GE Spacemeker Microwave Oven xl1800

My oven is approx 3 years old. I believe the control panel is going out .. more and more of the number buttons on the panel don't work when pressed. In addition, the display does not show date/time any more but will show cook time, etc., when the unit is running when using the commands that still work. What parts do I likely need to fix this problem?

Thanks VERY much for your help.

    Thank you. I was looking at the appliancepartspros.com site http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partse... would I just need the membrane (10) and the control panel (11) or would I need other parts as well? Thanks again for your help.

    i have same problem with a 2 - 3 yr old XL 1800. (Came new with new house 2 yrs ago) One by one, the buttons are losing their functionality.

    I have exactly the same problem... a brand new GE Spacemaker XL1800 installed in a new home 2.5 years ago and the control panel buttons appear to be failing one-by-one. This is clearly a design flaw.

The Control Panel is failing. The Control Panel consists of a Keypad, and a Control PC (Printed Citcuit) Board. You can replace it as a complete unit. Not Cheap!!
Good Luck!

    If all numbers on your Readout Display seem right (not distorted), then you can PROBABLY get by with the membrane. Use Care when installing the part.

I have a GE Spacemaker XL1800, about six years old. It heats food fine, but there is a terrible grinding sound while it does so, for the entire time it is running. This has been going on for several...


Personally, I would replace the Microwave. It is bound to be below specification by now if it has been used quite a bit.
Then you will know you will be fine for a few years.

My Ge SpaceMaker XL1800 Microwave Oven won't power on any more.


1.Check power outlet for working.
2.If it is than you have broken fuse inside the m/w.
3. To change the fuse you have to disconnect the power to m/w, take the upper grill off, take the screw on top of control panel, lift the control panel up and removed. The 20 Am fuse located behind this panel.

Microwave stopping


That's a bad magnetron. In this case, it will be intermittent until it goes out completely.

You have a 5 to 9-year warranty on the magnetron. See your manual for that.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

Power level


The numbers DO NOT equal a certain power level Erin. They equal a percentage! This is very confusing. Even the factory reps. can't explain it adequately. I recently replaced my old 600 watt oven with a GE 1100 watt model. The 600 watt unit came with a great cookbook. (I searched the internet but couldn't find one for the GE oven and the factory was no help!) A chicken recipe in the 600 cookbook said cook on high for 30 minutes. Since 600 is approx. half of 1100, I cooked on high for 15 minutes. Result: Uncooked chicken...

The next time I cooked 30 minutes on 50% power (button 5) and It came out OK. I have since used 50% power with meats in cooking bags with good results. Remember to check for correct temp. with a meat thermometer when oven stops. Trial and error is your best test at this point I'm afraid. Also you may want to type "Microwave Conversion Chart" into your browser. You will get some additional information from this. But read carefully!

G.E. Spacemaker XL1800- Loud constant buzzing noise. Help


My microwave was totally dead. Things I discovered: 1) There is an easily replacable fuse accessed by taking off the top front vent cover (two screws on top, gently massage off) and then the inside plastic grill. UNPLUG before doing this! 2) Pop off two wires on either end of fuse holder for safety. Then pop out fuse and replace. For more extensive help, there is an evelope with a wiring diagram inside the case on the inside wall! Very helpful when diagnosing the surface lamp problem (I forgot to plug the ballast back in when I closed up the bottom).

F-3 means shorted touch panel pad. In order to attempt clearing the code yourself, please follow the steps below:

  1. Press CLEAR/OFF or CANCEL.
  2. Program control again.
  3. If the fault code appears again, disconnect power to the microwave for 30 seconds.
  4. Program the cooking function again.
  5. IF it comes back up you should change out the panel hope that helps, good luck
