If appliance runs for approx twenty seconds this is nearly always a magnetron fault usually a cracked magnet or burnt out anode the electronics are detecting an unusual power fluctuation and shutting appliance down for safety you will need service tech to sort.

There are sixty seconds in a minute, so 1 min 60 sec is the same as 2 min. If you want 40 seconds less than 2 minutes then set it for 1 min 20 sec or for 80 sec.

Neff b6774N0gb/02. Inner glass shattered. replaced. Internal fuse blown. replaced. Now microwave working (heating water) for approx 5 sec, then switching off, beeping and showing E1 fault. Also display...

Usually if this model stops after approx 3 secs it is an invertor or mag fault. Check that the aerial cover is clean Page 3 of the breakdown part position 315. If this is really grubby it would be the cause of the door shattering. The PTC is not used on the microwave function so may be an additional fault. Check also the alignment of the door switches as this can also cause a similar fault. My best guess is if you remove the mag, you'll probably find scorching on it and it (and the invertor) will need replacing.

Stops after 2 seconds

Stopping after 2 secs usually means the inverter or magnetron have failed, or worse case scenario both. A microwave can be storing up to 4000 volts even when switched off, so if you're unsure of what you are doing I would suggest that you get an expert to look at it. BSH is the repair section of NEFF 0844 872 8999, the offer a repair plan, where you pay a set amount (Approx 170 pound) which covers your first repair and any further repairs for a year and you can pay by direct debit monthly to spread the cost. The inverter is approx 200 pound and the magnetron is about the same, so it's a pretty good deal as to replace the whole oven is 600-700 pound.

After approx a minute a regular squeak begins, occasionally missing a beat.Heating is fine.

If the "frequency" of the squeaking is a low frequency, the I would suspect the turntable motor or stirrer motor (if so equipped).

If it is a higher frequency, I would suspect the cooling fan or hood fan motor.

GE microwave (JVM1650wh01) shuts off after running just a few seconds

MOST times this is because of a poor air circulation around the unit, especially those built into cupboards.
Make sure the vents are clear of the back wall and that there is a good airflow. The sensor detects temperature rise in about 20 secs and will turn it off.

If the air vents are OK then I would suspect a fault with the sensor itself. It has possibly shifted away from where it should be positioned( vibration). You may have to remove the outer shell casing and see if its in its cradle.

Please rate my help++++ThaNks for using FIXYA

Microwave starts as normanl but cuts out after 5 seconds on all settings?

sounds as either inverter or magnetron is faulty difficult to diagnose although when mag fault usually runs for about 22 secs inverter fails sooner around 5 secs.
