Question about GE JE1840GB-GC Microwave Oven

1 Answer

My little girl pushed the start button and it ran for an unknown amount of time (but less than an hour) without anything in it. We found it still running and very hot. After we stopped it, it totally powered down and now won't do anything. No lights, not microwave, nothing. Its no the house breaker, I've checked.

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



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.

Hello; Panasonic NN-H275 Over The Range Microwave - door stuck and cannot be opened. Thank you for your help. Regards, Vasily

Dear Vasilyk,
I feel your pain. I successfully repaired mine but don't know how long it will last (3 days now). Behind the touch pad there are two arms that the push button pivots on. The arm on the right was cracked where it attaches to the back of the touch pad. This allows the arm to move/give which shortens the amount of travel the button can make when you push it. After researching glues online I settled on hot glue to repair. I am hoping it holds up to the heat but from what I found out this is about the only glue that will stick to this type of plastic. I removed the back of the button and put a substantial amount of hot glue all around the base of the cracked arm and as far up the arm as possible. The arm is now stiff again and does not flex/give. I reassembled, and low and behold, it now works again. Like I said though, I don't know how long it will last and do not have a lot of faith in hot glue. I have called Panasonic numerous times to price the part but every time I call they give me a different part number with price varying $8-$40. To get the new arms I believe the entire touch pad has to be replaced. Also I could not figure out how to remove the actual button that you push without damaging it, which does not come with the touch pad. When I release it from the rear and try to push it out through the front it seeems to catch on a lip or something, did not want to damage it so gave up. The button does not need removes to repair but I think it will need removed to replace touchpad. Hope this helps.

My nespresso started suddenly runnnig too short. Please help. Joe

Next time you fill your cup, try holding the button in until it gets to the desired level then let it go.

That should reset the fill amount setting so that from then on it fills to that amount when you just push the button once like you normally do.

Good luck.

I do not have the manual. How do I change the poiwer level on a Frigidaire Microwave model FMT116E1W

After setting the time amount before you hit the start button, push the power button with each push it should indicate a different power level if not you've got to use the keypad, for example, 50 is 50% power etc.

Emerson microwave, #MW8119SB, push start button to start cooking

Replace the fuse with a ceramic fuse from Home depot! costs less than $3 and it will fix the problem. I had all the same problems as everyone else, you name it my microwave had it! you must remember replace it with a ceramic fuse! not a glass one. I know people say its the switchboard and all that nonsence but I promise you, the fuse plays a majoe roll in the microwave not working properly. Even though it doesnt look broken, a junky fuse can cause your appliance to do very strange things. I replaced mine 6 months ago and it works like its fresh out of the box.

GE Profile Advantium Wall Oven 240 volts 950 Watts

How long does it run before it fails? Does it look like the display is getting scrambled characters? I'm leaning toward a bad magnetron, but it may be more or less than that. If you can give more details and especially the actual full model number (as opposed to the model name Advantium 120) that would help. Thanks!
