How long does it stay off? 30 to 60 minutes?? Sounds like the cooling fan is not working or air vents on the unit are blocked.... I saw one unit years ago with this complaint that when the customer turned on the MWO, the fan came on and pulled a curtain covering the pantry up to it, blocking the air flow and causing it to overheat and shut off....

My microwave turns completely off... Touch pad and lights inside... I have to wait 10 seconds to 10 minutes and then it turns back on and will ask if you want to set the clock. Sometimes it will let me...


Hi Ben,
This has got to be an intermittent power to the control PCB problem. The control board asking to set the clock means that the CPU has been reset by losing power. First, make sure that the problem is not the outlet by plugging in a small lamp or digital clock to see if it works intermittently or resets. Leave it plugged in for at least 24 hours.
(If using a lamp, put in a small 20 watt light bulb or CFL).
It could also be a bad connection to or at the fuse holder in the microwave oven. If all of the wiring and connections look good, it's most likely a bad connection on the control PCB probably around the transformer on the board. Be careful.......

Display turn off and the buttons are not clickable


The owner's manual is here. Be sure you have the clock set correctly.

You can also try a hard reset by unplugging the oven for a couple of minutes, plugging it back in, resetting the clock, and trying again.

Microwave only stay on for 1.5 minutes at 100% power


Take it back you still have warranty, the problem is the magnetron, or the inverter board, and possibly the keypad control board.

GE spacemaker Power goes off and clock needs resetting


Try going to the breaker box and shutting off the power to the microwave for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, turn back on and set the clock. This fixed my clock and turntable both. Apparently turning off the power resets the software in the clock.

Daewoo built in microwave..when making popcorn or anything that steams a lot, like bacon, it shuts itself down and stays off completely for about 15 minutes...then comes back on like nothing happens,...


Your microwave has a Humidity Sensor and is designed to shut down when too much humidity collects in the microwave. It will start again once humidity level has decreased. Wipe down the inside of your microwave often. If there is already moisture in the unit before you cook pop corn, you're just adding more humidity to it. If this continues to be a problem, I would contact the manufacturer for resolve. If you found any of these suggestions helpful, please rate my solution. D. Lange
