    I defrosted some ice cream for one minute. I opened the microwave door while it was still beeping at the end of the cycle. (I was surprised that the ice cream was steaming.) Then when I shut the door I heard a humming sound like it was still working! Although I kept pressing Clear/Off, the sound persisted. The only way I could get it to stop was to disconnect the electrical cord from the outlet. What do I do now - any solutions? The microwave is also a GE #JES1139WL01.

    Can you clarify what the sound is like?

    Is it an electrical arcing, or a rattling, buzzing, humming, etc.

HOW DO I OPERATE IT, EG HOW TO USE IT TO WARM ALREADY COOKED FOOD AND PASTRIES


I usually just put the food in a microwave proof bowl and put it it and push the button number that I think will be hot enough but not so hot it will burn my mouth .1 or 2 minutes is more than enough for most 30 to 50 seconds for coffee and 10 to 15 seconds for pastry

How do you use the kitchen timer and cook at the same time?


If you have the kitchen timer set for instance for 10 minutes and it is counting down, and then you want to reheat you coffee for 2 minutes. You would hit either time cook or reheat button and enter 2 minutes ten hit start. The microwave will heat your coffee and show the 2 minute countdown for that. When done it will revert back to what is left on the 10 minute kitchen timer without missing a beat on most microwaves.

LG microwave intermittently runs


I would try troubleshooting the "defrost circuit". The behavior sounds like the microwave is cooking in the defrost mode, where it actively cooks then stops allowing the food to rotate and the heat to spread then actively cooking again.

Microwave felt very warm on top. after cooling


That's often a sign of impending failure of the magnetron or a failed or failing internal cooling fan.

One should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking, and it's even more critical any time there is a problem or potential problem.

With the model number, we can offer more specific advice or an estimate.

But since FixYa does not notify us of follow-ups, you will need to post a new help request.

Will not cook or will not warm


Your temperature sensor inside on the microwave need to rreplace. It maybe dirty or faulty. Bring your microwave to electronics technician to check it.

Whirlpool MH2175XS microwave/hood combo with oil leak, etc.


This is a very wierd problem that we have been dealing with for years, and never seem to get a correct answer. Have actually seen green slime like oil inside the units before. From what we have heard, is that this oily substance is actually coming out of the blower fan assembly inside the unit. Its like bearing oil from the center support shaft. Will go away over time, but the fan may or may not go bad. Good luck with the mystery oil.

ELECTRICAL POPING SOUNDS


Hi there - I assume you have a rack in the Microwave. What happens is the rack due to putting something in and out of the Microwave some times wears against the back wall of the cooking chamber. As this happens it wears through the paint and exposes the metal casework.

You then get microwave arcing between the metal rack in the microwave and the cooking compartment casing which gives that spitting popping sound. I would say get some white model paint and paint over the scorched spot (as long as its not gone so far as to wear a hole in the case work).

Wait for it to dry and stick the rack back in and try again to warm up a cup of coffee or something and see if it stops.

Also if you pull the grill slightly forward in the holders towards the door and test it you may notice that it doesn't pop as much so I would paint it and pull the grill forward and see if you still get the issue.

Best of luck.

Chances are spills or steam is accumulating during cooking.

After steam or spills, it's best to wipe the moisture away and even leave the door open a while to let it air out.

The "turning slowly when you open the door" you mentioned is probably normal due to door switch timing, unless you feel the door latches or door latch holes may have some grease buildup, in which case they should be cleaned.

Always be sure to hit Stop to halt cooking, and never open the door while it's cooking. That shortens the life of the door switches and can lead to erratic behavior.

If the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly.

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

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