Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. This issue can be caused due to faulty door switch and/or the clock that has gone bad. To start with check the door hooks and the door-release button. When these are broken, the door switch doesn't activate, so the oven can't work. It can also be due to a stuck or faulty door switch. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

    Mr Smith, Thanks for the information, The latches and switches seem to be ok, problem must be in the clock, Can you tell me if the clock is included in the electronic control panel? Thanks! PB

    If you have already checked the switch and latches then yes the clock is included in the ERC.

The microwave is not heating the food.


When it did heat food before and you used the same settings now, the microwave must be defect.
But before you are sure, put a cup with water in the micro and try to heat that.
Dry food can't be heated in a microwave. There must be some moist in the food if you want to heat it in the microwave.

Tip

Microwave cooking time tip


Do not be in a rush to eat the food when your buzzer sounds. Remember, that the way the microwave functions is to let the food sit for a few minutes when it is done cooking. The food continues cooking and distributes the heat evenly throughout your food. Test for doneness after the standing time.

Clicking sound ge microwave spacemaker xl1400


There should be a buzzer sound that is made by a piezo. If it isn't sounding correctly then it must have a bad solder joint on it, or the ic that controls it is malfunctioning

The buzzer on the keypad control has opened, or one wire has come off due to poor soldering, or the voltage to the buzzer is missing.

Sharp 1200w microwave seems to be tripping lightly (can hear clicking noises)and cause heating to be irregular


Clean the food off the inside top of the microwave Now,Or that noise you are hear will stop along with the microwave. The food gets on the Formica Squire which is how the micro waves heat your food. 1st unplug the Microwave then spray the inside of the unit with something like Fantastic or something strong and use glove so you don't burn you hand,Also if you have a scrub brush use it,And clean all the soap out and raise very well.

GE microwave stopped heating food. adjusting power levels does not remedy.


If you can enter any time or power level on the micro touch pad, and the micro starts and counts down and stops, then your electronic control board (panel) is ok. The problem is in the heating energy components such as magnatron, transformer, capacitor, and diode; these components being very hi voltage and you must know what you are doing (must release the stored energy) so you do not get shocked (even if unplugged). Most often it is the diode or capacitor and it is worth repairing. Goodluck, macgivor..

My spacemaker just stopped heating food. What do


This is a microwave, correct?

I suspect the door lock interface switch(es) are burned out. Unplug it, be mindful of the 25,000 volts in the silver thing. Check the micro switches (look where the door closes on the top right side, probably) two positions, normally open or normally closed. check them for proper operation.

Micro switches are the most common of microwave failures because most of us open the door while the machine is running causing arc at the switch and burning up the little contacts.

Microwave won't heat food.


My Whirlpool microwave, over the stove, stopped working when my son used it to heat his food and a heavy sound came out, like something exploded in it. When I check it, there was nothing broke. Everything works fine except that it does not heat. I will appreciate any help
