Try checking the door switches. they can get just loose enough to not make good contact. the door may be sagging just a fraction.
good luck

I have a Whirlpool old model # RM278BXV-3 and it has started shutting all the way down when heating things up. Contol panel goes blank and quits heating.


Sounds like the control panel. All the other parts are just brute force parts and either work or they don't. Over heating components on the control board are the probable cause.

after several reviews of this microwave i have found that most people are not satisfied with the model or the company. And that it seems that your problem may consist with the magnetron not being installed correctly sometimes this happens at the factory but can only be replaced by a technician. they are supposed to carry them on their truck at all times. Youll have to call GE and schedule an appt with a tech. and from other testimonies that can prove to be difficult. sorry i couldnt have been of more help and good luck

MICROWAVE WILL NOT HEAT


check the connections on the h.v side because the unit works on 4500 volts and if there are any bad connctions it will not reach its working voltage and will not energize.remove all the connections 1 at a time and tighten all the terminals and try it again.you will not be able to test the components with a digital multimetre as it does not have the range.you need an analoge unit with a 10k scale and a 9 volt battery inside or it will give you falsr readings.teh diode which is thge little black unit with 1 side down to earth should read half way with the laeds on 1 way then when you put it on the opposite side it should not move.the capacitor will make the needle of the multimetre flick up when put onto the terminals both ways.the magnetron should have a short reading on the terminals but with 1 connected to the terminal of the input and 1 to the case it should not read at all,hope this helps regards les
