SOURCE: buzz, plastic smell and no heat

Chances are you have a magnetron that's failing. GE had a rash of "underperforming" magnetrons on these units. They replace the magnetron, stirrer and high-voltage diode at no charge for parts as long as a GE-authorized service center does the work. Sometimes the unit gets run too long in a failing state and the waveguide and chassis of the oven get damaged. The bulletin shows you where tyo check. To see if yours is covered, see this bulletin: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/ge_mw_mag_kit_bulletin.pdf Otherwise, you need to contact GE Customer Relations at 1-800-386-1215 as soon as possible and tell them your problem and they will put you in touch with a local authorized servicer.

I would suggest that you try it for a minute or so on the very lowest power level and see if it shuts off. If so, please post again with more detail about how it fails, such as whether it loses all power as if someone unplugged it or just acts as if someone hit the STOP button.

SOURCE: My Microwave does not heat up or cook...

Our MW8111SB just started to overheat. The vents on the side and bottom are not obstructed, but once the microwave is turned on it begins to get excessively hot.

SOURCE: Panasonic Dimension 4 Turbo Bake

Your Magnatron is most likely to have failed, its an expensive part and on a turbo 4 could be 2M236-M42. Unfortunatly this appears to fail due to reduced air flow. So if you do replace it I would clean the rear grills completely to increase the airflow within the oven.

If you use a sensor function, the sensor may be obstructed, please clean the sides and top of your microwave with a dishcloth, warm water, and soap to dislodge any rough or stained spots.
If setting a timer, when setting to bake please pay close attention to the unit of measure so that you set it right, minutes vs. hours as you may leave the oven to do its business and return without noticing it did exactly what you told it to do but you had thought you entered a longer time.

Our Whirlpool over the range microwave makes a clicking sound for a few seconds then shuts the microwave off. The microwave is unusable. The sound seems to be coming from the control panel.


If the cooling fan is not working, that would explain the shutdown problem. The function of the fan is to cool the magnetron down when it is warming or cooking the food, if the fan fails to run, the thermal fuse will detect heat rise causing a shutdown with in 5 seconds or more, the clicking suggest fan issues. I would recommend a whirlpool technician to go through the system.

Runs for about 20 seconds then shuts off


In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. or a fault that is shutting the system down for safety reasons You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man.
Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

Dead microwave


There are replacable fuses inside. Taking the microwave apart requires removal of a lot of screws and the cover that can be rather bulky. make sure it's unplugged and safe before you begin. you can get replacement fuses at radio shack, ect. be sure to buy the same type and amperage. if the blow a second time there may be other issues.

Try unplugging it for 15 to 20 sec. Still won't work? Try unplugging longer.

Timer Shuts off after 5 seconds


The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Is it 5 seconds or 5 minutes? The difference coulsd be important, but either could indicate a bad magnetron.

Let us know if the hard reset doen't fix it.

Please write back with more details if you need further help.

We appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
