Did you check your breaker & outlet?

I would unplug it for 1 minute then plug it back in and try again.

If it still fails, I would contact GE Customer Service for warranty service. They're at http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/contact/

I want to replace an old microwave from 1988: GE Model# JVM130001. What microwave will fit in that space?


Laura, most any over the range microwave should fit that space. It may hang a little below your height but that should not be a problem.

How to I reset the language back to English


Press the Settings or Options button. Each time you press it, you will get a different option (beep tones, 12/24 hour clock, and somewhere in there, language). Look for something that looks like language and select English (or Ingles). Then press Start or Stop or Cancel.

Went to turn on the mic and heard a pop and now no power. think i blew a fuse. changed it and same thing all over again. any ideas???


I had the same thing to happen to our microwave oven. I went and replaced the fuse in it. Power came back on. Then I tried to pop some popcorn in it. 30 seconds after it started, it made a vibrating noise and shut off. It took the fuse but not the curcuit breaker. The microwave is 14 years old. I have just come to the conclusion that there is buildup all inside the motor parts and that it needs to be replaced. The instruction manuel mentions to replace the monitor switch when replacing the fuse. Since I lost the manuel a long time ago, I asked at Lowes and noone knew what that was....I since found out that it was a safety device installed on the microwave oven so that if the door was not shut completely or was out of alignment, it would throw the fuse. Anyway, I am happy with the service we got with this microwave. It has been through several slammed doors and lots of use. We have been very satisfied with our Frigidare Microwave. It has held up well.

How to set clock on sharp microwave


normally you look for the clock ot watch icon. Pressing it once will give you the option for 24 hours setting. Press it twice and it will give you the opportunity to set to 12 hours setting. Using the no. keypad, punch in the time and then repress the clock icon again.

GE Sensor Microwave JES1855 died


Mine went dead after about 6 months. I had problems with my breakers and I found out that it was the microwave that blew all of them. I also found out that this perticular microwave is a fire hazard and should be recalled. It has caused me alot of headache. The breakers in my house are brand new and they are put out by GE also. It caused me to loose the food in my freezer, I did not know my freezer had lost power. It would cause my entire lights to go off and then they would come back on. I have checked around and I found out that the power cord on the back of the unit is very loose. I had a person to come in and look at it, he thinks its the power cord.

NO POWER, POPPED CIRCUIT


Two possible causes.

First (and most likely) the circuit is being overloaded. This kitchen circuit may be shared with another appliance (like the refrigerator) which is drawing enough power when both are running to trip the breaker. A Typical kitchen circuit is 20 amp with #12 wiring. So an 1800 watt microwave might draw 13 or 14 amps while a fridge compressor kicking in can surpass 7 amps before it levels off. If this is an older home the kitchen may have a 15 amp circuit with #14 wiring. If the circuit is a 20 amp you will have to split the appliances onto separate circuits. (Under code a kitchen must have a minimum of 2 separate appliance circuits). If it is a 15 amp you might be able to split them as well or may be looking up upgrading the breaker and the wiring from 15amp #14 to 20 amp #12 (but you could still have the same problem).

The other possibility is a short or loose connection. If splitting appliances onto their own circuits doesn't fix this you would probably want an electrician to come in and check for other underlying causes which could represent a fire hazard.

Hope this helps.

Shuts off, must reset clock


Sounds like you could have a fauly control circuit. Something like when you press the pad the processor does not interpret the information correctly and resets itself. Or the power going to this circuit is being interupted. It is VERY dangerous to work inside of a microwave. So you could get an estimate from a repair shop. But those control boards are expensive. Do not attempt to repair this yourself. For your own safety.
