Question about GE JES1289SK Microwave Oven
My microwave oven timer shuts off after about 5 seconds. The convection part of the timer and the grill part of the timer seem to be working. Anyway, if I sent the timer for anything in the microwave portion it'll run about 5 minutes and then shut off and the time appears on the clock. You don't have to reset it or anything. Anyone have any ideas short of throwing it in the garbage?
The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.
Is it 5 seconds or 5 minutes? The difference coulsd be important, but either could indicate a bad magnetron.
Let us know if the hard reset doen't fix it.
Please write back with more details if you need further help.
