GE Profile Spacemaker II Microwave won't beep

Unit is just over a year old. Recently the input panel will not "beep" when you input directions, and will not beep when food is done cooking or when the timer hits zero. Food is still apparently cooking fine. Is this fixable?

Hi,

The control board may need to be replaced, check your records to see if the unit is still in warranty, if it is call for repair. If it's not and you’re handy, you can find the part online and replace it yourself, just make sure you unplug it before you work on it. Please contact me if you need help.

My ge profile spacemaker II microwave went dark, no lights of any kind and no sound or response when pressing any button. tried resetting the circuit breaker but no change


Did you check the internal fuse? Often when everything is dark the fuse that protects the microwave is blown. Take the old fuse to your local hardware store and they will have a replacement for you. Should cost less than $5.

My GE profile spacemaker microwave has suddenly quit heating. Would this be the magnetron? If so, my husband is pretty handy, is it difficult to change out?


It's not difficult, but on a GE, there can be a lot of screws to remove!

And some models have a 5-9 year warranty and GE will send you one free.

We may have the service manual which you can download free.

It depends of course, on the model number.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more free information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Active Vent opens and closes continuously while unit is idle


I had GE look at the problem today (my microwave is less than a year old and under warranty). He replaced the cam louver and that seems to have fixed the problem. This is a small motor accessible by removing three screws and the active vent door. The whole visit was less than 15 minutes.<!-- from fixya rte -->

Our GE Profile started beeping and flashing f 3. None of the buttons will work now.


This code will occur if a shorted key panel is detected continuously over 60 seconds. Replace key panel (also called touch pad). Once the key panel is replaced, the issue will be solved.
