This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or possibly a problem on the control panel.

Chances are it was damaged is shipping or handling.

Since it's so new, I would return it for another one.

What can I use to fix a scratch on the inside of the microwave. It is white inside.


The best way might be to used very fine sandpaper to smooth it out, then apply high temperature appliance paint, available at appliance parts stores and big stores like Wal-Mart, etc.

BLACK FINISH ON INSIDE DOOR IS RUBBING OFF


The area will first have to be sanded smooth and cleaned and dried thoroughly.

If the metal is cracked or split, you can use a small amount of steel-based epoxy such as JB-WELD to patch the crack or hole.

Once that dries thoroughly, you can sand it very smooth.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

My GE microwave numbers on thepad quit working. what should i do


Throw the thing out and go out to Wal-Mart and get you a new one.  These things are so cheap now a days that fixing them would outweigh the cost, especially since new ones are more energy efficient and have more bells and whistles.

Cracked seam inside Microwave


It will have to be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly.

Then if the steel seam is actually cracked / separated, then you can apply a very thin bead of steel-based epoxy "J-B WELD". When it dries thoroughly, you can sand it smooth.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

If it's just the paint that's cracked, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly.

Lamp bulb is out


You must remove the outside cover of the microwave to change the bulb.

The light cover inside the microwave should not be removed. It is held in place with contact cement.

For disassembly help see:

The bulb should be available at most grocery stores, home centers, hardware stores, and places like Wal-Mart.

It don't heat anything any more. power is on turns counts food doesn't even get warm. i bought this unit from wal-mart in Joplin Missouri. 4/18/08 Wal-mart will not help me because it out of there 90 day...


one would surely assume that a product would last more than 5 months. of course you know not to put metal in a microwave, so the real question is, have you ever cooked bacon in it? I can assure you that this is a very bad idea, as the grease gets sucked up into the fan and distributed all over the sensitive circuitry inside the unit. mine actually caught on fire while cooking bacon, so now we are back to the skillet. in conclusion, the micron is probaly fried in it and it is not worth fixing. chunk it and get a new one.

RCA microwave I bought at walmart today.


The owner's manual should detail the warranty. If not, I would contact Wal-Mart about it.

Are you having a problem?

If so, and it's less than 30 days since the purchase, Wal-Mart should take it back.

If it's past 30, then you have to contact "RCA" for warranty service.

Non-Stick surface peeling off inside microwave.


Normally you can strip and sand the old paint, get it squeaky clean, and use appliance paint. Yes indeed it is a heat-resistant enamel. You can get it from appliance parts stores, Wal-Mart, or home centers, etc. BUT if it's under warranty I would call GE Customer Relations with your model and serial numbers. They're at 1-800-386-1215 (8-6 ET) and I would also suggest you ask them for a referral to a GE-authorized servide center in your area. Good luck. I appreciate your thoughtful rating of this answer.
