Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I have a GE microwave that kinda died yesterday or should I say doesn't work the way it should. I've had it for a couple years now. The Model no. is JES1238WH001. When I came home it was beeping. As soon as you shut the door it would automatically go to 6 minutes and start running. When you shut the door nothing would respond. I unplugged it and turned it back on but all it does is beep then give an F3 error then it turns on to 6 minutes and runs. I don't know if this is something worth fixing or if it can even be fixed or just toss it out.

Ge JES0738 LED display is fine but turntable doesn't work, microwave doesn't start. Is it a fuse issue?


No! from the description it is one of the door switches that has become defective. The solution, all the door switches need to be tested to find the bad one.

It seems likely that the cyclotron has failed. If it is under warrantee then I suggest you return it to the place you bought it from to get it repaired. If it is out of warrantee, then you need to decide if the cost of repair is worth it, or whether you just buy another one.

No microwave power (magnetron) - everything else works fine


the magnetron fails on the GE microwaves, it usually starts after the first couple of years, the magnetron has a 5 year warranty on most models, I would look in the owners manual for sure.

Light, fan and timer work but microwave does not


Microwaves are pretty much a non repair item. It will cost you more to fix than it would to replace.

Model 140 (new) stopped heating


If that is a new appliance, I would call GE and ask them to give you a new one or get someone to fix it.
This microwave should have one year warranty.
Hope this helps.
