Will running the GE profile JE1860sb 001 with nothing in it destroy the magnetron


no the big fuse has gone usually 10 amp bigger china body fuse
so get the right bits
has no display so no power

i think your microwave oven
may have a fault in a thing called the diffuser plate
its a square or rectangle of mica a mineral
its used to scatter the waves around the oven for even cooking
it can develop carbon tracking as it changes state
so shorts out the energy to the body of the oven and can eventually blow the fuse as fuses become tired from surges of used energy

or some part of it has a problem exposing some metal parts not earthed to the chassis

magnatrons are the best actual valves every made
almost indestructable other than the heater element {inside the square end metal can is its connections usually welded {dont try to solder them}

so no the magnitron is aok
look for another reason

usually replacing the fuse and defuser and a good clean perhaps sometimes its the plate rotation drive motor plastic drive part
also becomes carbon tracking

causes the same error

good luck

note for all ::
>>
next time buy a stainless steel microwave
from a good maker
and good parts supply of defuser plates as they do go wrong

AFTER SETTING TIME COOK TO 1 MIN 60 SEC AND PUSHING START BUTTON 4O SECS MORE IS ADDED, I.E. TOTAL 2 MINS SHOW ON DISPLAY. CAN I RESET THE THE COMPUTER.


There are sixty seconds in a minute, so 1 min 60 sec is the same as 2 min. If you want 40 seconds less than 2 minutes then set it for 1 min 20 sec or for 80 sec.

Unit is dead after accidentally running it empty.


If you ran it for that long with nothing inside, there is a good chance it self cooked.

It can probably be repaired. The economics of the repair is something you will have to judge for yourself.

To assist you, may i suggest you visit www.repairclinic.com and check on some major parts for your make and model. If the parts = more than 25% of replacement, I think id be moving on. Expect to pay a pro at least $100.00/hr labor. You should NOT do it unless you are skilled at handling delicate and lethal electronics. A microwave can kill. Another thing, after you fix it, you have a lot of $ invested and still have a old machine that ran for 13 + minutes empty.

My microwave has 00:00 where the time or cooking mins should be displayed. I am pushing buttons and nothing changes. I can't use the microwave.


Unplug the microwave for 10 minutes and then replug-in. This will reset the unit.after that if it still behaves abnormally , Press cancel button for 10 seconds and then try pressing the timer adjust buttons.
thanks

Oven won't function after 5 minutes of cook time with nothing in


It's posible that since it was running empty, the magnetron overheated and a thermal cutout or thermostat located on the magnetron opened.

Magnetrons may be protected by a thermostat, which will reset when it cools, or a thermal fuse, which is a one-time use device. It is also possible that in some cases, a thermostat will fail when opened.

In the worst case the magnetron may be damaged due to running empty.

I hope this will solve your issue.

Good Luck.

If my solution proves useful please accept it.
