The extreme heat has opened up one of the thermostats / thermal cutouts (TCOs) in the oven.

If it was the bottom TCO or magnetron TCO, you should be able to access them by just removing the control panel.

But if it's the one on top of the cavity, the oven will have to come out of the wall, then you need to pull of the outer cover..

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

You should locate and look this over first.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.





Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.

How do I replace the inside light on my R-520 ks Sharp Microwave


I don't know the exact model but most MWs have a plastic panel that pops off easily. Some, however you must take the cover off the MW oven. Just a tad more difficult.

I have a whirlpool OTR microwave model MH6130XEB, and have lost all power. There is power to the microwave, but the microwave will not come on. Any ideas?


Call a service guy or if you are up to the project, remove the unit from the area and open it up.
Near where the electrical come into the machine.. there should be a circuit board that may look black because it burnt itself out.
Remove this board and replace it, Put back MW and turn it on

Microwave comes on with door open; discontinued usage; concerned about radiation exposure


yes you are right, do NOT open door when MW is operating. You need to get the "Interlocks looked at. Always ask for a "Quote" before proceeding with any work.

Replace the buttons on a kitchenaid microwave Khhs179lss-5


First, you need to uninstall the microwave (MW) from the cabinet by removing the screws that hold it in place at the top. Open the cabinet doors above the MW to locate the screws.
You will need someone to help you at this point in removing the screws and dropping the MW down. Be sure and unplug the MW before you remove the screws.
Next, you need to take the cover/shell off by locating and removing screws A/R. They are mostly across the back and side bottom.
From there on out, you should be able to methodically find and locate the various fasteners that will get to the button pad.

Can't release child-lock on auto-defrost, or auto-defrost is broken.


Probably the only way to get it is to order a copy of the manual from Tritronics.

Either part number MW-9999-19 or MW-9999-21 will work for your model.

But it may not be worth it, since it will run $12.95 plus shipping.

Find glass turntable replacement part


These are the glass trays listed to match the models you gave (NR961T is actually MR961T) and they are all shown as no longer available from standard suppliers:

MW-7600-04 MW-7600-06 MW-7600-11 MW-7600-13. MW-7600-12 should also work.

You can order one of the -11 or -12 trays by part number here.

It may take a week or two, and they may reply back that they were unable to find one, in which case they will not charge you.

If you can't find one, you can check eBay or Wal-Mart and other stores to see if they have a Rubbermaid or Nordic Ware (NordicWare) wind-up turntable like this "Micro-Go-Round". (I've seen them at Wal-Mart).

In some cases, two microwave-safe plates can serve as a makeshift replacement for a missing tray. You have to find a saucer that fits securely on your turntable support, though. Here;'s a photo of that, too.

Microwave Oven "Error 1"


Error 1 = Short circuit in the MW(microwave) relay.

Maybe the relay have problems in your contacts. In idle state, the relay's contact must be open.
