SOURCE: Microwave stops after about 2 seconds, also have to reset the clock each time

TO mdambros

You have a bad magnetron. We see this over and over.

If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years) but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.

You'll save a lot by taking it in yourself.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

TO guest (Panasonic oven)

The door switch you suspected is bad, and it must be replaced. They normally cannot be cleaned or burnished and be reliable.

F2 on a Kitchenaid microwave means you have a shorted keypad.

You have a failed keypad.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

It could have been steam or humidity.

If this is an over the range model, be sure you always use the hood vent exhaust fan when you're cooking on the stove top.

Whether it's a counter top or over the range top, always be aware that the cooling fan is running when it's cooking.

When in doubt feel for air flow through the vents.

Good luck.

Microwave won't set clock


It is most likely the keypad control board has been damaged, first! unplug the microwave oven for 5 minutes, if this works the micopressor will reset, if it fails the control board will need to be replaced, a costly venture.

Our home lost power yesterday, now microwave will not work. Clock is working but it's like the panel is locked. Turned off breaker to try to reset and now on display it indicates 8-:44. Suggestions?


You should be sure that you leave the breaker off for about 15-30 seconds when doing a reset.

If it still won't work right, you either have a defective board or a shorting keypad.

Try the rest several times and note whether the display comes up that same way every time or what.

We can help you with a repair either way.

Details of our service are at our Web site, along with a video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Feel free to contact me directly with your brand, full model number and symptoms.

When you put something in microwave and push for time it will run for about 5 seconds and fan will change tone and it won't heat anything


HELLO.

TO MAKE YOUR MICROWAVE WORK AS REQUIRED BY YOU.TAKE THE RESET STEP

4 Perform a hard reset. Pull the plug out of the wall power supply, and wait a moment. Plug the GE microwave back into the wall power supply to reset any anomalies with the microwave's memory. You will need to reset the time of day if you perform a hard reset.
5 Reset the time of day. Press the "Clock" button, and turn the dial to set the hours. Press the dial to enter. Follow the same procedure for the minutes and a.m. or p.m. Press the "Start" button to start the clock.

Thanks.

When power went off and then came back on, screen on micro wave continually shows demo and I cannot set time


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 and try again.

If it still won't work, then you may have a bad membrane keypad / DP circuit.

If your model is NN-P295SF, the service is here.

Parts can be ordered from Encompass here.

Model # MH7149XFQ - 0. Nothing works. No light when you open the door. The control pad does not respond. The light under the microwave does not work. The clock display shows the digital clock but the clock...


1. Go check your breaker box. Find the one for this outlet, reset. Or just reset every one if U cannot figure that out. 2. if that does not do it..... The ck the Outlet w/ a proper tester (cheap @ builders supply, just a plug in tester w/ lite for volts.... too easy. 3. If neither of these work, find the fuse for the microwave & replace. If not qualified, hire or ask someone who is.... 4. none of these work..... time to buy a new one. gettocar
