The magnetron may be failing or overheating.

There is a known issue with many GE models.

This is due to a defective or loose magnetron causing electrical interference and disruption in the control circuit board.

If your magnetron was recently replaced, it may have loose mounting nuts or bolts or the wire mesh RF gasket was not installed or got pinched.

It may also need a new high-voltage diode and stirrer, and the cavity may be affected.

Microwave is locked up

Most microwave ovens are like computers, they lock up and ocassionally need to be "re-booted", or re-powered. 1. Simply unplug the oven, then wait about 10 seconds, plug it back, and check to see if has unlocked itself. If not, continually press the clear or reset button. If that doesn't help, you'll have to get the model number and manufacturer from the label inside the microwave oven.

Whirlpool Microwave Hood Combination MH3184XPS-0 (October 2004), for no reason at all, this morning keeps beeping and running the power setting down from 10 to 1, and just keeps doing it in rapid sequence....

Ours just started doing this exact same thing this past Friday - 12/11/09. What's going on? The cook power just starts beeping all by itself and going from 10 down to 1 over and over again. It may stop momentarily, but then starts again within a minute or so - it's constant until we unplug it. We plug it back in and within a few minutes it starts doing it again. What gives?

I cant turn the microwave oven on without the fuse cutting out

If you got the interior of the unit wet you may just wait a couple of days for it to dry out and it will be ok again. You may also plug your microwave in to another outlet, one that still works when the fuse that blows is unscrewed.

Finally you have a 1000 watt microwave which translates to using 10 amps of power. If you have a 15 amp circuit, looking at the number on the fuse, and you have other things plugged into that circuit like a toaster, toaster oven, coffee pot, hair blow dryer, etc, you may simply have to unplug something else to provide your microwave with the power it needs. good luck.

I have a GE SpacemakerXL Microwave Oven Model JVM1340. The pad is unresponmsive. When pluged in I get a line of eights and then get the message F 3.

Thanks for the opportunity to help! To see if this fault can be cleared, do the following:

  1. If your unit is plugged into an *outlet (most times, this is located over your microwave in small cupboards).
  2. If it is, unplug the cord and wait about 30 seconds.
  3. Plug your microwave back in and see if the panel now works.
  4. Go through all the initial setups such as setting the time.
  5. If the fault does not reappear, then you are good to go. If the fault reappears, you will have to call service or replace the product.
*If your unit is hardwired, find the circuit breaker and turn it off for 30 seconds, then turn the power back on.

If you find my assistance helpful, please rate my service. Thanks for using
