The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

Otherwise, y
ou can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

Let us know if you need further help.

The model number would have helped us give you specific advice, but without it we'll give you generic advice and say it may be a door switch issue.

Microwaves and how they work.

Caption
--> ­T­he microwave oven is one of the great inventions of the 20th century -- millions of homes in America have one. Just think about how many times you use a microwave every day:


Caption
-->
­

­You're running late for work, so there's no time to fix breakfast at home. On your way to the office, you stop to gas up your car. Inside the quickie-mart, you grab a frozen breakfast burrito and pop it in the microwave on the counter. Later that day, you have to work through lunch. By 3:00 p.m., you're starving, so you grab a snack-pa­ck of microwaveable popcorn from the vending machine and pop that in the break-room microwave. That night, after a really long day at work, you're simply too tired to grill out, so you dish up last night's lasagna and heat it up in the microwave...
As you can see, microwave ovens are popular because they cook food in an amazingly short amount of time. They are also extremely efficient in their use of electricity because a microwave oven heats only the food -- and nothing else. In this article, we'll discuss the mystery behind the magic of "meals in a minute" with microwave cooking.

­A m­icrowave oven uses microwaves to heat food. Microwaves are radio waves. In the case of microwave ovens, the commonly used radio wave frequency is roughly 2,500 megahertz (2.5 gigahertz). Radio waves in this frequency range have an interesting property: they are absorbed by water, fats and sugars. When they are absorbed they are converted directly into atomic motion -- heat. Microwaves in this frequency range have another interesting property: they are not absorbed by most plastics, glass or ceramics. Metal reflects microwaves, which is why metal pans do not work well in a microwave oven.

Microwave cooking ­You often hear that microwave ovens cook food "From the inside out." What does that mean? Here's an explanation to help make sense of microwave cooking.
Let's say you want to bake a cake in a conventional oven. Normally you would bake a cake at 350 degrees F or so, but let's say you accidentally set the oven at 600 degrees instead of 350. What is going to happen is that the outside of the cake will burn before the inside even gets warm. In a conventional oven, the heat has to migrate (by conduction) from the outside of the food toward the middle. You also have dry, hot air on the outside of the food evaporating moisture. So the outside can be crispy and brown (for example, bread forms a crust) while the inside is moist.

In microwave cooking, the radio waves penetrate the food and excite water and fat molecules pretty much evenly throughout the food. No heat has to migrate toward the interior by conduction. There is heat everywhere all at once because the molecules are all excited together. There are limits, of course. Radio waves penetrate unevenly in thick pieces of food (they don't make it all the way to the middle), and there are also "hot spots" caused by wave interference, but you get the idea. The whole heating process is different because you are "exciting atoms" rather than "conducting heat."
In a microwave oven, the air in the oven is at room temperature, so there is no way to form a crust. That is why microwavable pastries sometimes come with a little sleeve made out of foil and cardboard. You put the food in the sleeve and then microwave it. The sleeve reacts to microwave energy by becoming very hot. This exterior heat lets the crust become crispy as it would in a conventional oven.

If everything is normal, the magnetron is the likely issue "heats food" and is the heart of the system, I suggest having it checked.

Whirlpool microwave is locked, how to unlock?


It depends on the model but for most: To Lock/Unlock: Touch and hold START and ENTER for 5 second until 2 tones sound and "L" appears on display. Repeat the same if you lock or unlock.

Cheers!

My husbands wants to know how to clean the air filters that are under the spacemaker icrowave oven and above the stove ?


If your unit is venting to the outside, you would be using one or two grease filters, which can be cleaned, usually with warm soapy water.

If your unit is set to recirculate, then you should be using a charcoal filter, which cannot be cleaned, and must be replaced.

Details and instructions are to be found in your owner's manual.

If for some reason you don't have yours, you can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts (including filters) by entering your full model number here.

We have a Kenmore builin icrowave with exhaust hood over the range. The exhaust fan appears to recirculate the air into the kitchen and not sending it out. This causes the cooking smell to remain inside...


some fans have a charcoal filter that needs replacing others are supposed to be vented out side by the roof or out the wall to see if the vent is going outside you will have to unmount the unit tak it down and check and see if it is conected to a duct in the celing or through the wall hope this helps

My microwave oven locked and when I press the clear/off for 3 seconds, it unlocks. After one minute it locks itself again. I can't get it to stay unlocked.


The same thing that Locked it will Unlock it. It is a child proof feature. To unlock it:
  • hold the Clear/Off button down for 3 seconds, until it beeps and the screen will read "Unlocked"

I purchased an intellichef microwave from qvc. the turntable has quit working, can this be fixed or do i need to purchase a new ,icrowave?


I have the same oven and it did the same thing. I fixed it by removing the drip pan and removing 3 screws and poping the plate, the screws are holding down, up you won't be able to remove it all the way out, then clean out all the gunk that has built up in it put plate back in place and screws back in and hopefully that will be enough to get it going again. It worked on mine.
