Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

GE Spacemaker XL Microwave

The microwave will beep and come on by itself with the display stating something about freezer time for vegetables. We have unplugged the unit for longer than a day. We plug the unit in again and will work okay for a little time and begins to start on its own again.

We have tried this 5-6 times but this continues to happen.

    I was cleaning the top of the microwave and afterwards the vent fan came on and will not turn off; everything else works - how do you manually dry or blow out the controls?

Sounds like a failing or wet keypad or *maybe* the controller.

Is it possible that some spray cleaner accidentally got into the controls?

I always recommend that users spray the cleaner on a soft cloth (not on the keypad itself) then wipe the control panel off.

Also, I always recommend non-ammonia cleaners since ammonia can crack and damage plastic.

Otherwise, the spray can get into the controls and lock it up or make it act odd.

If it does not dry out over time, it may need to be manually dried or blown out.

The keypad may be damaged or worn out, or control unit may be damaged.

This can usually be fixed economically, but please look over this response and then I'd be happy to help further.

Please rely back to this thread if possible when leaving replies.

Microwave runs for split second then shuts down blowing fuses in the kitchen. GE Spacemaker XL 1800.


Hi .. your problem is most likeliy inside the microwave itself. I would replace it. Or you can take it to a shop that does repairs to get a diagnoses and estimate .. but replacement might be the less costly.

Have a ge spacemaker xl1800 - f3 error


I had the same problem. I removed the grill and opened the control panel as I read an answer from "GENE" on APP (Appliance Pros) that this indicated a short in the circuit board (TouchPad). I was going to replace the faulty circuit board but when I opened the control panel there it was......One wire harness had just came unplugged!! I plugged it in, reassembled and the microwave works again!
