We installed a GE Spacemaker Microwave. I put some potatoes in and the microwave was working, suddenly it went off. No light nothing, it just went completely dead. Came back ON after 15 mins,started...

The main fuse may be intermittent, causing complete power failure, the other possibility is a defective door switch not operating properly, or loose plug in the power feed, I suggest a technician to take closer look at the system because this could prove tricky to find the culprit.

Unit was working than just shut down, the display went dead.


the solutionhas noting to do with reset button or code

what the problem is from the element (heat provider)it is always is silver colour all it means is there is disconnection from it or it is bad.

what you need to do to fix up your oven is to unscrew it and then trace down the wire to the heater (element) but if you did not see any sign of disconnection then you will have to make a change of the element it mean bad .

thank you and thanks for using fixya.

Installed in 2/29/02, The unit stopped working today. Totally dead. I checked the plug (fine), checked the circuit, fine, and power to house is fine.

2 simple things to check: Inside there is a fuse (15 A) check it. Check that the TCOs (thermal cut outs) are closed ie zero resistance across them.

Blown fuse. Remove the outside cover and should be located near the area where the power cord enters the unit.

GE Sensor Microwave JES1855 died

Mine went dead after about 6 months. I had problems with my breakers and I found out that it was the microwave that blew all of them. I also found out that this perticular microwave is a fire hazard and should be recalled. It has caused me alot of headache. The breakers in my house are brand new and they are put out by GE also. It caused me to loose the food in my freezer, I did not know my freezer had lost power. It would cause my entire lights to go off and then they would come back on. I have checked around and I found out that the power cord on the back of the unit is very loose. I had a person to come in and look at it, he thinks its the power cord.

No power

If it goes dead or blows the breaker (or GFI) when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

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.

Then you can get to the door switches to check them.

There should also 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.

Microwave quit working

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

It may also be the high-voltage rectifier diode.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya:

Feel free to post your brand and model so we might be able to give me specific info.
