When you put something in microwave and push for time it will run for about 5 seconds and fan will change tone and it won't heat anything


HELLO.

TO MAKE YOUR MICROWAVE WORK AS REQUIRED BY YOU.TAKE THE RESET STEP

4 Perform a hard reset. Pull the plug out of the wall power supply, and wait a moment. Plug the GE 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.
5 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.

Thanks.

As soon as I start the cooking cycle, it shuts off with ****** in the display. We have been able to reset the time and date to get it going again, but now that does not work. We recently had new cabinets...


It sounds like a magnetron failure. This link describes a test to see if your magnetron is failing. Please be sure to read the comments near the bottom of the page!

Microwave resets when started


Could you explain what you mean by "resets similar to power cycle after 2 seconds of running"? Do the characters on the display get garbled, or is it like someone just unplugged the oven and plugged it back in? GE had a rash of "underperforming" magnetrons on several models. They would sometimes end up with stirrer damage, bad diodes, waveguide damage, and/or interference which "scrambles the brains" of the unit and makes them reset like they had been unplugged. The usual fix is to replace the magnetron, stirrer and high-voltage diode as a kit, and they used to cover this, but may not any more. Sometimes the unit gets run too long in a failing state and the waveguide and chassis of the oven get damaged. In that case, the oven would have to be replaced. To get the details and see if yours is affected, see this bulletin: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/ge_mw_mag_kit_bulletin.pdf Even if your exact unit is not on the list, you may have this problem. You can contact GE Customer Relations at 1-800-386-1215 and tell them your problem and they will put you in touch with a local authorized servicer. Feel free to post back if you need more info. I appreciate your thoughtful rating of my answer.

WHEN PRESSING COOK TIME OVEN CLICKS ON FOR ONE SECOND AND RESETS CLOCK


Please try on some other power point as if there is loose contact or sparking in point which cause to switch off as soon as you start because of heavy current drawn by oven and clock also resets. If not solved even then must have some short circuit or over loading in timer circuit or magnetron. in this case you have to call for a service engineer.
