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

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

It worked yesterday morning, but now nothing.... The display is lit up, but nothing happens when I push on the numbers.


If you have got the manual, I would go about this as you were starting the oven for the first time. Start with setting the clock, if that works the rest should be easy, unless it is the on/off button is not working. Then you will have to take the micro to an electrician. Kolbrun

GE 1800 XL not heating, no power, except fan works and clock also


Hello :

It could be bad door switch or loose door switch mount . There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

or it could be problem with the control panel .


good luck .

please rate !

The main power fuse inside the MW may have been blown from the steam shorting out the circuitry. If so this fuse probably can be replaced. Lowes has replacement fuses.

Clock and timer on Whirlpool GH7155XHS micro/hood are running slow. Clock loses about 10min/hr and kitchen timer countdown is slow.


I've just fixed a very similar problem with a 10-yr-old NEC microwave oven.

Disconnect AC power, take the top cover off, go through the unit and tighten all screws, particularly those connecting ground wires to the chassis and those fixing major components like the power transformer and magnetron to the chassis.

No heat micro keeps cycling through all programsdemo in cook/bx


My GE doesn't have a Demo mode but say we have a power failure. It won't let me use it until I set the clock.

Try that and see if it helps
