problem

After leaving this unit plugged in all summer at a house we don't occupy, I have returned this fall to find it not working correctly.

There have probably been several power outages but the GE Range, Wall Oven and Dishwasher all appear to be functioning fine (on same distribution panel)

After removing and restoring power, the unit says "PRESS CLOCK" which I do and it works... however... only the 1, 2, 6, 7, 8, 9 and Turntable ON/OFF switches seem to be working (in addition to the Clock button)

The START, CLEAR and all other buttons do nothing.

The keypad may be bad. Most often they go bad due to moisture from cleaners being sprayed directly on them or steam from the cooktop when the vent fan is not used.

They can also go bad when the unit is stored in an unheated environment where there's a lot of air temperature change (hot during the day, cold at night, etc.)

It may also be some residue on the connections where the keypad plugs into the control board. Unplugging then replugging the keypad can sometimes clean them.

In other cases, a new keypad is needed.

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

HELLO.

Since there is an amount of volts from the outlet, the fault is from the microwave breaker.

The solution is given below.

Reset the microwave breaker.

Take the back cover of the microwave off with a screwdriver.

Inside you will find a motor.

Most microwave motors have a small red reset button on them. Hit that button.

Your microwave should work again if the breaker was the issue.

Thanks

F3 CODE


F3 on a GE / Hotpoint microwave means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and please do not leave it running unattended.

FixYa is currently not notifying us when my Clarification Requests are answered, so please contact me directly with your full model number from the tag on / in the unit so we can help you with free do-it-yourself tips and/or an estimate.

GE XL1800 Micro fan won't shut off after light burned out


The problem appears, at least in part, to the door latch circuitry which cannot be serviced by the owner. If the unit is still in warranty, call GE customer care. If not, replacing the unit is your best bet. I just bought a new GE 1100 watt oven with great features for less than $100 If the door dosen't latch correctly, you could be exposed to dangerous microwave energy.

Does the turntable rotate? If everything but this works (except no heat), you probably have a bad door switch. Here's a discussion of what's involved in replacing it: http://www.fixya.com/support/t267796-kenmore_microwave_hood_combination_over

If the turntable does rotate, I'd suspect a more significant failure, such as the transformer, capacitor, or magnetron. If it's any of these, it's time to replace the unit.
