Since you didn't provide make or model number here is the most common problem, the circuit board behind the touch controls is defective, the touch control pad and the circuit board is all sold as one piece, it is expensive, on average around $160 US.

Microwave keeps running with door open


I'd say the door interlock switch has failed, and supplies a connection when it should not. Microwave ovens can be dangerous to anyone poking around inside, even when unplugged, so get a quote from a service tech. You might find that parts+labour is almost as much as a new one.

Microwave radiation being released through an open door is also a hazard, as it is known to cause eye cataracts, so don't get near if the oven does this.

How do you stop, reset or change the remaining time on the Timer on the GE JES1142 microwave? Pressing Clear/Off does nothing. Do you just have to wait for the timer to run out? Manuel is wrong even on how...


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

Sharp microwave 8888 is flashing and I cannot remove


see this steps and fix it. God bless you

Reset the clock. Press "Clock" and the correct time, using the number pads. Press "AM/PM" if applicable, and press "Start" or "Clock" to confirm.

  • 2 Press "Timer On/Off" to reset the timer if nothing on the touch pad will operate. Use the number pads to select a new timed amount, if desired, and press "Timer On/Off" to start. Press again to cancel.
  • 3 Press and hold "Clear/Off" for three seconds if the timer will not function or is blinking when you touch the pads. This will release the "Child Lock" feature. Make a new touch pad selection.
  • 4 Disconnect power to the microwave if following Steps 1 through 3 does not resolve the blinking timer. Wait a few minutes, and then restore power to reset the microwave.

  • However if the problem persist the display board
    main control board is faulty

    Microwave display flashing & beeping.


    You have a failed membrane keypad.

    On this model, GE doesn't make any parts available except the tray and the roller.

    If it's in warranty, they will exchange or repair it.

    It it's out of warranty, you're out of luck.

    I'd advise you to contact GE Customer Service in case they may be able to help you.

    Display only shows 8888 - display buttons do not work.


    try a reset. unplug for 10 mins, plug it back, see if it will work.

    if not , open the housing, see a ribbon cable from the touch pad to the main pc board. remove the ribbon cable for 1 min. re install it back and test the unit.

    be sure to return all cover and screws of the unit before plugging it back. microwaves are hazardous to your health.

    Your keypad has failed.

    It would need a new control panel frame, which comes with the keypad.

    You simply remove the circuit board and plug it into the new frame.

    It is part # FPNLCB070WRK0 and the best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics.

    Panasonic NN-T994SF 1250 watt countertop microwave stopping


    From my research, this sounds like a fairly new model. Consult your user's manual to see if this is a user, or common issue. If nothing is descibed then I would seek possible warranty service, or dealer replacement
