    Maytag over the oven microwave - It will not allow you to use the power level. When you press the time you want, it goes double time with no motor noise only air sound. As you can see I am having trouble articulating the problem.

Hello,

I would advice you reset the microwave oven to fix the abnormalities, follow the procedure to reset your microwave oven.

Press the "Off/Clear' button to cancel anything on the display, and reset the microwave. This is a soft reset and will simply get you out of any program you have started. Press it when the cooking complete reminder appears on the display, for example, and the "Your Food is Ready" message will disappear.

Press the "Off/Clear' button for three seconds to turn the "Control Locked" child lock off.Reset the cooking program if "Off/Clear" was pressed accidentally. For example, press the "Defrost" button again, and turn the dial to select the defrost time you want again. Press "Start."

Perform a hard reset. Pull the plug out of the wall power supply, and wait a moment. Plug the microwave back into the wall power supply to reset any anomalies with the microwave's memory. You will need to reset the time of day if you perform a hard reset.

Reset the time of day. Press the "Clock" button, and turn the dial to set the hours. Press the dial to enter. Follow the same procedure for the minutes and a.m. or p.m. Press the "Start" button to start the clock.

You can use the hard reset, this will help fix the problem, but if after the hard reset, the problem still persist, it means the panel is malfunctioning and will need to be replace.

Take care.

Welcome to Fixya
Rather than let hot air circulate randomly, convection ovens carefully create a uniform temperature with internal fans that circulate hot air.Regular safety and maintenance checks in accordance with manufacturers’ instructions are vitally important with microwave ovens. Any slight drop in power output and food will begin to be incorrectly re-heated, disappointing customers and presenting a food safety hazard.
To program Oven[Specifically for Panasonic Model]

  • Place the food item in the microwave and close the door.
  • Press the "Power Level" button on the microwave control panel until the desired power appears on the display. The first button press will display "P10," which is full power. Each successive press lowers the power level. The lowest level is "P1."
  • Enter the cooking time by pressing the corresponding numbers on the microwave keypad.
  • Start the microwave oven by pressing the "Start" button.

What does e3 mean on a Samsung microwave


Temperature of exhaust air too
High
Let it cool down?
Cause:
The oven cavity gets too hot due to excessive
operation with no load or small load, or due to
some blocking materials around the Air Filter or
Air Exhaust at the back of the oven.
Remedy: • Open the oven door and check if 1) the oven
has been operating with no load or too small
load, 2) the air filter is placed in a wrong
position, or 3) any blocking materials exist
around the Air Exhaust. Cool down the oven (for
approx. 30 min) under the normal temperature.
The oven is back to normal when the error
code "E3" disappears and "ON" appears again
in the display window.
• Unplug the power cord, remove the blocking
materials around the ventilation openings, cool
down the oven (for approx. 30 min) sufficiently,
plug the power cord in again and check if the
error code appears again.
• If the symptom persists even when the oven is
cooled down sufficiently, contact the nearest
service centre

Jennair Microwave Shuts Off after 3 seconds


This is usually a defective or loose bottom door switch or that switch's mount is loose, misaligned or broken.
It's usually caused by opening the door while it's cooking instead of hitting "stop" first) or slamming the door or both.
My help file on door switches is here.

New microwave stopped working after 15 seconds


Possibly the fuse / breaker is tripped, usually all outlets in one room share same breaker. Check breakers (or fuses) or try outlet in differnt room. If the outlet has power, (plugin a lamp to check) and the microwave still does not work, take it back to store for replacement or refund.

Instruction Manual for Sharp Microwave Oven


I can explain that. You enter the power level you want from 0 to high(10) the number corresponds to a percentage of time the cook cycle is ON. 5 being 50%, for each minute of cook time programmed the magnatron will be on 30 seconds and off 30 seconds. You can program anything from 10% to 90% in place of the high or "always on" setting. Eric

GE Profile turned off as soon as it start


If you can program it and the problem occures when you push START. Then the problem is a door switch, or the control panel not having a completed circuit. Think of your control panel as an off-on switch.COOK, the control panel switches on for 100% of the time programed. DEFROST,The control panel turns the Cook-Relay on for 30% and off for 70%, on, off, on, off,for the time you programmed for DEFROST. This is how it works. There is no lowering of the output. The output is 100% anything other than COOk is done in % of time on, % of time off. This is why you can hear a "Bump" when Defrosting. The "Bump" is the Cook-Relay sending power to the High Voltage Side, 30% on, 70% off.
