I would check the door switches for a faulty switch. If it were condensation on the control panel. I would think it would have dried out by now unless it has damaged the control board.

GE Spacemaker suddenly quits during cooking cycle and sometimes displays a PF ... other times simply no display


If it only runs a few seconds then fails, see this FixYa solution. even if your model number is different.

Otherwise, I would suspect the cooling fan may be failing or there is a bad connection.

You're going to have to replace the keypad module and possible the control module (do the keypad first). You can try contacting these folks: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/search.aspx?model=jem31sa%20001%20ge%20spacemaker%20microwave
And see if they have a keypad for your unit. Depending on the age of your microwave, you may be best off replacing the whole microwave.

IT COULD BE A NUMBER OF THINGS RANGING FROM DIODES TO CAPACITORS TO YOUR MAGNATRON OR THERMOSTAST OR TRANSFORMERS. IT'S DIFFICULT TO DIAGNOSE WITHOUT SEEING THIS MICROWAVE. YOU MAY BE BETTER OFF GETTING YOURSELF A DIFFERENT ONE.

No power to GE Spacemaker Microwave


I have model GE Microwave serial # JVM2070SK02. I start to cook something and it shuts off 5~10 seconds. Keyboard is still lit up, but no clock, fan, light and you cannot operate anything on the key pad. Unplug the unit and it resets. Sometimes it cooks, sometimes it doesn't? It is getting more frequent with the shutting down problem?

Assuming that your internal cooling fan is working, I would suspect that your magnetron is failing.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" 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.

I would check the cooling fan, then suspect the magnetron.

New microwave; loud fan when heating items


Since you say it's new, it should be under warranty. I would call GE (see your owner's manual) to get a local authorized service center. Then while you're on the phone with the service center, you can start it up and hold the phone close to it to demonstrate to the technician how loud it is. They should be able to tell you if it will be covered under warranty so you get it fixed free.

Microwave Buzzing, Still Heats, but Turntable And Fan Not Working


This is not safe. If the fan is not running, the magnetron will quickly overheat and be destroyed. We answered this in more depth in the other place you asked it.
